When it comes to carpeting, there’s always something new and exciting right around the corner. While it’s wonderful to have so many choices, narrowing down your options can sometimes prove baffling. A close and careful inventory of your family’s activities, lifestyle, and budget will help you make the best decisions.
Carpet fibers, which we often refer to as “pile,” are the threads that hold your carpeting together and play a major role in how your new rug will look, feel, wear, and perform. Generally, the five major types of carpet pile you’ll encounter in our store are level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush. Each one of these has its own unique traits and benefits. For example, check out wool carpet.
Nylon, which is a synthetic fiber, is a terrific all-around carpeting option that’s prized for its resilience and softness. Nylon pile is offered up in a world of colors and styles.
Polyester, yet another popular synthetic pile, looks and feels quite similar to nylon. Polyester carpeting tends to be a lot more affordable than nylon, but thanks to recent manufacturing advances, it’s no longer considered inferior in terms of durability.
Olefin/polypropylene is a synthetic carpet pile that’s renowned for its vivid color options. Most olefin carpets feature a durable, Berber-style weave that’s extremely resilient, making this a popular commercial selection.
Triexta is a heavier type of synthetic pile that’s one of the most stain-resistant products available. Triexta is often recommended for homes with little kids or roving pets for this very reason.
Wool, a beloved natural pile, can represent a larger investment but as time passes, many homeowners feel it’s a very worthy one. Wool carpeting is colorful, exceptionally warm, and very durable. It’s naturally resistant to moisture and odors.
Wool is one of the most popular fibers used in the construction of area rugs and wall-to-wall carpeting today. Wool is a natural carpet fiber that can be easily dyed, leaving options for endless looks. It is also one of the ultimate sustainable fibers. Wool is a durable carpet fiber due to its natural crimp and elasticity which allows it to endure constant wear and compression. This means that wool is resistant to crushing and matting, retaining its appearance for longer. Wool is even naturally energy efficient. It traps air between its fibers making it a great insulator for colder regions. Wool is a hypoallergenic fiber, which means it contributes to a healthier living environment. Wool carpets naturally eliminate pollutants and allergens and can trap dust and allergens that aggravate allergies. It’s also soil-resistant, stain-resistant, and flame-resistant.
Find a floor that elevates your home and promotes a worry-free lifestyle with stain-resistant carpet flooring. While no carpet is completely stain-proof, today’s stain-resistant technology has come a long way. It provides a protective barrier that stops spills from sinking into the carpet fibers and permanently pigmenting them. Our stain-resistant carpet options are also easy to clean, fast-drying, and odor-resistant. With some options, like Innovia Xtreme Clean, you can wipe up spills with just water.
Stain resistant carpets may have inherent spill fighting abilities. For instance, polyester and triexta carpets tend to repel water-based stains. Other fibers, like nylon, are not particularly great at fighting stains. However, carpet manufacturers can apply a stain treatment that enhances blemish-resistance so that your new floor stays looking beautiful. This treatment may coat the surface of the floor, or it can be built into the fibers themselves. Built-in stain treatments resist wearing off over time. No matter what type of stain technology your carpet employs, it’s important to clean up spills as soon as you can. You should also avoid rubbing the stain to remove it. Instead, gently dab it to avoid pushing the spill deeper into the fibers.
In addition to stain fighting technology, our professional flooring experts can walk you through the impressive inventory of carpet colors, textures, and patterns that we have. We’ll show you which designs are better at hiding pet fur, dirt, debris, and blemishes between cleanings. For instance, multi-tonal carpets help camouflage spots. Meanwhile, low-pile carpets tend to dry faster. We also have waterproof carpets, which have an industrial backing that blocks spills from damaging your carpet pad and subfloor.
Carpeting should be avoided in your bathroom or kitchen, but there are thousands of options for nearly every other type of interior space. Resilient carpeting made from synthetic fibers are proven performers in the commercial sector, and are equally impressive in your home if you have a large family, resident pets, or the tendency to host large family gatherings. For the master bedroom, consider something more plush, adding texture, comfort, and incredible cushion. This is but the beginning.
Carpet flooring comes in many styles and designs. Certain trends have remained in style for years, not so much because they stand out aesthetically, but because they work in almost every situation. The color of carpeting that is chosen for a room will most often be determined by the room’s use. Family oriented rooms will have carpet that is neutral and easy to match to several different accent colors. A neutral base color will go with almost any other color or tint, balancing a room and making it visually appealing. Tans, browns, grays and different variations of white can be used as a backdrop for almost any color scheme. Patterned carpeting is extremely popular because of its ability to hide dirt. The pattern of a carpet can be used to establish the rest of the room's decor. Variations of the colors in the carpeting can be used as accents throughout the room, such as pillow, picture frames and throw rugs. Want help choosing a new carpet design?

Maintaining your carpet properly is a way to reduce carpet fading and damage through the years, extending the life of your carpet regardless of the style and type you have in your home. Blocking out natural sunlight from any areas of the home that have carpet is ideal to keep it from fading out too soon, especially in rooms that are not as heavy in traffic. Draw blinds when gone during the day or during peak hours when areas of your home receive the most sunlight. Use sunlight protectors on windows within rooms of your home that receive the most light to minimize the damage done to your carpet over time. Cleaning up spills as quickly as possible is also key to preventing a fade spot or permanent stain on your floor.
