Carpet in Oklahoma
Nothing compares to the feeling of new carpet. Carpet comforts us in ways other floors cannot. There are hundreds of carpet options today, including carpets made to cohabitate with pets and little kids.
We carry a full residential and commercial carpet inventory at Johnson Floor & Home Carpet One Floor & Home in Tulsa, OK, proudly serving the needs of greater Tulsa County, northeast Oklahoma, and eastern Kansas. Before you start shopping for new carpet, here are a couple of things to keep in mind.
Which carpet type is your best bet for your upcoming remodeling project? Now is the time to ask yourself good, honest questions. Consider your home’s activity levels, its climate, and your budget, as well as your style. Referred to as “pile,” carpet fibers determine how your carpet works and feels. Carpet pile can be either synthetic or natural. The more popular pile options include wool, olefin, triexta, and nylon. All these materials can be woven into assorted styles, such as level-loop or frieze.
Stain-resistant carpet spans all your favorite colors, styles, and patterns, along with the needed benefits for hectic living. Offering attractive options for any space or budget, these carpets have specially coated fibers to keep spills at bay. Even stubborn offenders like spaghetti sauce or chocolate cannot seep in. Simply dab away accidents using a clean towel and a bit of water and go about your day. Stain-resistant carpet can go in all types of residential and commercial spaces. While we still don’t advise using carpet in the kitchen or bathroom, stain-resistant carpet is a sound solution for anywhere else under your roof
Nylon is a well-known fiber for its durability and strength. While it can be more costly than other fibers, it’s excellent for busy homes.
Polyester is a synthetic fiber like nylon. It is budget-friendly, durable, and strong, and can be treated with stain-resistance.
Olefin is a bit different from nylon and polyester and is known for its color. It is not as durable as the other two synthetic fibers, but it is stain-resistant and beautiful.
Wool is a popular natural carpet fiber that is soft. It is also fire-resistant and requires professional maintenance to keep it looking its best.
To understand how the type of carpet factors into your home, know the differences between types of carpet: simply how the fibers are attached to the backing. This can change how the carpet looks as well as how it performs over time.
Cut pile carpet is carpet fibers that are attached to the backing then sheared. The end of the fibers that are cut is what you feel underfoot. Cut pile carpets can vary in length and height, which can change the way the carpet feels.
Loop pile carpet is constructed by attaching looped fibers onto the backing. The loops are not cut, but instead, kept in a loop shape. Loop pile carpet can also vary in height and length, with tall loops being more luxurious than short loops.
Cut loop carpet has both cut and loop piles on one backing. The advantage to cut loop carpet is that it usually comes in unique designs and patterns.
Modern carpet is a beautiful choice for any interior setting, except for kitchens and bathrooms. Carpet works well in both residential and commercial interiors. Choose your products with care. For instance, a heavy-duty Berber weave is a smart choice for the hallway or stairs.
Waterproof carpet works perfectly overall in homes with kids and pets. Of course, stain-resistant carpet spans all your favorite carpet colors, styles, and patterns, along with the needed perks for hectic living. Offering attractive options for any space or budget, these carpet products are equipped with specially coated fibers to keep spills at bay. As a result, even the most stubborn offenders like spaghetti sauce or chocolate cannot sink in. Simply dab away accidents using a clean towel and a bit of water and go about your day.
