Our home has wall-to-wall carpet and is a cozy space right at the top of the stairs. I think of it as the second heartbeat room of our home because we spend so much time up here.
So I decided to tackle this space with some essential spring cleaning before the makeover and partnered with The Carpet & Rug Institute to show how I pulled this room together with decor and a cozy foundation of carpeting.
Carpet provides beauty and style to any room
When we selected our carpet when we were building our home, I went for a neutral beige color I thought would go with any design. It adds a warm tone and makes the room feel cozy. I love that with carpet patterns and colors, a room can totally be transformed.
Carpet provides warmth and comfort
There is nothing like sinking your feet into soft plush carpeting, especially in the colder weather. I love how comfortable and cushy it makes any room feel and especially in rooms like this where there is a lot of activity.
Carpet helps with noise reduction
We decided to add an air hockey table to our newly cleaned-out game room and it is perfect for quality family time. We love playing it and it definitely helps with keeping Lauren off of tech stuff. But it does add a lot of noise to the house that I was able to conquer with carpeting.
Not only do I love the look of the carpet in this space but it is functional too. Because it can get pretty loud and crazy up here with some serious air hockey games (LOL!), our carpet helps with noise reduction and helps absorb the sound.
This really helps when I am downstairs and the sound travels down there. It really can be amplified on the lower level so our carpeting is a great buffer.
Carpet helps with indoor air quality
By improving indoor air quality, carpet supports healthier space for living, working, and learning for everyone. New carpet is the lowest VOC-emitting flooring choice available. It acts as a passive air filter, trapping dust, pollen, and particles and then removing them from the air.
