Whether it’s a flooring installation in Fort Worth, or carpet in Dallas, the floor sets the foundation for the look of the entire room. Finish the floor first and then coordinate the rest.
Be mindful, however, that what’s appropriate for one room may not be great for a home office. While the home office may not have the same amount of foot traffic as, say, the living room, you do have other challenges, such as office chair mobility and equipment, heavy bookcases, file cabinets, desks, etc., on which a carpet can snag.
What Carpets Are Best for the Home Office?
● Choose something with a low pile, such as a Berber. The low pile makes it easier for office chairs to move, and the level loop makes snagging less of a possibility.
● Cut and loops are also a good choice. The fibers are cut short, and the loops are tight.
● Consider a commercial carpet, and know that they almost never “zipper.” Zippering is a term that means that when one loop is pulled, often a whole row can unravel. Zippering isn’t really much of a concern with residential carpets, so the fibers are stitched in a straight line
Commercial carpets, however, are designed especially to withstand the unique issues of an office. Therefore, the fibers are purposely stitched in a zig-zag manner, to prevent neighboring loops.
Finally, think also about a hardwood flooring installation, but do remember those challenges. Never drag furniture across the floor, and use protective pads and, possibly, a couple of strategically placed area rugs.
