Just Like Magic, Change The Look of Your
Entire House With New Carpeting From Advance
One of the least expensive ways to completely change
the look of large or small areas in your home is
through new carpet installation. New carpet
installation can add an element of color and style
to a room itself, or can be an accent to the pieces
of furniture and artwork in the room. Choosing
a color isn't the only way to add personal style to
a space with new carpeting, choose your texture and fiber to complement an existing design style or create
Advance Remodeling can do carpet installation by
itself, or as a part of a larger remodeling project.

Choosing your shade and texture of carpeting is a
decision that should be made after some
considerations for budget, design aesthetic, and
are some questions to ask yourself before selecting
your carpet choice:
A heavily used room is going to show wear more
quickly and therefore an elegant, white carpet
may not hold up well.
A room that is the entertainment center of the
home will need to be beautiful, but if the room is used for food and drink a
light colored carpet may be inappropriate.
Any room connected to a door from the exterior
of the home will likely experience heavy soiling
and require more maintenance.
Rooms that don't receive as much natural light
will need to be lighter in color to avoid
appearing too dark.
A large room can carry a darker color, while
lighter colors in smaller rooms will create the
illusion of more space.
If you will be enjoying this new carpet for
years to come, choose whichever style and color
suites you and your room decor. However,
if you are re-carpeting with the intent to sell,
choose neutral colors and simple textures to
avoid warding off potential buyers who may not
share your same style.

Carpeting feels great under
your feet and creates a comfortable sitting area.
It can come in thick, plush textures or provide a
sturdier surface for children to play that will
resist spills and clean more easily.

best carpet texture for your space. Here are
some of the types of textures:

Your carpet can be many different types of
fibers. The type of fiber you choose will have
a major impact on the durability and appearance of
your carpet. Most carpet is made of synthetic
fibers that provide an attractive appearance while
requiring minimum maintenance.
Here are some of the
types of carpet fibers:
This natural fiber is
beautiful and highly sought after for its warmth and
luxurious feel, however it is the most expensive
fiber and is not as stain resistant as synthetic
This synthetic fiber is
the most popular choice because it is available in a
variety of vibrant colors and it is easy to maintain
because it resists stains and is durable in the face
Another synthetic fiber,
it is a cheaper option than nylon and it is good for
outdoor use due to its moisture resistant
properties. It resists mildew and maintains
its color in sunlight, however it requires
consistent vacuuming because dirt will not stay on
top of the carpeting, but will lay at the backing.
It also melts at low temperatures which can cause
permanent marks by friction from moving pieces of
This synthetic can be
soft and luxurious as a plush carpet, but is not a
good choice for high traffic areas because it has a
low melting point that can show wear quickly and it
tends to fade in sunlight and lose height.
Polyester resists water based spills and is easy to
clean. Consider a polyester/nylon blend to
maximize the benefits of each.
This synthetic fiber can
resist mildew, stains, fading, and static
electricity while providing the look of wool.
However, it is not the best choice to stand up
against heavy traffic.
