Why Wall-To-Wall Carpeting Is Not Out Of Date
Wall-to-wall carpeting, like any other trend, has gone in and out of style over the years. Today, however, it is back in style in a bigger and better way.
Elijah Chique, a third generation carpet repair expert and the Owner of Express Carpet Repairs in Queensland, explains why wall-to-wall carpeting is not out of date and how many people are actively choosing to use it in their homes.
“When many people think of carpet in their homes, they picture the 1970s and 1980s – garish floral patterns, bright geometrical designs, and even the shag carpet,” says Chique. The recent decades have not been kind to wall-to-wall carpeting and many people have ripped them out during renovations. However, carpet is making a comeback.
Today’s carpeting trends are far simpler than they were in the 70s and 80s. The colours are more monochrome and neutral, rather than eccentric colours and patterns. Placing a neutral carpet in a room creates a blank canvas to decorate the rest of the room. As carpet technology has improved over time, there are now more options in different loops sizes as well as different weaves and designs. Carpet also softens sounds and light, and as it is soft to the touch, it is pleasurable to our senses.
Carpeting has become a practical flooring solution as there are now many options for all budgets. Choosing the correct carpet underlay can also make an inexpensive carpet look more expensive and luxurious. Carpet is an excellent insulator, thus making it a perfect option for the colder months, and helps save people money on the electricity bill.
“Modern carpets are also being designed for ultimate convenience and sustainability. New technology enables carpets to be eco-friendly as many are made using recycled materials. They are also being made to resist dirt and stains, making them easier to clean and last longer,” says Chique.
One of the biggest selling points of a carpet is the fact that it is much simpler to fix than other flooring options. If the carpet is ripped or torn, this can be repaired without replacing the whole carpet. “There are many other carpet problems that can be fixed before needing a full replacement. For example, if there is an irremovable stain on the carpet this can be patched, or if there are bubbles or ripples in carpets they can be re- stretched, making the carpet look good as new,” explains Chique.
