Carpet is a favorite flooring option for homeowners, especially in bedrooms. It comes in a variety of colors, materials and textures. Carpet technology has improved over the years, and modern carpets have stain-resistant qualities. It’s also the most cost-effective flooring option on the market. Carpets come in various types, such as wool, nylon, polypropylene, acrylic, and other synthetic materials. There are several benefits associated with using carpet over other flooring options.
A carpeted floor is a safer floor as the soft surface and cushioned under-padding not only reduce the impact of a fall, but also the likelihood of it happening in the first place. Carpet is also much quieter to walk on than other types of flooring and can help absorb noise. It can mask sounds, such as footsteps and squeaky floors.
Floorworld stores carry a wide range of carpet choices to fit any room, lifestyle, budget, and timeline. Whether you’re putting in new carpet or installing carpet tiles and carpet padding, we have the carpeting you’re looking for. Colour is an essential factor when buying a carpet, as it can change the feel of the room immensely. We offer various carpet colors, from neutrals, lights, darks, and bolder colors. So, whether you are looking for a lighter color to blend in to suit any interior design or a more daring color to make your carpet stand out, we have it all.
Any carpet can be used in any room, but different types are more prevalent in certain rooms. For example, with its distinctive loop pattern, Berber carpet works well in basements, hallways, and stairs. Textured carpet is typically used in bedrooms, family rooms, offices, basements, and hallways. Pattern carpet is famous in offices, hallways, stairs, family rooms and bedrooms.
Carpet tiles can be easier to install and maintain than rolled carpets, offer versatile design options, and are highly stain-resistant. Carpet tiles have more visible seams compared to carpet rolls. If you have kids or pets, try carpet tile instead of rolled carpeting. Rather than replacing the entire room after a few years of spills and stains, you can replace single tiles as needed to keep your carpet looking fresh and new.
It’s critical to select the right carpet for your stairs as stairs get much wear, plus the carpet has to be bent over the edges of each step. A cut-pile carpet is better than a looped pile, as the spaces between the loops tend to open where the carpet curls or bends over the stairs.
The ideal choice would be a woven wool carpet. Woolen carpets are the most durable, and their woven backing helps keep each piece of yarn in place. Area rugs are a popular flooring choice because they come in various trends, colors and designs, are affordable and can be swapped among rooms.
Protect your family by choosing carpets made of natural products like wool and other organic materials. Presented with many colors and designs, selecting the right carpet might be the most challenging part of your buying decision. Narrow down your search by choosing shades that match the overall mood or tone you want to set for each room.
Stain-resistant carpets can eliminate the frustration associated with spills and may cut your cleaning time. One of the best ways to ensure you’ll be satisfied with your new rug is to stick with carpeting you can maintain easily.
Even the most luxurious carpet doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Shop around to find a carpet that fits your lifestyle and budget. Make the most of any budget by choosing the best carpet for each room. For example, stain-resistant products may be worth the splurge in your busy family room, but more affordable low-traffic carpeting may be fine for your guest rooms.
Steam cleaning is a popular way to clean carpets because of its deep cleaning capabilities. A fine mist of steam and detergent is sprayed into the carpet to loosen and free up the dirt, which is then sucked up by the vacuum.
Some carpets have been specifically designed to prevent pet stains from soaking through to your carpet padding, where the moisture can foster bacteria and mold growth. You might also consider carpet tiles, which make replacing damaged sections of the carpet easier.
Before you make your choice, you should look at several factors like traffic, budget, lifetime, moisture, children, and pets. With traffic, you should consider whether the carpet is for the bedroom where there will be minimal wear and tear, or for a hallway or stairway which we use most. If you have children and pets, there would likely be spills and accidents. It would help if you considered these things before choosing. You can also consider if you want the carpet to last long or planning to change it in a few years’ time before choosing any carpet.
