A Couple of Decisions to Make When Enlisting Wall to Wall Carpet Installation

Marian Moreno

Perhaps you are in the throes of furniture shopping for your newly constructed custom home or are thinking of revamping your interiors. Wall-to-wall carpet laying is a great way of adding comfort while enhancing visual appeal.  Unlike a majority of traditional solutions, such as Persian and Oriental rugs, new-age carpets do not only require minimal upkeep but they are quite easy to match to your pre-existing décor since they are available in a vast array of colours, patterns, piles and more. Nonetheless, since wall to wall carpeting takes up a considerable amount of square footage in your home, it is essential to get your choice right the first time or you will suffer from serious bouts of buyer's remorse.

Before you go out and choose a carpet based exclusively on your budget, here are a couple of the top decisions you need to make before enlisting wall to wall carpet installation.

1. Which material will be the most ideal for your needs?

A couple of factors will dictate your choice of carpet materials. The first is the aesthetic choices that you have made in the rooms that the carpeting will be installed. The second is the degree of functionality that you expect from the carpeting supplies. If you were keen on longevity, fibres such as nylon and wool would be an ideal investment. Nylon is especially durable since it is resistant to a majority of elements ranging from UV exposure to high foot traffic. However, when it comes to texture, wool is a much better alternative, as it does not feel a synthetic as its nylon counterpart.

Homeowners that have dedicated time and money into a sustainable home build may want to deliberate on green carpeting materials such as coir, sisal and even seagrass. Not only are these supplies one of the most eco-conscious solutions but they are also undeniably hard-wearing, making them a worthwhile long-term investment.

2. Which style of carpet will look great in your home?

The style of wall-to-wall carpeting you choose will directly affect how the carpet will feel underfoot. Therefore, some consideration needs to go into your preferred choice so that you are not unsatisfied with the feel of the carpet down the road. A cut pile is one of the most common styles available. It is easily identifiable by its upright fibres, which are achieved by cutting the carpet yard at the point that it loops. The cut pile style of carpet comes in a few different sub-styles such as frieze, plush and a plie twist. The second style that you can consider is a loop pile, which is distinguishable by its smooth surface. Loop pile carpeting works well in households that experience heavy foot traffic daily.

The Benefits of Different Types of Flooring

Hello, my name is John and this is my new flooring blog. Last month, my wife and I finally got around to replacing the flooring in the downstairs rooms of our home. We had been meaning to do this since the day we moved in but one thing or another always got in the way. I contacted a flooring company who talked me through the various types of flooring I could have, explaining the drawbacks and the benefits of each type. In the end, we decided to have hardwood timber floors in our home as we wanted a traditional look. I hope you like my blog.
