But before you start planning, here are some important things you need to know about carpet.


Best Types of Carpet

Which carpet type will work best in your home or business?


For the best possible results, your first step should be to take a close, careful survey of your space. The fibers in your carpet, also known as “carpet pile,” will determine how your new rug will function daily.


Carpet pile can be either natural or synthetic. Among the most popular types of pile are wool, nylon, polyester, and olefin. These fibers can be woven into various styles, such as level-loop, loop, and shag.


  • Nylon, a synthetic type of fiber, is wonderful all-around carpet. Prized for its sturdy softness, nylon carpet comes in a wide range of colors and styles.


  • Polyester, another popular type of synthetic pile, looks and feels like nylon carpet. Polyester carpet is usually a lot more affordable than nylon. Today’s polyester carpets are more durable than they used to be.


  • Olefin is a synthetic pile that’s prized for its bright, vivid colors. Most olefin rugs are woven into a Berber-style carpet, which is a terrific choice for highly trafficked areas.


  • Triexta is a heavy-duty synthetic pile that’s especially tough on stains and wear. Triexta carpet is a favorite of parents and pet-lovers due to its endurance.


  • Wool, the world’s most beloved natural carpet fiber, is incredibly soft and earth friendly. It’s naturally resistant to stains, moisture, and odors while warming your room . Colorful wool carpets can also improve the air quality in your home.



Your carpet’s construction likewise plays a key role in the way your new rug will wear over time.



  • Cut-pile carpet is woven into loops, with its fibers then trimmed into varying lengths. This process results in a dense, textured carpet.


  • Loop-pile carpet is woven in a similar fashion, but its looped endings are left as is. This process results in a rug that’s smooth and uniform in appearance.


  • Cut-loop carpet is a combination of both cut-pile and loop pile.


Can I Use Carpet On My Stairs?

YES! Carpet is perfect for your everyday ups and downs.


Since staircases are the site of constant activity, it’s important for you to consider safety as well as style. We’re your local source for safer carpet stair runners. Our collection of carpet and carpet remnants make for many, many ways to customize your stairways.


Almost any product in our carpet collection can be installed on your stairways.


We’ll work with you to customize your stair runners, working with a wide range of patterns, textures, and colors.


Having stair runners is a very wise decision, as more of us find ourselves living in multi-generation households.


Left uncovered, wooden floors can be dangerous on rainy or snowy days, but a carpet stair runner adds peace of mind!


Where Can I Install Carpet?

Carpet isn’t compatible with bathroom or kitchen settings but can be enjoyed almost anywhere else.


Choose with care. For instance, moisture-resistant synthetic carpets are best for large families. Stain-resistant carpet is a smart addition for households with pets. There are even commercial-grade carpets designed to take you throughout the workday. Our professional carpet experts can guide you towards smarter choices.


What Should I Expect From My Carpet Installation?

Carpet installation is complicated, so we recommend relying on professional installers.


Nonetheless, we can give you a general idea of how carpet installation works:


  • We’ll measure your room.
  • We’ll remove all old flooring.
  • Your subfloor will be cleaned and leveled to perfection.
  • Tackless strips will be installed around the walls to help attach your rug to your subfloor.
  • Carpet padding will then be installed.
  • Your new carpet will be laid over your padding.
  • Seams will be hidden in the surface.
  • We’ll attach your carpet to the strips, stretching it so it stays smooth and flat.
