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 Store Western Carpet One Share a Recent Project


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 a project that they did that was featured on the Karndean website.



The perfect mix of rustic and refined, the modern farmhouse trend has taken off over the last few years. Featuring clean, crisp lines and rustic elements throughout, you will find there are varieties of ways you can incorporate this design trend into your space. 

To help you get this look in your home, we have narrowed down our top four favourite features of the modern farmhouse look. As an added bonus, we had the pleasure of speaking with @farmhouseonfifth owner Kera Knight, and picked her brain on how she designed her home around this trend. From the striking white walls, to her light rustic floor, and everything in between, see how Kera displays our top four farmhouse features in her home.

Neutral Colour Palette

When designing your space to incorporate the modern farmhouse look, it is important to remember to stick to a neutral colour palette. Vibrant whites will add a touch of modernity, while rustic brown elements encapsulate the farmhouse feel. 
Kera chose our Karndean Washed Butternut design as the base of her home. Boasting a light hue with subtle grey undertones, this neutral floor compliments the modern farmhouse trend. Real butternut is soft, and hard to come by in its natural format, but our luxury vinyl Washed Butternut design is durable and can hold up to everyday wear and tear in a busy home.  Waterproof, durable, and most importantly, kid and pet friendly, our Washed Butternut visual not only suits this style with a refined rustic look, but will last a lifetime in Kera’s home. 
  

Mixed Materials Add Texture

While a neutral colour palette is key, mixing materials and textures is every designer's secret to adding warmth back into a space. Instead of leaving her exposed fireplace bricks their unfinished colour, Kera painted over them in a white shade to keep in tune with the neutral colour pallet. Atop the exposed white brick is a striking natural wood mantelpiece that becomes the focal point of the room. The mixture of light tones from the brick and warm browns from the wood adds visual interest to this space. An inexpensive way of incorporating texture into your space is with pillows, blankets, or accent chairs. Leather woven accent chairs, a cotton or linen sofa, and a cozy throw blanket creates depth and character. 


Touch of Nature

Adding natural touches doesn’t have to be expensive: an inexpensive option is greenery. In Kera’s space, the mixture of light, earthy tones from the exposed wood mantle and greenery placed atop emits a comforting feel as they symbolize our connection to nature. When selecting plant pots for your space, choose natural basket options made of wicker, or textured white stone pots. 
  

Shaker-style cabinetry


Shaker-style cabinets are a popular trend as they are versatile, and suit a multitude of interior styles. You may have seen them in kitchens, living rooms, and bathrooms alike. Kera’s white shaker style cabinets showcase the simplicity of modern design, while the recessed panelling and black hardware adds farmhouse charm.
