Three Ways to Get the Most from Your Carpet

Posted on

Carpet can make quite a statement. The right carpet can define a room and bring all the components in the room together. The wrong carpet can make your whole home look dingy or uninviting. Thus, when you choose carpet for your house, you need to take the time to choose carpet that will improve the look of your home for years to come. 

Neutral Background

One approach to choosing carpet is to use a neutral color that you can use throughout your house. If you want to make one room stand out from the rest, you can use a space rug to provide a pop of color. The same rug can also define the space in a room. For example, if you have a great room, your sitting area, entertainment area, and dining area can all run together. A bright carpet or one with a bold pattern could overwhelm the space. A neutral carpet with a rug or rugs to help define each space can help you to define separate spaces in the same large room. 


No matter which material you buy, you should be able to get whichever pattern or color you want. That does not mean, however, that one carpet material is just as good as another. Two popular choices are wool and nylon. Both have many advisable qualities. Nylon, however, holds up to cleaners better than wool because wool is a natural material that can break down when exposed to harsh solvents. Also, nylon will hold up better to abrasion than wool. 

Natural Carpets

If you are trying to build a green home, then using a synthetic material like nylon or polypropylene may not jibe with the home you are trying to make for yourself. You also have a lot of great choices in natural fibers that you can use in your home. Sisal, jute, and seagrass are all great choices to use as accents in your home. Jute, for example, may not be the most durable carpet in the world, but it is great for low-traffic areas and as an accent. 

Installing carpet in your home is expensive and thus a choice that you will have to live with for a long time. Make sure you make a choice that you will be able to enjoy for years to come. You could choose a bright color, pattern, or complicated texture, but sometimes the best choices are the simplest choices.
