What are the Types of Carpet?
What separates a rug from a carpet is that carpets are installed wall to wall and cover the entire floor of a room. There are several carpet characteristics that play a role:
- Base material the fibers are attached to
- “Pile” – the tightly woven material
- Cushion underlayment
Besides having to choose 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.
- Cut pile
- Loop pile
- Multi-level pile
- Cut and loop pile
Each pile style effects how a carpet functions. 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 come in different materials as well ranging from synthetic to natural. Fibers also determine the stain and matting resistance as well as long term durability.
- Nylon is the most durable
- Polyester has a comfortable feel
- Wool is a natural or traditional fiber
Carpet makes a home feel warmer and cozier. It is great for families who have young children just learning how to walk, or for spaces like bedrooms and dens. Check out our carpet selection and choose which brand is right for your home!
