After the long, hot summer that we just experienced, it may be hard to remember what colder weather feels like. The time is quickly approaching though when we will trade our flip flops for cozy socks and insulated boots. Inevitably there will come a morning when you get out of bed, place your bare feet on the floor and quickly pull them back under the warm covers. In that moment, you will wish you had carpet.

It may seem like common sense that carpet is a warmer flooring option than hardwood or laminate, but the why is a little more complex. You can tell immediately once your feet touch carpet in winter months that it is warmer than your bare floor, but did you know that having carpet throughout your home can actually warm it?

That is because carpet acts as a type of insulation, especially if your home was constructed on a concrete slab with nothing below it. When your feet touch the bare hardwood or laminate floor in winter months, the floor surface can be cooler than your body temperature, even if the room is heated correctly. A properly installed carpet will reduce the rate of heat loss in the room it is in, making the room feel warmer.

The type of carpet installed will determine the insulation effect of the carpet. Our team at Magnus Anderson specializes in finding the right carpet flooring solutions for our clients. With so many textures, styles, and colors to choose from, carpet installation is an inexpensive and simple flooring solution. As a matter of fact, according to “Floor Covering Weekly”, more people are choosing carpet over any other type of flooring option. While the most popular choice is carpeting made of durable nylon fiber, many clients are opting for a natural fiber like wool as well.

Spring time is the perfect time to consider making some flooring changes to your home. The flooring options for homeowners and homebuilders are numerous, but many homeowners and homebuilders will choose carpet flooring for at least some of the rooms in their homes, particularly the bedroom areas and the living room and den areas. While hardwood flooring or other flooring alternatives are popular with many homeowners and homebuilders, the use of carpet in homes has not diminished over the past few decades, and for many good reasons.

Carpet is functional and practical. The majority of homeowners and homebuilders will choose carpet that is comfortable to walk on. There are several carpet options that are not just comfortable to walk on, but also to sit on as well. In the cooler months of the year, carpet acts as an insulator, trapping heat. This usually results in a lower heating bill for residents. Carpet also acts a noise insulator. You can tell a difference in sound quality in a room that is carpeted versus one that is not.

Carpet provides safety features as well. People tend not to fall as easily on carpet, and when they do, injuries seem to be less severe, as carpet cushions their fall. This is particularly helpful in homes with small children and older adults. Believe it or not, new carpet can also help with the air quality of the home. Dust, dirt and air allergens get trapped in the fibers of carpet instead of floating in the air of the room. People struggling from breathing issues may see their symptoms improve with carpet installation.

There are so many high quality options when it comes to carpet. From plush to practical, and everything in between. Magnus Anderson specializes in flooring for new and existing homes. The professionals at Magnus Anderson want to help you find the right carpet option for you. We will walk with you every step of the way of your project from the consultation to picking out the perfect carpet and installing it to your satisfaction.

Your home is more than just a house. It’s a statement of your creative style. You want your home to represent your taste while also maintaining functionality for your family.

Carpet could be the perfect way to update your home this year and create the space that you’ve always wanted!

For high-traffic areas of the home, choose carpet in styles like Berber. For a more upscale look choose a patterned carpet. There are endless options for you to personalize your living space.

Choosing carpet is more than a choice in style. Carpet helps to insulate your home from the harsh cold of winter and the dreaded heat of summer. This can be a huge advantage for your heat and Air conditioning bills.

Carpeting is also the perfect home flooring choice for a family. Carpet reduces the risk of slips and falls by providing traction and provides a cushion for a new baby learning to crawl across the floor! And bonus – that same carpet will also reduce noise as your kids grow and start running around and listening to loud music in their bedrooms.

Carpeting today isn’t the carpet you had as a kid. Today’s carpets are durable, stylish, and easy to clean. New technology helps prevent stains and keeps high traffic areas looking just as great as the day your carpet was installed with the proper cleaning and maintenance.

Imagine waking up in the morning and stepping out of your warm, cozy bed and onto the plush warmth of brand new carpet! Never feel cold, hard floors in your early morning haze again.

Carpets make your house cozy, expansive, and warm.

During the winter months, homeowners who currently have hardwood or laminate floors may start thinking about having carpet installed. One too many cold mornings can leave them wondering if carpet would be worth the investment. Practically speaking, because of carpets ability to retain heat, you could absolutely see a reduction in your heating bill if you install it. However, beyond that, there are many aesthetic and practical reasons why you should consider installing carpet in your home.

Because of the many styles and colors of carpet, your design options are practically endless. While Berber is still a very popular choice among home builders and homeowners, there are many other pile styles as well, like the highly textured frieze style or the shag style. Other choices include plush pile, and Saxony. You can choose carpets made out of manmade materials like polyester, nylon or acrylics, or carpets made out of natural materials like wool. Natural materials such as wool tend to be among the most expensive carpet options.

Before you decide which carpet you would like to install in your home, there are certain things to consider. Where do you want to install carpet in your home? Some homeowners opt for wall to wall carpet in most living spaces, while others decide to install carpet only in the bedrooms. Do you need carpet that is pet friendly? Sometimes our pets can really cause a great deal of wear and tear on our carpet surfaces. There are carpet options that would be best for homeowners with pets that will help to reduce the wear and tear. When carpet is installed, a foam, rubber, or fiber underlayment is put down first. This is used to reduce noise, provide cushioning and help extend the life of the carpet. Your carpet installer will know which to use for your particular carpet choice. How will you clean your carpet? Before purchasing and installing carpet, you should have an idea of how to properly care for it.
