In interior design there are few improvements that make as much of an impact as flooring. What we step on every day plays an integral role in setting the mood, and turning any drab space in to something fantastic. If you’re looking to increase the comfort, appeal, and even the value of your home, there’s no better way to do it than with quality carpets.
Hardwood flooring, laminates, and even ceramic tiles all have their places in the home. They’re perfect for kitchen and dining areas because these materials are almost impossible to stain and are a breeze to clean. However, think about you when you want to sit back and relax, how you want your bedroom to feel, and where you want to entertain guests or have your children play. In all of these situations carpet makes the most inviting spaces, and because carpets can be dyed, cut, and threaded in hundreds of different ways they’re a great way to express yourself through interior design.
Deciding which carpets you need for each room will depend on the purpose and the mood you want to create. Taking a little extra time to pick the right carpet will make the difference between a home that’s comfortable and functional, to a home that is both of these, but also stunningly beautiful.
There are plenty of options when it comes to choosing your carpets. Carpets come in different pile heights, which makes a difference as to how much actual fabric you have under your feet. A carpet with a heavy pile will provide more cushioning, but it can also mean more maintenance, and that it has more affinity for trapping dirt and debris. However, if you’re carpeting a living or comfort room then long pile carpet might be the best option.
For other spaces like offices and children’s play areas, low pile carpet is preferable. Plush carpet that is cut has a velvety texture that still feels luxurious underfoot while still being easily maintained through regular vacuuming and the occasional professional cleaning.
When you’re looking to make a statement in a special room like a games room, or a media room, designer carpets are the best choice. Carpets with multi-colored sections can work great in a space like this. If you go with something darker such as a deep maroon, or navy blue colored carpet it will look stunning with leather sofas in your entertainment suite. Carpets come in so many colors and designs that you can get as creative as you want, just be sure to settle on a look that you love.
Specialty carpets like sculpted cut carpets are perfect for bedrooms. These carpets have both cut, and regular pile height in one carpet to form embossed patterns. Imagine your master bedroom with a carpet that creates the sense that you’re in a boutique hotel. You’re only ever going to be able to achieve that look with carpet!
There are so many fabric choices, designs, colors, and textures available from carpets that they’re easily the most versatile and important home improvement you could choose. Carpets are the perfect investment that can last for a lifetime, Best of all they let you express yourself with standout interior spaces that you’ll love to live in.
