Replacing the Carpet

Replacing the carpet in your condo may not be something you want to do but it is something that can make a serious difference to the value and appearance of your home if you are decorating the baby nursery or bedroom. In fact, after you have replaced your carpet you will be pleasantly surprised at how much better, cleaner and newer your condo looks. There are several options when it comes to replacing your carpet. Make sure you compare colors, materials, styles and installation options when you are replacing the carpet in your condo.

How to Replace your Carpet

Replacing your carpet starts by ripping out what is there. You can hire a professional to rip out your carpet and lay down a new material or you can do it yourself. If you are choosing to replace your carpet yourself make sure you have set enough time and have all the materials you need to get the job done right. If you are unsure of how to do it then it's best to leave the work to a professional. Most carpet companies can easily have your old carpet removed and your new floor laid in one day or less. Replacing your carpet on your own will most likely take a full weekend or longer. Make sure you compare price quotes of different carpet companies ahead of time to see how much they charge for materials, labor and installation.

Choosing your New Flooring

If you are replacing your carpet with a different carpet then you will need to think about colors and materials. Are you looking for a light weight carpet in a pastel color or do you want something bold and bright to really make your house stand out? Do you want the same carpet throughout the home or do you want a different color for each room? Do you want a soft fluffy carpet that is comfortable enough to sleep on or do you want something that is sort and easier to keep clean? Before you can even think about replacing your carpet, you need to decide what is most suitable for your living space.

You may want to replace your carpet with a different type of material. Linoleum, tiles, hardwood floor and laminate are all excellent options. Hardwood floor and laminate are often the best choices for bedrooms and lounge rooms where your carpet most likely was to begin with. Consider the prices per square foot of your favorite carpet options as well as your favorite hardwood floor color or laminate designs. Choosing laminate or hardwood flooring offers a much easier way to keep the house clear of any dust and allergens but it is often less comfortable to lay on. However, you can easily invest in a soft fuzzy area rug to place over the hardwood flooring to give your home a rustic yet cozy feel.

There are several reasons to replace your carpet. Sometimes even the best steam cleaner in the world cannot make an old carpet look new again, especially if your carpet is a light color. Many people will look into a different flooring type if they have allergies or if they have pets in the house. After all, carpet can hide dust, fur and other allergens a lot better than hardwood floor or tile which means your sniffling, sneezing, stuffy nose issue could be caused by the carpet. If you are looking to update the look of your home or refresh the area then replacing the carpet will give you a dynamic change. Even if you are keeping the color the same you will still be blown away by how much nicer your room looks with newly installed carpet.
