Carpet Considerations


There are a lot of things to think about before you choose a new carpet for your home or business. Is durability the most important thing for you? If so, there are several things to keep in mind. One factor to think about is the amount of traffic the carpet will be getting. Another is if you will be moving furniture across the floor frequently. If you will be installing carpet in a busy area of your home, then you will probably want a low pile, loop carpet like Berber. Alternatively, if the carpet will be in a less frequently used room such as a bedroom or study, you may want to opt for carpet that is soft and comfortable to walk on, like a plush, cut pile carpet.

Stain Resistance

You should also think about the likelihood of messes or spills when shopping for new carpeting. If you have kids, pets, or frequent visitors, a stain-resistant carpet is a responsible choice. This will help keep any spills and mud from causing permanent stains. Wool carpeting is naturally stain resistant, but many other carpet fibers are also stain resistant as well. We often recommend Stainmaster Pet Protect Carpet to dog or cat owners.


Lastly, it’s always important to consider pricing when looking for new carpet. There is a wide range of carpet grades to choose from but it is important to buy carpet that fits in your flooring budget. You can opt for wool carpeting which can be more expensive, or you can choose to install nylon or polyester carpet, which can often be more affordable. Our team at Floor Coverings International Calgary is here to help you find the perfect carpet for your home that fits into your renovation budget.
