5 Things to Consider Choosing Living Room Carpet

by Carpet Right SEO

Your living room is often the place where your family gathers to relax, talk or play and so it makes sense to choose flooring that can stand up to the rigours of family life, but which also offers a higher level of comfort than kitchen or hallway floors.

That’s why carpet has always been a popular choice for homeowners due to its softness, ease of cleaning and the cosy feeling it gives to a room.

However, there are some things to take into consideration when choosing carpeting for your living room that may prove useful for buyers on carpet in Cremorne.

1.       Durability

The living room is classed as a high-traffic area so you should always choose a carpet that’s durable enough to stand up to the wear and tear of everyday family life.

If you’re shopping for a new carpet in Neutral Bay, test the quality of different options by bending a sample backwards. If you can see the backing, the carpet is likely to be of lower quality.

2.       Type of Fibre

The fibres used to make the carpet will affect both the durability and the appearance. Some of the best options for living room carpets include:

·         Nylon – the most resilient fibre

·         Polyester – sometimes listed as PET, it’s stain resistant and soft under the feet. However, it’s not as durable as nylon

·         Olefin – this is a cost-effective option that resists staining and fading although it’s not as durable as nylon.

3.       Ease of Cleaning

The living room tends to be one of the most-used rooms in the home, and so spills and accidents are likely to happen in here. Therefore, it makes sense to choose flooring that’s stain resistant, and that’s easy to clean.

Some carpets come with lifetime stain warranties but check the small print carefully to see if certain stains are excluded.

4.       Carpet Construction

The construction of your new carpet, e.g. pile and style, will affect the finished look of your flooring.

There are several different kinds of pile including:

·         Cut piles or plush

·         Uncut piles or looped carpets

·         Patterned loops – loops of multiple heights

·         Cut and Loop – which create patterns in the carpet

·         Level loop – Berber carpet which is the perfect option for high-traffic areas due to its density and patterned loop

Different styles of carpet are also available and include:

·         Smooth – the most formal look

·         Textured

·         Twist - casual

·         Shag – casual

5.       Fibre Softness

If you have young children, teenagers or you simply like lounging around on the floor, you’ll want a carpet that feels soft to the touch.

Soft carpets are often constructed with finer fibres than those traditionally used. You can also improve the cushioned feeling of your flooring by using a ‘soft’ or memory foam underlay.

Choose Wisely

Purchasing a new carpet can be an exciting time, but it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the multitude of options available. So take some time to choose a carpet that looks good and will be durable and long lasting too to ensure that it serve you well for many years to come.
