4 Things To Consider When Getting New Carpet

Installing carpet throughout your home can be a great way to provide comfort, create a certain look, and have a design versatility that other types of flooring can’t provide.

Carpet can come in a variety of different colors, materials, and patterns to fit any style of home. Standard Paint & Flooring have a wide selection of quality carpet options available. With more than 300 styles to choose from top-quality brands, you’ll be able to find your perfect carpet in no time.

But before you pull the trigger on the first carpet you fall in love with, it’s good to take these factors into consideration:

1. Choosing The Right Style

There are several styles of carpet available like plush, frieze, and textured, each having their own unique look and feel. There are also a ton of colors and patterns available for your carpeting. Choosing which carpet will work the best for your home is the most intensive process as the wrong decision could be disastrous. That’s why it’s important to take your time deciding on the best carpet available.

2. Carpet Padding

Carpet padding is an often overlooked, but very important part of any wall-to-wall carpeting project. They both go hand-in-hand and while it’s generally unseen, it’s a vital part of your floors. Carpet padding is also called carpet underlay as it serves as the foundation where the carpets are installed.  The main purpose of carpet padding is to protect your carpeting. The pad keeps the underside of your carpet from wearing against the bare floor. It also helps the impact of heavy furniture and foot traffic. Carpet pad serves a variety of other helpful purposes.

3. Carpet Prices

Prices can vary depending on the different styles and materials. The quality can vary between carpets and carpet padding, which makes it possible to find a great quality carpet that can best suit your budget, as well as your home.

4. Carpet Care and Maintenance

In order for your carpet to stay in great condition, you need to provide it with good carpet care. You can easily maintain this flooring yourself. Maintenance instructions are often available, so make sure to check that out before you buy the carpet. This will prevent any stains from occurring in the future.
