Why choose carpet?

  • There are many benefits to using carpeting, including:
  • Comfort - Nothing beats the softness of carpet flooring.
  • Durability - Quality carpets with the right care can last for many years.
  • Variety - With its large selection of colors, textures and patterns, carpeting can be tailored to complement any decor.
  • Safety - As a non-slick surface, carpet flooring puts safety first.
  • Noise reduction - Carpet reduces echoes and noise to lower levels of the home.
  • Choosing the right carpet

Carpeting comes in many varieties. Consider these factors as you shop for carpet flooring:

  • Material. The most common carpeting is made of nylon. It's comfortable, durable, and stain resistant. Other options include wool, polyester, and olefin, each with unique characteristics.
  • Color and style: Dark colored plush carpet can add intimacy to a room, but they can also show every piece of lint attracted to the floor. Lighter colors can brighten a room, but can also soil easily. From berber to plush, the color and style combinations of carpet flooring seem endless.
  • Quality: Like most investments for your home or office, carpet flooring comes in a variety of grades - and you often get what you pay for. Lower cost carpets may need to be replaced sooner, so the overall investment won't pay off.

Many Colors and Styles to Choose From

There are many styles of carpeting to choose from: indoor/outdoor carpet, hand carved/artistic carpets, commercial (tufted), commercial printed carpet, commercial cut pile (pattern), custom carpet, and more. Below are some types of carpet you may have not considered:

  • Pet Friendly Carpet: Living with dogs, cats, and parrots can be a mess – especially when it comes to keeping carpet clean and smelling fresh. Equipped with built-in stain, spill and odor protection technology, pet-friendly carpet was designed with to withstand a slew of stains, spills, accidents, and scratches. When searching for pet friendly carpeting choose one that will hide pet accidents and has a good carpet warranty.
  • Carpet Tiles: Carpet squares are also available, typically 20 inches square. The peel and stick carpet tiles are affixed using a special pressure-sensitive glue, which holds them into place while allowing easy removal
  • Outdoor Carpet: There’s no reason to not have carpet on your outdoor patio. Indoor outdoor carpet is weather-resistant, fade-resistant, mildew and mold resistant, and water-resistant. It’s made to withstand the harsh elements of nature.
  • Berber Carpet: Tufted berber carpet is distinguished by its loop pile construction that gives it an appearance similar to the distinct knot of traditionally woven berber carpets. Modern berber carpet is made from a wide variety of materials, nylon, olefin, and wool are the most frequently used materials.
  • Carpet Runners: Carpet runners for stairs not only add style to an otherwise bland space, but it also provides safety. Exposed wood treads are beautiful but they can be slippery and dangerous. Other benefits of stair runner carpet include increased comfort and better noise absorption than a hard surface. Don't skimp, purchase the highest quality and highest durability nylon or wool stair carpet you can afford.
