Living Room Carpet
What carpet is best for living room?
The carpet you install in your living room is going to see a lot of activity as well as plenty of traffic, as being the second most communal space in any home (second to the kitchen, course).
You’ll need to make sure that your living room carpet is strong, durable, comfortable and beautiful, as well as soft enough to encourage people to come into the space and feel like they are right at home – whether they are friends, family, or guests.
It’s also not a bad idea to look for carpet for your living room that is easy to clean and maintain with plenty of colour and personality to set the tone and atmosphere of the living room space
What is the most durable carpet for living areas?
While you will have plenty of options to pick and choose from when it comes time to purchase living room carpet for your space, the most durable options you can pick and choose from – carpet for your living room that will last a decade or longer before it even looks like it might need to be upgraded or replaced – are little bit more limiting.
The most durable carpet options are far and away nylon in the synthetic department and wool on the natural fiber side of things. Nylon fibers are incredibly strong, soil as well as mildew resistant, very resilient and capable of standing up to high-traffic areas like the living room, and also have the ability of being hypoallergenic.
Wool fibers offer a lot of the benefits that nylon offers though they aren’t quite as lightweight or as soft, though the difference is negligible. They also stand up well to high-traffic areas and make a fantastic addition to a living space.
How much does it cost to carpet a large living room?
A couple of different factors are going to come into play when it comes to figuring out the total cost for carpeting a larger living room, including (though not limited to):
- The size of the space that you are carpeting
- The cost of the type of carpet you are having installed
- Whether or not you have any older carpet removed and disposed of
- Whether or not subfloor preparation or underlayment needs to occur
- The cost of having your carpet installed by professionals
… And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

What do you need to consider when choosing carpet for your living room?
The fibre options you pick are going to have a huge impact on how your living room flooring looks as well as how it feels, but also how it stands up to the test of time moving forward. You want a quality fibre that can withstand pretty much anything you can throw at it, as your living room is one of the most highly trafficked spaces in any home or property.
Durability and ease of cleaning and maintaining is another big piece of the puzzle you want to be sure you get right. Finding the right colour for your new carpet is another key factor you want to think about, as well as how the carpet is going to play with the rest of your furniture and interior decor.
What colours are best for your living room?
Neutral colours are always a best seller when it comes to carpet, though most people usually lean towards neutral colours that are a little bit darker compared to the kinds of neutral paint options that go on walls.
Think about natural shades as well, everything from green and blue to grey and brown. Beige is another smart way to go – not too dark but not too light, really offering a lot of warm ambience while at the same time helping to hide stains, dirt, and debris.
