Choosing a Carpet

When deciding what carpet to buy for your home, there are a few factors that you should consider.


The advent of carpet fiber stain technology brought about a revolution in color possibilities. Homeowners, no longer fearing the use of light colored carpets, demand wider color choices. In general, darker shades create a dramatic effect, while lighter shades create a sense of spaciousness.


There are three basic carpet constructions: cut pile, loop pile and cut & loop pile. When making your selection, ask your Advantage Flooring expert what style will work best in the area you wish to have the carpet installed.


Carpet texture establishes the character of a room or home, from the formal look of cut pile velvet Saxony to the casual look of frieze. The texture of carpet allows you to express your personality and lifestyle. A heavily textured carpet will also help hide foot prints.


Density is how tightly each fiber is stitched together. To avoid a crushed and matted appearance, choose a carpet with high density.


Twist is how many times the fiber is twisted together in a one-inch length. The twist relates directly to the carpet’s performance. A poorly twisted carpet may unravel giving a frayed and shaggy appearance.


Cushion relates to the padding installed under the carpet. A denser padding typically increases comfort and durability.


In order to keep your Advantage Flooring carpet in the best possible condition:
Vacuum on a regular basis and have your carpets professionally cleaned every 12 to 18 months.
