Where Can Carpet Be Installed?

Our stain, wear and fade resistant carpets can be installed in places around your home that experience a lot of traffic like stairs, hallways, and even children’s playrooms and basements. The most common places carpet is installed include bedrooms, living rooms, and dens. If you have pets or young children in your household, you should consider waterproof carpeting. Waterproof carpets can be installed anywhere in your home, and are perfect for basements.


Types of Carpet

In our showroom you will find a wide variety of carpet types and styles to choose. Carpet is made of fibers which then get twisted into piles. The different fibers include synthetic options like nylon, polyester, triexta, and olefin. We also offer natural fibers like wool, which is allergy friendly and easy to care for. The pile of the carpet can impact how it will look and perform in your home. You can choose from tightly twisted piles, dense piles, or loose piles. Our selection of carpet extends to include waterproof options, pet friendly options, as well as stain resistant options.

The most important thing you need to do is choose the right type of carpet. There are five main types: level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.
