A new carpet is more than just the latest in a series of things you lay down on the floor. It sets the tone for the room, with both its color and its feel. Think about the amount of time you spend on your feet at home – you want something that looks nice and feels great on your tired feet after a long day at work.
This is where plush carpeting comes in.
The name itself conjures images of something decadently soft, a class beyond what you are used to. This is the kind of carpeting for those looking to treat themselves in a subtle way. The kind of carpeting you deserve. We here at Ozburn-Hessey certainly think so, which is why we offer it from a number of retailers, as well as residential installation services for the greater Nashville area.
The first thing you will notice about plush carpeting is that it is denser than most carpets you come across. This is what gives it that more comforting feel, because every step you take allows your foot to sink deeper into the carpet, getting a nice hug from the soft fibers. This also makes plush carpets last longer than your average carpet, so you don’t have to worry about getting something new for quite a while. And honestly, after you have experienced the joys of plush carpeting, why would you want to?
This is the carpet that is perfectly suited to a master bedroom, or a dining room you are looking to add a touch of class to. When chosen in a darker color, the effects combine to make whatever room it is installed into one with an elegant, Old-World style. It’s a look that is easy to maintain as well, since the way plush carpeting is manufactured makes it more dirt resistant. And as a bonus, the natural cushion of the carpeting means you probably won't have to install a mat underneath, something we here at Ozburn-Hessey are happy to do anyway.
On the other hand, plush carpeting might not be the best option for every room. While the carpeting is resistant to dirt, it does have a tendency to show stains and vacuum marks more than the average carpet, which cuts down on the amount of class you can add to a room.
Additionally, stains will show up more vividly, so the carpet might best reserved for a room where drinks aren’t allowed, unless you trust the people drinking them. Another downside is the cost, which at anywhere between $610 and $780 for enough middle-grade material to cover a 500 square-foot area might be too expensive.
So while there are downsides, for many people the benefits they feel every time one of their feet touches the lush, inviting comfort of plush carpeting far outweighs them. If this feeling is something you decide you need in your life, then contact the professionals here at Ozburn-Hessey and let us find you the one thing to take your flooring game to the next level.
