  • Consider Your Home’s Foot Traffic. When choosing any flooring material, you’ll want to think about the amount of foot traffic it will be exposed to. For example, if you live alone and don’t entertain often, you can probably get away with a more delicate carpet than a family with five children who regularly host their many friends can. Our team here at Wright’s Carpet and Flooring is here to discuss your needs and help you find an option with the right level of durability for your particular circumstances.
  • Choose a Style that Works for You. One of the main things you’ll need to decide on when buying carpet is what style you want. Carpet comes in a number of different styles, and each one has its own strengths and weaknesses. For example, Saxony carpet features cut pile of a medium length, giving it a nice plush feeling but also tending to show footprints and other signs of traffic in the fibers. Another popular choice is Berber carpets, which feature looped fibers that are popular for home offices, because they’re less likely to tangle in the wheels of a desk chair.
  • Have Fun with Color. Of course, the thing that most people think of first when selecting carpet is color. The floor is by definition one of the biggest parts of any room, so the carpet you choose will have a big impact on the space’s overall look. While you probably want the biggest visual impact in the room to be something else, that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with the color of your carpet. Our team at Wright’s Carpet and Flooring can help you pick out an option that will give your space a touch of playfulness without throwing off the rest of your design.
