Carpet continues to be among one of the top choices in flooring for homeowners today because of its unmatched comfort and qualities. There are several characteristics that play important roles in how a carpet functions, like the pile and fiber types. Even the carpet cushion and base material impact how a carpet will function in your home.
Carpet is more durable than you think, and comes in stain, wear and fade resistant options for the busiest of homes. The type of lifestyle you have has an impact on the type of carpet you need for your home. If you live a more active lifestyle, consider looking into durable and stain resistant carpets. If you live a more relaxed lifestyle than something super soft and plush would be great for you and your home.
Carpet has come a long way in the past few decades and the fibers that are used are now more durable, stain resistant, and even comfortable than those used in previous carpets. Carpet is also a great soundproofing and helping to muffle the noise inside a room. This is one reason why carpet is often added in bedrooms of homes. Carpet helps to muffle sounds like things dropping on the floor, footsteps and more. Carpet is a great insulator as well and can help keep your bedroom warm and cozy during long winter months.
There are many different types of carpets such as stain resistant, ultra-soft and even ultra-strong. If you have an active lifestyle, or even have children and pets in your home, then you should consider stain resistant carpeting. You may want to consider the color you want your carpet to be. Something that compliments your home décor, brightens up a room, or even hides stains and pet fur.
Knowing the types of fibers used in a carpet is also important in choosing one for your home. There are synthetic fibers like nylon and polyester that can be made to be super soft or ultra-strong. Then there are natural fibers like wool, which retains color well and are also naturally allergy friendly.
Nylon continues to be a popular carpet fiber choice for many different reasons. The benefits of nylon include top quality performance and long lasting looks. Nylon fibers can be treated to be resistant to staining.
Polyester is less expensive than nylon. New technology is changing the chemistry of polyester and making it more durable and even comparable to nylon’s durability.
Olefin/polypropylene is best for low traffic areas like dining rooms or formal rooms. These types of carpets feature more decorative patterns and are designed to be looked at rather than be lived on.
Wool is one of few natural fibers and is considered an eco-friendly option because it is sustainable. Wool is considered a hypoallergenic option because it traps allergens and stops them from floating into the breathing zone.
Triexta is inherently stain resistant, and unlike nylon fibers it does not need to be treated to be stain resistant. Triexta can be compared as a cousin to nylon.
Carpet can be installed in several different places around your home because of its versatile characteristics and style. Carpet is the ideal flooring choice for bedrooms because of its softness and comfort. Other places you can install carpet include children’s playrooms, dens, and living rooms. You can even install carpet in high traffic areas such as stairs and hallways.
Carpet should not be installed in places with high moisture like kitchens and bathrooms. There are carpets, however, that can be installed in basements with moisture under control.
