Combining elegance, warmth, and comfort all into one product, carpet is still the top flooring option for in-home use. Many think a rug and a carpet are the same, what separates a rug from a carpet is that carpets are installed wall to wall and cover the entire floor of a room.
Besides having to choose a color, you will want to consider other options as well that make up carpeting. Pile styles have unique characteristics that’ll you’ll want to know before selecting a carpet.
What are these different characteristics? Cut pile has fibers that are cut at the ends making the carpet denser. Loop pile is the opposite, where no fibers are left at the surface and are in a series of loops, giving the carpet an even look. Multi-level loop staggers the height of the loop fibers to create an uneven surface. Cut and loop piles also provide an uneven look but also give texture to the carpet and hide dirt.
Carpet fibers can be made out of different materials and make an impact on the look and feel of the carpet. It also determines the stain and matting resistance as well as long term durability. Wool carpets are a natural fiber that is allergen free and resists crushing making it look newer for longer. Nylon is a popular carpet fiber as it is a strong material and can be engineered to resist water and aid in stain prevention.
