Carpet is one of the most popular flooring options in the greater Cleveland areas due to its warmth, insulating properties, and different styles. Carpet is perfect for almost any room of the house, except those with high levels of moisture. Before you install carpet in your home, the experts at Floor Coverings International Cleveland East share 4 things to consider below!
1. Carpet Fiber
There are more things to consider with carpet than just the color. The fiber chosen will play a big role in how the carpet looks, feels, and stands up to wear and tear. Nylon and wool are the two most popular fibers, but you can also pick from other options as well. Wool is popular for its insulating qualities and eco-friendliness, while nylon is durable and affordable. Our design associate can talk you through your different options before you make a decision!
2. Carpet Style
Once you’ve selected the fiber, it’s time to decide on a style! Berber carpet is great for homes or businesses that receive high amounts of foot traffic because it is incredibly durable. Frieze is great for rooms going for a casual and comfortable look that will still hold up to wear and tear. Some other options include plush or Saxony.
3. Colors and Patterns
One of the great things about carpet is that it is available in a wide variety of looks. Carpets can be used as the focal point of a room with a bold design, or as a neutral backdrop. Some styles and fibers have less variety, so keep this in mind when selecting your new carpet.
4. Stain Resistance
We carry some carpet brands such as STAINMASTER® that come with stain resistance built in, but it can also be added after the fact. Stain resistance is good for busy families or those with pets.
We’ll go over all of this and more during your free in-home design consultation where we bring the carpet samples right to your door. At Floor Coverings International Cleveland East, we proudly serve the greater Cleveland areas and look forward to working with you!
