Carpet Guide

Bastian Carpet One Floor & Home in Allentown, PA is your local neighborhood expert when it comes to carpet. Carpet is still one of the top choices in flooring for its comfortable and even energy-saving qualities.

Expert Advice - Choosing a Carpet Style

Jim Aaron, our VP of Merchandising for Carpet One Floor & Home, shares some information on the different carpet styles that are available.

Carpet features an unmatched comfort no other flooring can replicate. Carpet is a durable and soft solution for your home. Turn a bedroom or living room into a personal retreat with new carpeting that adds comfort and style. 

Types of Carpet

Carpet has come a long way, and it now comes in styles that are stain and even water resistant. Go with a stain resistant carpet like Lees®, which has stain fighting technology and is perfect for homes with pets. Our Tigressá H2O™ carpets are totally waterproof, meaning you can confidently install then in your finished basement and not have to worry too much about your subfloor. Consider the color you want your carpet to be, something that compliments your home décor, brightens up a room or even hides stains and pet fur.

Knowing what fibers a carpet is made of is also important in choosing a carpet for your home. There are synthetic fibers like nylon and polyester that can be made to be super soft or ultra-strong. Then there are natural fibers like wool, which retains color well and is also naturally allergy friendly.

Where Can Carpet Be Installed?

Carpet can be installed in several different places of your home such as bedrooms, living rooms, children’s playrooms, and even home offices. Stain resistant carpets that also feature wear resistance can be installed in high traffic areas like hallways and staircases. Since carpet absorbs moisture, it is best to avoid installing carpet near or in rooms with a lot of humidity and moisture like bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms.
