Carpet Guide

Even though it may seem that floors such as hardwood and vinyl are more commonly found in homes, carpet still ranks number 1 as homeowner’s top choice in flooring. Carpet has a character to it that is unmatched, and a softness that is desired in many homes. New technology has given carpet the ability to stand up to more every day challenges than ever before.

Carpet is the most versatile flooring options in terms of style. You can select from several different colors, shades, patterns, and types. Virtually no design is off limits when it comes to carpeting. We carry the latest in carpet trends, so come check them out at our showroom. Watch the video below to learn about how to choose a carpet style that is right for you.

What are the Different Types of Carpet?

Before you buy a new carpet, you should take into consideration what you need in a carpet. There are waterproof options like Tigressa H2O that are perfect for homes with pets. There are also carpets that are made to be incredibly stain resistant. We even have a selection of allergy friendly carpets too, to keep your home feeling cleaner. Not only do you want your new carpet to function well in your home, but you also want it to look good, so choose something that’ll stand up to your preferred space.

We can help you find a carpet that balances both performance and style. We can help you choose the right type of carpet flooring for your home. Carpet comes in five main types: level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.

Level loop carpet has a dense, low profile, which makes it great for heavily-trafficked areas.
