Residential carpet


Residential carpet

Your home is your fortress, and putting money into making it look and feel its best is an investment that pays back. Whether your current carpet is old and tattered or you just want to upgrade to something that's more aesthetically- pleasing and ties the room together, new carpet is a great consideration.

There are some general things to keep in mind as you begin your search for the perfect carpet that will help you achieve your home improvement goals.

Where and where not to install carpet

There’s a place for everything, and carpet is certainly one of them. There are popular areas where carpet is typically installed, and a few of these include:

  • Living room
  • Guest room
  • Bedroom
  • Entertainment room

However, you should think twice before installation in certain areas of the home. For example, the mudroom is not a prime choice for obvious reasons.

Furthermore, any room where plumbing could be a concern should make you think twice as leaks could irreparably damage the material. A flooring professional can help you decide whether carpet for a specific area of the home would be a good investment.
