So it’s time to come clean. Yup, we got sprung!

“I didn’t know you carried that!” seems to be a recurring statement we hear from new time shoppers of the store.

Because the truth is, we carry more than just carpet and you’d be forgiven for raising an eyebrow given we are called ‘Chillicothe Carpet’!

And while our love of carpeting solutions is sincere, we are always keeping our eyes open for other flooring options to suit different family and household needs.

Especially for those of you who have kids or ‘fur babies’ and need flooring that can withstand some rough treatment and high foot (or paw) traffic!


One word: Dogs!

Did you know that in about 40% of households in the US you’ll find at least one dog? So for those of you with ‘dog-children,’ whether you are building a new home or renovating, having an array of flooring options is essential for pet owners as their furry friends will undoubtedly cause more wear and tear (scratches, stains, dirt) over time.

So when choosing a flooring, think scratch and stain resistant, low in allergens, easy to clean, non-slip, and quiet for your dog-children to walk on. Hint: something like waterproof flooring or vinyl is a very pet-friendly choice.


One word: Kids!

Speaking of wear and tear, floors take the brunt of the activity in a home all year round, but when the kids are around more often during the holidays, life just seems to get a little more hectic for many families. And if you are a parent, you know how rough children can be on floors!

Between spills, accidents, and constant activity, kids can put any flooring surface to the test from the time they start crawling until their teenage years so it’s best to invest in something that will literally stand the test of time!

At Chillicothe Carpet we have an almost overwhelming yet enticing amount of options to choose from. But for now, we’ll focus on what you didn’t know we offered here:

5 Types of Flooring You Didn’t Know We Carried:

1. Hardwood Flooring

2. Laminate Flooring

Increasingly, people are choosing laminate flooring, which combines the authentic look of a natural wood floor with many practical advantages AND a great price. Easy to install, budget-friendly and versatile.

3. Waterproof Flooring

4. Vinyl Flooring

913.jpgVinyl flooring is durable and stands up well to heavy foot traffic. It is comfortable underfoot and reduces noise, which can be important for owners with kids or pets. It is also less expensive than many other flooring options and is easy to install and maintain.

5. Area Rugs

Often an area rug is what makes a home feel more homely. There’s something inviting about a thick-cut rug to play with the kids on, or a pattern that gives the subtle message to all your friends that you know how to decorate a home.
