08 May Parkland Custom Carpet: A Flooring to Meet Your Needs
Having custom carpet installed in your home can cost a little more money than a standard rug; however, I have never felt as at home as I did after I put in my new carpeting. Maybe it was the feeling of changing it to be how I designed it that I liked most, or maybe all the new colors just really were that welcoming. In the end, it really doesn’t matter which reason triggered those feeling; the important part is that I am enjoying my home more now than I ever have before because it truly feels like mine.
Why I Chose Carpet for My House
I did some research into carpeting before I selected the flooring I wanted. I knew that this soft flooring would bring with it added comforts, but what I didn’t know was that carpet significantly reduces noise pollution, which helps my home be more soothing and relaxing. With limitless carpet textures, colors, and patterns to pick from, I knew I would be able to create an environment that was not only beautiful and comfortable, but that actually welcomed visitors into my space.
Sometimes when I think about , I think of the plastic scratchy beige floor that was in my first college apartment. However, that old, outdated carpet is such a stark contrast to all the soft stain-resistant carpets that I browsed through when I was getting ideas for what I wanted my home to be like now.
Beyond the Comfort
I could probably go on and on for pages about how adding carpet to my house added a level of comfort that I can’t accurately describe, but there were other reasons that we decided that it was the best option for our home as well. Here are a few of those reasons:
- Cost: Despite how badly our flooring needed replacing, we were not in a financial situation where we could spend a lot of money on a considerable flooring project. When I was looking at flooring types, we considered hardwood, but realistically, I wasn’t okay with just hardwood and no rugs to add softness. In the end, I decided to put carpet in those rooms because the cost of installing carpeting was cheaper now and also cost less as far as maintenance in the future.
- Safety and noise reduction: Due to the added padding under the carpet, I find that our home is quieter, but I also find that if I fall or trip, I am less likely to get hurt. This may seem like a silly reason to list, but this was one of my deciding factors when choosing between carpet and hardwood.
- In my last home, we had laminate flooring in almost every room. I remember having to dust mop those floors a couple of times a day due to dust and pet hair accumulation. I read an article that discussed carpet as a source of air purification. The article stated that carpet works to help keep the air cleaner by preventing dust and pet hair from flying around in a home. While I still vacuum frequently; it is nothing compared to dust moping our other floors.
- Energy efficiency: Like many other Americans right now, I am trying to reduce our carbon footprint. We added recycling to our routine as well as some reusable drinking bottles, but one of the significant things I did was add carpeting to the majority of my floors. This helps with both our heating and cooling bills by hindering heat transference. Ultimately it makes my home more energy efficient.
Choosing Carpet for My South Florida Home
I know that there may be less Florida compared to the northern states, but as someone who has a home in both places, it was very important to me to have some of the comforts of the north with me here in the south. Some rooms I choose different flooring for, like my entryways, kitchen, utility room, and bathrooms. I selected the places I wanted carpet in by evaluating the purpose of each space. If I expected water or heavy traffic in an area, I opted for flooring that could take that kind of abuse, but for those spaces where I wanted to invite people to spend time and feel comfortable, I choose to add carpet.
