CARPET          HARDWOOD          LAMINATE          VINYL          TILE & STONE          WHAT IS A DESIGN CONSULTATION?

Designed for warm, dry applications. Synthetic options are conveniently made of polyester, nylon or polypropolene while natural carpet can be made of wool. Comes in many patterns, colors and styles.

Creates a comfortable atmosphere and acts as insulation to retain warm air in cold months. It also works as a noise reducer and can improve air quality by trapping pet dander and debris.

Certain carpets may be prone to staining when compared to other flooring options, can be difficult and costly to clean; also carpets placed in high traffic areas tend to wear out if made of inexpensive material.

TYPES OF CARPET

The two most common carpet types are cut pile and loop pile. There are various style options within each respective construction type:

Cut Pile:

This carpet gets its durability through the fiber used, the density of the tufts, and the twist of the yarn. There are four popular styles to choose from: textured plush, Saxony, frieze, and cable.

PLUSH

This has a smooth and even finish, providing a more formal look.

TEXTURED

This style uses low density fibers of uneven heights. The resulting look hides dirt with an informal look, but it is not suited for high traffic areas.

SAXONY

This has a smooth and even finish, but the fibers are longer than a textured plush, and the fibers have a twist. Though this is the most popular style of carpet on the market, it has a tendency to show footprints and other marks more than other carpets.

FRIEZE

This has a smooth and even finish, providing a more formal look.

CABLE

This style of carpet is made with thicker and longer fibers to provide a more “cozy” feel to the carpet when walked on.

Loop Pile:

Loop pile carpets do not cut the yarn tips, making the loops visible. They are durable in construction, and are considered an “all-purpose” carpet. There are various styles to choose from including: level loop, patterned multi-level loop, and cut and loop.

LEVEL LOOP OR BERBER

This carpet style features packed short looped fibers. This provides a durable surface for high trafficked areas with an informal appearance. Some color flecks in the fiber may make it easier to hide dirt, but the height of the fibers may make the seams more visible.

PATTERNED MULTI-LEVEL LOOP

This carpet style features loops of varying heights to create a texture and or pattern.

CUT AND LOOP

This carpet style is a mixture between cut pile and loop pile fibers. The variant makes for a textured appearance that is ideal for highly trafficked areas. As an added bonus, this type of carpet also hides dirt and stains.
