Learn About Carpet

Carpet continues to be the most popular flooring option in residential and commercial settings. Why is carpet so popular? For one thing, it offers comfort that is unmatched. Plus, most modern-day carpets offer premium stain and wear resistant technologies meaning they can stand up to everyday challenges in your home. Weyburn Carpet One Floor & Home is your local source for all things carpet flooring.

Carpet, especially compared to other flooring options, is one of the most stylish options of flooring available because of its wide range. There are so many different colours, shades, and patterns from which to choose, so no design is considered off limits when you choose carpet. We even use a unique system to help you narrow down your carpet selection based on lifestyle and personal style preferences.

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

Purchasing a new carpet for your home is more than just about what colour you want. You need to take into consideration how you use the space daily to help you determine the type of carpet you will need in your home. Do you need a waterproof carpet that can handle spills and stains? Maybe you need a commercial carpet that will stand up to heavy foot traffic? At the same time, you need to balance performance with style, as your new carpet should fit perfectly into your overall design. You definitely want to make sure to choose a carpet that will look good and last long in your preferred setting.

How do you find the right balance between performance and style? The most important thing you need to do is choose the right type of carpet. There are five main types: level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.

Types of Carpet Fibres

Carpets piles are fibres that are twisted, and these fibres can come from synthetic or natural materials. Fibres play an important role in carpet and can influence design, durability, and stain resistance. Synthetic fibres include nylon, polyester, olefin, and triexta. Nylon is a popular carpet option because it is durable, long-lasting, and can be treated to be stain-resistant. We also offer carpets made with natural fibres, including wool. Wool is also naturally hypoallergenic, resistant to staining, and can also resist show from wear.

Pet-Friendly Carpet

We know your pets are a part of your family, so we offer pet-friendly carpeting. There is no reason to sacrifice comfort for performance when you can have both. Our exclusive carpet brands such as Relax, it’s… Lees® and Tigress® are specifically made with pets in mind. They feature the ultimate stain resistance and can easily be cleaned. This stops moisture from reaching your sub floor and prevents the growth of mould, mildew, and odour causing bacteria.

Carpets are a great choice to install in bedrooms, dens, or you can even install them in living rooms as well. Our stain, wear and fade resistant carpets can be installed in places around your home that experience a lot of traffic like stairs, hallways, and even children’s playrooms and basements.
