The perfect carpet type

Shag carpet is a popular type of flooring featuring a pile that is extra deep, giving it a shaggy look. It rose to great popularity in the 70s but came back on the scene in the early 2000s featuring a larger array of colors. It’s plush, soft, and makes a comfortable flooring for more private areas such as bedrooms. Be sure you have a heavy-duty machine for vacuuming, as the fibers shed heavily during the first few weeks after installation.

Solid Cut Pile is a very popular choice and refers to the flat look created when looped fibers are cut so they are all the same height. It’s very dense and offers a great cushion feel while the lack of loops means nothing gets snagged on it.

Cut and Loop carpet is another popular type in which loops are sheared off high and loops remain low. This affords an appearance that looks to actually be cut into the carpet, and often, colors are made to contrast one another for an even more enhanced look. The variations help hide many of the sides of everyday wear, but it’s probably not the best fit for pet owners, as nails tend to get caught in the loops.

Large-Scale Geometric is a floor covering better reserved for homeowners with bold decor. It’s often used to create a nice focal point and be played both up and down with contrast. Best placed in oversized rooms, the pattern can often be cut off when trying to install it in a room that’s too small for the oversized patterns.

Warmth and comfort under foot

There is no doubt that carpet floors offer homeowners more warmth, softness and are much quieter than any other floor covering. Today’s carpet styles, carpet colors and textures blend well with any room decor as well with a variety of other flooring products.

There is the right type of carpet for all areas of the home including active areas where fashion and function are both important in your selections. Not only are carpets pleasing to look at and touch, there are durable carpets that can be right for any room or area.
