The Advantages of Carpet

SHOP CARPET

Carpet has lots of advantages over other flooring options. It’s soft and warm in winter, and it looks great with any décor style. Carpeting can also trap allergens that are easily vacuumed up, which can make it a hypoallergenic choice for your home.

Looking for a lot of style options? Carpeting has you covered! You can find any carpeting color from dramatic red to neutral tan, bright greens, and calming blues. Many of today’s carpets also come with stain-resistant properties, so they are a breeze to keep looking great!

Choose from thousands of colors, textures, pile heights, and different materials. Whether you’re looking for a neutral Berber style or a plush blue, you’ll be able to find the carpeting for you. Comfortable and warm carpeting offers endless and unique design possibilities!

  • Cut Pile and Loop Pile Carpeting
    • Dolphin Carpet in Ft. Lauderdale, FL can help you choose the perfect carpeting type! Some of the most common styles include cut pile, loop pile, and cut and loop pile.
  • Cut Pile
    • The most popular style, cut pile, has sheared fiber strands with exposed ends. Cut pile comes in a variety of thicknesses and lengths, with different amounts of fiber twist. Carpeting with tighter twists has the most durability.
  • Loop Pile
    • Carpeting of this type has tightly twisted loops that withstand matting and crushing. It often features unique textures and patterns. Loop pile carpeting is slightly less durable than cut pile since pulled loops can snag and damage your carpet.
  • Cut and loop pile
    • Like it sounds, this style is a combination of sheared and looped strands. Cut and loop pile boasts a unique style with lots of texture.

Carpeting for Every Style

Ft. Lauderdale Dolphin Carpet offers a large variety of carpeting options, from dramatic colors to neutral hues. Cut pile, loop pile, different colors, and various textures; no matter your unique style, you can find carpeting to match your aesthetic.

The Advantages of Hardwood Flooring

SHOP HARDWOOD

No matter your décor style or the type of home you live in, you should consider hardwood flooring as an option for your next renovation. It’s a long-lasting, durable choice that never goes out of style. Modern innovations have led to hardwood flooring products with waterproof capabilities, meaning that there are styles you can install in any room of your home.

Solid hardwood can be refinished many times throughout its natural lifespan. Even engineered wood can be refinished once. This means you can change the look of your floors or repair unwanted wear. However, you may choose to leave that wear, which is sought after by some home buyers as part of the unique character of real wood floors.

Hardwood floors are overall easy to maintain, easy to decorate around, and easy on the eyes. Learn more about our hardwood options from brands like Shaw Floors, Mohawk, Anderson Tuftex & more when you visit Dolphin Carpet in Ft. Lauderdale, FL

The Best Rooms for Hardwood Floors

Hardwood floors can work well in any room in your home. However, different products are better suited for different areas, so know what type of hardwood floor you’re buying before you make a final decision.

For example, solid hardwood floors are durable, but they’re also quite rigid and tend to expand and contract with changes in a room’s moisture level. For that reason, they should not be installed below grade, meaning you won’t see many basements with solid hardwood floors.

Engineered hardwood floors are more flexible thanks to their layered construction, so they can be installed in finished basements and other rooms where they may be exposed to some humidity. Whether you choose hardwood for your living room, dining room, or bedroom, hardwood flooring is a great way to make a lasting statement.

Choosing a Hardwood Flooring Style

You’ll find natural hardwood flooring in a wide array of different looks. Popular wood species for flooring include oak, maple, hickory and cherry, though you’ll find many other domestic and exotic woods when you shop at Ft. Lauderdale Dolphin Carpet.

Each species offers unique colors and grain patterns. You’ll find pale, light woods and rich dark woods from trusted brands like Dolphin, Mohawk, COREtec and more. Our team can install your new floor in a traditional straight or staggered pattern, or in an artistic chevron, herringbone or parquet layout. We can’t wait to work with you!

The Benefits of Laminate

SHOP LAMINATE

There are many benefits to laminate flooring, including its durability, ease of upkeep, and laminate’s resistance to fading and staining. Laminate is often used in kitchens, living rooms, bathrooms, and more. Visit Dolphin Carpet in Ft. Lauderdale for a large selection of laminate from top brands like Mohawk, Mannington, Dolphin and more.

Laminate is also a great choice if you’re looking for a green, earth-friendly option. Laminate flooring is not made from old-growth but recycled materials. Fashionable, eco-friendly, and affordable laminate has so many advantages!

Where to Use Laminate Flooring in Your Home

There are many places you can use laminate flooring throughout your home, including the kitchen, living room, bedroom. Easy-care laminate is water-, mold-, and mildew-resistant, so it can be used in a variety of rooms where traditional hardwood floors might not work well. With laminate, you can consider laundry rooms, mudrooms, and more!

Laminate also has a lot of different style looks, which makes it ideal for any design aesthetic.  Ready to start looking for laminate flooring? Ft. Lauderdale Dolphin Carpet carries a large selection of laminate flooring!

Chic Laminate Styles

Chic and stylish, laminate is available in a lot of different styles. You can find wood looks and stone looks that'll look great in any room in your home. The secret? It's a high-resolution photograph depicting wood, stone, or tile, right beneath the laminate's tough wear layer. The result is gorgeous flooring that looks wonderful with traditional, modern, or any type of décor.

Laminate flooring comes in many colors and textures. Laminate can mimic not only the look but also the different feel of pricier flooring. Hardwood styles offer smooth, hand-scraped, and brushed surfaces to feel like the real thing. Whether you're looking for a dark wood-look in your bedroom or a light stone-look in the kitchen, laminate flooring has you covered!

Is Tile Right for You?

SHOP TILE

Dolphin Carpet in Fort Lauderdale, FL can help you decide if tile is right for your home. Tile is a durable and timeless choice for floors and walls, with lots of functionality and variety to boot. Tile’s cleaning and maintenance requirements are not too time-consuming, and in exchange for your effort, you’ll get a classic and elegant look in your kitchen, bathroom, living room, or any space in your home!

Create a work of art with a mosaic design or an intricate tile pattern for a splash of personality in your entryway or your kitchen’s backsplash. Tile holds up very well over time, and it can even increase your home’s value.

Ceramic vs. Porcelain Tile

What the difference between these two tile options? Ceramic tile and porcelain tile are both made from clay and fired in a kiln. One main difference is that porcelain is fired at a much higher temperature, making it denser and less porous. This leads to extra durability. Porcelain also starts from clay that is smoother and more refined than ceramic tile clay.

Both types of tile are a good choice for many rooms in your home, including kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms. Porcelain tile is a bit more expensive, but it is a bit tougher than its ceramic counterpart. And while both work well in moisture-prone rooms, porcelain is a bit more water-resistant due to its dense nature.

Where & How to Use Tile

Tile is a great option for kitchen backsplashes, showers, bathroom floors, and laundry rooms. But a tile mosaic focal point behind a wet bar, tile across a kitchen island, or even a tile statement wall can really add some uniqueness to your home.

Tile can be placed in intricate designs, and there are a variety of grout colors to really add some extra style. Our brands Daltile, American Olean, Shaw Floors, Mohawk, and more offer a number of different options from bright white subway tile for your kitchen to marble look tile for a fancy mudroom.

How & Where to Use Luxury Vinyl Flooring in Your Home

SHOP LUXURY VINYL FLOORING

Unlike most types of flooring, you’ll find that luxury vinyl can be used effectively in almost any room throughout the home. This opens up the possibility of adding the look and feel of natural wood or tile flooring to spaces where they wouldn’t normally be possible.

If you want to incorporate luxury vinyl into your kitchen, bathroom, laundry room or finished basement, be sure to select a waterproof product. This will help you avoid damage from moisture and spills.

Luxury vinyl tile and luxury vinyl plank are both excellent choices in any room that sees a lot of regular foot traffic. This feature also makes them well-suited to living rooms and hallways. Add a tile look or wood look to any room with a luxury product from one of our favorite brands, including COREtec, Dolphin, Mohawk, Pergo & More.

Installing Luxury Vinyl Flooring

Luxury vinyl flooring can be installed over virtually any existing surface. If your subfloor is concrete or if you have existing tile or hardwood, vinyl can float overtop.

You’ll find that, as with any type of flooring, a professional installation is recommended. Ft. Lauderdale Dolphin Carpet has vinyl flooring installers on-hand to assist you with your home build or renovation.

If you do prefer a DIY job, however, luxury vinyl can be one of the simplest types of flooring to install on your own. Simply follow the instructions provided by your manufacturer. Typically, you’ll be dealing with a click-and-lock installation, which utilizes a system of tongues and grooves that simply snap together to create a tightly sealed surface.

What is the best way to clean luxury vinyl flooring?

One of the biggest appeals of luxury vinyl flooring is the ease with which it can be cleaned. We often recommend luxury vinyl to busy homeowners who have less time in their schedule to devote to flooring maintenance, since all you typically need to clean vinyl is a broom or a dust mop and a damp mop for occasional tougher messes.

In the event of a spill, luxury vinyl is designed to be stain- and moisture-resistant. Most messes can simply be wiped up with a clean cloth. Note that stain-resistance does not equate to being completely stain-proof. Be sure not to let messes sit for too long.

Have any questions about the proper care & maintenance of your new luxury vinyl floors? Contact the team here at Dolphin Carpet in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Our staff is thoroughly knowledgeable about the products we carry, and we’re always available to lend our expertise.

Where to Use Waterproof Flooring in Your Home

SHOP WATERPROOF FLOORING

Unlike most types of flooring, you’ll find that waterproof flooring can be used effectively in almost any room throughout the home. This opens up the possibility of adding the look and feel of natural wood or tile flooring to spaces where they wouldn’t normally be possible.

If you want to incorporate waterproof floors into your kitchen, bathroom, laundry room or finished basement, this will help you avoid damage from moisture and spills.

Waterproof flooring is an excellent option in any room that sees a lot of regular foot traffic. This feature also makes them well-suited to living rooms and hallways. Add a tile look or wood look to any room with a waterproof product from one of our favorite brands, including COREtec, Mohawk, and more.

Installing Waterproof Flooring

Waterproof Vinyl flooring can be installed over many existing surfaces. If your subfloor is concrete or if you have existing tile or hardwood, waterproof vinyl can float overtop.

You’ll find that, as with any type of flooring, a professional installation is recommended. Ft. Lauderdale Dolphin Carpet has vinyl flooring installers on-hand to assist you with your home build or renovation.

If you do prefer a DIY job, however, waterproof luxury vinyl can be one of the simplest types of flooring to install on your own. Simply follow the instructions provided by your manufacturer. Typically, you’ll be dealing with a click-and-lock installation, which utilizes a system of tongues and grooves that simply snap together to create a tightly sealed surface.
