Carpeting is a simple, surefire way to add a touch of comfort, color, and class to any room. Carpet is the most practical, fashionable, and versatile flooring choice and it accounts for more than half of all flooring purchases made each year. In fact, carpet has outsold every other type of floor covering for nearly 50 years.
Carpet is a key decorative and functional element in a home or business. It can provide simplicity and a casual feel for softness and livability, or it can provide pizzazz with vibrant color and heavier textures for making a decorating “statement.” Carpet can be one of the easiest ways to personalize an environment – its color can be a neutral foundation “in the background,” or it can be a vibrant focal point. Premier Flooring offers a wide selection of brand name carpets. We’ll bring samples directly to your home, so you can see how the carpet will look with your furniture, your walls, and lighting. You can choose from a variety of textures including Berbers, Plushes, and Friezes from top carpet brands like Mohawk, Shaw, and Beaulieu.
Carpet offers many advantages that other flooring choices do not. Here’s a few of the unique benefits that carpeting adds to your home – some you probably haven’t thought of:
Carpet is the ideal choice for bedrooms, family rooms, and other areas where warmth underfoot is crucial.
Carpet and carpet padding provide an extra layer of insulation between floors of your home. In fact, depending on its density and weight, carpet contributes to the R-value of a home, adding to its energy efficiency.
Carpet provides a non-slip surface to prevent accidents and a natural cushion in the event of a fall. This is especially important for young children and the elderly.
Carpeting reduces noise better than any other flooring choice. In fact, carpet dampens noise in three ways: reducing surface noise from foot traffic, absorbing airborne sound, and blocking transmission of sound between floors. These qualities are especially valuable in apartments and semi-detached homes.
The addition of carpeting to a room can disguise existing floor damage and hide other irregularities such as uneven or warped floors.
Today’s carpets are more stain-resistant than ever before, making cleanups of even the worst spills a breeze.
Scientific studies have shown that carpet can improve indoor air quality by trapping potential allergy-causing particulates – if the carpet is properly cleaned and maintained.

Carpets aren’t only for floors! Carpeting can be easily added to stairs, steps, walls, posts and other irregular and non-level surfaces, with no worry that it’ll slip, lift or buckle.
