Carpet Styles In Elizabethtown, KY
Depending on where you would like your new carpet installed, you may need to understand how different styles will suit different areas. For instance, your high activity areas such as a family room or child’s bedroom will need a balance of stain resistance, resiliency, softness and color. A formal living room, dining room, master bedroom, or guest bedroom will see less general activity and can safely allow for increased softness, increased texture, and overall luxuriousness. When carpeting your hallways or entranceways, select a carpet construction and fiber that handles foot traffic and remains easy to clean.
