We carry all kinds of flooring?but, for this post, we'll focus on the carpet.

Getting the most from your budget

When it comes to quality, don?t automatically assume that thicker, or even the most expensive, is better.?

What you want to look at is density; that is, how closely the fibers are tufted together.? You don?t want to see a lot of white space when you bend a carpet sample card backward!

Also know that some fibers, such as Olefin, perform better depending upon carpet style.? While this economical fiber isn?t the most durable, it becomes stronger when used in the Berber style.

Where do you plan to install the carpet?

Room is a big factor for many reasons:

  • If it?s in a space with direct sun and heat, you should also think about window coverings to protect it.
  • The room will help you decide on the pile. Pile means whether it?s high and plush, like a shag or frieze, or low, like a Berber.
  • Does it get a lot of heavy foot traffic?? For instance, for hallways, you may need something with extra strength and stain resistance, especially if you have kids or pets.

Is your living room used only for gatherings or is it the center of family activity?? If it?s the latter, you?ll need something with both stain and spill resistance and durability because it?ll get a lot of use and abuse.

  • Not every style works for every room because they all have different requirements and priorities. For example, you probably want a high pile, plush for the bedroom, but that can be unsafe for the stairs.
