• Selecting Carpet

  • Nothing looks like it, feels like it or performs like it! Carpet is a key decorative and functional element in a home. Because carpet is the foundation of decorating, it can provide simplicity and casualness for softness and livability or it can provide excitement with vibrant color and heavier textures for making a decorating "statement." Carpet can be one of the easiest ways to personalize an environment - its color can be a neutral foundation "in the background" or it can be a vibrant focal point.

    So, where do you start? One of the first options to consider is what mood you want to create and how the room will be used.
    Are you looking for a formal style or casual? Does the room have high foot traffic? Let’s start with construction and texture because that affects how the carpet will appear. Texture refers to the surface appearance of the carpet. Texture is created by the size of the yarns, the twist of the yarns, and the surface structure of the finished carpet. Some textures create patterns. Well constructed carpet is important for durability. In fact, construction has as much or more influence on performance than the fibers or other materials that make up the carpet.
    Have you ever walked on carpet and marveled at how soft and resilient it felt? That probably has as much to do with the quality of the pad than the actual carpet.
    Good padding protects your carpet, makes it last longer and feel better. It also acts as a shock absorber and protects carpet from the wear and tear of heavy traffic.
