Speaking of daring, you may be part of a trend toward combining your carpet with other products for some striking results. Take carpet borders, which have always been available, but not in such striking possibilities as we are experiencing. If you are planning on being daring like this, it is important to tell your flooring professional up front so you can be shown the carpets with the stunning factory borders arriving in the showrooms. If the carpet that you have taking a liking to does not have ready-made borders, a specially flooring retailer will have no problem designing what you need and want.
Not only should you thinking about carpet with borders of the same materials, consider combining styles of carpets. A cut pile can be combined with a loop pile carpet or even a cut and look pile carpet for a custom effect. These days there are no rights or wrongs: it’s all about personal taste.
If you want to really mix media, inset carpet into a wood floor that you’ve been thinking of replacing. These are not do-it-yourself projects but can be customized by a store that specializes in flooring. Visit your local flooring retailer and see for yourself.
