A Look at Different Types of Carpet

Carpet Cleaning Vacuum

When it comes to installing a carpet, it always helps to consider the area you are looking to carpet and the function you would like it to serve. Different types of carpet are suitable for different areas of the home due to their varying properties. Here is a closer look at the different types of carpet.

Loop Pile

If you are looking to lay down carpeting in an area where there is often a substantial amount of traffic, consider loop pile carpets. They are durable and can enjoy a long working life in areas such as hallways and doorways. A loop pile carpet is composed of loops of fibers, all of which are the same height. They often feature contrasting colors and are appropriate for a variety of different environments.

Cut Pile

Cut pile is among the most popular types of carpets, and its properties are influenced by the type of fiber used. Plush, or velvet, gives the cut pile carpet a formal look and a dense texture. It also tends to show foot traffic. On the other hand, textured plush hides footprints and is thus appropriate for the entire home. Cut pile carpets made of Saxony give off a traditional aesthetic and are commonly found in dining rooms or living rooms. The extensive twisting of frieze fibers results in an informal look and a textured feel. The more twisted the yarn is, the longer it will be able to hold its shape.

Cut and Loop Pile

When the techniques of loop pile and cut pile are mixed, the resultant carpet is called cut and loop pile. This combination technique helps to highlight the advantages of each type of carpet and provide a unique visual aesthetic; this style is used to make swirls, squares, and other designs in the carpet.
