Your Source for Carpet in Ottawa

While some homeowners prefer hardwood or laminate flooring, there’s nothing quite like the soft, plush feel of carpeting on your bare feet. If you’re renovating or building a brand new home, come to Argos Carpets for an incredible selection of carpet in Ottawa.

Carpet is the foundation for all of your decorating. You’ll make many of your design choices based on the colour of your carpeting. For new installations, you’ll also have to choose the style and fibre construction. Two of the most common types are loop pile and cut pile. Loop pile carpet contains fibres bent into small loops, giving it a lower profile than cut pile, which is softer and denser than its counterpart.

The main types of carpet fibres include nylon, olefin, acrylic, and wool. Nylon is considered to be the most popular, while wool is the more high-end material. Choosing the right carpet can be tricky, but that’s why we’re here to help you decide!

The Tried-and-True Benefits of Carpeting

Before you buy your new carpet in Ottawa, consider the impression you want it to give your guests. Do you want your home to be bright and welcoming? Try a soft, high-pile carpet in a neutral colour. Is making a dramatic statement more your thing? Go bold with black or perfectly pristine with white. Carpet can convey all kinds of looks and show more of your personality. It also does the following:

  • Helps insulate your home
  • Creates a soft surface for children and pets
  • Absorbs sound
  • Prevents slippage

With the proper cleaning and care, your new carpeting should last for 10 years or more. You may decide to replace it sooner due to excess staining, wear and tear or lingering odours. The carpet padding also may start to wrinkle or become uneven, signalling that its condition is deteriorating.

Schedule a Next-Day Installation

With a style and colour selection so vast, you can find carpet to complement virtually any type of décor at Argos Carpets! When you’re looking at samples, please ask about the carpet’s weight and density. A heavier weight means it contains more fibres, which is indicative of a higher quality. A denser carpet with closely packed fibres will also be a better product and last longer.

After you make a purchase, we can typically install your new carpeting the next day. If you can’t make it to our facility to see our products in person, we can bring samples right to your home instead! This will also allow you to see the carpet next to your existing furniture and other décor. Contact us to arrange for this convenient, time-saving service!
