Carpet Guide 

At Kerns Carpet One Floor & Home in Mequon and Brookfield, we only carry high quality carpets for you to choose from. Carpet is still the number one top choice among homeowners today due to its comfort and versatility. There are many carpet characteristics that play a role such as the pile style, the carpet cushion, and the base material. Carpets are a combination of warmth, style and comfort.

What are the Different Types of Carpet?

Pile styles are the fibers that are twisted, and they play a vital role in how a carpet looks and how it functions in your home. You also want to choose a color of your carpet that compliments your home décor, brightens up a room, or even hides stains and pet fur. The type of carpet fiber also impacts how your carpet functions, so synthetic fibers are great for durability, but a natural fiber like wool has a lot of great properties that can make a positive impact in your home.

Wool carpet is one of our most popular sellers. Wool is a natural fiber and features several benefits including being allergy friendly, easy to clean, heat insulating, and much more. We offer a variety of wool carpet types for you to choose from that suits the needs of your home as well as your personal style.

There are five main types: level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.

Where can Carpet be Installed?

Carpets that are stain resistant and wear resistant are ideal for places like hallways and staircases. A stain resistant carpet is also a great choice for children’s playrooms and living rooms that see frequent activity.

A soft carpet can go a long way and turn your space into a retreat. Carpet is a great choice for bedrooms and home offices. There are also carpets that can be installed in basements, and we recommended taking a look at the Carpet One Floor & Home exclusive brand Tigress® H2O™, our totally waterproof carpet option.

"I wanted to make sure that you knew the quality of work done on our home was terrific. First of all, the carpet itself is beautiful....the installation perfectly completed, and most of all your crew was very professional and courtesy. Simply put they treated our house as if it was their own.

The crew was timely, kept us informed at all times about what and when to expect the project to be completed etc. The crew was also clean and mindful that our home is important to us. I would rate them a 10! 

By the way, I enjoy working with Kerns from top to have a terrific organization...keep doing your wonderful work! Lastly, I would recommend Kerns to family and friends. My only regret, I don't have a Kerns carpet in my new condo....maybe someday!" - Madelynn
