Benefits for Carpet
The term carpet is associated with words like soft and warm. Homeowners today still choose carpet over other flooring options for their home. Carpets and rugs are quite commonly mistaken. Carpets are installed wall to wall and cover the entire floor of a room, where a rug only covers part of the floor and are also known as area rugs.
Best Carpets for Active Homes
Each carpet has characteristics you may want to consider in your decision. Color plays a major factor in your decision, for example the darker a rug the easier it is to hide stains. Pile styles are also important, carpet pile is the density of fibers that make up a carpet. 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 are made out of different materials which impacts the look and feel of the carpet. It can determine the stain and matting resistance as well as long term durability. Nylon and polyester carpets are synthetic fibers that are durable and soft. Wool fibers are natural, and are found in most carpets.
