For those who believe that comfort and the ability to relax is an essential part of every household, carpeting is the right solution. Its soft, thick body of fibers makes it easy underfoot and eases stress off of joints if you’re one who is constantly up and about on your feet. Carpeting technology has advanced to the point of durable carpets that don’t stain easily, making them a low-maintenance and long lasting investment for your home that disproves misconceptions of carpets being high upkeep. Carpeting is also available in a wide selection of styles and colors so it can be placed in any environment.
A common carpeting style is cut-pile, which is created by cutting the loops that traditionally constitute carpeting. The result is a thick and plushy outcome that has an elegant, uniform finish and is a good choice for pets, whose nails won’t snag easily on the individual fibers. Loop-pile carpeting retains the tight loops and is highly durable, able to withstand and remain as thick as ever even through thousands of footsteps. Some manufacturers create loop-pile carpeting by varying the height of the loops, in order to create pleasing patterns in the material. These two styles can be combined into cut and loop-pile carpets, which are used to sculpt carpet styles like saxony and shag or to create striking designs in the carpeting by combining the two textures.
