When you want to create a cozy and inviting atmosphere in your home, selecting the right carpet is essential. If you have children who frequently play or sit on the floor, it’s also important to look for carpets that look great while being soft and easy to maintain.
Our team at Design Flooring, LLC has a lot of experience helping families and parents choose kid-friendly carpets for their homes. Here are some of our top tips for selecting carpets that you and your children are sure to love:
- Pile Height: The pile height refers to the length of the loops attached to the carpet. Low-pile carpets are shorter and denser, making them easier to clean and maintain over time.
- Color and Pattern: If you have children, you should probably stay away from white or off-white colors. Carpets with speckles or patterns can help mask any stains that might occur from accidental spills.
- Fiber Materials: If you or someone in your family suffers from allergies or other respiratory issues, look for carpets labeled as hypoallergenic. These carpets won’t shed fibers and will prevent any allergens or dust from getting trapped, creating better indoor air quality. Furthermore, make sure to select carpets made from more durable and stain-resistant materials for even greater peace of mind.
- Carpet Padding: Also known as carpet underlay, carpet padding can create extra cushioning for areas like living rooms and bedrooms. Additionally, carpet padding can help extend the lifespan of your new carpets.
Getting your carpets professionally installed can help you and your family avoid tripping hazards, such as uneven spots or other issues caused by improper installation.
