On the hunt for new wall to wall carpeting? Purchasing the right carpet involves so much more than just finding a style and color that you’re in love with. In fact, you’ll have to consider a number of important factors. It’s best to research the options available to you before you head to your local flooring store. This will ensure that you get the best bang for your buck.
When shopping for a carpet you must first think of function. You’ll have to think about factors such as:
In what room will this carpet be installed?
Does the room receive heavy or light traffic?
Will the carpet be installed near outdoor spaces?
Will I be able to keep up with the required maintenance?
The answers to these questions are essential because it helps you determine what fiber, color and texture carpet you should install.
Compare Shades and Patterns
There are literally hundreds of thousands of carpets featuring different colors, patterns, and styles that makes the carpet selection process overwhelming. If you’re having trouble settling on a shade you can narrow it done by selecting a shade that matches the overall mood and tone of the room it’s going to be installed in. Greens and lighter shades of blue can have a calming effect, while darker hues are great for masking the inevitable.
Warm tones such as red and gold will open up space. However, before you make the final decision be sure to take home a sample so that you can see how it will look in a specific room especially in natural light.
You should be well informed of the maintenance a carpet will require before you make the decision to buy it. If you have children or pets you’ll want to steer clear from high-end carpets and fibers that are hard to clean. Instead, opt for carpets that are stain resistant. Highly textured rugs will conceal footprints and tracks from the vacuum cleaner.
