What are the Different Types of Carpet?
When you choose your new carpet you want to think of things such as pile styles which can determine the type of design you want. The pile styles are the fibers that are twisted and can be cut or loop or cut and loop. You also want to choose the color of your carpet to either compliment your home décor, brighten up a room, or even hide stains and pet fur. The types of fibers also impact how your carpet functions, so synthetic fibers are great for durability, but a natural fiber like wool has a lot of great properties that can make a positive impact in your home.
What makes carpet different it is very soft and comfortable and has the ability to turn a house into a home. There are carpets made today for all kinds of lifestyles, including carpets that are made to be waterproof or stain resistant to combat pet accidents and children’s messes.
There are five main types: level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.
Where Can You Install Carpet?
Carpet is made to be stain resistant and wear resistant so you can live your life worry-free in your own home. Stain fighting technology has made it possible to install carpets in more places like hallways, stair cases, even children’s playrooms. Carpet is still a common choice for bedrooms and living rooms to create a more intimate space for relaxing and gathering. There are also carpet types that can be installed in basements, which are resistant to moisture and are very easy to clean and maintain.
