Carpet in Oshawa, Ontario

Welcoming and warm, carpet is one of the modern world's favourite ways to floor, and grace all kinds of homes and gathering spots. Carpet can give your room an immediate transformation while adding comfort, colour, and texture. We carry a full range of carpeting solutions at Oshawa Carpet One Floor & Home in Oshawa, Ontario. With a strong passion for helping our customers, our mission is to find your perfect carpet, based on taste, budget, and needs.




What Type of Carpet Is Best for My Home?

Modern innovation has given us more carpet options than ever before. Our selection of carpeting is designed to suit nearly any need, taste, or price range under the sun. That means it's always a great idea to take a careful inventory of your flooring requirements before making any final decisions. Carpet piles and fibres should be of first concern when shopping for carpet. These carefully woven threads will determine how your new carpet will perform. Carpet fibres may be made using either natural or synthetic materials such as nylon, polyester, olefin, triexta, or wool.


Nylon is widely considered the strongest synthetic carpet fibre. Nylon is not naturally stain-resistant and usually needs to be treated to protect against spills. 


Polyester is a synthetic fibre. It's less durable than nylon, but also less expensive. It also has natural stain-fighting abilities. 


Triexta is a newer fibre type and is inherently durable. Unlike nylon fibres, it does not need to be treated to be stain resistant. 


Olefin/polypropylene fibres are perfect for decorative rugs and carpets. We suggest putting these types of rugs and carpets in places around your home that are not heavily trafficked. 


Wool is a popular and natural fibre that comes from sheep. Homeowners love wool because it is easy to care for and is a sustainable material. The fibres are dense and help to trap dust and dirt so they can be easily vacuumed up instead of floating in your breathing zone. 


Is There Budget-Friendly Carpet?

Flooring that fits your budget also doesn’t have to be unappealing or impractical. Soft-surface carpet options can vary in brand, pile height, and type of fibre. You can find a wide range of flooring at lots of price points that are both trendy and suits your needs, whether you have a busy household or one with less foot traffic.


While there are a variety of fibres to choose from and a number of softness variations, the type of fibre doesn’t always determine the price. the cost of the carpet. Instead, the durability, features, softness, and thickness all play a role in the cost of the carpet. When deciding on what type of carpet fits your budget and your needs, think about where you want to install the carpet, your home activity level, and your design goals. By considering these factors, you’ll get the carpet your space needs, all while sticking to a budget.


Are There Pet-Friendly Carpet Options?

There once was a time when the presence of pets and small children immediately ruled out the purchase of a new carpet as for many families, choosing a hard surface floor over carpet has traditionally been the better choice. Times have fortunately changed for the better and nowadays, no one has to shun their shag dreams. The best pet-friendly and water-resistant carpets are durable, stain-resistant, easy to clean, resistant to odours, and don't "trap" pet fur or other family messes. You’ll love our many beautiful options, including Tigressa H2O, which is guaranteed to stand up to all types of stains, splashes, and spills. Learn about Everguard® Stain Protection plan as an option too!


Where Can Carpet Be Installed?

Are you desperately seeking flooring that will instantly change your room's overall appearance and mood? Carpeting can accomplish this, and so much more. Whether you're seeking a carpet that can coexist with kids and pets or a carpet that can keep you from hearing noise from neighbours downstairs, we've got a great choice for that. Carpet is a top option for bedrooms, living rooms, children's playrooms, and finished basements. You should avoid it in high-moisture areas like bathrooms and kitchens. We do have waterproof carpets, but these are intended to handle occasional moisture from spills and pet accidents. We also have commercial carpet for busy interiors, as well as custom stair runners and area rugs. 


Can I Create a Custom Area Rug?

If you’re looking for a small change that makes an immense impact, an area rug is a beautiful addition to nearly any interior space. The perfect rug can make an enormous statement while performing many essential daily roles. Protecting your hard-surface floor while adding fantastic colour and texture, your new area rug will warm your feet and inspire your senses. Our expansive inventory of pre-made area rugs and carpeting remnants brings endless customization possibilities. If you can dream it, our professionals can create it.


Where Can I Decorate with Area Rugs

Area rugs can serve many benefits in a room. They are warm and comfortable underfoot, so they can be helpful in family rooms in which children will sit and play.  Wool rugs will be the most practical since they are soft and durable.  Also, area rugs can protect the flooring underneath.  Nylon rugs are best for protection because they are stain-resistant and wear well in high traffic. Area rugs are perfect for college dorm rooms! An area rug can help your dorm room feel more like home and adds style to an otherwise dull space.


Can I Create a Custom Stair Runner?

We offer a wide array of carpet and runner styles in our showroom – from classic beiges that are cozy and timeless to beautiful oriental and contemporary designs. Whether you want to subtly blend your stair runner with the flooring in the rest of your home, or add a pattern that stands out, we can help. Our options include functional features like stain-resistant fibres and crush-resistant pile constructions. Not to mention, our experienced professionals will ensure your stair runner installation looks beautiful, whether you want waterfall carpet stairs, Hollywood, or full coverage. If you’re interested in budget-friendly stair runner ideas, consider using our carpet remnants to build yours. Carpet remnants are discounted pieces that are left from the end of our carpet rolls. Since they’re too small for full-scale projects, we mark them down in price. This doesn’t mean they’re low quality though; many are made from our top luxury brands. We’ll custom measure, cut, and install the remnant to make the best carpet for your steps.

Carpet FAQ


Do you install carpet flooring?

Absolutely! Our team is ready to help you install new carpet in your home!


How soon can you install carpet for me?


We know how important it is to get your installation completed as quickly as possible. The timeline will vary depending on if the product is in-stock or if we need to order it. Make sure to tell our staff if you are looking for a quick turnaround and we will do what we can to make it happen.


What is the weight of carpet?

The weight of a carpet varies from product to product. Generally, most carpet weighs between 35 and 60 ounces, but can range from 20 to 100 ounces. Feel free to ask our experts about the weight of the specific product you are interested in for more specific information. However, it’s important to keep in mind that weight is not a good indicator of carpet quality. Instead, we look at the product specifications to determine what the right carpet for your space is.


Where is this carpet made?

Our carpet is made in North America.


What is the best carpet for stairs?

Nylon or triexta are our favourite options for carpet on staircases due to their strength and safety. These two fibres can repel stains and they are also tough, so they will last longer than other carpet types, especially in higher traffic spaces of your home, like staircases.


What carpet options are good for a curved stair application?

The best carpet options for curved stairs are carpets with no pattern, or a random pattern as we cannot guarantee patterns to match perfectly on curves. Like all stairs, a lower, tighter pile carpet is the best option.


What is the best carpet for bedrooms?

Depending on what you’re looking for, there are many options for bedroom carpeting. If you’re looking for something really soft on the feet, plush style is the way to go. If you want something a little less plush, but still soft, Berber or wool is what we would recommend. And of course, you can always add an area rug to the space!


What are the most popular colours of carpet?

The most popular colours that we have been seeing recently are mid-tone warm greys as they give customers more options with the rest of the décor in the room. Of course, out team will work with you to make sure you’re choosing the best colour for your space.


What is the most durable carpet?

The debate on the most durable carpet has been long running! But we’ve narrowed it down to two options; nylon and triexta. Each type of fibre is very strong and can stand up to high traffic in your space.


What is the most stain resistant carpet?

Triexta carpeting is the best when it comes to stain resistance. We offer great products that can help ward off staining! Stop in to check out our selection of carpets including Innovia and Relax, it’s… LEES ®.


Why do I need underpad?

Underpadding can help with things like sound deadening and softening the feel underfoot further than the carpet alone. An underpad can also act as a moisture barrier as well as help with insulation. The biggest reason why you need a good underpad is that it acts as a shock absorber for your carpet, giving you many extra years of performance from your carpet.


Why can’t I reuse my old underpad?

If you’re spending the money to replace your carpeting, we recommend you replace the underpad as well. You’re making a big investment by replacing your flooring, wouldn’t you want it to feel the softest that it can? An underpad can wear down over time and when you reuse your old one, you may not get the results you’re looking for.


What are the different types of rug binding?

The three most popular options for carpet finishing include binding, serging, and fringing. At Oshawa Carpet One, we provide all of those options, plus we can work with you to select many custom fabric finishes in different widths.
