Carpet is a one-of-a-kind type of flooring. No other flooring is soft, luxurious, and also stylish. Whether you want carpet for a playroom, bedroom, or busy hallway, carpet can bring coziness to your space. With improvements in carpet technology, carpet today can be stain resistant, pet-proof, and even waterproof.

Different Carpet Types
While you may tend to focus more on what carpet looks like, it’s also crucial to think about what features it has. If your home has a high amount of activity and children, you will want to invest in the stain-resistant carpet. If you have any pets, it’s a good idea to consider pet-proof carpet, because accidents can happen. The perfect carpet for your home is one that balances these features with the lifestyle in your home, as well as one that will upgrade your home design. One of the first factors to consider is the type of fiber your new carpet is made of.
Nylon is a synthetic type of pile that’s extremely popular for many reasons. Seriously soft and very, very resilient, nylon comes in many different styles, patterns, and colors. It’s one of the most durable carpets around.
Polyester is another type of synthetic pile that looks and feels a lot like nylon, but tends to be much more affordable. Although polyester products were once considered inferior to nylon, new manufacturing innovations have given us many dense, durable polyester carpets.
Olefin is a synthetic pile that’s very well known for its incredible colors. Vibrant and very sturdy, olefin carpeting is often woven into Berber style products.
Triexta is a heavy-duty synthetic pile that works exceptionally well in spaces that are frequently visited by large crowds, pets, and small kids. It is very resistant to stains and is easy to keep up with.
Wool is a natural carpet pile that is very well insulating, incredibly soft, and enduring in its colors. It naturally resists odors and moisture and can last for many years if properly managed.
While no product is completely stain-proof, modern innovation has made big strides in this department. In fact, we have carpet collections that can be cleaned with just water if you spill something on them. We even have waterproof carpets that will keep your carpet pad and subfloor dry and clean from messes and pet accidents.
While some carpets are made using naturally stain-resistant fibers, such as polyester, triexta, and olefin, many carpet companies will also use stain-treatments. These treatments may coat the surface of the carpet, or be built into the fibers. Either way, this technology blocks spills from sinking into the carpet fiber and causing permanent stains. Some treatments are specially designed not to wear off over time, so you’ll have longer lasting protection.
It’s important to clean up spills as soon as they occur or you find them in order to get the best results. Additionally, we have many different carpet styles that will help camouflage spills, dirt, and pet hair between cleanings. For instance, multi-tonal carpets and specific patterns will serve this purpose.
Many homeowners try to avoid carpet in their homes when they have pets. Little do they know that they can have both! Pet-friendly carpet options are perfect for homeowners who want the comfort of carpet but need a floor that can handle pet messes. A pet-friendly feature benefits such as stain resistance, easy maintenance, and low pile styles. Low pile styles make the carpets easier to clean and they don’t trap as much fur and reduces the chances of your pet’s nails getting caught and causing runs. Our selection of pet-friendly carpets includes everything you wish you could have in a carpet and then some!
With added warmth for any space, carpet is most common in bedrooms, living rooms, and formal dens. These areas are perfect for carpet, as they are comfortable spaces where people like to relax. Carpet can also be installed in other areas, as long as it is stain resistant or pet-proof.
Areas like hallways, stairs, and finished basements are prime examples of rooms where carpet is recommended; as long as it carries features that will withstand the amount of traffic it is exposed to.
Whatever you intend to purchase, our carpet selection is wide enough for you to find something you adore. Our selection includes name brand carpets you love and exclusive brands like Tigressá® and Relax it’s… Lees®. We invite you to our showroom to see all of the available options.
