Textured Plush, Saxony and Berber carpets are just a few choices that you have to choose from when selecting carpet for your new home in Pittsburgh. There are carpets that can be installed wall-to-wall, carpet that can be cut to size with bound edges and carpet squares. So how do you choose a good carpet for your new Parry home? Let’s look at some tips about selecting the right carpeting for your new home.
How much traffic will you have on the carpet? If you plan to put a carpet in the bedroom, then it won’t have as much traffic as a carpet in the living room.
Stain resistance. This is something to think about with any carpet, especially carpets that are going to be used in a dining room or play room where there will be a steady stream of food or possibilities for spills.
Carpet Rating. Indoor carpeting is normally rated on a scale of one to five, with five being the highest rating. Carpets with a four and five rating are considered the best for heavy traffic areas.
Consider wool carpet. Wool is the highest quality of carpet you can buy for your Parry home. Wool carpets are very expensive, but greatly out perform any other man made carpet and is naturally flame resistant.
Man made carpets would be the best choice for heavy traffic. If you will have a high traffic area in your Parry home, then nylon would be an ideal choice due to its durability. Nylon is stain resistant as well and repels mildew. Polyester is another good carpet as it is easy to clean and repels water based stains. Polyester is known for the look and feel of wool, although it is much less expensive than wool.
Color consideration. Light colored carpets create an effect of a larger space, although they do tend to show stains more easily. Dark carpets on the other hand tend to absorb light, giving your Parry room a cozy feeling. Neutral colors are always a safer choice for the carpet color in your Parry home.
The carpeting you choose for your Parry home is an investment. Purchase the highest grade that your budget will allow.
