How to shop like a pro for carpet flooring

Often people select carpet flooring based on appearance only, but there are many other things you should consider, such as style, fiber, and construction.

Indy Floor Source LLC is a 25-year-old, family-owned and operated company known for quality, integrity, consumer education, and installations developed from fine craftsmanship.

Therefore we enjoy an A rating on Angie’s List, as well as a 5-star one on Houzz.

We are a carpet flooring retailer, and we will guide you through the virtually limitless number of colors, patterns, and designs. All the while we will keep an eye toward your decor, functional needs, and lifestyle to be sure you select the right one.

Any shopping is hard enough, but especially so when it is flooring. It is almost impossible to make a good decision when you are tired, hungry, and headachy.

It is also difficult to see how the flooring will look when it is in someone else’s building, not your own home.

That is why we have a fully stocked mobile showroom where you can shop in the comfort of your own home and hold the samples up to your lighting, colors, and furnishings. Call us for an appointment.

We service the Greater Indianapolis, IN area including Carmel, Fishers, Westfield, and Castleton, and provide free in-home estimates.

Before you begin shopping, explore your lifestyle

As you are making an appointment for a visit from our mobile showroom, consider carpet needs, such as extra durability or stain and soil resistance and budget.

Know a few terms

  • Density. This is what determines quality, not weight. Density means how closely the fibers are tufted together.
  • Pile. This is how the fibers are looped. You have high pile rugs, such as the shag; low piles, such as the Berber; and some that fall in between, such as Saxony.
  • Padding. This protects the carpet; padding is not all the same, so ask your pro about the best one for your carpet.
  • Fiber. There are naturals, such as wool, as well as synthetics, such as nylon, polyester, olefin, and a relative newcomer, Triexta, which has the stain protectant built right into the fiber.
