Carpet in St. Thomas, ON

Warm enough for southwestern Ontario’s frigid winters, modern carpet is crafted with care. Carpet comes in countless styles, weaves, and colours, so it’s easy to make the perfect match. 


Elgin Carpet One Floor & Home in St. Thomas, ON, is your source for the region’s finest carpet selection. Our flooring experts are here to help you find the right carpet for your comfort, style, and space.


What Types of Carpet Are There?

Carpet types are distinguished by their respective fibre materials, pile styles, and performance features.


Determining the specific needs of your space is a vital first step in your journey towards choosing the proper carpets. Ask yourself about regular foot traffic levels. Do little kids and pets spend a lot of time in this room? Or is it a quieter space geared towards more passive use? 


  • Plush carpets have a smooth, velvety texture that’s smooth to the touch. It’s often selected for spaces with lots of foot traffic.
  • Textured carpets are distinguished by their varying fiber lengths and stunning patterns. Use a textured carpet if you prefer to conceal footprints: they also hide debris.
  • Frieze carpets are woven with luxury fibres for a “shag” appearance. Most of these products are best reserved for quieter spaces, like a master bedroom.
  • Saxony carpets are a specific frieze type with longer fibres.
  • Berber carpets have leveled loops and are extremely sturdy. Berber carpet isn’t recommended for pet lovers, since furry paws and claws tend to get snagged in its fibres.


Your carpet fibres are sourced from either synthetic or natural materials.


  • Nylon carpet is a softer synthetic that must be treated for stain resistance.
  • Polyester carpet has built-in stain resistance, with a texture that’s like nylon.
  • Triexta carpet is a commercial favorite. Its hefty, rough fibres and neutral patterns are highly forgiving.
  • Olefin carpet has intricate patterns that are made with beauty, rather than hard usage in mind.
  • Wool carpet is naturally derived and boasts impressive insulation abilities. Since its fibres are from a renewable resource, wool is considered one of the most sustainable rugs around.


Where Can I Install Carpet?

Carpet can be installed in almost any room, apart from the kitchen & bath.


Modern ingenuity has made carpet accessible for all: there are even special carpets designed for life with kids and pets, and moisture-friendly carpets. While we once were limited to where we could enjoy carpet, today the sky is truly the limit! However, we still don't recommend using carpet in the kitchen & bath for obvious reasons. 


Among our favorite spots for carpet installation are:


  • Bedrooms
  • Living Rooms
  • Nurseries
  • Playrooms
  • Dens
  • Home Offices
  • Family Rooms
  • Finished Basements
  • Hallways
  • Stairways
  • New Constructions
  • Renovations


Planning Your Carpet Installation

So, you've found the perfect carpet and can't wait to get started: now what?


Installing new carpet isn't recomended for novices. Carpet installation is definitely an art requiring skill, patience, the proper tools, and plenty of time. The truth is that most of us aren't really equipped to install our own carpet.


It might seem cheaper to attempt on one's own, but things can easily go wrong. Even worse: errors can cost you even more in the long run! It's easy to see why many product warranties require professional carpet installation as a coverage condition.

Best Area Rugs

Would you prefer the look of carpet minus the cost and commitment? Consider an area rug.


Area rugs are a wonderful way to embrace soft-surface flooring without having wall-to-wall carpet permanently installed in your home. Rugs add instant warmth and comfort, along with a pop of colour.


They can also define borders in mixed-used spaces and will protect your hard-surface flooring from scratches and dents.
