Soft new carpet installation in a Portland, OR home

Should you paint a room before or after installing carpet?

New flooring installation and a fresh new coat of paint are often part of any remodeling project. If that?s where you currently find yourself, you might be wondering if you should paint a room before or after installing carpet.

The answer is that you should paint before installing a brand new carpet flooring. We?re going to take a few minutes to tell you why, so follow along.

Carpet installation facts you should know

Carpet is created with various fibers, including nylon, polyester, wool, olefin, and more. Each of these fibers has its own set of characteristics and advantages, but none of them resist paint stains.

Adding your new paint before the installation is an excellent choice because if any drips miss the drop cloth, they will be covered over once your floors are installed. Then, no one knows about the spills, and you?re left with the gorgeous floor covering you always wanted.

Afterward, you?ll be left to enjoy the solid color or pattern you chose to best compliment your d?cor style and the durability that came as an added extra. You?ll also enjoy the plush, comfort underfoot, especially if you have children or toddlers in the home.
