Carpeting to complete your home

Carpeting is a highlight in many homes and commercial spaces. Its warmth, comfort, and luxury are unmatched in the flooring industry. With proper regular maintenance, it will be a central feature in your home for years to come.

How do I choose carpet for my house?

Shopping for carpet can be overwhelming. Nearly half of our showroom showcases carpet, so we know all about this issue. Here are some tips for choosing the right style for your home –

  • Fix up to sell - If you are not planning to stay in your home for long, polyester is a good, budget-friendly fiber choice. Browse the Dream Weaver, Mohawk EverStrand, and Shaw Simply the Best displays for these economical styles.
  • Rough and tumble – If there are kids or pets in your home, you need a carpet able to keep up with them. Shaw's Pet Perfect and Mohawk's Pet Premier are excellent choices for this scenario. They are stain-resistant, durable, and easy to clean carpets. SmartStrand Triexta also functions well in this situation. Pick SmartStrand Silk for the softest option for your playroom.
  • Environmentally friendly – Carpet can be a good choice for the environmentally conscious consumer. Godfrey Hirst has a beautiful line of wool carpets, while Mohawk EverStrand begins with recycled plastic bottles. SmartStrand Triexta is partially corn-based, and one of the manufacturing plants is in Iowa. Additionally, all carpet lines we carry are manufactured in the United States.
  • Texture and patterns – Selecting a patterned carpet is an excellent way to add style and elegance to any room. DW Select and Anderson Tuftex have a wide selection of on-trend patterns.
  • Pad makes a difference - The correct pad choice will not only provide the proper cushion for your new carpet but can also extend the life of your carpet. Upgrade to SmartCushion to extend the warranty of your new Mohawk carpet.
