How to Choose Carpet

  • STYLE: The carpet you choose for your home reflects your personal style and your practical requirements just as much as the clothes you wear. Choose a style or construction of carpet that appeals to your personal taste and suits your lifestyle.
  • COLOR: Carpet comes in many colors, including solids, tonals, and accents. Making a selection can seem overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. If you’re not comfortable selecting color, many Perfect Home Flooring retailers have expert designers on staff to help in coordinating colors that enhance the design of your room. You can also go the safe route and choose a neutral beige or gray. If you’re planning on selling your home, this might be the way to go.
  • FIBER: To make the right fiber choice, it’s important to consider some simple questions: Do you have children or pets? Will your carpet be in a high traffic area? Will it be exposed to direct sunlight? Will it be near an entrance from the outdoors? The ideal carpet for you is one that appeals to you visually, and is also durable enough for your lifestyle.

Use of Color

Neutral colors are the easiest to decorate with and can give a room a spacious, airy look. While beiges are the most popular, neutral colors have expanded into other color families such as grays, pale greens, sun-washed yellows, lilac and sky blue.

If you want a bolder statement, use a more dramatic color to add flair and create an upbeat and sophisticated room. To achieve this look. Identify a common accent color in your decor, and then find a coordinating carpet color.

As a basic rule, warm colors can add comfort to a room that lacks light, while cool greens and blues can bring a calming ambiance.

Lighter colors can make a room seem larger, while darker colors can often make it more intimate and cozy. Darker colors and accents also help disguise common soil in high traffic areas.

Carpet Fiber Comparison

  • NYLON: It is the most versatile of all fibers, providing exceptional softness and excellent flexibility in creating a wide variety of carpet styles. Nylon is also the most durable and resilient carpet fiber available. Though not inherently stain resistant, most nylon carpets include a stain-resistant carpet treatment like R2X or Scotchgard. Also, some nylons are solution dyed, which means the color goes throughout the fiber so it enhances fade and stain resistance.
  • TRIEXTA: Combining the resilience of nylon and the stain resistance of polyester, Triexta provides excellent performance and value. It is also exceptionally soft and offers a wide array of styles and design options.
  • POLYESTER: While not quite as durable as nylon, polyester has improved greatly the last few years, offers exceptional color clarity, is naturally stain and fade resistant. Polyester carpet offers the best value in floor covering. Also, some polyesters are solution dyed, which means the color goes throughout the fiber so it enhances fade and stain resistance.

Carpet Performance Factors

Your Perfect Home carpet will provide you with years of beauty and performance. The performance of your carpet will be determined by several factors:

  • Proper Cushioning: A good cushion (pad) will act as a shock absorber and transfer weight and wear from the carpet to the pad. This will extend the life of your carpet. Ask your sales associate for the correct pad.
  • Construction: Fiber, density of yarn, yarn twists, etc. will all affect the performance of your carpet. All of these factors will impact the durability of the carpet as well as its look.

Solid color carpets are a single color overall. The top row shows warmer colors and bottom row shows cooler colors.

Multi-color carpets hide dirt between cleanings. They combine two very similar colors and add a third darker or brighter color.
