With so many beautiful carpet choices to choose from at your Franklin flooring store, it can be tough to select just the right styles for your home. To make that process a little easier, it's helpful to do some research before buying and to work with a flooring specialist that can offer his or her advice and expertise. Let's explore some of the factors that you must consider when choosing carpet:
Your Family's Lifestyle
One of the most important factors you will want to consider when choosing carpet for any room in the home is your lifestyle or the everyday activities of your family members. If you have small children or pets, then be sure to look for carpet that is durable and capable of standing up to not only stains but also lots of wear. Since some carpets are more hypo-allergenic than others, this is also something to consider when factoring in the needs of your family members.
The Lighting Scheme Indoors
Does your home offer plenty of windows and natural lighting? If so, then you have much more range when it comes to colors. Lighter rooms can handle carpet in color shades both dark and light, whereas naturally dark rooms are best complemented by lighter colored carpeting. To make sure that a carpet selection fits with your lighting, ask your flooring expert for a swatch to take home to observe in that element.
Color and Design Appeal
A final consideration you have to take into account is the interior design theme already established in your home. If you have lots of curtains, pillows, or other textiles in busy fabrics and prints, then it is best to pair your interiors with a chic yet simple carpet style. As previously stated, any carpet you select will appear differently in the store than your home so be sure to check the color using a carpet sample before you make your purchases.

If you're a dog owner, then you know that when you go to select flooring, it's not just the needs of you and your family that you have to keep in mind but also those of your four-legged friend. As the interior design expert in this video shares, some flooring options are in fact better than others for a home that has one or more dogs. Hardwood can be a great investment for dog owners and homeowners if the wood is genuine and not laminate.
If hardwood is in fact the type of flooring you had in mind, then be sure to have it stained a lighter shade so that any scratches left behind by your pup won't drastically stand out. You can achieve similarly attractive results in the home by selecting tile that resembles hardwood, which has the added bonus of being virtually immune to scratching from dog paws.
No matter what type of flooring you require for your home remodeling project, the friendly staff here at Carpet Den Interiors can help you find it. Call (615) 656-7662 to learn more about the flooring styles we carry.

Are you looking for simple yet effective ways to enhance the look and feel of your home? If so, then be sure to talk to the experts at your Franklin home remodeling store about the benefits of installing hardwood flooring in your humble abode. Let's take a closer look at how hardwood flooring enhances your indoor environment:
Reduce Indoor Allergens and Pollutants
Did you know that hardwood flooring can actually reduce the amount of pollutants and allergens that circulate in your home? Unlike certain types of carpet that trap dust, dander, and other substances that could pose an allergy problem to family members and pets, wood does not harbor these pollutants. Furthermore, since wood can be cleaned easily with a simple mop and vacuum regimen, it remains dust-free for a longer period of time than alternative flooring types.
Increase Your Home's Eco-Friendliness
In addition to being one of the healthier flooring options for you to choose from, hardwood is also one of the most eco-friendly. This means that by installing hardwood floors, you will automatically reduce your home's carbon footprint. Its green factor comes from its long lifespan and the fact that commercial manufacturers invest considerably in new growth endeavors to make up for harvesting practices.
Add Timeless Charm to Your Indoor Space
Lastly, hardwood flooring enhances your indoor environment by boosting its overall appearance. No matter what style of décor you feature in your home, you're sure to find a species of hardwood that complements that style. Furthermore, hardwood is one of the most timeless flooring types for you to choose from and will continue to help your home look its finest no matter what interior design trends may come into fashion.
