If you need a floor that’s quick to install and instantly transform, carpet is a flooring favorite for residential and commercial spaces alike. At Southwest Carpet One Floor & Home in Tyler, TX, we have the best carpet products, including custom area rugs, and we’re always eager to share our extensive knowledge to help you meet your perfect match. If you think carpet might be an ideal fit for your upcoming renovation project, here are things to consider before you shop.


Which Type of Carpet Will Work Best?

Carpet has something for everyone, whether your main goal is to completely change your room’s appearance, or your main priority is stain-management. Carpet fibers, also referred to as “pile,” determine your rug’s performance rating and overall density, as well as its appearance and texture. Carpet pile can be either natural or synthetic. For a soft and durable carpet, polyester and nylon pile is preferred, while wool fibers work well for those with allergies, while offering reliable insulation.



Here are the basics on the different carpet types:


Get Serious About Stain Resistance

Stain-resistant carpet manages challenging spills like chocolate, red wine, and finger paints. Keeping odors and spots at bay, these incredible carpets are as sturdy as they are stylish. Each of your carpet’s strands is coated with a unique substance that blocks stains in their tracks. Simple remove “accidents” using a clean towel and a little water: that’s all that’s necessary, we promise. Stain-resistant carpeting can go anywhere other carpets can go and beyond. There are residential and commercial selections in a full spectrum of colors, patterns, and weaves. Like all carpets, stain-resistant products aren’t appropriate for bathrooms or kitchens. Let our specialists guide you towards the best stain-resistant options for yourself and your family.


Planning Your Carpet Installation

Family rooms, living rooms and bedrooms are communal areas to install carpet, but you won’t want to rule out those dining rooms, hallways, stairs, and entryways. Is carpet a good fit for these spaces in an active home? The answer is “absolutely!” but it’s important to pay close attention to your carpet’s construction, which very well may change from room to room.


No matter which carpet type you opt for, it’s important to consider finding the perfect carpet pad. Carpet padding helps to reduce noise, increase cushion underneath, and control spills and stains. Additionally, the right carpet padding helps create a healthier home with better air quality.
