Moving into a New Home: Carpet Tips for Homeowners

Due to the uncertainties stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, many families are choosing to exit NYC and relocate to prominent communities like Scarsdale, White Plains, Armonk, and other surrounding areas in Westchester County. These communities are safe, thriving neighborhoods with access to top-quality education and a variety of activities to engage in, making them an appealing choice for families. ?

Moving into a new home can evoke a whirlwind of emotions ? excitement, stress, and even a bit of trepidation. Sifting through your belongings, packing, deciding what to bring and what to part with, and getting settled in ? all while following safety protocols and social distancing ? makes the word ?overwhelming? feel like an understatement. That?s why it?s more important than ever to stay organized and set the right foundation for your new home.??

Setting the Tone for Your New Home

A good way to start out on the right foot in your new home is to have it clean and ready before you begin moving items in. An excellent place to dive in is with new floors. Installing new carpets saves you time and frustration with trying to properly clean existing carpets and ensures that your home is fresh and safe to move into. New carpeting also allows you to add your own design flair and style, which will help the new house truly feel like ?home.? Flooring is the foundational element of every room in your home and the type of carpet you choose sets the tone for everything else.? Having your carpets installed before you move in also saves you the hassle of moving furniture for the installation process later.

The Comfort a Carpet Brings

Carpets allow you to bring your own aesthetic presence into any room ? giving you the opportunity to make your home a warm, inviting place to relax and make new memories. There are some things to consider when choosing the right carpet for your new home. While things like style and color are usually at the forefront of the decision-making process, it?s important to understand the different materials available and the comfort levels that come with each. Understanding the quality and durability of different materials will ensure long-term satisfaction and comfort. After all, carpets are one of the largest investments in your home, so making an educated decision is key.

Carpet Options For Your New Home:

Nylon ? One of the most durable synthetic carpet fibers available. It is resilient and a top carpeting choice for families with young kids and lots of foot traffic?

Polyester ? This carpet fiber is stain-resistant while being super soft and an affordable option. Great for high traffic areas and homes with pets and kids.?

Wool ? A naturally durable and energy-efficient carpet option. Adds value to your home and is one of the easiest carpets to clean and maintain. It is also hypoallergenic.?

Polypropylene ? This is an affordable synthetic fiber option. It isn?t quite as durable as nylon or polyester fibers, but it is stain-resistant and easy to clean. It is made to handle extreme weather, messes, and scratches. A great indoor/outdoor carpet option.
