Carpet for Apartments

Many apartments have carpeting, and it can be an excellent option for your complex. Like any flooring material, however, there are pros and cons to using carpet or carpet tiles in your apartments. It’s crucial to understand the difference between the two so you can make the right decision for your needs:

  • Carpets: Wall-to-wall carpets are standard and installed over the subfloor or substrate floor. These carpets can be more expensive to install because they can be complicated and create waste. Traditional carpets provide a seamless flooring appearance.
  • Carpet tiles: Carpet tiles are carpet squares with a backing that the installer mounts to the subfloor to cover the space. Their size means the installer cuts less, creating less waste. Carpet tiles are faster to install than wall-to-wall carpet, though you may be able to see the seams between the tiles.

Many apartment complexes have carpets because they are softer on the feet and come in many styles and colors. Carpet can be excellent for young children playing on the floor and acts as a sound barrier to reduce noise transferred between apartments. Remember that renter preferences can vary. Some individuals like carpets, while others prefer the modern look and feel of hard flooring.

Vinyl Flooring for Apartments

Highly durable and easy to clean, vinyl can work well for those looking for a budget-friendly option. It’s also water-resistant, making it great for people with pets and children. Spills are easy to wipe away, and vinyl can complement many decorative styles.

Apartment vinyl flooring should be used for units at lower price points. Note that this material may be less appealing to potential tenants focused on sustainability. However, luxury vinyl flooring options provide additional benefits, including durable topcoats and waterproofing.

Best Flooring for Apartments

At Metro Flooring Contractors, we know there is no one-size-fits-all approach to flooring. The best option for your apartment complex will depend on many things, including location and how much flooring you’re replacing.

With that said, one of the top solutions is to use a combination of carpet and vinyl. For example, many people expect carpets in bedrooms and living rooms but hard flooring in kitchens or dining areas.
