Here’s a quick overview of carpet to help you on your journey.
Unfortunately, choosing the right carpet for your home isn’t as simple as picking the style you like, buying it, and getting it installed. Which carpet type will work best for an upcoming home improvement project is based on several key factors.
Before you decide, it’s smart to take a close inventory of your room, its activity levels, and your budget. This will help determine the type of carpet that will perform the best in the room of your choosing.
The most common types of carpet include:
Each type of carpet has different appearance and performance capabilities. Some are better at hiding footprints or are more durable such as pattern carpets, while others are more appearance-based, like plush carpets.
In addition to the different style types, different fibers also play a role in how your carpet feels, looks, and works. Carpet fibers can be made from either synthetic or natural materials. Some of the most popular carpet fibers include synthetic ones like nylon, polyester, olefin, triexta, and natural ones like wool.
The type of fiber a carpet is made of can make the carpet more durable, stain-resistance, and allergy friendly.
The advent of moisture-resistant and stain-resistant products has certainly expanded our horizons! Still, carpet isn’t generally suitable for kitchens and bathrooms.
