Three Essentials For Choosing The Right Carpet

Posted by Amely Wurmbrand at August 26. 2009
Choosing a good carpet for your home isn't just important for complimenting or enhancing your interior design. Once you have a color or pattern in mind, you'll need to start thinking about more practical issues such as which carpet type you want, which fiber it should be made of and how you will be using your new carpet. Interior designers in Seattle agree that if you answer these three important questions, you'll be better equipped to make the best choice for your home. Here are the essentials you will need to know: 1. Carpet types Loop: This carpet is formed through continuous loops of threads. It would go well in an informal area but isn't great if you have pets whose claws can pull up a loop and make the carpet run. Frieze: Another good informal style, this carpet has a curly look to it. It stands up well and doesn't leave obvious vacuum and footprint marks. Plush: A dense carpet with a luxurious feel. This goes well in a formal area where there is little traffic as it is easily imprinted. Pattern: Uses different-sized loops of thread and cut threads to form a subtly textured look. You can choose from a large range of patterns, e.g., swirls, squares, lattices and botanical features. Textured: The fibers on this are cut at different lengths to give a shaggy look. This is a good all-round carpet as it is not easily imprinted and gives a casual yet beautiful look. 2. Carpet fibers Polyester: An inexpensive choice which sometimes offer a softer texture. However, it does not have the best durability and easily looses its shape. Nylon: This is the most popular carpet fiber. It is moderately priced and thought to be the best at resisting wear and stains. Wool: This has a luxury quality to it, being soft and bulky. But beware, it will probably need professional cleaning and is also the priciest. Olefin (polypropylene): These are strong fibers known to resist wear and stains. Commercial interiors favor this type, though some believe it is harder to clean. 3. Where will your carpet go? Anticipate how your carpet will be used and who will be using it. Will your carpet be placed in a formal room where there won't be much people-traffic? If so, you won't mind buying a more expensive fiber which looks great though it has lower durability. Do you need a carpet for your lounge where your pet dogs and children can roam around freely? If this is the case, you might opt for an inexpensive type that you can replace every few years as needed, or you might opt for the most durable kind. Once you've anticipated which qualities your carpet will need when it is being used, you'll be much closer to making the best pick for your home.

Before buying new carpet, it is vital to find out as much as you can about the different types; how they are made, what they are made of and how well they will wear, to be sure of choosing the right quality for each room.
