Carpet Guide

Versatile and vibrant, carpeting gives us thousands of ways to floor: it’s no wonder so many of us prefer a soft-surface floor. When you’re walking on carpeting, comfort is ever present.  At Meelan’s Carpet One Floor & Home, we love carpet for its rich textures, patterns, and colors and our experts can help you meet your perfect match. 

When you’re tasked with creating your ideal interior environment, there’s nothing quite like carpeting. Adding texture and ambiance, carpeting is available in countless styles, guaranteeing your perfect match. Here are a few things you should know as you begin searching for your dream carpet. 

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.

Types of Carpet

Your carpet’s functional capabilities are largely determined by its fibers, or pile. Carpet pile can be manufactured from either synthetic or organic materials. We recommend opting for a pile that’s not only a good match for your décor scheme, but also one that’s compatible with your performance needs.  For example, certain types of pile are renowned for stain resistance and can handle heavy usage, while others are primarily designed for certain aesthetics. 

There are five types of carpet pile: level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.

Where to Install Carpeting

Carpeting can be installed in both residential and commercial environments, but it’s always smart to choose your carpet with care. Your home’s entryway, or perhaps a commercial conference room, might fare best with heavy-duty carpeting designed specifically for heavy foot traffic. For homes with small children or pets, consider stain-resistant carpeting for your family room, kids’ bedrooms, or living rooms. 

One general rule of thumb: most carpets aren’t equipped to handle heavy humidity or moisture, so we’d advise picking a different type of flooring for your kitchen, bathroom, or laundry room.
