BACK TO SCHOOL: THE PERFECT TIME TO UPDATE YOUR CARPET

Without the Kids Underfoot, You Can Update What’s Under Your Feet

As the summer break comes to an end and the kids head back to school, it’s time to get to those home improvement projects that you’ve been putting off. If your flooring is dingy or outdated, take this opportunity to give your Chico, California home a fresh new look with a carpet flooring installation. The kids will be out of the way, leaving you to get that unwanted flooring out of the house and some fresh new carpet in its place.

While we’re big fans of flooring options like hardwood and tile, there’s still a lot to love about carpet! Here are a few of the top benefits:

1. COMFORT

As you step out of bed in the morning, do you want your feet to hit a cold, hard surface? A cushioned, soft material like carpet is far more comfortable to walk on. Beyond the soft texture of the carpet, you can also choose from a variety of cushion underpads to find the material that gives just the right amount of thickness and density for your comfort.

2. NOISE REDUCTION

Generally, tile and hardwood floors are loud. When you walk across the room, it’s hard to do so quietly. But you don’t have to worry about echoes, thuds, and general noise with carpet. It’s an insulating material, so it actually helps reduce noise throughout your home. The result is a quiet, cozy feel.

3. COST

A carpet flooring installation is an incredibly cost-effective way to transform a room. You can get the best quality carpet for far less than cheap, unreliable hardwood or other hard surface alternatives. Without the prohibitive cost of hardwood, you have the freedom to upgrade the flooring throughout your home with top-of-the-line carpet.

WHY SHOULD I BUY NYLON CARPET VS. ALTERNATIVE FIBERS?

Find the Carpet Solution that’s Right for Your California Home

Let’s talk carpet fibers. It’s not usually something you would even think to think about, but if you’re considering a carpet flooring installation in your Roseville area home, it’s a smart idea to know about the different options.

The most popular carpet fiber in the U.S. is nylon, a man-made material that was originally designed as a substitute for silk. The fiber didn’t quite catch on as an alternative for silk dresses, but it did stand out as a great option for carpet and rugs.

So is nylon the no-brainer choice for your next carpet purchase? Perhaps, but there are definitely benefits to both nylon and alternative fibers. So let’s dig deeper into what those benefits are…

Reasons to Love Nylon

Durability

The reason nylon never took off as a silk substitute is that it’s hard. The stiff material is inherently resistant to damage, so everyday wear and tear won’t have as much of an effect as it would on alternative fibers.

Soil Resistance

Dirt is every carpet’s enemy, but nylon has a better defense against it than most carpet fibers. Everyday soiling is less likely to penetrate the fibers and cause permanent stains. It’s not completely soil-proof like laminate or luxury vinyl planks would be, but it’s still a good choice.

Earth-friendly Colors

It’s important to choose carpet that complements the look and feel of your home. So if your interior design palette has a lot of natural tones and textures, you’re far better off with nylon than with a carpet fiber like polyester. That’s because polyesters typically have a shiny, artificial look and feel.

Reasons to Choose Alternative Fibers

Stain Resistance

The durable material of nylon keeps dirt from damaging the fiber, but it can still absorb liquids. So for areas where liquid spills might be a concern, you’ll find greater stain resistance in a material like polyester.

Eco-friendliness

If you want to avoid a man-made, petroleum-based carpet, then a natural material such as wool or sisal might make sense for your home. Another solid choice is to go for carpet made of recycled materials. These carpeting options are typically pricier and may require more ongoing care, but they have a much lower carbon footprint.

Frequent Changes

Nylon will last for years and years to come, which is great if you’re looking for a long-term carpet flooring installation. But if you like to switch it up with your home décor every few years, it may make sense to choose a cheaper material that isn’t designed to stay looking great for a decade.

Of course, there’s no denying that one of the biggest factors when choosing carpet fiber is the feel of it. The best way to find a carpet flooring option that’s right for your home is to feel the different textures for yourself!
