How to choose a good carpet?

So you?ve decided on a new floor covering, and it?s going to be carpet. Congratulations! Good choice! But as you look into the carpet market, you may find yourself a bit overwhelmed. There is so much to carpeting! So many fibers to consider, not to mention the colors and patterns as well. Don't fret; Mercer Carpet One is here to help you every step of the way.

What do you require?

You have requirements for your carpet. That is what you want it to do. To find out these requirements, speak to our staff and answer a few questions. What room is the carpet going to be in? Is it a large or small room? Is it used a lot or a little? Do you have heavy furniture in the room and want your carpet to be durable? Or look brilliant? Does it need to be stain-resistant? How big is your budget?

Research the carpet

When you research the carpet, you'll find five primary fibers that carpets use: wool, polyester, nylon, Triexta, and olefin. Find out the characteristics of each fiber. Look at the differences between natural and synthetic fibers. Usually, your choice will come down to what fibers suit you the best. Then look at construction styles of manufacturers, like Saxony, Berber, high pile/low pile, cut pile, frieze, looped, cut and looped, and others.
