Buying a new carpet or rug

What to look for when you’re buying a new carpet or rug

Looking for a new carpet or rug for your West Palm Beach home? The options and choices can be overwhelming and at California Designs, we're here to help make the decision making process simpler. While we are not the only carpet and flooring company operating in the area, we are one that has a sound reputation in the industry and a product range that offers exceptional quality and value for money.

When shopping around for carpets and rugs, there are a few things that you should look for to ensure that you are making a sound investment for your home:

  • Investigate the different types of carpets on the market and see samples of each. The market typically caters to loop pile, Saxony, twist, synthetic and many more. It is best to familiarize yourself with top carpeting brands. We recommend Wools of New Zealand, Couristan, Fabrica, Kane, Masland, Nourison and Stanton.
  • Choose a carpet pile that is suited to your living environment and offers a quality flooring surface. The pile of a carpet is determined by its thickness and length of the fibers used. If you need a thick, plush carpet, pay attention to its pile and twist. Choose a carpet with a great pile density and tight twist construction, if you want a durable floor covering.
  • Ask the carpet and rug manufacturer about the stain protection options available. Spills and stains are a part of life, so choose a carpet that is designed to be resistant to these or that can be easily cleaned and maintained.
  • Don't skimp on the carpet cushioning or padding. While the padding goes a long way towards making the carpet comfortable underfoot, it can also protect the carpet from damage and extend its life span.
  • Enquire about the carpet or rug's warranty cover. If you want to avoid unpleasant surprises down the road, make sure that you know what to expect from your carpet or rug and make sure that it is well suited to the type of environment that it will be used in too.
