What are the Different Types of Carpeting?


Carpet flooring comes in a vast variety of styles and performance options. In terms of design, you’ll find everything from bold patterns to neutral colors. Neutral colored flooring fits in more easily with your furniture, including tables, chairs, couches, and even your walls. Neutral colored carpeting also makes your home easier to sell. At the same time, we encourage you to pick a carpet that matches your personal taste and design goals. Beyond looks, you should take a close look at how your new carpet is constructed.


Carpet pile is the collective term for the fibers that hold your carpeting together. Pile plays a significant role in determining how your flooring will fare over time, how it feels, and the way it looks. Your pile can be either synthetic or natural in origin. Popular types of synthetic pile include polyester, nylon, and olefin. Natural pile options include materials such as wool and sisal. All types of pile can be woven into various construction types, including level loop, frieze, patterned, textured, and plush.


How to Prevent Carpet Fading


As you may know from experience, exposure to sunlight can cause the color of carpet flooring to fade. To prevent your carpet flooring from fading, you should try to limit sunlight exposure as much as you can. You can also use a fluorocarbon protector that will protect your carpet from fading temporarily. The only disadvantage of fluorocarbon protectors is that you will need to have them reapplied regularly. If you happen to have area rugs, you will have a much easier time protecting them from fading. Just move the rugs as far away from the windows as possible. The rugs won't receive as much sunlight exposure if they are at the center of a room.


Where Can Carpeting Be Installed?


Our experts advise avoiding carpeting in kitchens and bathrooms. With these two exceptions, there are now very few limitations when it comes to modern carpeting -- we have more info on flooring for bedrooms and dining rooms. Opt for a water-resistant, stain-resistant product if you’re a parent of young children or own pets. Not sure where to begin? We recommend taking a careful inventory of your space, its activity levels, and its level of sun exposure before making any final carpeting decisions.
