What to Consider When Shopping for Carpet

Don’t know where to begin? Start by answering the following questions, then contact Luna. A flooring professional will help you determine the best carpet for your family and lifestyle.

How do you use the room(s) where your new carpet will be installed?
Got kids and/or pets? A high-traffic family room, hallway, or kid's bedroom calls for something sturdy. Pets bring their own set of challenges too, with claws and accidents. A high-traffic, durable carpet is the answer, and a Luna flooring professional will show you many options.

What kind of look and feel do you want for your new carpet?
A chic, modern office with neutral décor is begging for excitement. Let a rich pattern carpet turn the space into a designer room. If you envision a thick, luxurious flooring that you can sink into after a long day instead, consider a nice texture and plush carpet. A flooring professional from Luna will show you many ideas to help achieve the look you are going for.

How much time will you have to clean and maintain the new carpet?
Does your busy lifestyle make it hard to maintain your floors on a daily basis? Frieze carpet is a great choice because its flecks of color often hide dirt and crumbs that accumulate on the floor during those in-between cleanings. A flooring professional can show you the carpet styles that will fit within your daily routines.

Types of Carpet Offered by Luna

Texture & Plush Carpet

Texture and plush carpet is one of the most popular styles for your whole house because it features a smooth, level surface that comes in a variety of colors. Texture and plush cut pile surface shows subtle highlights and tones of color and looks great in traditional and formal applications.

Frieze Carpet

Frieze carpet is a fun, soft, and casual choice for your home. The “shaggy” look of frieze can help conceal crumbs and dirt as well as vacuum tracks and footprints. Frieze carpet comes in many looks such as solid, flecks of color, and different colored yarns twisted together.

Pattern Carpet

Spruce up any room with pattern carpet. Pattern carpet’s distinct appearance and texture can add a designer quality to any home. Multi-level fibers and contrasting colors create square grids, linear ripples, lattices, and even geometric shapes.

Berber Carpet

Berber carpet is as comfortable as it is casual, which is why it’s so popular in many different rooms of the home. Ideal for high-traffic areas, Berber carpet features a low profile and thick loops of yarn, making its construction highly durable.

Indoor/Outdoor Carpet

Changing temperatures and volatile weather are no match for indoor/outdoor carpet. Indoor/outdoor carpet has inherent UV, moisture, and mildew resistance, making it a perfect choice for sun porches, covered patios, and porches.

How to Care for Your Carpet

Your new carpet can look great for many years. Here are some carpet care tips to keep in mind:
  • 1. Vacuum high-traffic areas at least twice a week. In less visited rooms, vacuum at least once a week.
  • 2. When spills happen, absorb the liquid as much as possible with white towels. Blot until there is no more transfer of the stain onto the towels.
  • 3. The faster you act, the easier it is to keep stains from sticking around. For relentless stains, avoid strong chemicals and call a professional carpet cleaning service.
  • 4. Doormats in the home help absorb moisture and prevent soiling from spreading to the new carpet. “Shoes off!” is also a friendly reminder worth mentioning to your guests.
Moving heavy furniture every so often helps prevent permanent indentations from forming. Floor protectors are great for under couch legs and TV stands as well.
