Home & Garden



Selecting the best carpet can be so difficult, in fact most people do not have any idea of how to choose the best carpet that will suite them, they just walk into a store, take a look around and select a carpet that is the most attractive. The most attractive carpet in the store might not be the best for you. Before you select a carpet for your home, there are tips that you need to know and put to use and I am going to share them with you today.

Feel The Carpet- Do you Like the texture?

 This is the first thing that you need to do. You should carefully examine the texture of the carpet it will go a long way in giving you satisfaction. Make sure you like the texture before you buy it. You need to consider the pile dimensions, the higher the pile, the more opulent it must feel, in spite of all that, you must consider the fact that carpets needs to be maintained and cared for.  Of all the piles, short piles are much easier to maintain and you might want to consider getting one if you have kids or animals in your house.

Determine the type you need

You must decide if you want a wall to wall type of carpet or an area type. People tend to choose wall to wall more than the other type because of its neatness and coziness. Area rugs however will save you much trouble when it comes to measurement and installation. You can comfortably change its location or take it with you wherever you are going. It’s also the best to go for if you need a carpet that can fit your room entirely and you will like to use it for a long time.

If you like oriental or antiques, then you might want to go for area rugs. They can be found at auctions or specialty stores around the country.  On the other hand, if you simply want a carpet that will fill the entire room and you know you want to use it for a long time, then wall to wall is probably more convenient.

Limited Budget?

If you are on a low budget, then you might want to go for synthetic materials because they are inexpensive and popular as well. When it comes to stains, synthetic carpets are much more resistant that natural ones made of wool. However, you should consider drawbacks as well. There are environmental and allergy concerns, if you share both of these concerns, then synthetic materials are not for you. Apart from all that, synthetic carpets will never have the same look or texture when you compare it with natural rugs.

Don’t Be deceived By Its Appearance

Lastly, do not let the look of a carpet deceive you, go ahead and feel it. Also check the internet and see what is available. Consider the price as well and make sure that it includes delivery and installation.
