Plush carpet designs can add a stunning charm to your home and complement the luxurious furniture pieces. However, to select the perfect flooring, you need to consider patterns, colors, and the toughness of the material.

Unfortunately, most people are not well-versed with this process and don’t have an eye for detail to choose aesthetically pleasing carpets that can bring rooms to life. This can prove detrimental to the outcome. 

So, to point you in the right direction and give you some handy advice, Bert Vis Flooring Inc. has put together a beginner’s guide to picking the right carpet for your needs. Through this guide, you will feel convinced to move forward with your flooring installation.

Getting Started

Know your requirements: Consider if your space will be used for high or low traffic and if you intend to keep pets on the carpet area.

Determine your budget: Ascertain the average carpet cost per square yard. If you’re looking for something to tie you over before moving out, then you may want to lean towards entry-level quality underpad and carpet.

Consider the start and finish date: If you’re on a tight schedule, you may be hoping to walk in and out of a showroom the same day with a roll of carpet. In that case, it would be wise to call beforehand and ask if the store has a product in stock that is suitable for your project.

Next Steps

Conduct research: Visit showrooms, but try not to get overwhelmed by all the different styles, colors, and carpet textures. Also, ask questions like “What would you recommend for my space? or “Will this carpet stand up to high traffic?” 

Hire a professional: An experienced floor installer will have the knowledge to recommend appropriate styles. We encourage customers to take samples home as factors like lighting, paint colors, and décor make a huge difference. 

Advice From The Pros

Be flexible: Often, customers get fixated on a specific pattern without considering alternatives. We suggest that you explore your options and take tips from sales staff which will help you to tap into your adventurous side.

You pay for what you get: The biggest mistake to avoid is expecting quality from a carpet that is entry-level grade. If you’re looking for something short-term, then you should go for the cheapest option. However, if you’re hoping for years of durability, go with a superior carpet, ensuring you won’t run into problems in the next month or year.
