One great way to transform a space and give it a look it has never had before is to add carpeting. We, here at Richmond Decorating, are known for our high-quality carpet selection. You really won’t find a better place to purchase new carpet in Richmond, Virginia. However, when purchasing carpet, sometimes it can be hard to decide which rooms it is appropriate in. We are here to help you by providing a guide of which home rooms need wall to wall carpet and which don’t.
First off, are you looking to just update your space or are you covering something up? This is something to ask before deciding what to do. A lot of people choose to use wall-to-wall carpeting in rooms with a concrete floor to increase the insulation of the space. It is also used in rooms where there is a wrecked wood floor that you don’t want to replace.
It is important to think about what rooms should never have wall to wall carpeting. While a small rug may be appropriate, wall to wall carpeting should never be installed in any room that can or is likely to encounter any sort of moisture. This would include bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, utility rooms, entryways, and basements. If carpeting of this variety is exposed to moisture, it is likely you will have to rip it all up and replace it often. No one wants to deal with that.
Rooms that are great for carpet though, include bedrooms, living rooms, dens, and other living spaces. Of course, it is important to consider how dirty the space gets. If you have children, you may want to avoid full carpeting in spaces where they tend to spend lots of time. We all know how messy kids can be. However, if you do still want carpeting, since it can be helpful in preventing bumps and bruises when your kids are running around being kids, there are lots of options that don’t show dirt as easily or that are much easier to clean in general that would be great for nurseries or kids’ rooms.
If you still aren’t sure where wall to wall carpeting is appropriate, give us a call and we would be glad to offer our advice.
