There are certain things that make carpet more appealing than other flooring types. For one thing, it’s been around for many years and is likely a floor covering that you grew up with. You’ve become accustomed to the softness, the quiet environment it creates, and the fact that it matches any design scheme.
These days, there are more reasons than ever to choose this material to cover your floors. We are going to talk about a few of them, some of which you may not even have known about.

One of the first things you’re going to be choosing is a carpet fiber, as certain ones have specific characteristics. For instance, wool is a sought after natural fiber that many homeowners choose for the luxurious look and vibrant colors. However, since it holds more than ten times its own weight in water, should it be subjected to spills or moisture, it’s not the perfect option for everyone.
One well-liked carpet fiber is nylon, which is easily one of the most popular among homeowners. It has a long history of durability, easy maintenance, stain resistance and resiliency. It’s a great choice, no matter what your budget, because you can find nylon in just about any price range.
Polyester, once thought to be a poor quality choice, has seen many recent improvements. Not only are they beautiful, they also have a luxurious feel, both to the hand as well as underfoot. You can choose some incredibly rich colors that have a great fade resistance, making it a great choice for a variety of decors.
No matter which fiber you choose, it’s important to understand the necessity of a professional installation. Feel free to talk to your flooring professional about the specifics, so that you’ll understand the complete process.
