Our Design Associate will help you review the best carpet options for your desired style and budget. Here are some factors to consider when thinking about carpet.

Lifestyle Choice

  • Carpet is comfortable, soft, and warm underfoot
  • Sound absorbing fibers and proper padding mean quieter rooms, making carpet a popular choice for second-story hallways and bedrooms
  • Regular vacuuming and periodic shampooing greatly prolong the life of your carpet

Style Choice

  • Countless colors and textures allow carpet to fit into almost any décor
  • Dark, rich colors can draw a room in, creating a cozy feel
  • Lighter colored carpet opens up a room and can make it seem larger
  • There are many types of pile available that help to create the texture of the carpeting. Higher pile works best in the living room or the bedroom. Lower pile carpeting is great for staircases, hallways, and home offices.

Also consider that:

  • Carpet may be a challenge to keep clean if it is used in areas that are subject to stains and moisture, such as a laundry room
  • Carpet in strong, bold colors may limit your future options when repainting walls or changing furniturecarpet
  • You’ll want to look into the cleaning and care instructions for the carpeting you select so that you can have them deep cleaned at least once  year!
