Carpet 101

Soft and luxurious, carpet has long been the flooring of choice for almost every area of the home. When choosing carpet, consider how much foot traffic your room will get and the level of dirt and staining it might be exposed to.

Carpet Benefits

There are many benefits to choosing carpet. It provides comfortable cushion to sit and play. Carpet is forgiving of accidental falls, so it’s great for active families. Modern innovation has produced both wear- and stain-resistant carpeting that maintains its beauty for many years.

Carpet also provides insulation, keeping your home warm in cold weather and cool when it’s hot out. Soft and quiet underfoot, carpet also insulates your rooms from sound, making life at home more peaceful.

Carpet Types & Styles

When carpet is made, its fibers are woven into loops, called “pile.” These loops can be left intact, referred to as loop pile, or cut into cut pile. Carpet styles include loop, cut, or various combinations of both. Every style has a different look, texture and feel.

Most carpeting on the market today is made with synthetic materials, including nylon, polypropylene or polyester. Natural fiber is typically wool, but can be cotton or silk as well.
