Understanding the Basics; Types and Materials of Carpets:

100% Wool Carpet: Widely regarded as the top-notch choice for carpets wool offers natural softness and remarkable durability. Wool carpets are a good choice for living rooms or luxurious master bedrooms.

·   Advantages; material, lasting performance, excellent fire resistance. Wool is extremely durable carpet and can last 50 years or more with the right maintenance. Disadvantages; Can be pricey. May require care to prevent staining. 

100% Polyester Carpet: An option known for its ability to resist stains and water damage polyester carpets are often more budget friendly. They work well in children’s rooms or basements where spills are likely to occur.

·    Advantages; resistant to stains affordable pricing options available with a variety of color choices. Disadvantages; not nearly as durable, as some alternatives.  In fact, we do very few 100% polyester installations. While it is affordable and there are carpet blends that do a better job and are not that much more expensive. However, if you have a specific budget in mind and don’t want to break the bank, polyester carpet is a great option.

Synthetic Carpet Blends: Combining synthetic fibers carpet blends aim to provide the best of both worlds. They are versatile. Can be used in guest rooms or office spaces.

·       Advantages; balanced features, cost effective. Synthetic bends are a good option if you plan to replace old carpet. It is affordable, durable, and comes in many patterns that’ll give your room the style you are looking for.

·       Disadvantages; durability may vary depending on the blend. It’s important to note that not all carpets or features are the same. While some synthetic carpets are durable, other kinds are much less durable and will look good initially but over time will loose its durability.

The Appearance and Texture; Pile Heights and Traffic

High Pile Carpet: plush pile carpets like shag are perfect for bedrooms or lounges where comfort is a priority.

·       Advantages; underfoot comfort and higher visual and aesthetic interest.  Particularly in bedrooms and family rooms.  High pile offers a more inviting feel. Disadvantages; Can trap dirt easily not recommended for high traffic areas. High pile carpets provide a deep, cozy, textured feel to any bedroom but is prone to trapping dirt and debris. We encourage home owners with small children or pets to avoid high pile carpets. Cleaning up messes can be frustrating with high pile carpets and its never really clean. Nevertheless, some homeowners and families love the look and feel of a high pile carpet and don’t mind the few draw backs they come with.

Low Pile Carpet: suitable for areas such as hallways or busy living rooms.

Advantages; Durable with dirt accumulation. Low pile carpets are super easy to keep clean and even the biggest messes are no match for these durable carpets.

Disadvantages; low pile isn’t as cosy or “cushiony” compared to high pile options. This can sometimes be offset by choosing the right carpet pad. Or in some cases doing a double carpet pad to make the carpet EXTRA soft and welcoming.

Alternative Flooring Options

Consider exploring options if wall, to wall carpet doesn’t appeal to you. Luxury vinyl plank flooring offer timeless elegance and practical beauty. These choices are especially suitable for areas like kitchens or bathrooms where moisture’s a concern. To add warmth and style to living room without committing to carpet consider layering with rugs.
