If you’re looking into carpet…GREAT CHOICE! Carpet is wonderful for almost any room in a house. It’s warm, inviting and quiet. Your feet won’t get as cold in the winter walking on carpet, that’s for sure!
There are three different types of carpet out there you can choose from.
There’s level loop, pattern, frieze, plush and texture.
Each of these can be great for different things. If you’re just not sure what is best for the rooms you want to carpet, no sweat! We’ve put together a little summary of each type just for you so that making a decision is easy.
Loop carpet is made up of yarns that are looped up around themselves and remain uncut on the surface of the carpet. Hence the name “level loop.”
These uncut loops form a little pile, and the overall height of this pile will vary from a luxurious and enticing high-level little pile to something much more low and very tightly constructed. Level loop carpet is fun and it can feel “oh so heavenly” but it has some other pretty incredible talents, too. The higher level loop carpet has a delightful skill of hiding stains and is known for not developing tracks or differences in color even when used in certain areas more than others. It’s abilities make it a favorite for high-traffic areas because the colors just appear rich when used often. One of our favorites, we don’t doubt you’ll fall in love the second you see it. Oh, and feel it, too….
Frieze carpet can be recognized as a sort of “little brother” to shags and cables.
They’re very closely related in the carpeting world, actually. All of the extremely twisted yarns will aid in that sort of “contemporary look” you might be going for, whether it be your living room, the den, the study or even a playroom. It’s incredibly durable in high-traffic areas of your home and can withstand pet claws better than almost any other type. This carpet is also fabulous and will always remain a favorite just because it doesn’t show vacuum tracks or footprints like most pile-cut style carpets! When in doubt, just Frieze.
This intricate and delightful combination of lower loops and tufts will work It’s beautiful magic and together creates intricate and unbelievable sculpted patterns that have the ability to transform the look of a room.
Patterned carpet can be awesome because of its increased strength and durability in the carpet department.
It offers to every homeowner the promise of a good looking floor, even in the midst of high traffic and a little tough love. What else can we ask from a carpet? If you’re looking to add a dimension of texture to a room, a patterned carpet just might be calling your name.
Sometimes call velvet because of its heavenly texture, plush carpet can bring a much more formal tone to a room
and, in the right colors, it can actually work to lighten certain rooms that seem “dark” in appearance. This carpet isn’t the best for high traffic areas and if you’re one of those people that really just enjoy seeing the vacuum marks across the floor, this is definitely the carpet for you. Formal, plush, fancy and velvety, this carpet can make you want to stretch out and take a nap in the living room floor….
