Great versatility comes along with carpet

There are many reasons that make carpet the most popular flooring in America right now. From stunning good looks to amazing benefits, you simply can’t go wrong in choosing this material for your home. What’s more, it’s an easily affordable floor covering, at any budget level. You’ll be surprised to find that it may already cover many, if not all, of your stated requirements in a floor covering for your own home. We’re going to look at a few more excellent benefits to this great material.

At Shore Side Carpet & Flooring, we bring along more than 20 years of flooring experience as well as a dedicated and professional flooring staff. We can help you find exactly what you need, with the perfect combination of benefits, and all you have to do is visit our showroom in Stevensville, MD. From there, we serve Stevensville, Annapolis, Ellicott City, Columbia, and Pasadena, and we look very forward to serving you as well.

Carpet for most of your rooms

Carpet floors go great in just about every room. Bedrooms, dens, living rooms, and studies are all excellent placements for this material. Anywhere a warm and inviting atmosphere is desired, this flooring material can quickly make it so. At the same time, it provides an additional element to your decor, which can truly bring an entire look together, quickly and easily.

Built-in stain protection is a fairly new benefit in carpet, but one you will quickly come to love as a favorite when choosing it for your own spaces. This stain resistance makes it impossible for a spill to soak into the flooring fiber, while also making the material much easier to clean. If you have pets or children, this will be an absolute must, especially once you experience the magically profound protection at your fingertips.

Hypoallergenic fibers is another fairly new feature, in which allergens such as dander and pollen are snatched from the air and held until you vacuum. You’ll breathe easier knowing there are no dangerous allergens to set off an attack.

Carpet can even create a safer atmosphere, especially if you have either very young or very old residents in your home. Since it provides a much stabler surface to walk on, there will be fewer walking aids that slip away. If a fall does actually happen, the soft surface can keep serious injuries to a minimum, or even prevent them altogether.


Carpet is the most popular and common flooring in the United States. That is because it is extremely affordable and easy to install. Aside from the economic advantages, it also helps keep your home warmer because it adds thermal resistance, is extremely versatile from a design standpoint, has the lowest levels of VOC emissions of any flooring type, reduces noise and provides padding for slips and falls. It is no wonder that people in Maryland, as well as the rest of the country, choose carpeting.

Shore Side Carpet & Flooring has over twenty years of experience in the flooring business and in that time we’ve developed relationships with the finest manufacturers around. That means we have a vast selection of superior quality and beautiful carpeting to choose from. The best part is, we have a showroom, or we can bring the selection to you. If you are looking for new flooring options, we’ll send a design consultant to you, armed with samples and ideas, so you can see firsthand what new carpeting looks like right next to your current interior design. That is why we are the number one choice in Maryland for quality carpeting.

Smart Strand Carpet

SmartStrand is the ONLY carpet with built-in stain and soil resistance that will NEVER wear or wash off. Here are some of its most notable benefits:
  • Superior durability and softness for peace of mind and comfort
  • Lifetime stain and soil resistance that’s built in, not sprayed on
  • Protection that will never wear or wash off like other carpets
  • Easy to clean with water or mild detergent
  • Environmentally friendly, because it’s made in part from renewable resources

Smart Strand Silk Carpet

SmartStrand Silk with DuPont Sorona is the only premium soft carpet with built-in stain and soil protection that never wears or washes off. With SmartStrand Silk, you can expect:
  • Luxurious softness due to 3X the fiber of ordinary soft nylon.
  • Preferred 5 to 1 over premium soft nylon.
  • Dirt-Resistant and Easy to Clean

Nylon Carpet Fiber

Nylon has been the most commonly used carpet fiber since the early 1960’s. In overall performance characteristics, nylon is the most versatile of all fibers, providing excellent flexibility in creating a variety of carpet styles. Nylon can be found in a wide range of both cut pile and loop pile styles. It is durable, resilient, and receptive to dyeing for color versatility and uniformity; many new nylon yarn systems are also exceptionally soft. Though not inherently stain resistant, most nylon carpets feature a stain-resist carpet treatment for protection against household spills and stains.

Polyester Carpet Fibers

Polyester offers exceptional softness and color clarity, and it is also naturally stain and fade resistant. While polyester is not as inherently resilient as nylon, carpets made of polyester fiber will perform well if appropriately constructed. Thanks to technological advances in yarn processing and improved carpet construction techniques, polyester’s purported weakness as a high-performance fiber has been largely overcome. When properly twisted and tufted, today’s polyester yarns perform much better than in years past.

Polyester styles are good choices for low to medium traffic settings such as bedrooms. Polyester carpet styles typically represent good value.

If you are looking for an affordable way to truly impact your interior design, or you have a new construction in need of flooring, carpeting has a lot to offer. Call Shore Side Carpet & Flooring and explore what our high quality carpet sales and installation can do for you.
