Carpets for Families
Carpet flooring is a natural choice for families, and a smart one. Babies can play happily on the living room carpet, and toddlers can practice walking. On movie night, teens can sprawl comfortably on the floor. In fact, soft carpet is great for so many family memories: board games, video games, slumber parties, and special occasions.
Moms and dads also things about things such as spills and pets. That’s where our carpet installation experts come in. We can help you choose the right type of carpeting for maximum stain resistance, durability, ease of cleaning, comfort, and style.
2021 Carpet Trends
Like cars and clothing, carpet manufacturers are constantly creating (and copying) different styles and colors for the modern homeowner. Solid, neutral colors are always a safe choice when it comes to carpet, and they are still a much-desired option. People who favor neutrals are now choosing carpets with simpler designs like tailored patterns and ribbing. Earth tones like beige and brown still top the color list with shades of gray gaining popularity as the “new gray.” But today’s more adventurous carpet buyers are making bolder statements with their color selections. Bright oranges, greens, and reds, along with dark browns are the most popular choices. In addition to solid colors, many fashion-conscious consumers are also featuring contemporary patterns including pin dots, basket weaves, geometric shapes and linear designs, and even animal prints.
Choosing the Perfect Carpet
Every family not only has different tastes in their carpet colors, the family size, children’s ages and everyday activities will often dictate the perfect style for each area of the home.
Most carpet is made the same way:
- Extrude fiber is grouped together and twisted into yarn
- The yarn is heated to lock the carpet fibers into the shape
- Hundreds of needles on a machine sew the backing into place
- A second backing is attached for more stability and strength
A Wide Variety of Carpet Materials
Almost all of today’s carpet is made from synthetic fibers, including nylon, polyester, olefin/polypropylene and a few others. Carpet is also created from natural fibers like jute, sisal and wool.
Each carpet material has its advantages – as well as its own drawbacks. For instance, nylon carpets are highly durable and are reasonably stain resistant, making them the top choice for high traffic areas. Where moisture is an issue, however, olefin and polyester are better choices.
You may have grown up with plush carpeting (now called Saxony) wall-to-wall in every room of your home. Modern Saxony still looks and feels soft and thick, but it also shows vacuum lines and footprints and homeowners have come to realize that it is not the best carpet for areas with heavy foot traffic. Saxony is best for areas with light foot traffic, like bedrooms and foral living rooms.
If having your carpet look as plush as a golf green is not a requirement, maybe Textured Saxony is the choice for you. Textured Saxony is different from regular Saxony because it is twisted differently and then steamed to create a permanent curl to the fibers. That means Textured Saxony won’t show vacuum cleaner lines or footprints. Another benefit – textured carpet will resist showing the wear and tear of everyday use much more effectively than other carpet styles.
Frieze is a cut pile carpet that offers a unique look. With a tighter twist than Textured style carpeting, the yarn curls over, making for a very hardy, long-wearing floor covering that hides footprints and vacuum lines, making it ideal for high traffic areas in which you want a richer looking carpet.
Cable carpeting is made of thicker, longer yarn than cut pile carpet. It is luxurious, gorgeous and rich underfoot. It’s only drawback is tat is captures footprints and vacuum lines like Saxony. So, while it is not the best choice for high traffic areas, it is still perfect for spaces you consider your home’s showcase. Navigating the maze of today’s carpeting choices isn’t easy. In fact, it can be downright overwhelming. So, many homeowners choose to let Great American Flooring guide them through the carpeting selection process. Our extensive knowledge and experience with floor coverings can help narrow down the choices to those that fit your style and budget and keep you from making a wrong turn.
The Best Carpet Styles
Every family has different tastes in their carpet colors, family size, children’s ages, and everyday activities will often dictate the perfect style for each home area. Here are some professional recommendations to help choose carpeting that makes you happy for decades:
- Location: A living room is going to get more foot traffic than a bedroom. Basement carpeting needs to take moisture into account. Of course, if you prefer the same carpet throughout, that’s fine, too.
- Family size: The more kids you have (or pets), the more durable and stain-resistant you probably want your carpeting to be. The age of your kids matters, too. Toddlers are a little harder on carpets than teens are.
- Lifestyle: Is a cozy living room your favorite place? Or do you prefer formal entertaining and showing off bold decor?
- Ambiance: Each type of carpet has a distinctive “feel.” Some are perfect for country comfort, and others are more modern. We also have stylish carpeting for retro lovers and minimalist designers.
- Texture: If you’re the kind of person who loves walking barefoot around the house, then a soft texture is a big deal. Let’s face it — there’s something irresistible about the feel of soft carpet when you’re getting out of bed on winter mornings.
- Color: Neutral carpet colors make decorating easier because they match any furniture style and color. That said, you don’t have to play by any “rules.” Bright carpet colors can be fun and luxurious.
- Price: It’s OK to talk about your budget when planning a project. The best carpet is a smart investment, but it shouldn’t put stress on your finances. Our team can help you stick to your budget and get a carpet you love.
