Do You Need Carpet Or Rugs

Nov 28, 2007
As a homeowner, choosing what kinds of flooring you need to put down in your home is an important decision, since there are so many different rooms in your home with different needs and so many different flooring materials available to choose from.

It is important that you choose the correct flooring material for every room in your house to make sure that both you and the structure of your home can live with the choice you made.

When it comes to material that feels good under our feet, most of us prefer carpet or rugs, but when actually purchasing it for a room in our home, we may not be sure which we want or need.

Wall-to-wall carpet will tend to unite a space and make it feel more comfortable and can absorb a lot of the noise that comes from walking across the floor.

One of the things you need to think about when you purchase carpet is that it is a very personal decision. If you are planning to resell the house, you may not want to choose any carpet that is too "out there", so to speak.

Complicated Berber patterns or wild colors may turn off a potential buyer and you may have to replace the carpet to get the place sold quickly.

In some areas of your home, having rugs may be a bit more practical. Rooms that require hard surfaces for flooring will often need rugs to help break up the space and give a comfortable surface for bare feet to walk on.

These can be picked up and washed as necessary, making them easier to clean than carpet, which should never be placed in a kitchen, anyway. The kitchen and the bathroom are two of the only rooms in the house that really need rugs instead of carpet. Carpet will need to be replaced in these rooms often due to staining and moisture.

Something a bit more unique and more customizable than either carpet or rugs is carpet tile. You can choose a couple of different colors and make a pattern on the floor if you like and a dirty or damaged piece can be replaced or switched with another piece from a more inconspicuous area of the room.

This makes carpet tile pretty versatile and it can give a room a more modern and more customized feel than rugs or carpet. And be sure to get a professional to install it.
