Carpet Flooring in Mississauga, ON
Considering going the carpet route for your flooring needs? It always helps to do your research beforehand so you can make the best-informed decision for you. So here are a few things to consider when looking at and buying carpet for your space.
Colour is a very personal decision, but our experts are here to offer up some suggestions we think would work for you. Neutral colours are always a safe bet, as more bold and vibrant colours are better introduced with accent pieces like pillows, artwork, and drapery. These pieces can be changed with the seasons or when the need for change hits you. A carpet, especially in a large area, is a little more difficult and expensive to replace. But by all means, if you want to be adventurous and experiment with colour we have a wide variety of options for you as well.
There’s more to choosing a carpet than colouring. Something else to consider is the type of fibre. The level of traffic on your carpet and the budget you have to work with will be the main factors in determining carpet fibre. Nylon, olefin (polypropylene), polyester, and wool are the most common fibres used in carpeting. A full description of each type can be found here. The expert staff of flooring professionals at Décor Floors can also fully answer any and all questions that you may have.
Another aspect to consider is that carpeting also comes in a variety of types and styles. Saxony refers to carpeting where the yarns are densely packed together and cut evenly. This gives the carpet a plush, smooth look. Although beautiful and luxurious, this type of carpeting easily shows vacuum tracks and seams in the carpet where the pieces have been joined together. Other styles of carpeting are textured, frieze, looped/berber, cut & loop/pattern. See a full description of each style here.
When laying down your carpet it’s very important to make sure there’s carpet padding as well. This is the cushiony layer that goes underneath the carpet. It provides insulation from cold floors as well as absorbs noise. The right quality and thickness of padding can be addressed by any of our carpeting professionals and we recommend following the manufacturer’s suggestions.
