Carpet as a flooring material stands out for providing a cushiony, warm feel to a home. Different materials are used to make carpets.

You must pick one with the right design while at the same time matching with the overall aesthetic of your home in order to strike the right balance. Here are some of the carpet materials that we use to manufacture our products.

Different Sizes of Carpets
No matter how large or small the carpet is, choosing the correct size can bring your room together and give it a cohesive look. Choosing a rug should be based on the layout of the room. Here are a few things you need to know before you shop for carpets for each room.
Living Room Carpet
Carpets in living rooms are among the most significant elements of interior design. 9' x 12' is the most popular size for a living room carpet. In addition, your furniture arrangement and the size of the room influence the size of your carpet. Carpets measuring 6' x 9' or 8' x 10' in living room spaces are good options as well.
Having carpets in the bedroom conveys a cosy and welcoming feel while also adding a style of its own. In order to ensure that your bedroom carpets have the proper size, they must be aligned with the length and width of your bed. The location and the size of the room will determine which measurements work best. In order to really bring the bedroom look together, along with the bed and nightstands, a 9' by 12' rug is an excellent option. The rug sizes - 8' x 10' or 6' x 9' - can also be suitable options depending on your taste.
Dining room carpets are a great way to adorn dining tables. They should be big enough to place the table and chairs. Scale the carpeting to the room. A 9' by 12' rug can comfortably fit most seven-piece dining sets. A 4' or 6' round rug that replicates the set's silhouette can also work well with a dining bistro set in a cozier dining space.
Hallway and Entryway Styling
Carpets take center stage in hallways and entryways. Usually, furniture is arranged along one side of the room and the rug is placed in the middle. Runner carpets, which are long and thin carpets, are perfect for hallways and other places where you'd like to clearly mark the direction. The most common runner heights are 8' and 12'. Other sizes include 6' x 8' and 3' x 12'.
How do I choose a good quality carpet?
The quality of the carpet is as significant as its appearance. As you select the fabric, style, and design, it becomes easier to determine the quality. It is imperative to check for factors like the material type, thickness, fabric quality, and stitches per inch and how long it will last.
When does the carpet need to be replaced?
Typically, carpet fibers get tattered within three to five years of regular use. So if you notice that your carpet is looking a bit worse for wear after regular use, you may want to consider getting a new one.
How often do I need to clean my carpet?
A carpet requires comprehensive cleaning every 12 to 18 months to keep it looking and operating at its best. This is not a rule, though; rather, it is a guideline and may vary depending on the fabric, weather, use, and other factors.
