It’s not just pretty, though--it’s also a workhorse, insulating temperature (if a room is either chilly or warm, it will hold on to that), muffling noise and providing safety against hard falls.
Remember those iconic Shag gold, green and brown colors of the 1970s and 1980s? Well, modern technology has expanded the palette in the early 2000s, and now you can get anything from red to purple to blue (and, of course, green, gold and brown if you want.)
The rugs are funky and fun, but, remember, they’re often referred to as “sheepdog rugs” for a reason. If you hate to clean, that might not be the rug for you.
One of the questions we hear most often is: “I have a pet, and I worry about the occasional accident. Maybe I shouldn’t have a rug?” No, Dallas, today’s carpet has evolved into one of ultra-durability, stain and soil resistance. Sometimes, that characteristic is built right into the fiber (we like to call it the fiber’s DNA) so if you have a pet, go ahead with this installation.
As for patterning, it wasn’t that long ago when designs appeared only on the tips of the fiber. With digital printing, however, the designs go deep into the thread and that creates an installation with the “Wow” factor for the flooring in your Fort Worth home.
What about hardwood?
No discussion about carpet can be complete without addressing wood, because that flooring is the subject of the designer’s installation debate to which we earlier referred.
A wood floor does add richness and elegance to a home. It is suitable for any decor, never goes out of style and lasts for years. They do add value to your home, and potential buyers will often pay 2.5% more for a home with wood floors.
If you’re concerned about water damage, know that there are two kinds of hardwood: solid and engineered. While solid can warp from water, the construction of engineered is such that it has more stability and is better able to handle water.
