Carpet offers so much

The first thing you notice while shopping for carpet is the amazing variety in appearance. Fibers offer various lengths and widths to create looks all their own, and these are paired with delightful solid colors and designs that can create the perfect look for any home. Keep in mind, too, that colors often set the mood in a space, while it can also give the room appearances of being larger or smaller, depending on the color, lighting, and use of mirrors. Your flooring associate can explain this in more detail.

Durability has always been a factor when considering carpet for your home. The good news is, thanks to new technologies and manufacturing techniques, this floor covering is lasting longer, and looking better than ever before. Some flooring makers add stain resistance to their fibers to give you the cleanest carpet possible, making sure your floors look great in between professional cleanings. It helps to keep up with regular vacuuming as well as any spot treatments that need to be done along the way. Be sure to refer to manufacturer guidelines for the best cleaning agents is stains are present.

When it comes to flooring installation, DIY is a popular pastime. However, when it comes to carpet, it’s advised you allow a professional installation team take care of the work. This will ensure a fabulous result, especially in homes where staircases or oddly shaped rooms are to be floored.


Selecting carpet for your home has changed dramatically over the last few years. Before, you just had to take style, color and texture into consideration. Now, you have many “bells and whistles” to choose from, like anti-microbial and stain resistant.
