The cozy feel of carpet makes it a living room classic. Carpet acts as a natural insulator, making your living room feel warm, even when St. Paul falls into winter. When thinking about the right carpet style for your living room, consider how you use your living room. If it is a place solely for rest and relaxation, an elegant plush carpet may be best for you. Plush carpet will make your living room exude comfort. Your calm lifestyle will mean easy plush carpet maintenance. If you have rambunctious children and enthusiastic pets, consider a frieze carpet. Its flexible fibers will hold up well against the everyday wear and tear of your active St. Paul family.

Bamboo can be harvested every three to five years, meaning it is a very sustainable flooring option.

Many St. Paul homeowners debate whether to install hardwood or laminate floors. In truth, flooring choice is dependent on a number of factors.
