Carpet Flooring Guide

With its ability to immediately transform and comfort, carpeting continues to be one of America’s favorite ways to floor, and today there are more carpet choices than ever before. Offering creative solutions for all types of homes and businesses. Carpet has long been renowned for its insulating capabilities, and it can add incredible texture and distinction to all types of settings. Today, there are even carpets made to coexist with kids and pets, and even great options for those with allergies. Considering carpet for your next home project? Here are some things to keep in mind.

 

Types of Carpeting

 

Which type of carpeting is right for you? We recommend taking a close inventory of your surroundings and needs before making your final decision. Fortunately, there are beautiful options for all types of needs, including stain-resistant varieties for households that are constantly on-the-go. Carpet pile, or your carpet’s inner fibers, are the major deciding factor when it comes to your rug’s function and overall texture. Carpet fibers are either synthetic or natural, and include varieties like olefin, wool, nylon, and polyester.

 

Carpet Fiber Types

 

Nylon carpet fibers are a highly coveted synthetic that’s renowned for its softness and amazing durability. Nylon carpets don’t tend to fade or stain as easily, since each fiber has a protective coating.  This type of carpeting works wonderfully in both commercial and residential settings.

 

Polyester carpet fibers have a look and feel that’s quite similar to nylon. These synthetic carpets tend to be more affordable than the former, however, but thanks to modern innovation, these products are hardly inferior! Today’s polyester carpets can fight stains with the best of them.

 

Triexta carpet fibers have a rougher feel, and are incredibly sturdy. With intricate patterns to hide daily dust and dirt, this high-test synthetic carpeting is especially popular for hospitality settings.

 

Olefin/polypropylene carpet fibers have a feel that’s often compared to velvet fabric. Olefin carpeting is definitely a show-stopper, but this synthetic rug isn’t intended for heavy uses. Reserve these beauties for quieter, more formal rooms.

 

Wool carpet fibers are soft, warm, and incredibly sturdy. This naturally-sourced pile is renowned for its ability to hold on to its colors, resist allergens, fading and mildew, and last for many, many beautiful years.

 

Where Can Carpet Be Installed?

 

Carpets are not recommended for bathroom or kitchens, but can be a wonderful addition to nearly any other type of interior space. Choose a more heavy-duty variety for areas like stairs and hallways, as these are fit to manage constant foot traffic. A waterproof carpet will go well in your family room, especially if you have little kids or a new puppy.
