The best in carpet options

 
Who knew you’d have so many options when it comes to carpet as a floor covering. Many homeowners see carpet as a more limited option, however, that’s simply not true. Especially in this day and age when technology has taken us so far. Now, lovers of this floor covering have more options than ever in both appearance and available benefits. Even those who could not have it installed previously are now finding that it fits their needs and makes their home look great, all at the same time.

Nielsen Bros Flooring entered the flooring business in 1946, strictly selling only carpet and tile. Since then, both the showrooms and flooring content have expanded exponentially, to now serve the areas of Bellevue, Redmond, Kirkland, Auburn, Renton, Tacoma, Lynnwood, Edmonds, and Bothell, all from showrooms located in Bellevue, WA; Auburn, WA; and Lynwood, WA. We would love for you to visit one of our showrooms to find out how we can help you find the perfect floors and services for your own home. Stop by today to get your own experience started.

When it comes to contributing to the atmosphere of a space, few room design elements have as much influence as carpeting. From unconventional patterns to traditional neutrals, the effect of a carpet’s color, texture and thickness should not be understated as a decorative way to express your unique sense of style. Choose from a range of materials that includes the finest wool fibers, practical synthetics that withstand heavy foot traffic, and everything in between.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Types of carpet

 
Carpet styles differ, not just in look and feel but in function and features. Get to know each type and determine the best fit for your style and needs.

  • Textured: Featuring a dense, uneven surface, textured carpeting lends itself to a casual look that hides footprints and vacuum tracks. It’s a great choice for high-traffic areas and active families.
  • Saxony: Also called “plush” carpeting, Saxony features a soft, even surface with a smooth finish.
  • Frieze: The long, twisting fibers of a frieze carpet lie in all different directions, providing deep texture for a luxurious feel. Frieze is extremely durable, with a loose, casual look ideal for high-traffic spaces.
  • Cable or Shag: Long, thick yarns make shag carpeting very comfortable, ideal for low-traffic areas such as sitting rooms.
  • Loop: The durable loops of yarn in loop carpeting can be constructed at even heights for a softer, smoother feel or uneven heights to create unique patterns.
  • Cut & Loop: Sculpt soft, smooth and stylish patterns by combining straight yarns with looped ones, which has the added benefit of being able to hide wear and soil.
 

Best rooms for carpet

 
Carpet is a soft & comfortable floor covering option that provides cushion for walking, seating and play. This makes it ideal for family rooms and other gathering spaces. The warmth of carpet also makes it an attractive choice for bedrooms, offering comfort year-round.

Not sure which type of carpet is the right fit for your lifestyle? Consider the following:

  • Do you have children? What age are they?
  • Do you have pets? How large are they?
  • What design style do you envision for your room?
  • What room is this carpeting for?
Once you've answered these questions, visit your local Nielsen Bros showroom to feel and talk to one of our expert sales professionals. They'll suggest options and allow you to see and feel each one up close!

Benefits of carpet

 
Carpet certainly offers the softest underfoot feel of any floor covering. You may even find yourself looking for excuses to walk barefoot in your home once you’ve experienced this lushness. It’s also a beautiful addition to nearly any room in your home, especially living rooms, dens, studies and bedrooms.

Carpet, as well as the under padding that goes with it, is like adding an extra layer of insulation to your home. This really changes things in the colder months, and helps to retain much of the heat your furnace produces. In turn, this means your furnace will not run as often and the end result is a savings on your overall energy bill.

To get the most out of your new flooring, and to help it reach its full potential in lifespan, you’ll want to make sure you choose the right fiber. Let your flooring specialist know about the particular traffic levels in your home, whether you have pets or children and if there are any special considerations that need to be taken into account. All of these can help us steer you in the right direction and help you find the best carpet available for your own unique needs.

While you’re at it, make sure you ask about why only professional installations are advised with this product.
