The perfect carpet in a Maple Ridge, BC home

Your Carpet Buying Guide

If you?re ready to get serious about your carpet flooring purchase, Diverse Flooring would love to help guide you through the process. The entire experience can seem daunting at the beginning, but when you visit our Maple Ridge, BC showroom, we?ll put your mind at ease.

It all starts with a clear and concise idea about what you want and need from your flooring. Consider your in-house traffic levels, how active your pets and children are, and whether or not you have specific requirements for d?cor matching.

Carpet flooring that fits your needs

Choosing a fiber for your flooring is the most critical first step. Nylon and polyester fibers are excellent for high-traffic households, as they are more stain and crush resistant. Some brands offer built-in stain protection, as well. If you have very little traffic, you might prefer the beautiful elegance of wool or a shag carpeting that matches your d?cor.

Be prepared for the following terms:

  • Pile ? the fiber height
  • Twist ? the number of fiber turns per inch
  • Weight ? the measurement of ounces per square yard
  • Density ? the measurement of the closeness of the fiber strands
  • Texture ? looped, cut, or twisted fibers

Another essential aspect of your floor purchase is padding. It?s not readily visible but plays some vital roles overall. It provides noise reduction, comfort, heat retention, and also extends the life of your flooring, so it?s well worth it. It can be tempting to skip this unseen feature to allot more of your budget to the flooring itself, but we advise against that for the best results.

Make sure you honestly consider your budget when you begin shopping. Always take the padding and installation into consideration, so that you?ll have plenty of room to plan and make substitutions, if necessary. For instance, if you have previous flooring installation experience, this could allow you to spend more on the product or padding.
