Choose the Best Carpets for Your Home, Part Two
Color: The selection of carpet color is a very personal choice. You will want to select a color that unites your decorative elements and creates the atmosphere you desire. Lighter colors make a room seem larger, darker colors provide coziness. There are also practical considerations in the color selection. New stain and soil resistant technology makes today's lighter color carpet much easier to clean, allowing more decoration options. Medium and darker colors, tweeds and textures will help disguise common soil in your home's high traffic areas.
The Feel.....Textures: Carpet construction- how the yarn is "tufted" or locked into a backing- affects its texture and ultimately, the long term durability and appearance of the carpets.
Level loop pile: Loops of equal height. Generally offers long-lasting wear for high traffic areas. Many of today's popular Berbers are level loop.
Multi-level Loop pile: Usually has two or three different loop heights to create pattern effects. Provides good durability.
Cut pile: Loops are cut, leaving individual yarn tufts. Still one of today's most popular constructions, its durability is achieved with factors including the type of fiber, density of tufts, and the amount of twist in the yarn.
Cut and Loop pile: Combination of cut and looped yarns. Provides variety of surface textures, including sculptured.
Fiber content: Roughly 97% of all carpet is produced using synthetic fibers, which are designed to feature style, easy maintenance, and outstanding value. There are five basic types of carpet pile fibers.
