When thinking about flooring options for your room, do cast a special look over the option of wall to wall carpeting, for the warmth that it can bring to your interiors is incomparable with any other type of flooring. Keeping the warmth factor at the top, visual appeal and lower cost are the other factors which make the deal even more alluring.
Till a few years back natural fiber, such as silk and wool, based carpets were more popular, and although the synthetic fiber made carpets have taken the lead, the natural ones are still a class apart. Keeping all that aside, let’s have a look at some of the major factors that need to be considered when you want to get wall to wall carpeting done.
The most important aspect to be considered is the kind of wear and tear you anticipate for the flooring of any particular area of your house. For instance the floor of your living area has to sustain a lot of traffic and so you need a carpet which can withstand heavy attrition and is in a dark color so as to smokescreen whatever patching may take place you to the beating it takes.
The next important aspect is to get your numbers right in terms of the area to be covered under the carpet. You need to measure the room size along with any niches or corners which may require extra carpeting. It is always better to add an extra ten percent to the calculated area, so as to accommodate any irregularities. If you’re hiring some agency to do the carpeting, then please ask a person from the agency to come over to your place and take the final measurements.
The most important part, of getting your wall to wall carpeting done, is deciding on the budget. You need to be clear about how much we’re willing to spend, and your cost estimates must include transportation and labor charges as well. Also it is important mull over the usability aspect of the carpet, since you cannot replace the entire carpeting every one of two years. Essentially, what we’re trying to say is, that look at the durability aspect, while of course not ignoring your personal budget.
And lastly, do give cleaning and maintenance aspects also some thought. While on a daily basis vacuum cleaning or brushing may be sufficient, on any yearly basis you will need to get the carpets shampooed and that needs both money and effort.
