Karastan Carpet Broadlooms and Wool Blends
With autumn in the air and activities soon moving indoors it’s time to consider a few home décor updates. From pumpkins to autumn leaves, the colors and styles of fall are some of the most vibrant. Consider incorporating into your space orange or earthy brown tones or a dot of gold to coordinate with the outdoor natural beauty. With many options to consider updating your home for fall, don’t forget the big role the perfect carpet plays in tying in your décor. The perfect fall carpet needs to keep your feet warm and cozy while still being able to stand up to the mud, leaves and slush of fall in the northeast, and still maintain gorgeous color.
Here are a few ideas on how to choose the perfect carpet for fall:
Step 1: Choose Your Location
Where you plan to put your carpet will help you decide what type of carpet to purchase. Family rooms and stairs are high direct traffic areas so will require denser, more durable carpets with heavier weights, which makes these areas great for wool carpets. Wool carpets have superior durability and are easy to clean. If you are looking to upgrade a bedroom or an area that receives less traffic, you can be more flexible in the type of carpet you choose. Consider Karastan SmartStrand carpets because of the silky softness they give to your feet.
Step 2: Choose A Color
This may seem obvious, but color selection is one of the most important aspects of the carpet you choose. A lighter tone is more resistant to fading that a deeper rich color. For a sunroom or den with large windows and a lot of natural sunlight, a softer hue is essential. For a fun fall guest room think of using bold colors, like rich orange or golds. To accent the man cave, go with a distressed carpet that gives the space a rustic look with a luxurious feel, letting your feet sink into the carpet for your personal retreat.
Step 3: Choose A Fiber
When it comes to finding the perfect fall carpet, durability and ease of cleaning should be at the top of your list for things to consider. Wool fibers are extremely durable while also beautiful. Wool also helps insulate your floor as autumn temperatures continue to drop. Other fibers like Karastan SmartStrand fibers are created with superior durability and extreme softness in mind. These carpets are made to protect against spills and pet stains yet allow the silky fibers feel comfortable beneath your feet.
