Carpet isnt a common choice for kitchens and bathrooms these days but if you do opt for carpet in either of these areas pick one that is water resistant and stain resistant. Water can easily damage carpet causing it to rot and youll soon find yourself replacing it. Its not feasible to keep water off a carpet in a bathroom entirely but with a carpet with good water resistance and perhaps some extra rugs you can have a carpeted bathroom if you really want to. Carpet in a bathroom can actually be reassuring for the elderly or those who are unsteady on their feet as theres less chance of slipping than you have with tiles or laminate and if you should fall theres less chance of injury with a slightly softer landing.
Search online for a list of renowned carpet sellers in your vicinity. Many retailers come up with devious tricks and gimmicks to sell their carpets but do not fall for them. Remember a reputable carpet retailer will not resort to such tactics. When youre choosing carpets for your home it can often seem overwhelming. There is just so much choice out there! Or you might be the type of person who simply picks out the fluffiest carpet or their favourite colour. However if you put in some time to really think about your choices both in looks and practicality you could well find that your carpets last a lot longer meaning youll have to replace them less frequently and therefore of course saving you money - which is great!
Carpeted common corridors in condominiums often have stylized borders and irregularly shaped hallways that require several carpet panels to be seamed together to complete the installation. The manner in which carpet seams are expected to be constructed has changed dramatically over the last five years. Unfortunately no one seems to have informed the carpet installers. There is just no mechanism in the industry that keeps the carpet installers and retailers informed on industry changes. According to the Carpet and Rug Institutes Standard for Carpet Installation 2011 glued down carpet is supposed to have all cut edges seam sealed with a thermo plastic adhesive or something similar.
Then a third bead of seam sealer is supposed to be applied to one edge of the seam to "weld" together the carpet panels. Most carpet installers and retailers are unaware of this requirement. It is no wonder that seams are fuzzing in so many buildings. Unfortunately the blame for fuzzing seams gets placed on the carpet manufacturer the carpet cleaners the vacuum cleaners and the latest one is the new LEED approved carpet adhesive. There is nothing further from the truth. The reason the architects and the carpet manufacturers insist on all cut edges of the carpet be encapsulated with a seam sealer is that they need it. The construction of carpet and the adhesives used to bind the primary and secondary backings has changed for a number of reasons primarily to make carpet a carpet "greener".
