Get warmth and comfort with wall-to-wall carpets

For decades, wall to wall carpet has been the choice for homeowners. From the famous 1960s orange plush to the teal plush of the 1980s, carpets have continued to evolve to match the homeowner’s style and function. Even today, with the growing popularity of tile and hardwood floors, carpet remains the most popular floor covering for homeowners.

Advantages of Carpet

Carpet provides many benefits that cannot be compared to other types of flooring such as hardwood, tile, or laminate. The carpet is warm and soft and helps to provide sound insulation for the operation of the floor. A non-slip surface is ideal for the elderly and children as it can reduce the number of slips and falls these groups may experience. There are many factors to consider when choosing the best bedroom rug. In addition to the color, you also need to decide what style of carpet best suits the look of the room and your lifestyle.

Different types of carpets

  • The plush carpet is solid in color and has an even, neat pile height. “Pile” refers to the length of the carpet threads. Plush is the most popular style used in homes today. It comes in a wide range of colors, is clean, and wears well. However, it shows marks and vacuum marks more than other carpet styles.
  • A Cut and Loop pattern carpet is made using several cut and uncut loops that form the pattern of the carpet. This style of carpet can be used in a variety of rooms, including formal and informal settings. Due to the pattern of the carpet, it is sometimes possible to see a seam where one piece of carpet meets another.
  • The frieze carpet is composed of solid strands of fibers. It is very durable, so it works well in high-traffic areas. Unlike plush carpets, it hides marks and vacuum marks. It is usually more expensive than other style options.
  • A shag carpet uses different thicknesses of threads and fabrics. The new carpets offer trendy and bold designs that are very different from the carpets that were popular in the 1960s and 1970s. You can choose from long, short, and mini carpets depending on the length you want your pile to be. The Shag carpet is soft and comfortable due to the number of fibers.

To choose the perfect carpet combination, place the pad sample on the floor and place the carpet sample on top of it. Walk on the carpet with bare feet to feel how comfortable it is. Cleaning the carpet does not wear out with traffic; it breaks with dirty drifts of carpet fibers. Vacuum regularly to keep your carpet looking like new. Annual carpet cleaning by a professional cleaner will help extend the life of your carpet. Between the great savings and the endless variety of styles, colors, and patterns available in carpets, it’s no wonder it remains the most popular flooring choice all year round. Now that you know about carpet, you can literally hit the ground running and choose the best carpet option for your home.
