What type of carpet is right for you?

SHOP CARPET


When choosing the right carpet, there are a couple of things to consider. If you want carpet that resists foot traffic, consider berber carpet. Textured carpet gives a unique patterned look while making it easier to clean dirt, mud, spills, and pet accidents. Plush carpets, twisted Saxony carpets, friezes, shag carpets, and cable carpets are all cut pile constructions offer comfort and elevated style but will show footprints and will take more effort to keep clean.

Best places for carpet in your home

Carpet is soft and impact absorbing, meaning it’s an excellent choice for living rooms, bedrooms, kids’ rooms, playrooms, nurseries, and basements. Today’s carpet products are stain-resistant and durable, making them ideal even in active households with pets. You may also opt to install carpet tile, which performs well in areas with heavy foot traffic.

Decorating with stylish carpet

With tens of thousands of styles, pile heights, colors, and materials to choose from, carpeting is one of the most versatile type of flooring. It offers a timeless element to any room and can be paired with almost any color scheme. The comfort carpets offer and the design possibilities they bring are endless. At Dolphin Carpet in Davie, FL, we carry a vast selection to suite every one of our customers’ unique personal tastes.

Why Choose Hardwood Flooring?

SHOP HARDWOOD


Looking for new flooring that combines timeless beauty, design versatility, and value? Hardwood floors are a great choice for any home, offering style that never goes out of style. The only type of flooring that gets better with age, the character of well-kept natural hardwood floors can also increase your home’s resale value.

Whether you add hardwood to your living room, dining room or bedroom, you’ll find that it makes a statement. Depending on the style you choose, you’ll find that hardwood is as much at home in a modern setting as it is in a rustic farmhouse.

Hardwood also offers easy maintenance, with cleaning as simple as a regular sweeping or vacuuming. For more information about hardwood flooring products, installation & care, talk to our experts here at our Davie / Plantation location.

Engineered Hardwood vs Solid Hardwood Flooring

As you shop for new hardwood floors, you’ll likely notice two distinct categories: engineered hardwood and solid hardwood. What’s the difference?

Think of solid hardwood as your traditional hardwood floor. Each plank is cut from a single, solid piece of wood. It’s typically the more expensive of the two, able to be sanded and refinished several times throughout its lifespan. Popular species include oak, maple, hickory and cherry.

Engineered wood looks similar on the surface but is actually a high-quality plywood material fused with a thin layer of hardwood. It can only be refinished once because of the thinness of its surface. However, its layered construction allows for it to be installed below grade where solid hardwood cannot be.

Popular Hardwood Styles & Looks for the Home

With products made from so many different wood species, hardwood offers a wide array of different colors and styles. You’ll find tones ranging from pale wood to dark wood and everything in between. Textures can be smooth or full of natural knots and grains, making each plank a unique work of art.

While you’ll most commonly see long wood planks, you can also arrange hardwood planks into layouts like chevron, herringbone or parquet designs. Another option that’s growing in popularity is bamboo flooring, which offers the sleek look of hardwood in an eco-friendly package.

Is Laminate Flooring Right for You?

SHOP LAMINATE


Laminate flooring is an excellent choice for many households that want the look and feel of genuine hardwood or stone flooring but don’t want the expensive price tag. Laminate offers stylish good looks, as well as easy cleaning and maintenance. There are many styles and textures to choose from, and it’ll fit in just about any room in your home.

In addition to its versatility, laminate flooring is also stain-resistant, water-resistant, and mildew-resistant due to its tough top layer. It also offers low maintenance cleaning, with no need for varnishing or waxing. We have a wide variety of laminate styles, textures, and colors to choose from.

Laminate Textures & Styles

Versatile laminate flooring comes in so many textures and styles! Whether you are going for a wood look or a tile look floor. This floor’s realistic look comes from a high-resolution hardwood, tile, or stone image layer right beneath the wear layer.

Colors can include grey, brown, white, and more, so you’ll always be able to find the perfect look to match your existing or planned décor. And if you’re looking to replicate hardwood flooring, laminate comes in different textures like smooth, hand-scraped, and brushed to feel like the real thing, too.

Advantages of Laminate Flooring

Laminate boasts excellent durability, offers easy cleaning & maintenance, and it also resists staining and fading. It’s a great option in kitchens, living rooms, bedrooms, and more. We offer a wide selection from top brands like Mannington, Mohawk, Dolphin and more.

Plus, if you’re looking for an eco-friendly option that won’t break the bank, laminate flooring is the solution! Laminate is a green option because its typically made from recycled materials and not old growth or unsustainable forests. Stylish, eco-friendly, and affordable laminate flooring has so much going for it!

Tile is an Elegant Option

SHOP TILE


Elegant tile can make a statement in your home, and it is not that hard to keep looking its best. Primarily used in kitchens and bathrooms, tile is also a great option for laundry rooms, mudrooms, and outdoor living areas. Adding tile to your interior can also add additional value to your home!

Our Davie / Plantation location offers many tile options, as well as expert and professional installation. Tile is unique because it can be used on the floor, the wall, and more. Classic, beautiful tile comes in so many colors and styles. Use it in your home to make a real impression.

Aside from its great looks, tile is a very functional flooring choice. It’s durable and requires a fairly simple cleaning and maintenance schedule. From wood-look tile to porcelain to ceramic, we can help you find the best tile for your home!

The Different Types of Tile

Tile includes natural stone includes granite, marble, limestone, slate, and more. These attractive options can create a focal point in your home, but they can be an expensive option. But this type of tile can increase your property’s value. Natural stone requires a sealant that needs to be reapplied every so often.

Ceramic and porcelain tile are both created with clay, but porcelain is fired at a higher temperature, making it less porous and more durable. Ceramic tile comes in many different shapes and colors and can add a pop of personality to your space.

Both porcelain and ceramic tile are great options for many rooms in your home. Both work well in moisture-prone rooms, but porcelain offers a bit more water resistance due to its less porous nature. Brands like Emser, Marazzi, and Dolphin have tile options for almost any space in your home.

Best Places for Tile in Your Home

Rooms that are moisture-prone, like kitchens and bathrooms, are great options for ceramic, porcelain, and stone tile. From a marble-look floor to a porcelain tile shower to a subway tile backsplash, you can’t go wrong.

Less obvious places to use tile in your home include a tile design around a fireplace, an accent wall, or even a tile design in the entryway. Tile also works well in laundry rooms and outdoor living spaces. Tile can add so much personality to your home! The possibilities are endless. We can help you decide on all your tile flooring, wall, and accent choices.

The benefits of luxury vinyl flooring

SHOP VINYL


There’s a good reason for luxury vinyl’s growing popularity as a floor covering. These floors are highly durable and able to resist scratching, denting, fading, staining & moisture. Some are even waterproof, making cleaning luxury vinyl a breeze.

Vinyl floors are ideal for homes with pets, as pet claws and nails won’t take as much of a toll on their damage-resistant wear layer. You can install vinyl in your kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, living room, basement or anywhere you want a beautiful, functional surface.

Whether you’re after the wood look of luxury vinyl plank or you want to emulate a ceramic or stone tile look with luxury vinyl tile, there is no shortage of options when it comes to luxury vinyl design. Choose from products in brown, grey, beige and a variety of other colorways.

How is luxury vinyl flooring installed?

While we always recommend a professional installation and have vinyl flooring installers on-hand to assist you with your renovation, it’s worth noting that luxury vinyl is one of the easiest types of flooring to install.

Most modern vinyl styles feature a click-and-lock installation method, with a system of tongues and grooves that simply snap together in a tightly sealed surface. You can install luxury vinyl flooring over ceramic tile, hardwood, and concrete with a floating installation.

How to clean luxury vinyl flooring

We recommend luxury vinyl in busy households where you have less time in your schedule to devote to maintenance of your floors. All that is required for luxury vinyl is a simple routine cleaning at least weekly. This can involve sweeping or dust mopping, with a more involved damp-mopping to deal with tougher messes as needed.

Because luxury vinyl resists stains and moisture, cleaning spills is as simple as quickly wiping up the mess with a clean cloth. Be sure not to let a spill sit for too long, as luxury vinyl is not completely stain-proof.

If you ever have questions about the proper care and maintenance of your flooring, contact us at anytime. Our staff has an intimate knowledge of the products we carry, and we’re always on hand to provide our expertise.

Advantages of Area Rugs

SHOP AREA RUGS


Area rugs are used and appreciated for a variety of reasons. From pure self-expression to practical function in design, area rugs are a simple and versatile tool that carry many advantages over bare flooring.

For starters, area rugs can help to ground a space, pulling together different design elements such as color and décor into a cohesive design. In the living room, you can anchor your furniture with a rug to create a cozy, intimate seating arrangement. In the dining room, add an area rug underneath your table to frame the space. Rugs also work well in the bathroom or kitchen to protect your floors and provide you with warmth & comfort.

Use area rugs on top of any indoor or outdoor flooring surface. Place small rugs or mats at your entryways to catch dirt before it gets tracked into your home. Place runners in long hallways to dampen the sound of footsteps. No matter your needs, you’ll find an area rug at Dolphin Carpet to meet it!

What is the best brand of area rugs?

We provide only the highest quality flooring solutions from reputable brands we trust. When it comes to area rugs, there are so many potential uses that need to be matched with your individual design tastes and functional needs. For that reason, there’s no one brand we can point to for every customer and call the “best.”

However, there are some well-known names we offer that you can keep your eye out for. Couristan, Dalyn, Kaleen, Karastan, Mohawk, Nourison, Oriental Weavers & Surya are just a few. Talk to a representative from our Davie, FL showroom to learn more about the wide range of rug options we have to offer.

Area Rug Materials, Textures & Styles

As with our brands, we have a practically limitless array of rug styles available for you. The various materials from which rugs are constructed and the ways in which they’re woven can impact the look, feel and function of the final product. Below are just a few of the options we have available to you.

  • Nylon rug fibers are soft and durable, with the ability to resist stains, mold, mildew and other types of wear. A high-end synthetic, nylon can last for more than a decade with proper care.

 

  • Polypropylene (Olefin) is often used as a synthetic wool substitute. It’s loved for its stain resistance and affordability.

 

  • Polyester rugs often feature vibrant, fade-resistant colors. These rugs are hypoallergenic and sometimes created using recycled materials.

 

  • Wool is a natural, long-lasting rug material that’s among the softest options available. It’s often blended with synthetics to reduce costs and provide additional durability, although pure wool with no additives is an excellent choice for those with allergies of sensitivities to chemicals.

 

While material can have a big impact on rug performance, much of a rug’s appeal comes from its appearance and texture. You’ll find rugs with thick, plush shag pile or those with a very thin construction. Styles range from rustic farmhouse looks to rich, traditional tapestries and sleek, geometric modern pieces. The look that’s best for your space is entirely up to your taste, but our team here at Dolphin Carpet is happy to help you determine the right fit.
