Carpet Guide

Carpet continues to reign as a flooring favorite for both home and business owners. With its comfort, warmth, and endless possibilities, carpeting brings ongoing style, softness, and durability. At Sunflower Carpet One Floor & Home we can help you navigate the wide world of carpeting, and simplify the process of selecting carpet that’s the perfect fit for your vision and lifestyle.

Whether you’re seeking a carpet that can coexist with your allergies, or a carpet that can stand up to a daily onslaught of pet paws and rambling toddlers, we’ve got the carpeting for you- and in your favorite color. Let’s learn a little more about this comfortable, classical way to floor.

Expert Advice - Choosing a Carpet Style

Jim Aaron, our VP of Merchandising for Carpet One Floor & Home, shares some information on the different carpet styles that are available.

What Are the Different Types of Carpet?

The perfect carpeting means different things to different homeowners: that’s why it’s important for you to carefully consider your intended space. Is your room subject to constant foot traffic? Will this carpet be installed in busy hallway, or a quiet dining area that’s only used occasionally? Is the room’s overall style casual, or more formal? Do you anticipate frequent “accidents” that could result in stains (be honest, here!)

Selecting the correct carpet fiber is a vital step in ensuring equal balance between looks and performance capabilities. Carpet fiber is classified in five major groups: level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.

Where Can Carpet Be Installed?

Carpeting can add instant warmth, texture, and comfort to the places where we love to relax most: bedrooms, dens, and living rooms. For children’s rooms, playrooms, hallways, and stairs, a stain-resistant variety of carpet is a smarter option. For commercial spaces, and other heavy traffic zones, one might consider a carpet type that’s designed with ultimate durability in mind. With so many options to consider, there are carpet varieties fit for nearly every setting. However, as a rule of thumb, carpeting should be avoided in kitchens, bathrooms, and other settings prone to constant moisture.
