Nowadays, carpets have only one thing in common: they are all made of bound fibers. The colour, pattern and pile are widely diverse. Choose any colour from neutral beige to bold primary, any pattern from standard ‘saxony’ to ornate ‘berber,’ and any ‘pile’ from tight to 70’s shag.
There are three factors that affect how a carpet feels: the ‘construction’ meaning how the carpet is manufactured, the main types being ‘saxony,’ ‘frieze,’ ‘cut & loop’ and ‘berber’; the softness of the carpet, determined by the ‘denier’; and the type of fiber, either nylon, polyester, SmartStrand or wool.
Modern manufacturing has made quality carpet lines more stain resistant, cleanable and longer lasting than ever. Read our blog on How to choose the right carpet to learn more about these technologies and the factors that affect a carpet’s performance.
