The Art of Flooring

Nothing helps a room feel cozy and intimate like quality carpet. At Tompkins Flooring, we carry carpet in a variety of colors, patterns, and weaves from the industry's leading carpet manufacturers. Many of our brands are stain-resistant, which is perfect for those with children or pets. With its nearly unlimited color and texture choices, our carpets offer versatility like no other flooring option. Why choose carpet? There are many benefits to using carpeting: Comfort - Durability - Quality. Carpets with the right care can last for many years.
Variety - With its large selection of colors, textures and patterns, carpeting can be tailored to complement any decor. Safety - As a non-slick surface, carpet puts safety first.
Noise reduction - Carpet reduces echoes and noise to lower sound levels in the home.
Carpeting comes in many varieties. Consider these factors as you shop for carpet.
The most common carpeting is made of nylon. It's comfortable, durable, and stain resistant. Other options include wool, polyester, and olefin, each with unique characteristics. Color and style: Dark colored carpet can add intimacy to a room. Lighter colors can brighten a room. From berber to plush, the color and style combinations of carpet seem endless.
Quality: Like most investments for your home, good quality is important. Lower cost carpets will most likely need to be replaced sooner resulting in higher total cost. Choosing the right carpeting can be a challenge. Our professional carpeting experts at Tompkins Flooring can help you carefully balance your flooring budget against quality and home decor considerations to ensure your carpet selection looks great and can stand the test of time. When it comes time to installing your new carpet, our professional installers will treat your project as their top priority.
Types of Carpet
Carpet is constructed in several different ways, along with a variety of fibers. Understanding the strengths and differences of each will help you make the right choices for your lifestyle, home, and budget.
Cut Pile: One of the most popular constructions, cut pile achieves its durability through the type of fiber used, density of tufts, and the amount of twist in the yarn. Highly twisted yarn will hold its shape longer, making it a smart choice for high-traffic areas.
Textured Plush – Decorative and versatile. Textured surfaces help hide footprints and vacuum marks. Add causal beauty to any room. The preferred style for busy households. A great carpet for the entire home.
Saxony – Refined surface. Works well with traditional interiors. Ideal for living and dining rooms.
Friezé – Forms a “curly” textured surface because yarns are extremely twisted. Has an informal look. Helps minimize footprints and vacuum marks.
Plush (Velvet) – Dense, luxurious feel. Shows footprints and vacuum marks easily. Best for low traffic areas and formal rooms.
Level loop pile: Loops are the same height, creating an informal look. It generally lasts a long time in high-traffic areas. Many of today’s popular Berber styles are level loop styles with flecks of a darker color on a lighter background.
Multi-level loop pile: Usually has two to three different loop heights to create pattern effects, providing good durability and a more casual look.
Cut and loop pile: Combination of cut and looped yarns. Provides variety of surface textures, including sculptured effects of squares, chevrons, swirls, etc.
