Carpet in Peoria, IL

Supple and eternally comforting, carpet has consistently held on to its leading spot as one of America’s most popular flooring mediums, and it isn’t difficult to understand why. Modern carpet options genuinely offer something for every home and budget.


At Columbia Rug Carpet One Floor & Home in Peoria, Illinois, we love today’s carpet for its impressive array of color and pattern options, ability to give your space an instant makeover, and welcoming presence. 


What Are the Different Types of Carpet?

Not all carpets are alike; many options are available for different performance needs today.


One of the most important things to consider when you buy carpet is the fiber type. Fibers have an enormous impact on how a carpet will perform and function. These fibers also play a role in the style and softness of the rug and how it will look in your home. When it comes to finding a new carpet, it is more than choosing a color; you’ll want a rug that is made to handle your lifestyle.


Fibers used in carpets include nylon, polyester, triexta, olefin/polypropylene, and wool.



Where Can I Install Carpet?

Most homeowners like to install carpet in spaces of their homes where they relax.


You can install carpet in your bedroom, living room, home office, and children’s playrooms. Carpets built to be durable such as stain-resistant options, are perfect for high-traffic areas in your home, like hallways. A carpet is much warmer than hardwood flooring: perfect to warm your feet on chilly winter mornings. 


As your local carpet expert, we recommend not installing carpet in places such as entryways, kitchens, or bathrooms due to the potential for moisture damage.



How Can I Prepare for Carpet Installation?

Being ready to install your new carpet can make the process faster and more efficient.


Our first advice is to go with professional installers with years of experience. We hire outside contractors to do our installations and trust them to do the job right for you.


Below are some of the basic installation things you need to know:






Do I Really Need Carpet Cushion?

Yes, the proper carpet padding can dramatically extend the life of your carpet by guarding against spills and adding density.


Think about carpet cushion as carpet’s protective layer: it enables you to worry about your floor a little less and live a little more.


First you’ll need to choose a cushion material. You can choose from rubber, foam, fiber, and different thicknesses and densities. Opt for a thin, dense cushion to absorb the impact if you’re installing traffic in a room with high-volume foot traffic.
