Trusted Saskatoon Flooring Pros Western Carpet and Hardwood in Saskatchewan

Western Carpet One Floor & Home is a locally owned and operated flooring store servicing Saskatoon and area since 1974. Their stunning showroom offers a comfortable shopping experience for every type of flooring. Whether it is Carpet, Hardwood, Ceramic Tile, Laminate flooring, Cork, Sheet vinyl, or area rugs, you will find it at Western Carpet One Floor & Home a Trusted Saskatoon Flooring StoreIn their latest Saskatoon flooring tip, Western Carpet discusses how hardwood is a good option even in Saskatchewan's harsh climate. 

Being a business owner in the beautiful Province of Saskatchewan, I am very familiar with the extreme weather challenges that we face throughout the year. Although we are extremely resilient as a society, our homes, and the products we put in them may not always be.

A question we get quite often is “Is hardwood a good option in our climate?”

The answer is YES - but under the right circumstances. The truth is hardwood is a natural product that requires a specific temperature and humidity level to be maintained throughout the year. This can be difficult to manage in Saskatchewan with our very dry winters, humid summers, and rainstorms. Squeaking, gapping, cupping, delaminating, and splitting are all real challenges that present themselves if the right steps are not taken. With that being said, there is a way to put a beautiful hardwood floor in your home.

Why and how hardwood can be a great option in Saskatchewan:

  • First and foremost, nothing can replicate the beauty, feel and texture that a real hardwood floor can provide.
  • As a granite counter-top can increase the value of your home, so can the flooring you choose. Hardwood instills a value to your property that no other floor can provide. If you look at a realtor’s fact sheet, they will almost always point out if the flooring is a hardwood which creates a real and at times perceived value.
  • Maintaining consistent humidity in the home is a must. To do this you need to have a high-quality humidifier installed on your furnace which allows for humidity to flow through your home as the furnace is running. We also recommend running your furnace fan throughout the summer to help with airflow and reduce humidity levels.
  • Hardwood flooring has evolved over the years. For example, solid hardwood is less and less a requested product in Saskatchewan with the trend moving towards engineered hardwood. This type of hardwood provides more stability and resiliency in our climate along with longer and wider board lengths.
  • The installation of hardwood has also evolved. When a hardwood floor that is wider than 5” is installed, using a glue assist method is a requirement by most manufacturers (here at Western Carpet One, we will do it on all 5” or wider boards for ALL manufacturers). Using a specific type of construction adhesive, a bead of glue is applied under the wood that creates another layer of stability.
  • Not all hardwood flooring is made equal. We recommend purchasing your flooring from a reputable retailer that provides reputable brands. The fact is you get what you pay for - as in any industry there is always someone willing to try and make a product cheaper. In many cases to make something cheaper requires that something gets left out. The construction of a quality engineered hardwood is a craft that requires much skill (BUYER BEWARE).
  • As not all hardwood is created equal, not all installations are equal. The knowledge and skill of a professional hardwood installer cannot easily be replicated. I recommend choosing a reputable store that can provide you with a warranty and peace of mind that your flooring will be installed as per the manufacturer’s recommendations.

In closing, seek professionals to educate, recommend, and install your hardwood flooring. If done correctly you will have a floor that is natural, beautiful, and timeless. If you are looking for a knowledgeable sales team with top-end products and experienced installers for your next hardwood project then please consider our team at Western Carpet One.

Trusted Saskatoon Flooring Pros at Western Carpet One Explain Why Choose Stain-Resistant Carpet


Western Carpet One Floor & Home is a locally owned and operated servicing Saskatoon and area since 1974. They are a full-service store offering no charge estimates and full installation on all flooring products. A newly expanded stunning showroom offers a comfortable shopping experience for every type of flooring. Whether it is Carpet, Hardwood, Ceramic Tile, Laminate flooring, Cork, Sheet vinyl or area rugs, you will find it at Western Carpet One Floor & Home a Trusted Saskatoon Flooring Store. In their latest Saskatoon flooring tip Western Carpet shares why you should have stain-resistant carpet.

2020’s top flooring trends are all about combining both style and practicality. After all, what better way to enhance the look and feel of your home than by choosing products that work well with your life and your design goals? By incorporating both together, you’ll be happier, you’ll have more time, and you’ll fall more in love every day with your next flooring investment.




With improving technologies and ever-changing styles, it may seem like there are tons of products to choose from, but there’s one top option that never goes out of style: comfortable, functional carpet. We’ve put together a list of the top reasons why stain-resistant carpet could be just what you’re looking for this year. 


Stain Resistant Carpet and Tough Spills:

One of the many reasons why stain-resistant carpet is increasingly popular is because of its ability to handle nearly any spill, stain, or accident. While there’s no telling when or where a mishap will occur, you can bet that stain-resistant carpet will have your back. Mud tracked in from a guest’s shoes, babies throwing their cheerios on the ground, and dropping a glass of milk won’t wreak havoc when you choose one of our stain-resistant carpets. Unlike in year’s past where a liquid spill would mean a lifetime stain or a professional steam cleaning required, today’s carpet will be ready for whenever life happens – just one of the many reasons to opt for stain-resistant carpet this year! 


Durability of Stain Resistant Carpet:

Not only is stain-resistant carpet prepared for your life as far as spills and stains, but it’s also ready to take on the tough wear and tear of foot traffic, kids, and pets. With extra-durable fibers that are built-in to carpet from our exclusive brand, Relax, it’s…Lees®, you can trust that your home is ready for the most demanding days you’ve ever experienced. Days where puppies, babies, and teenagers make messes all at the same time won’t stand a chance against taking down these stain-resistant carpets. 


Low-maintenance Stain Resistant Carpet:

Who wants to spend hours taking care of a home? When you have other plans for the day, keeping your home in tip-top shape should be quick and easy. Consider stain-resistant carpets because they are low-maintenance, easy to clean, and provide effortless beauty to your space without the excessive cleaning routine. Thanks to the added stain-resistance in these carpets, you’ll be able to clean up spills that sit on top of the surface, rather than having to scrub deep into the fibers and carpet backing below. This makes for a simple cleaning regimen that won’t leave you exhausted at the end of a long day. 


Soft Stain Resistant Carpet:

Because stain-resistant carpet is a soft-surface flooring material, you can expect that it will add warmth, comfort, and luxury to any room. With added softness like the exclusive Innovia Xtreme Clean™ Dream technology, you’ll feel cozy and comfy in any room you install carpet. Your feet will thank you for a soft place to land at the beginning or end of any day, and your home may even experience improved energy efficiency. In the colder months, you won’t have to worry about wearing slippers or socks, as your soft stain resistant carpet will ensure that your floors are just as warm as they need to be. 


Stylish Designs:

While it’s true that stain-resistant carpet provides the practicality that most homes need, it’s also true that the available designs are made to complement nearly any design style. From modern, eclectic styles to bold, bright designs and everything in between, you may be surprised to find that you can achieve the design you’ve always dreamed of while also increasing the functionality of your home. You no longer have to choose between one or the other–you can get both!


Versatility of Installation:

Unlike when carpet first came out into the flooring world, today’s carpet can be installed in a multitude of areas. Because stain-resistant carpets are equipped with stain-fighting technology, increased durability, and impressive strength, they can be installed as not only a feature room flooring but also a whole-home solution. Living rooms, bedrooms, hallways, staircases, dining rooms, and offices are just a few examples of where stain-resistant carpet could be perfect for your home. Do you have a playroom for your young children? You can teach them how to crawl and walk on carpet, allowing them to experience a soft place to land, and you can do it all without worrying about what will happen if they spill their milk, which is seemingly inevitable! 


Finding ways to create a space that reflects not only your design goals, but also the needs of you, your family, and your pets, is increasingly important in today’s world. When it comes to selecting just one product, we recommend taking a look at your home’s activity levels, your desired look, and the features that you need out of your flooring. Stain-resistant carpet checks many of the most-needed boxes for homes that want to stay stylish, while also contributing to the overall warmth, visual appeal and practicality of a home. So, what is the best stain-resistant carpet for your home? Check out our exclusive brands, Relax, it’s Lees® and Innovia Touch Xtreme Clean™ to get a glimpse of the beauty and efficiency you could have in your space.

Trusted Saskatoon Flooring Experts at Western Carpet One Design Your Home with Versatility in Mind


Western Carpet One Floor & Home is a locally owned and operated servicing Saskatoon and area since 1974. They are a full-service store offering no charge estimates and full installation on all flooring products. A newly expanded stunning showroom offers a comfortable shopping experience for every type of flooring. Whether it is Carpet, Hardwood, Ceramic Tile, Laminate flooring, Cork, Sheet vinyl or area rugs, you will find it at Western Carpet One Floor & Home a Trusted Saskatoon Flooring Store. In their latest Saskatoon flooring tip Western Carpet shares how they can help design your home.

To date, 2020 has put many things into perspective. The pandemic has caused many to reflect on how we live in and use our homes. Indeed, being catapulted into a new lifestyle—particularly when change happens quickly—really makes us question and evaluate the choices we have made.


Having a versatile home is more important now than ever. Life has been known to throw us curveballs, and adapting to them is nothing new. Whether it is an adult child who decides to now move back home, or a change in physical abilities as we age, there will always be surprises around every corner. For this reason, our homes need to remain adaptable, flexible and always functional, regardless of what life throws our way.


Building or remodelling a home that can evolve with you will maximize your property investment. An adaptable home is not only useful for the residents who currently live there (you!) but it also works wonders for the home's resale value when you choose to sell. Start by thinking about how your life can change over the next five, 10 or 15 years, and how your home can grow as you do.


Some of our clients ask us for permanent solutions to very temporary pain points that they experience during relatively short periods of their lives. A great example is young children. We often design spaces for families, and given that we also have families of our own, we understand the evolution of a growing child and the different stages that your home needs to cater to. The key is finding the right balance between what works now for your family and what will also still work for the family a few years down the road.



Multi-Functional Spare Room

Whether you’re living in a small condo or a five-bedroom home, maximizing your living area is always a smart move. For example, the guest bedroom. Do you host overnight stays often enough to warrant a dedicated room 365 days a year? Rather than giving up prime real estate for a room that will only be used twice a year, consider giving the space a dual purpose, such as a home-office-and-guest-room, all in one.


Bringing multi-function to the room will accommodate both occasional guests when they drop in, while offering year-round use for additional activities such as work, exercise, relaxation, crafts, sleeping, playing or storage.


Pro Tip: Murphy beds are one of our favorite multi-function pieces, and they've come a long way from the functional but aesthetically challenged design of the past. Modern styles offer both comfort and style, and can be easily integrated into custom cabinetry, seamlessly blending into the existing decor.


Forward-Thinking Bathroom

Adaptability means looking ahead to the future and anticipating the household's needs. For those who are reaching their retirement years and plan to age in place, the bathroom is ground zero for adaptation. Some thoughtful changes can bring peace of mind when elderly guests come to visit, or being prepared for when you might need a helping hand.


Contrary to popular belief, there are many ways to incorporate safety into a bathroom without making it look like something straight from a retirement home. Grab bars can be disguised as sleek towel bars. Instead of doorknobs, install levers. Flooring material can be selected for its non-slip properties. And barrier-free walk-in showers are actually aesthetically more pleasing than those with a sill.

Pro Tip: Consider integrated options such as safety features at the beginning of the construction process. For example, installing a grab bar horizontally instead of on a diagonal is only feasible if the wall is reinforced before it’s closed. Because studs are placed 16 inches apart, in order for an 18- or 24-inch grab bar to be secured to a stud, it usually has to be installed on an angle. Working with a design professional during the planning process will ensure your needs are factored into the design from the outset.

An evolving home is as much about having forethought as it is about creative flair and technical know-how. Working with a professional designer will ensure your needs are being met, both now and into the future.

8 Reasons To Choose Carpet by Western Carpet One Trusted Saskatoon Flooring Experts


Western Carpet One Floor & Home is a locally owned and operated servicing Saskatoon and area since 1974. They are a full-service store offering no charge estimates and full installation on all flooring products. A newly expanded stunning showroom offers a comfortable shopping experience for every type of flooring. Whether it is Carpet, Hardwood, Ceramic Tile, Laminate flooring, Cork, Sheet vinyl or area rugs, you will find it at Western Carpet One Floor & Home a Trusted Saskatoon Flooring Store. In their latest Saskatoon flooring tip they share their expertise on choosing the right carpet for your home.  

Considering Carpet for your home?

 Today’s homeowners have a tremendous amount of striking, innovative flooring products to design with, including a multitude of hard surface options featuring hybrid constructions that can handle any room conditions. However, only one surface offers the inherent softness that we love to spend time on, dating back to our childhoods. That honor goes to the floor covering with US sales greater than the combined sales of all other flooring options: Carpet.


Whether you want added durability, stain resistance, sustainability, or style, you can use different fibers and carpet constructions to provide the desired comfort level and needed performance in your home. To show our appreciation for this top-selling surface, we present to you today our top 8 reasons to choose carpet!


1. Undeniable Softness

There’s no better feeling after a long day of work or family fun activities like stepping onto a plush, pristine carpet pile. If you have children, snuggling together on a soft carpet watching movies, reading books, and playing with toys, is what making memories is all about. Beyond the standard thick cut pile carpets, you can indulge in different carpet constructions for an even dreamier touch underfoot. In addition to the high-fashion appeal of Saxony, frieze, shag, and cable carpets, you will cherish their cloudlike textures every single night.

2Rich Color

Eye-catching carpet in your favorite rich color palette can truly help your home become an unforgettable, relaxing paradise. Modern yarn innovation and advanced color technology allow a carpet like Tigressá® Cherish to provide nature-inspired hues that will not fade over time. Similarly, Tigressa®SoftStyle is a premier nylon carpet with a unique fiber design that protects each fiber and allows for deeper, longer-lasting color.


3. Design Versatility

With a virtually unmatched selection of colors, patterns, and styles to design with, carpet allows homeowners to include exceptional softness in any room, from a relaxed vibe to an upscale feel. In fact, some carpet manufacturers even offer carpet color blends that you can create for a unique, soothing surface. The options are endless!


4. Stain Protection

Modern innovation means that you can have easy to clean carpet in a home with kids and pets, engineered for complete, permanent stain protection. A brand like Innovia Xtreme Clean™ features permanent pet-friendly technology designed to deny pet accidents from absorbing into the fiber and prevent pet-related odors completely! An option such as LEES® featuringUltra25 provides Ultra25® stain protection all the way through the carpet fiber for true peace of mind.


5. Customization

We all know that area rugs are perfect for instantly and easily adding a pop of color, pattern, texture, warmth, and softness, as well as protecting your floors underneath from wear-and-tear. If you have hard surface flooring, you can still choose carpet by creating a unique, custom area rug that matches your home décor exquisitely. Simply pick your favorite style of soft carpet and you can make sure your custom area rug is the perfect size for any room, space, or furniture layout.


6. Sound Insulation

When you combine soft carpet with your quality carpet pad choice, you create better sound insulation and noise reduction in your home. This can be an especially nifty feature if you have an active home with kids and pets, lessening the sound of boots, cleats, claws, and other assorted foot traffic! For best results, make sure to shop for a carpet pad that is purposefully engineered to absorb sound.  


7. Memory Foam

Actual carpet doesn’t technically feature memory foam (yes, the same as the mattresses and pillows we love!), but you can select memory foam carpet pad underneath for insanely cushioned floors. Perfect for luxuriously cozy bedrooms and living rooms, this cloud-like carpet pad softens every step while providing durability and extending the life of your carpet.

8. Eco-Friendly

Wool carpet has always been a renewable source for carpet, but today’s PET carpets can be sourced from recycled plastic bottles, thus diverting millions of pounds of bottles from landfills. These recycled carpet options are economical for families and are especially great choices for kid’s rooms and playrooms. In addition to answering the call for more environmentally-conscious options, carpet manufacturers have worked hard to decrease the presence of VOC’s in new carpet.

No matter what type of carpet you are ready to choose for your favorite room, explore our Healthier Living Flooring Installation System that uses exclusive HealthinEx® antimicrobial premium carpet cushion. You will receive industry-leading Double Wear and Double Texture Warranties on all carpet installed with our cushion!
