Here are three tips for choosing carpet flooring

Carpeting remains the #1 choice of homeowners today. It adds beauty to a home, softness underfoot, and comes with countless benefits.

Everyone wants a rug that looks great and performs well for a long time. For some, easy care is also a priority.
There are many colors, patterns, and styles from which to choose. These three tips will make it easier to narrow down your choice.


Of course, you know if your family is large or small or if you have kids or pets. However, you may not understand that it affects your choice of a soft surface floor covering.

Nylon rugs are ultra-tough and can stand up to even the highest level of foot traffic. Polyester ones are best for moderately heavy foot trafficked rooms with smaller families.

If you're a person who would rather not spend a lot of time cleaning, a low pile rug might be for you. They're easier to keep clean and more durable, so you often see them in offices.

Tell the flooring experts in our carpet store how you plan to use the rug. Then, we will guide you to the right one.

Consider quality–and compare correctly

Most rugs have several different quality levels. Always buy the best your wallet will allow.

When comparing, be sure the rugs are of equal quality. Otherwise, the results will be inaccurate.

Think about construction

This determines the carpeting style and texture. Some work better for some installations than others.
