Making Smarter Design Decisions

When you decide to renovate your home, you might be tempted to head to the design showroom and pick out all of your favorite things. Unfortunately, that shade of green you adore now might not be your favorite six months from now. I have spent a lot of time and money designing my own home, and I know how easy it can be to make a few expensive mistakes. That is one of the reasons I decided to create a website dedicated to helping other people make smarter design decisions. By reading these articles, you might be able to create a beautiful, luxurious space.


Why Carpet Is Great For Bedrooms

If you are thinking about the right flooring for the bedrooms in your home, you may be thinking about other bedrooms you have been in. Many homes have carpet in the bedrooms, even if they have hardwood flooring everywhere else in the home. You might be wondering why this is and if you should follow suit and go this way in your own home. You can learn more about why so many people chose to have carpet installed in their bedrooms here: 

Carpet can create a more comfortable space

There is something about a carpeted floor that just helps you feel more comfortable when you are trying to relax before bed. It has a softer look that goes well with the thought of rest and relaxation. Also, the carpet will physically feel more comfortable for you to walk on with your bare feet as you are preparing to go to bed or are just waking up in the morning. Carpet can be especially more comfortable than a hard floor on cold mornings when you get out of bed and start walking around on it. If you have problems with your feet, such as plantar fasciitis, then having warmer and softer carpeting to walk on in the morning will be especially important. 

Carpet can help create a quieter space

Carpet is great when it comes to absorbing sound. When you are trying to go to sleep, or already asleep in your bedroom, the carpet can be what helps prevent you from hearing things going on in the rest of the house. This way, your sleep isn't affected by other people still being up and moving around while you are trying to get a good night's sleep. If you have a very large and open house, then carpet can also be a great idea for the rest of the house, so it doesn't have very noisy and echoing areas. 

Carpet can help keep the bedroom warmer

Carpet also helps to hold the heat in a room better to help it stay warmer. When it gets chilly at night and first thing in the morning, you will appreciate the fact that the carpet is helping to keep your bedroom warmer than some other areas of the home where you may have hard flooring. If you live in a very cold region, then you should really consider carpet for all the living areas of your home because it can help keep your home warmer.
