Best Carpets for High Traffic Areas
Considering the wide array of selection available when shopping for new carpet, it can be very tempting to just narrow down your choices based on the price, design, or color. If you plan on changing carpet every so often, pick the first carpet design that tickles your fancy. However, if you plan on maximizing your carpet’s life, then you need to consider other important factors, especially when the area where the carpet is to be installed has heavy foot traffic.
Here are a few tips to help you when shopping for high traffic carpet that will save you money by keeping new carpets looking good for a long time.
Steer clear from light colored carpets such as white, gray, and light beige. They will only emphasize the stain and dirt on your carpet. Instead, choose darker colored carpets and those with random designs as they help conceal blemishes. These types of carpet design will definitely stand up to daily use and abuse.
Stick With Berber Carpet
Unless you live in a pet-free, kid-free home with lots of maids cleaning after you, please be practical and choose a Berber high traffic carpet for your home. Berber carpets are the most practical flooring choice, especially when you have pets, and kids, and you spill a couple of glasses of orange juice once in a while. The densely woven fibers repel dirt making it the perfect matting for high traffic areas in your home.
