Know carpet’s high-end style

You've probably heard all the debates about whether carpet flooring is outdated, but it couldn't be more modern and up to date.

When you walk into the store, you'll see all the colors, patterns and designs of this flooring. Because of technology, there are new ways to make the rugs even stronger and there’s even one with the stain resistance built into the fiber.

A few basic terms

  • Pile. High pile rugs have long, loose fibers like the frieze. Low pile ones have shorter, tightly woven threads like the loop styles or the Berber.
  • Padding. This is the cushion underneath the carpet. It plays an important role in the performance and longevity of the rug and different ones are better for some than others.
  • Density. This is how closely the fibers are woven together and it is a crucial determinant of quality. See for yourself; bend back a sample card and if there’s a lot of white space, it’s of lesser quality.
  • Twist: Number of times the fibers are turned in a one-inch length. It’s represented by a number, and the higher the number the better the quality; when fibers are twisted with others, they become stronger.
  • Types of fiber. There are naturals and synthetics. Wool is natural. Synthetics are nylon, polyester, and olefin. Triexta is fairly new to the market, is super strong and has the stain resistance built into the fiber.
