Top 5 Tips For Choosing The Right Carpet

Top 5 Tips For Choosing The Right Carpet

Soft and luxurious is what comes to mind whenever you think of a floor carpet. It also comes with other benefits like overall warmth, safety for kids, sound absorption among many others.

But carpets are not all the same. They differ in material, design, size, shape, and manufacturers. As a first timer or an inexperienced homeowner, knowing which carpet is best for you can thus be challenging.

To help make your decision easier, we have compiled a list of 5 tips that you need to know before settling for a particular carpet.


  1. Choose the right padding

    Comfort and warmth is the number one purpose for any carpet, and padding is a major factor when comparing comfort. But the comfort needed varies with where the carpet is to be used.

    For instance, the living room or bedroom where you are likely to walk barefoot or just with socks, you should consider a heavily padded carpet. On the other hand, places like study rooms and offices do not need heavily padded carpets since most of the time you will be in shoes.

  2. Choose the right carpet colors and patterns

    The color of your carpet tells a lot about you and it sets the mood in your home or work place. So if you need an unconventional and contemporary mood then you will go with white or something next to that. For a warm and traditional feel you will have to go with brown or any warm color you prefer.
  3. Pick the right material for the right place

    This is also another important factor to consider. The material used for your carpeting determines its durability, comfort levels and even the aesthetics. Take for example nylon carpets, they are strong and resistant to elements like mold. This makes them suitable for high-traffic areas.
  4. Carpet resistance to elements

    Carpets are usually put on the ground where anything can pour on them, from just water to harmful chemicals. While some carpets can get damaged from such liquids, some can resist them. To save yourself from extra expense, it is important to choose one that is highly resistant. But, in case you choose one that isn’t then you should consider buying treatments for the maintenance.
These are just a few of the factors that need consideration when it comes to carpets. But you do not have to master all of them, simply contact your local contractor and they will advise you appropriately.
