Match Your Carpet to Your Personality Type
When it’s time to choose the right carpet for your home, try to choose a carpet that fits your personality type. The type of personality you have often determines the type of lifestyle you lead at home. In turn, the lifestyle you lead at home often helps you determine the best carpet for your space. Choose the personality profile that fits you best, and find the right carpet for you.
Here is my personal spin on what carpets I feel best fit somewhat stereotyped personalties. Have fun reading!
Are you checking your reflection on the way out to the next cocktail party? Soon it’ll be your turn to host, and you’ll want a carpet that will stand up to traffic from minglers and wallflowers alike. Choose a sturdy that can handle high heels and high traffic without wearing down. A good choice may be stain-resistant nylon carpets in darker colors to camouflage spilled wine, or be prepared to institute a clear cocktails only rule.
The pitter-patter of little feet will be blessedly muffled by a carpeted floor, but that doesn’t mean your worries are over. Shop around for carpets that are stain-resistant and designed for high-traffic areas. Kids’ rooms are also a good place to consider large, room-spanning area rugs. You can find area rugs with kid-friendly designs like cartoon characters, and once they’re past the cartoons and spilling everything stage, their room will still have a great stain-free carpet underneath.
If your home activities include channel surfing, reading under the lamp, and reveling in the glorious quiet, then you can have your choice of carpeting. You may want to choose a nice cushiony pile great for sinking your toes into during long days of reading and TV watching. Reading rooms look great with lighter carpets to pick up the sunlight, and a deeper-colored carpet in a den can bring a cozy feel.
So go ahead! Get creative and match your carpet to your personality type!
