Getting Your House Ready for the Holidays
Thanksgiving and the winter holidays are right around the corner, and one thing that goes hand in hand with this time of the year is gathering with family. If you’ll be hosting relatives this winter season, you may wonder what you can do to make it a beautiful, welcoming space for visitors. Consider getting your house ready for the holidays with new flooring. The good news is that if you book installation soon, you can breathe fresh life into your home with time to spare!
If your carpet is more than 7 years old, has unsightly stains, fading, uneven wear patterns, or just plain smells a little “off,” it’s time for you to update your flooring. When consideringnew carpeting, choose a neutral color that complements your current decor but is flexible enough to work with a variety of designs. If you’ve got pets, kids, or heavy foot traffic, picking a carpet that’s highly stain-resistant is a must! But choosing something functional doesn’t mean you have to scrimp on comfort -- softness and durability aren’t mutually exclusive!
Just think of the compliments you’ll receive when your houseguests walk in to find pristine, plush carpeting in your guest bedrooms or living room. And because family gatherings can sometimes lead to unexpected spills or messes, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that when the red wine is poured, cousin Bill’s butter fingers won’t destroy your new carpet.

On the other hand, if you’re looking for a sleek, modern makeover for your outdated hard flooring, installing versatile, low-maintenanceluxury vinyl plank (LVP) is the perfect solution.

The average homeowner typically pays $2 to $8 per square foot for carpet and installation, with factors such as thickness, durability, softness and carpet pad influencing the price. You should expect to pay more for higher quality carpet but beware of paying a higher price for a name brand (but an inferior product) or getting charged additional fees on top of your project quote for things like moving furniture or the disposal of your old carpet.
With the birth of HGTV and the home renovation show, people started ripping up the linoleum that covered their original hardwood floors, and the hardwood look became the ideal for hard-surface flooring. The beauty of hardwoods is undeniable, but over time, people began to recognize its shortcomings - it’s expensive to install and repair, scratches easily, and is very susceptible to water damage.
