Carpet Guide

Carpet has an unmatched look and softness that cannot be replicated by any other material. Advanced technology in the carpet industry has given carpet the ability to resist stains, moisture, and even long-term wear. No longer fear for your carpet, and get back more time in your day. Having a beautiful carpet in your home that is also durable and functional can make your home more enjoyable to spend time in, and you’ll spend less time cleaning.

When it comes to style options, carpet is the most versatile compared to other flooring options. You can select from several different colors, shades, patterns, and types. We carry the latest in carpet trends so come check them out at our showroom.

Watch the video below to learn about how to choose a carpet style that is right for you.

Types of Carpet

Carpet types have different functions and all perform in different ways. Some carpet types are more durable and can handle daily wear and tear, while other carpets are ultra-plush and soft to the touch. We carry several different carpet types and are bound to have a carpet that is perfect for your home. We also carry tough stain resistant and even waterproof carpets such as Tigressa H2O.

Carpet comes in five main types: level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.

Level loop carpet has a dense, low profile, which makes it great for heavily-trafficked areas.

Patterned carpet is made of loops and cut fibers of varying heights, resulting in unique patterns.
