Here at Floor Coverings International North Jersey, we know that different lifestyles call for different types of flooring. A busy family with kids and pets is probably looking for something durable, while empty nesters might be interested in exploring their home’s interior design potential.
Carpet is versatile enough to meet both of these needs and more, but knowing how to choose the right carpet for each circumstance can be difficult. Below, our experts have provided the best carpets for various homeowner needs to help you choose the perfect carpet for your Paramus home.
Practical Carpeting for Families
Many homeowners are looking for a carpet that can balance comfort and durability. However, families with messy kids or pets could benefit from having a carpet that is stain resistant and easy to clean as well. Synthetic fiber types will be best for accident-prone households. Natural fibers like wool or sisal are more prone to water damage and staining.
When it comes to comfort, nylon and polyester are wonderful, soft choices. Go for a low, cut-pile carpet like plush or Saxony style for an especially cushiony carpet. Nylon fibers are more resilient than polyester and will be best suited for areas with heavy foot traffic. All synthetic fibers can be treated for stain resistance. For a carpet that is super easy to clean, go for a looped style of carpet like berber. This style of carpet won’t trap dirt or grime as readily as cut-pile carpets.
Luxurious, Comfortable Carpets
Carpet is a popular choice in bedrooms because it provides a soft, cozy feel that is unmatched by any other type of floor. Bedrooms tend to be low traffic areas that aren’t prone to messes, so this is a good area to indulge in soft, luxurious carpeting that you may otherwise avoid in high traffic or mess-prone areas.
Wool is renowned as a luxuriously comfortable carpet material because it is incredibly soft and it retains heat well. Go for cut-pile carpets for maximum cushion and comfort. Plush and Saxony styles of carpet will provide a cushiony feel while higher piles like frieze or shag will provide the optimal softness.
Carpets for Interior Design
If you’re looking to get creative with your carpet, consider using carpet tiles. Modern interior designers are using carpet tiles to create unique visuals such as chevron or herringbone patterns. Carpet tiles are easy to install, and with the right inspiration, any design is possible.
Choose mismatched colors and create a plaid floor, or go geometric by cutting square tiles into other shapes. Our design associate can help you create a unique carpet tile design or can help you pick out a beautiful area rug to complement your home’s aesthetic.
