3 reasons to consider installing carpet during your next home renovation project

Create a warm, welcoming space with these modern carpeting solutions.

As we leave summer behind, it’s time to look forward to spending more evenings with our families gathered around to play board games and watch movies. Now is a great time to make sure your home is ready to keep everyone warm and cozy this fall and winter.

While carpet in the basement or recreation room might not always be the obvious choice, it certainly offers a lot of perks that make it worthy of consideration. Jasbir Hundal, owner of Fair Deal Carpets Ltd. in Chilliwack shares her top three reasons you should consider refinishing your basement with carpet this month.

“Carpet can be a great addition to almost any room and redoing your basement in the summer means it’ll be ready for your family to enjoy before the rain returns,” Hundal says. “We often suggest Mohawk brand carpets for basements and recreation rooms because they’re easy to clean, come in a variety of colours and are an affordable flooring solution.”

Top 3 reasons to consider carpet for your recreation room makeover!

  1. Affordable and sustainable: Many carpets today are made with recycled plastic products, making them an excellent choice for the eco-conscious. They’re also one of the most affordable flooring solutions available with a wide range of products to choose from. Mohawk’s Everstrand line in particular is made using recycled plastics and offers a wide variety of colour and pattern options.
  2. Durable and pet friendly: These aren’t your grandparents’ carpets! While concerns about staining and pet odour may have deterred home owners from considering carpet before, modern carpets are designed to last. Try Mohawk’s Smartstrand carpets, designed with pet friendly homes in mind. Smartstrand carpets are durable, odour resistant, easy to clean and come with built-in stain protection. Best of all, they offer zero per cent moisture absorption, so whether you’re house training your new puppy or worried about spills from the kids, your carpets are up for anything.
  3. Warm, soft and welcoming: Nothing beats the comfort of soft, plush carpet under foot on a cold winter day. While other flooring solutions require the additional purchase of throw rugs or in-floor heating to take the chill out of the floor, carpets are an easy solution to creating a warm and welcoming space. New products like Smartstrand Silk offer three times the softness of traditional carpets, making them the best choice for creating a comfortable space for your family to enjoy.
