What’s best, an area rug or wall to wall carpeting?

The choice between an area rug and wall to wall carpeting in Reno NV will usually involve taking into account the needs of the space, the activities in the space and your family. As any carpet or rug purchase can involve considerable expense it is always best to thoroughly research all the options before you decide. Of course with one option you are faced with permanence and with the other the option of exchangeability it is important to take into account the traffic patterns, matching décor and your budget; each option has its own set of advantages and disadvantages.

Wall to wall carpeting is complimentary to many color schemes and décor styles as it is available in a range of neutral colors such as gray, cream, tan, etc. These carpets can stand up to a lot of abuse as many manufacturers treat it with a stain resistant coating; kids and their pets can track in the mud with little problem.

These are all positive points but wall to wall carpeting may not be the best choice for some people.
