What goes underneath your carpet can be almost as important as selecting the carpet itself. Home Carpet One includes a pad that is appropriate for the performance of the carpet that you select, but there are other options that provide additional potential benefits. For example, if you have radiant heat floors you will want to take a look at our rubber or memory foam options. If you have selected a woven carpet yet want a softer feel underfoot, you will want to explore using the Healthinex Memory Foam instead of the synthetic felt pad that would otherwise be included. If you want the ultimate luxury under your plush carpet, the ½” Healthier Choice pad is a great option. Below you will find a brief description of each pad.



Titan is a ¼”, 8 lb rebond pad. Hypoallergenic and CRI Green Label Plus-certified. Included in all of our carpets under $3.00 per square foot and all of our Debbie’s Deals carpets.
