Re­dec­o­rat­ing? Con­sider wall-to-wall car­pet

The Telegram (St. John’s) - Home Buyers' Guide - - METRO REGION -

Like most home­own­ers, you prob­a­bly only get to re­dec­o­rate once or twice in your homeʼs life­time and then only one or two rooms at a time. So, where do you be­gin? Think about the roomʼs pur­pose, your life­style, your tastes and start with the floor de­ci­sion.

Wall-to-wall car­pet still rep­re­sents good value for your dec­o­rat­ing dol­lar com­pared to other floor cov­er­ing op­tions. Not only is it less ex­pen­sive per square foot, and of­fers in­com­pa­ra­ble ben­e­fits of warmth, com­fort, safety, and sound in­su­la­tion, car­pet is avail­able in the widest range of the lat­est de­signer col­ors, fab­u­lous new tex­tures and so­phis­ti­cated pat- terns. Choose the style of car­pet that is best for you.

Clas­sic, tra­di­tional cut pile car­pet is avail­able in a plush Sax­ony, with a smooth, vel­vety sur­face, best used in more for­mal rooms of the home or in a tex­tured Sax­ony, where the curled, twisted tufts give the pile a more in­for­mal, ca­sual look that hides foot­prints and vac­uum marks and is suit­able for all ar­eas.

In­no­va­tive cut and loop pile car­pet adds a con­tem­po­rary di­men­sion of tex­ture to the floor. “Man­u­fac­tured us­ing some of the lat­est tech­nol­ogy and ad­vanced fiber sys­tems, the com­bi­na­tion of multi-level un­cut loops mixed with cut pile creates a sculpted pat­tern ef­fect and re­sults in a car­pet that is tough and durable and cam­ou­flages traf­fic pat­terns”, ex­plains Les­lie Beau­mont, Di­rec­tor of Mar­ket­ing for a large car­pet man­u­fac­turer. Look for a range of new soft flo­ral and vine pat­terns and fab­u­lous sub­tle geo­met­rics, per­fect for any room in the home.

Form­ing the largest un­in­ter­rupted block of color and de­sign, the floor sets the tone for the en­tire room. Your choice of car­pet rep­re­sents an im­por­tant in­vest­ment de­ci­sion that will prob­a­bly out­last the wall paint and fur­nish­ings over the years.
