Whether your signature style is trendy or traditional, carpeting brings many added bonuses. It can warm your feet, set the tone of your room, and hold strong against stains and heavy traffic. There are many different ways to enjoy carpeting, so here are a few things to keep in mind as you shop for the perfect product.
Modern ingenuity has resulted in thousands of options when it comes to carpeting. The fibers in your carpeting, also called pile, will largely determine the way your rug fares and wears over time. There are many types of carpeting, made from both natural and synthetic piles. Nylon and polyester are popular synthetics, while wool is a natural favorite. Among the different carpet types are level loop, frieze, patterned, textured, and plush. You can learn more reading below, or start browsing through our different carpet collections now.
Nylon, a synthetic fiber, is the quintessential all-around carpeting. With its durability and softness, nylon carpeting appeals to a wide range of homeowners. It comes in a variety of colors and styles.
Polyester, another synthetic fiber, is similar to nylon in terms of texture and appearance. While polyester was once considered a low-budget option, today’s products are incredibly resilient, making them an affordable option that doesn’t skimp on performance.
Olefin is a synthetic fiber prized for its beautiful colors. Most olefin products are woven into Berber-style carpets, making them great for highly-trafficked areas.
Triexta is a heavy-duty synthetic fiber. Made to manage severe staining and wearing, triexta is often chosen by parents and pet owners.
Wool, a popular natural carpet fiber, is allergy-friendly, soft, and sustainable. Resistant to stains, moisture, and odors, wool is enduring, elegant, and long-wearing.
Your carpet’s pile construction is another crucial consideration. There are three basic construction types:
Cut-pile carpeting is woven in loops: its fibers are then trimmed into varying lengths. This process results in heavily textured, denser carpeting.
Loop pile carpeting is woven similarly, but it's looped endings remain intact. This process results in a carpet that’s smoother, with a uniform appearance.
Cut-loop carpeting is a combination of both cut-pile and loop pile. This can help disguise snags and imperfections over time.
While we wouldn’t recommend carpeting for the kitchen or bathroom, there are carpeting products suitable for a wide range of interior settings. Resilient, wear-ready varieties are best suited for hallways, stairs, and other high-traffic zones. On the other hand, a lush plush pile can be a welcome addition to your master bedroom.
