Rooms that Beg for Carpeting

There are some rooms that need specific types of flooring. Ceramic tiles are a great option for the bathroom or the kitchen, due to the way the material handles water and moisture. Hardwood flooring is ideal for high-traffic homes since it can handle the effects of a lot of back and forth, what kids and pets drag in from outside, and more. But there are some rooms that absolutely beg for the plush, welcoming warmth of carpeting.

What Rooms Need Carpets?

The Bedroom

If there’s one room in most homes that needs carpeting, it’s the bedroom. The bedroom should be the most comfortable room in your home. It’s where you go to rest, to rejuvenate yourself for the new day that’s about to come. The best option for your bedroom is to look into specific types of residential carpeting. When stepping out of bed in the morning, the carpet greets you with warmth and support to start your day. Another reason residential carpeting is a great idea for the bedroom is the way that the flooring material dampens sounds. Combine this with an acoustic ceiling tile, and you are guaranteed to have a peaceful night’s sleep, free from distractions. Maintenance is easy with a simple weekly vacuum and yearly shampoo. If you have pets, certain carpets are ideal and can make cleaning a breeze as well as masking pet hair in the interim. 

The Living Room

The living room is the most obvious place to find carpeting, since the room’s main purpose is to provide a space for relaxation and entertainment. Most living rooms tend to have a lot of space and open floors. Oftentimes homes offer a great room from kitchen, dining, and living spaces. Having residential carpeting installed in your living room helps keep the seamless flow of the space while differentiating between each individual room.  Though hardwood floors, or other hard types of flooring can be as stunning as carpeting, we tend to cover those flooring types with rugs when they’re in the living room. Nothing says comfort like carpeting. This would be a great opportunity to invest in something high-end and durable, like a luxury plush-top carpet, because there’s a good chance you’re going to spend some time on it and you’ll want it to last years. 

Residential Carpeting in the Basement: A Great Idea

Although they aren’t very common in Nashville, basements are another space that makes for a great place to install residential carpeting. Basements tend to be thought of as dark, dank and damp; somewhere for creepy crawlies to live and hide in fear of the light, but not really a place for many people to spend a lot of time. If you have a temperature controlled, finished basement, you can change that by installing carpet, because it can completely change the vibe of the room. Once carpet is in a room, it changes how it’s perceived. It will look like a truly finished basement and the perfect living or entertaining space for your family and guests. 

The bottom line is that carpeting goes well in just about every room in your home or office, but there are some that seem uniquely-suited for carpering, such as the bedroom, the living room, and the basement. But just as there are many rooms in which carpeting would look great, there are a number of types of carpeting that would look great in them.
