Hey guys!! I’m back with another house update 🙂 One question we get a LOT is ‘what color and brand is your carpet’? When renovating and building, it’s actually one of the most overwhelming decisions to make because – there are SO MANY CHOICES out there! I was overwhelmed with the choices myself (and realized why we get that question so often). So, I’m really excited to share my experience in carpet selections with you!
I started by searching online for the perfect color/brand and found American Carpet Wholesalers. I loved their prices and they had a ton of selections! I felt great about the company once I realized they had a Google trusted store badge!!!
So where to go from there? I contacted the company and requested some samples of different colors and materials that I liked. They were super helpful and quick to respond and my samples arrived in a couple of days. I was looking for a carpet that was dark enough to hide messes 😉 but also stain resistant.
I decided to go with Mohawk’s Smartstrand product. It’s recycled – WHAT! Never knew recycled carpet existed! It is made from over 1/3 renewable sources, in part it is made up from garden variety corn…crazy! The process to make the fiber uses 30% less energy to produce than what is used to produce nylon. That is equal to 1 gallon of gasoline! The production also has 63% less emission of greenhouse gas. The sample really blew me away. It’s super plush and it is by far the softest carpet I have ever touched! The color? Weathered Oak. It is the perfect blend of darker neutrals and I love the warmth it adds to every room.
American Carpet Wholesalers also sent me 2 padding options. My favorite was the Smart Cushion, also by Mohawk. It has a spill-safe moisture guard and antimicrobial additives to inhibit the growth of mildew, mold and fungus. Gross to think about so I was all about antimicrobial 😉 Plus, it is sooooooooo soft. The samples they sent were large enough to get a really good idea of how the pad felt and this one was the winner by everyone in our family 🙂
I still need to get busy building furniture 😉 If you are in the market for new carpet, I hope I helped make your decision a little easier, I highly recommend American Carpet Wholesalers. The process couldn’t have been easier, the price was right, I got the perfect carpet that I envisioned and it arrived as-ordered! It just doesn’t get any better than that!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
