You could search for the latest trends online or you could just go by what pleases your eye. Use your common sense for simple colour ideas like going for a dark colour if you have small kids or pets at home and opting for soft shades to add a contrasting effect to a room with dark coloured walls. If you want to create a relaxed homely feel in your house you could go for earthy tones. Be mindful of placing dark coloured carpets in an area that receives direct sunlight as that can result in the fading of the carpets colour over time. Cleaning a carpet properly is hard work and time consuming. You need to pick a carpet depending on how often you plan to clean it.
In case plain water has failed to do the trick dilute a small amount of mild bleach in water together with a small amount of liquid detergent (go for bleach mixtures that can be used on colored fabrics and test in an inconspicuous area such as inside a closet-DO NOT USE BLEACH ON NYLON OR WOOL RUGS). This mixture will help remove the remaining stubborn stains. But if the carpet stain is not entirely removed by the said solution go for a mild chemical stain remover for carpets. You have to choose the milder solution because we all know how sensitive expensive carpet fibers are we want the stain removed but we do not want our carpets damaged.
Carpet in high traffic areas of the home such as halls and stairways can be problematic if you dont make the right choices. A tough hard wearing carpet is a must. When youre buying a carpet the hard wearing ones will be clearly marked but if in doubt ask your retailer. Even if youre buying your carpets online dont forget that you can still ask questions. Any good online retailer will soon reply to your emails and will answer your phone calls promptly. You should also consider colour in these high traffic areas. You may have to compromise for the sake of longevity. You may have your heart set on a pale cream hall carpet to brighten up your dingy entrance way but in reality youll be spending so much time trying to keep it clean that youll probably wish youd gone for something a little darker. Halls get a lot of wear and tear especially if you have a large family. A dark or mid coloured carpet with a pattern is the best for not showing the dirt.
The cost for this type of carpet can be as expensive as using actual indoor carpet. Of course you pay for what you get so you will not be disappointed by the product in most cases. Expect to pay around one hundred dollars for a carpet that is around eight feet by twelve feet. To carpet an entire room wall to wall you can quadruple that number. Well it is worth the money if you will be using and enjoying the area is it a big selling point if you are trying to sell your home that answer is probably no. It is worth the investment because it reduces the stress of having to keep up with carpet that is not made for outdoor use.
