Breathe New Life Into a Room With a Carpet Upgrade
Carpet has been around long before the ’50s. During ancient times, some cultures passed down hand-tying and knotting skills to other generations. Many explorers and merchant adventurers came home to Europe in the 16th century with a new appreciation for rich textiles and rugs from the East. William Sprague opened the first woven carpet mill in Philadelphia in 1791. This appreciation of textile floor coverings became trendy and became an essential part of the interior of a modern home.

What’s Going On in Your Household?
When buying a new carpet, you must consider your lifestyle. A single person’s needs are different from someone with a family and pets. If your children enjoy making videos in the living room, then this area gets a lot of traffic. A busy household can benefit from carpet that can withstand higher traffic and has increased stain resistance.
Here is a hack for pet lovers. You should choose a carpet that is close in color to your pet. A similar color shows up less pet hair and hides dirt. If your carpet is in a room with a lot of sunlight, then you should consider a fade-resistant carpet. On the other hand, homeowners who live in damp climates should choose a synthetic carpet less prone to mildew and mold.
It is easy to get caught up in buying the latest carpet color you saw on a friend’s social media page. You should wait before running out to buy white carpet. It helps to consider if the carpet will work in your household.
Choose Your Carpet Style
It is important to choose a carpet style with the right amount of aesthetics, a high-performance rating and fits your budget. Here are the six basic styles of carpet:
- Cut & Loop
- Saxony or plush
The textured carpet is a common style and an affordable option. It is a cut pile carpet and gives a more luxurious look. The textured style also hides vacuum marks and footprints. It is a good choice for an active household with children and pets.
