Calculating a Budget
Not all carpet is created equal! Before you begin shopping, calculate the size of each bedroom. Knowing the square footage of the space will help you easily compare prices. Set a strict budget for yourself. There are a wide range of options available, so you will be able to quickly find something that suits your needs, looks great, and is mindful of your budget.
Choosing a Carpet Pile
Pile height can make a huge difference on how the carpet feels on your feet. The pile refers to the length of the carpet fibers, excluding the backing. Generally, low pile carpet is easier to clean and is best for high-traffic rooms or if you have pets. If you want something a bit fluffier to add a touch of comfort to the room, you will want a high pile carpet. High pile carpet can also absorb noise, making them a great choice.
Selecting the Right Material
Carpets are made from a wide range of synthetic and natural materials. Most bedroom carpets are made of synthetic materials to help resist stains, avoid fading, and maintain durability.
Here are the most common material choices for bedrooms:
- Polyester – Typically used for vibrant colors, choose this material if you want something resistant to fading and stains.
- Nylon – Choose this cost-effective material to resist stains, crushing, and mildew growth.
- Wool – Comfy and soft, wool is a durable material that looks great when maintained properly.
Don’t forget to add carpet padding! Carpet padding adds an additional layer that can add insulation, softness, and extends the life of your carpet.
Choosing the right carpet for your bedroom will always come down to personal choice. When making your final decision, consider how often you’ll be in the room and how often your able to clean. If you need assistance selecting the perfect carpet, please contact us at any time.
