Expert Advice - Choosing a Carpet Style

We help you every step of the way from when you walk into our store, and we even come to your home for free estimates and measurements. Our team of professionals will help you from product selection all the way through carpet installation.


Types of Carpet

No matter the flooring type, it is always going to be a large investment in your home or business. It is important to consider the wear and durability level you’ll need in a new carpet. Maybe you need a carpet that stands out in your home and draws attention. Or maybe a carpet that is stain resistant and waterproof if you have pets or children in the house. Your perfect carpet should balance performance and style, so it complements your home and also stays cleaner for longer.

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.

Now that you have your new carpet, the next step is keeping it clean. While we recommend weekly vacuuming, we also suggest scheduling deep cleanings every 6 to 12 months depending on how often you are on your carpet.
