Carpet Types


Which carpet is right for you? Before you leap into new carpet, your first step is taking a thorough overview of your intended space and its activity levels. Carpet pile, a common term for the fibers in your carpet, determine your new floor’s abilities and appearance. Carpet pile is either synthetic or naturally derived.

While there are diverse types of carpet out there, most can be broken down into two distinct styles: loop pile and cut pile. Loop pile is considered the hardier style of carpet. It goes perfect in children's rooms, hallways, and other heavily traffic zones. Cut pile is softer and more comfortable, perfect for spaces where you are looking to enhance a style.

Of course, within these styles there are varied materials to choose from. There is nylon, polyester, olefin, wool, and others. Each type of material has its advantages. For instance, nylon is the most durable type of carpet available, comes in a variety of colors, and is inexpensive. Wool carpet is beautiful, but a bit more expensive and harder to clean.

One of the most difficult choices for customers is choosing a carpet color they will like for years. The two popular trends contrast flooring textures or share similar tones throughout the home. Whether you’re seeking a new carpet pattern or trying to refresh your current carpet style, we can help find the perfect fit for your style and lifestyle.

No matter what type of carpet you choose, remember that you will be designing a room around it. Neutral tones, such as a white, beige, or grey, are easier to design around, especially when you try to find matching paints. They also give you the ability to be flexible with the rest of the room.

Dark colors are great for children's rooms and walkways because they do not show as much if something gets spilled on them. They are also easier to clean. Wild colors can be fun to pick as well. Sometimes you want a room to have extra pizzazz, and an expressive color can bring out a room's eccentricities. No matter what kind of flooring you decide to go with, pick something that you think will be long lasting and worth the price.

Thanks to new printing technology, carpet patterns are becoming more intricate. The updated design features are personalizing home settings and matching residential lifestyles. Modern loop and cut configurations give the carpet flooring surface a sculptured effect. This effect helps to keep your eyes moving over the carpet and disguises soiling until you can vacuum.

When choosing a new carpet., consider how often you are in that space. Patterned designs create a nice focal point in the room, no longer hiding in the background. Carpet weaving machines have introduced affordable methods to create colorful patterns. Carpet inventories are stocked with harmonizing designs to fit traditional, modern, and contemporary lifestyles.

Carpet Installation


Modern carpet is meant to be enjoyed in a wide range of interior settings. Choose your carpet selectively. Kitchens and bathrooms are considered off-limits for carpet floors, but carpet can be used anywhere else if chosen with care. A stain-resistant, moisture-resistant product is wise if you have pets in the house or little kids. Sturdy, Berber-style weaves are recommended for high-traffic zones like your hallways or stairs.
