Choosing The Right Carpet For Your Remodel
Starting a remodeling project can make a recently purchased home so much more your own. In choosing each element of your remodel, starting from the “ground up” is a great strategy to make sure your room or area reflects your chosen look for your home. At Carpet Bonanza, you can find every type of custom flooring in west Michigan to match the vision you have.
Here are some questions to ask while choosing what type of carpet you may want in your remodel:
How is the room going to be used?
In answering the question about how your room may determine if a carpeted space is even the right flooring option for this room. Carpet serves a noise deafening purpose in many homes for families who want to keep the sounds of the children’s toys to a reasonable level. If this room is going to be a play room or children’s room, consider a stain resistant type of carpet such as nylon.
Will the carpet receive direct sunlight?
In our recent article about five summer floor care tips, we mentioned that the Michigan summer sun can be a damaging agent for your brightly colored carpets or your hardwood floors. If your carpets will be in the sun and it cannot be avoided through managing your blinds or using an area rug, consider choosing a color that will not fade in the sun as much, such as a neutral gray or tan.
Will this room be the center of activity for family and entertaining?
Knowing that a room will be used heavily also helps in choosing a carpet that fits your needs. A nylon in a frieze twist is one of the most durable types of carpeting you can choose for your west Michigan remodel flooring project. You may also want to consider an area rug or luxury vinyl flooring from a local carpet flooring company as you work on your central hallways and family areas.
Will the carpet be away from entrances or is there direct access from outside?
If you are remodeling a part of your home that is away from entrances, this is your opportunity to create a space with soft and warm carpeting that invites those who step into the room to happily rub their feet on the floor. In addition, there is a bit of added insulation with deep carpeting in low traffic areas that can help keep you warm in the long Michigan winters. On the other hand, direct access from the outside means you’ll need to stay vigilant for pollutants that could stain your carpet and place a rug or a laminated entryway at your entrance.
