How to make the carpet best fit to your home

By Charles Hopkins Published 08/31/2006 | Home Improvement

A few days ago Mr. and Mrs. Potter had a long debate on the issue of floor covering. Though you might find it very petty, but it really isnt so. Mrs. Potter constantly argued on the colors and designs of the carpets, whereas her husband constantly harped on a calculative note. What was it?

Mr. Potter pointed out the cost effective part of the carpeting process and how one can judiciously cover the floors without any wastage in the best possible way. Finally Mrs. Potters decision was kept with the figurative speculation of Mr. Potters concern and they really went for grand carpeting for their house. Can you defy that both the wheels of the homemaking chariot have to be on the easy move for family to live happily under the same roof?

In the very same way, you too must follow this calculative theory to make the carpet best fit to your home:

         Measure the accurate square feet area of your house keeping the specificity of individual rooms.

         Once your area measurement is done then you can calculate the price of the carpet and match the two.

         For example, you have a two-bedroom apartment. The area which you will cover with carpets forms a space of one-hundred yards. The cost of installing, along with the carpet, can charge you say 20 for each square yard. Its fine with you. But what happens if the preliminary calculation and measurement are faulty?

         The carpet salesperson may play a fool on you by giving you a wrong idea of the measurement and you are forced to pay more unnecessarily.

         Even if this doesnt happen, any mistake in the calculation in the first place will be a trouble area while undertaking the installation process. Because then whatever goes in waste cannot be made in any good use.

         A misreading in the area measurement up to 30 yards is a childs play for a carpet seller. You can never catch them unless you are aware of the fact and the figures. So it is always suggested not to completely depend on the carpet sellers in measuring the floor area. You can ask the help of an architect or a civil engineer for the details.

         Always try to get suggestions from persons who are experienced in carpet measuring. The accuracy and perfection which they can provide is not always a cup of tea for you and me.

         The strategic measurement of the floor area not only reduces the cost but also signifies the perfection in the decoration of your home.

         Both the over-measurement and the under-measurement of your house are faulty approaches towards the carpeting process. Leaving apart the expenses, the carpet area appears to be a shabby project undertaken by inefficient hands.

As the Potter couple very well knows that it is their house and their hard earned money, so avoiding any type of faulty measures is a part of their responsibility. What they did was a specific analysis of the floor area. After this, they selected the material for floor covering of their choice. All these were conducted under the supervision of a technical expert on carpeting. And they got perfect results.

Their endeavor in shaping their home beautifully calls for true appreciation. And if you are equally searching for that perfection, dont overrule these guidelines what Mr. and Mrs. Potter followed word-by-word.
