People tend to frown upon the thought of carpet flooring; yet, carpet seems to be used in just about every home in the country. The fact of the matter is carpet stands as a very functional floor type. It’s also cheap. Does carpet bring the same appeal as hardwood or natural stone flooring? Perhaps not. But does it provide comfort and is it affordable? Yes. Carpet flooring in Fort Worth, TX has plenty to offer.
Why choose carpet flooring in Fort Worth, TX?
We’ve mentioned it already, but allow us to elaborate on the affordability of carpet. Carpet costs can run high, but only for a select few. For the more common carpet materials like nylon, olefin and polyester, you should find them to cost less than $3 per square foot. Beyond the cost of the material, a carpet pad needs to be purchased, and the remaining costs will go to installation.
A carpet pad is placed beneath the carpet to provide extra protection and cushion. A urethane pad will cost roughly $0.89 per square foot, while a fiber cushion pad will cost closer to $1.30 per square foot. It’s a necessary purchase and it will add to the overall cost only slightly.
In addition, carpet flooring installation is far more affordable than other floor types like hardwood and natural stone. The installation process is not as precise and fragile. On average, carpet installation should cost no more than $11 per square foot.
These days, it seems homeowners are so caught up in appearance that they overlook the importance of comfort. We’re not here to try and convince you that carpet is the perfect floor type for your living room or dining room; however, there are certain rooms in a home that should be less about appearance and more about comfort.
For example, bedrooms.
When you get out of bed in the morning or in the middle of the night, it’s nice to feel a material that is soft to the touch rather than hard. Plus, if you are one of those people who likes to trek to the bathroom in the dark then it’s nice to have carpet beneath you in case you trip and fall.
And it’s not like carpet flooring is ugly. As long as it is kept clean, carpet offers a very refreshing appeal. It can be purchased in many different styles and colors. Again, there’s a reason it is found in practically every U.S. home.
Start with professional installation
Back to installation, some homeowners feel that because carpet is not quite as precise to install as other flooring types that they can install it on their own. Don’t be fooled; carpet installation is no cake walk. It still requires precision. Measurements have to be perfect, as does cutting and everything in between.
Thus, you should always rely on professional installation. We say it about every type of floor…the last thing you want is to screw up the installation on your own and deal with either an imperfect floor or have to call a professional to fix it. It’s okay to have a middle man anytime your home is undergoing some sort of home remodel. After all, you’ll be the one living in and with the remodel for many years to come.
