Carpet is the perfect finish for creating spaces with texture, warmth, and added character—and choosing the right one for your home takes careful consideration. The most important factors to note when selecting a carpet is construction, style, and material.
Construction refers to the density, weight, and twist of a carpet. A carpet with higher density will be more durable and stand up to high traffic. A carpet with a medium weight and density will be softer and more plush and cozy.
The style of a carpet is determined by the way the fibers are stuck to the backing, which impacts both the aesthetics and the durability of the product. Loop-pile is made by forming the carpet fibers into tiny loops and adhering them to their backing. Loop-pile carpet can be short or tall, is incredibly durable, and is the best at hiding dirt. Cut-pile carpets have no loops and the frayed fiber stick up, making for a soft, plush finish.
The most popular materials used in carpets are nylon, polyester, and wool. Nylon and polyester are synthetic options with their own unique characteristics. Nylon is incredibly durable and versatile, while polyester stands up best to stains and fading. If you’re opting for a natural fiber, wool is the way to go. It’s soft, flame-resistant, and hides dirt very well.
