Redecorating? Consider wall-to-wall carpet
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.
