Where Can Carpet Be Installed?

Carpet is a common choice for areas in the home where you spend a lot of time relaxing, like in bedrooms, living rooms, and dens. Our stain, wear and fade resistant carpets can be installed in places around your home that experience a lot of traffic like stairs and hallways. We also have durable carpeting that can be installed throughout your home and can handle children and pet accidents. As a reminder, carpet should be installed in dry, cool places around the home and not in kitchens or bathrooms.

We'll help you sort through the different carpet options, compare important features and styles, and we'll even come to you for an in-home consultation. Our team of professionals will help you from product selection all the way through carpet installation.


What Are the Types of Carpet?

Selecting a new carpet for your home or office is an important decision and investment. It is important to consider the wear and durability level you’ll need in a new carpet. Maybe you’ll need a waterproof carpet that can withstand accidental spills. Or maybe you need a carpet that can handle pet accidents. The perfect carpet should balance performance and style, something that complements your décor and suit your needs. You definitely want to make sure to choose a carpet that will look good and last long in your preferred setting.

How do you find the right balance between performance and style? The most important thing you need to do is to choose the right type of carpet. There are five main types: level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.
