Integrating style, warmth, and comfort all into one product, carpet is the top flooring option for in-home use. Carpet has changed a lot over the years, now being made more durable, stain resistant, and even waterproof. Colors, textures, and patterns have become an endless option in carpet selection. At Bloomington Carpet One Floor & Home in Bloomington, MN we carry only quality brands and products in carpeting for our customers.
What separates a rug from a carpet is that carpets are installed wall to wall and cover the entire floor of a room. There are several carpet characteristics that play a role from the base material, to the pile style, and even the carpet cushion underneath.
What are the Different Types of Carpet?
In addition to finding the style that best matches your home and personality, you also need to consider the important characteristics of pile styles. Carpet fibers can be made out of different materials and make an impact on the look and feel of the carpet. It also determines the stain and matting resistance as well as long term durability. Nylon and polyester carpets are synthetic materials that are both durable and comfortable. Wool carpets however are a natural fiber that holds many positive qualities from being allergy friendly to water resistant.
There are five main types: level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.
Where can Carpet be Installed?
Carpet is made to be resistant to wear, spills, and even stains. That means you can confidently install carpet in places around your home such as living rooms, hallways, bedrooms, and home offices. Carpet flooring is a perfect option for bedrooms because its softness and comfort makes your room feel more relaxed and like a retreat after a long day.
Keep in mind that carpet should be kept away from areas with a lot of moisture and humidity such as bathrooms, some basements, and laundry rooms.
