Choosing the Right Carpet

Dec 9, 2014

Carpet is a very popular home flooring choice because it can be more affordable than other types of flooring and is comfortable under foot. 

According to the Carpet and Rug Institute, the benefits of carpet are that it:

  • provides warmth and comfort
  • adds beauty and style
  • softens slips and falls
  • reduces noise, and
  • wears well

However, advocates of hard surfaces might argue that carpet is prone to staining, more difficult to keep clean than a hard surface, and harbors contaminants.  If you side with the hard surfacers, read Carpet and Your Health.  You might find that carpet is actually better for you than you think.

Now that you’re in the carpet fan club, there is a wide range of carpet to choose from.  But choosing the right carpet can be a little trickier than you might think.  There are different constructions to choose from (saxony, frieze, plush, etc.), endless color opportunities, and quality and performance considerations.  We know how overwhelming it can be to choose the right flooring, so we’ve hand-selected Beaulieu of America carpets for our central Florida flooring showroom.  

By bringing you “the nicest carpet in the world” – Bliss carpet – Flooring HQ offers the color, quality and construction options you want, without overwhelming you with options.  And Bliss carpets are available with Beaulieu’s patentedMagic Fresh odor-reducer and Silver Release antimicrobial treatment.  

Our flooring specialists will help you choose Bliss carpet samples based on your answers to the following questions:  

  • How is the room going to be used?
  • Will it have heavy or light traffic?
  • Will the room be the center of activity for family and entertaining?
  • Is there direct access from outside, or will the carpet be away from entrances?
  • Will the carpet receive direct sunlight?

Think about the answers to these questions before you arrive to simplify the shopping process even further.
