3 Factors to Consider When Choosing Carpet for Your Home

In today’s modern world, there are a great variety of carpet options.  When selecting the right carpet for your home, you should take into consideration aesthetics as well as practical aspects. Here are a few factors to consider when choosing the right carpet for your home:


Make sure to choose carpet that matches your home’s needs and your aesthetic desires. For example, a loop pile made of polyester is suitable for a low-traffic area that is not too formal, like a bedroom. Additionally, carpet comes in almost every color, and since it takes up so much space, carpet color can dictate the mood of a room. Warm colors can create a cozy effect, while cool colors can induce calming sensations.


While a thick carpet may feel luxurious, pile height does not necessarily denote quality. Ask your carpet store representative for quality carpet recommendations. Additionally, you can consider adding a high-quality carpet cushion, which will provide warmth, softness, and a buffer for noise. Always check the carpet manufacturer’s recommendations for cushions to avoid wrinkling, buckling, and separation.


Just like a coat keeps you warm from the elements, carpet protects your room from cold air and wind. Unlike other flooring options, carpet is warm and comfortable and requires no additional heating. Contrary to popular belief, not all carpets contribute to asthma and allergies. In fact, the right carpet can actually trap allergens, preventing them from circulating in the air and keeping your family protected.


It’s important to take special circumstances into consideration when choosing carpet. If you have a high-traffic household or a household with seniors or pets, speak with your local carpet store representative about the best options for your home. For an unbeatable carpet selection, come to Bay Carpet. Our carpet store is sure to have the carpet you want at a price you can afford. Call us at (718) 366-5001 for more information.
