10 Tips for Choosing New Carpet:
1. Consider the Space:
First, you should consider the space that you will use carpet for the flooring. You need to know if the area is a high or low traffic zone because high traffic areas need certain types of carpet in them. You need a carpet that won’t mat over time or show tracks in them. Trackless carpets are perfect for high traffic areas, such as a living room or dining room. Also, in high traffic areas or rooms where there will be a lot of kids or pets, you should have a carpet that is stain resistant and easy to clean. We have many carpets that will work well in high traffic areas.
Color is a big part of every part of interior design. You need to pick just the right color of carpet for your home, and make sure to pick something that will go with the other design colors you use in the home so you won’t have to change the carpet so often. Choosing the right color of carpet is fun to do after you figure out what kind of color will work best. First you have to decide if you want the carpet to make a bold statement or if you want something more neutral that will blend. This year grey carpet is really in style, and it is considered one of the new neutrals. However, you can pick any color you want, whether that color be black, pink, sage, light blue, or even taupe. It’s all up to you. Also, if you don’t want a solid color carpet then there are many carpets with different flecks of color in them, which help hide dirt better than single-color carpet. Fleck colored carpets also add a nice visual internet without being too bold of a color. We have many great colors of carpets to choose from.
3. Style and Texture:
There are many different styles and textures of carpet to choose from, and the best way to figure out what you like best is to go to a store and feel the different carpets. Every different style has their own pros and cons, so you really have to figure out for yourself what feels more comfortable for you. Also, if you find a carpet that you like, we can always send carpet samples so you can see and feel the carpet in person before placing an order.
Nobody ever plans to spill or drop anything onto their carpet, but accidents and messes happen. Having a carpet that is easy to clean and that has a stain and soil resistance is essential for every home. We have many great carpets from the top manufacturers that feature stain and soil protection systems. We also have all of the new SmartStrand Forever Clean carpets from Mohawk, that are very easy to clean.
Make sure that the carpet you buy is CRI Green Label Plus certified, which means that the carpet has very low emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds. Buying a carpet that is Green Label Plus certified means that you are buying a carpet that is safe for your home. You won’t have to worry about harmful fumes leaving the carpet and bothering you or your family. We have many Green Label Plus certified carpets, and you can tell which product is Green Label Plus certified because the products will have an icon on the product page.
When picking out a carpet, pile height and density are also important to keep in mind. I would recommend getting a sample of the carpet you like, and then gently bend it so you can see if you see any of the carpet backing. If you barely see the carpet backing or if you don’t see it at all, then the carpet will be a great choice for your home.
There are many different carpet fibers to choose from. We have some great solution dyed nylon and polyester carpets that will keep the color for years, since the color is all the way through the fibers. SmartStrand carpet is also a great option because most of their carpets feature the SmartStrand Forever Clean fiber that is easy to clean and it doesn’t lose its color. Many of our carpet fibers have web pages dedicated to them that will give you more details about the fibers and how they work.
8. Carpet Pad:
We have many great carpet pads to choose from. Most carpets only need a 7/16 carpet pad, either a 6lb, 8lb, or 10lb. Our most popular pads are the 7/16 8lb carpet pad, and our two moisture barrier pads. The moisture barrier pads help protect the sub-floor, and they also trap the water on top of the barrier so you have more time to clean up the spill before it really tries to soak deep into the carpet.

Always check the warranties on the carpet that you want to buy. We include all of the warranty information on our product pages. Just scroll down the specific carpet product page until you see a warranty tab, click the tab, and there you will find a list of warranties and a link to show you a more detailed warranty description.
Be sure to budget ahead of time for the carpet, carpet pad, installation, and if you need the installers to move any of the furniture or not. The best part about carpet is that you can get a gorgeous carpet and a great quality pad at a reasonable price. We have many carpets that will fit any budget.

In the kitchen, the FiberFloor was used to create a beautiful and practical design. The flooring is designed with woven fiberglass, foam, and tough resilient wear layers that stand up to water, moisture, scuffs, scratches, and indentations. Laminate flooring was used in the living room, hallway, and one of the bedrooms. The laminate is designed and engineered with 100% premium hardwood (cherry and oak). Also, the laminate is made for easy installation and it resists indentation. Luxury vinyl tile from Tarkett was used in the bathrooms and laundry room. The 16″ x 16″ tiles were installed with grouting to give the rooms an authentic tile aesthetic.
All of the flooring used in the home are from the same color family, so the flooring flows seamlessly from room to room. All of these beautiful floors provide beauty and durability, and you can have any of these floors in your home as well.
