Learn About Carpet

When most homeowners search for carpet flooring, they are looking for something soft, stylish, and comfortable. What sets carpet apart from the rest of the flooring industry is that it makes a house a home. At Excelsior Paint & Design Carpet One Floor & Home, we carry a wide variety of top carpet brands that’ll fit the needs of just about every home.

Carpet is made up of fibers, piles, and backings. The fibers are what make a carpet; they can be synthetic like nylon or natural like wool. Piles are the fibers that get twisted into either cut or loop or cut and loop styles. The backing is what holds the whole carpet together. New technology has made carpet softer, stronger, stain resistant, and in some cases even waterproof.

You can install carpet in many different places in your home. It functions best in rooms like dens, living rooms, and bedrooms. You can install some carpets in finished basements, but we suggest checking out Tigressa H2O for a project like that.

Featured brands: Lees, Tigressa, Masland, Karastan
