Choosing The Right Carpet For My Family
Our home was built 5 years ago and when we were choosing all of our colors and flooring we decided to go with a neutral colored carpet. We knew we’d have children and wanted our house to be cozy and soft for our kids.
Fast forward 5 years and 2 children later. Our carpet was destroyed! The builders installed horrid builders grade carpet that ended up worn, stained and even worse, rough in 5 short years. Not good when you have a crawling baby. That said, it was on the TOP of my list for upgrading our home.
Here is a look at our old dirty, nasty, rough, stained carpet –
Well say bye-bye to it!
STAINMASTER has generously offered me the amazing opportunity to check out their Active Family line of carpet. STAINMASTER® Active Family™ carpets are exceptionally durable and easy to clean, making them the perfect choice for active families (like mine!). Active Family™ carpets offer three fibers to choose from:
Luxerell™ — offers a natural look, with an exceptionally soft touch
Tactesse® — provides a wide spectrum of luster and feel
Extra Body II™ — provides a rich, thicker hand
STAINMASTER® Active Family™ carpets offer a lifetime* warranty on food and beverage stains, anti-static, and soil and pet urine stains.
We chose to go with STAINMASTER Active Family because it is carpet made with families, like mine, in mind. It is designed to withstand the daily wear and tear my very active family puts it through.
If you have little kids like I do you know that much of their time is spent on the floor. Same goes for my house, the girls are always playing together on the floor and now that Loo Loo is crawling its the only place she wants to be. I want it to be clean and soft for them to crawl around on and play with their toys on.
I think our carpet has seen it all, juice stains, blood stains, dog poo stains, dog pee stains, blowout diaper stains, spit up stains. Okay, enough of my Bubba Gump-esque rant on stains. But seriously though, my family is TOUGH on carpet.
So, when choosing our new carpet I wanted to make sure it was built to withstand my families spills, pet stains and all the mishaps we can throw it’s way. The STAINMASTER Active Family promises to deliver just that on top of the fact there are wonderfully soft plush options for us to choose from!
I’m thrilled to replace our old dingy carpet with a more durable and beautiful, soft carpet from the STAINMASTER Active Family Collection!
Stay tuned for our visit to our local STAINMASTER dealer to choose our carpet, I can’t wait to share it with you!
