What Are the Different Features of Carpet?


You might know what color you want, and you may even have a certain style in mind. But do you really know what features you should look for in a carpet? All carpet features are important, and they can collectively determine how your carpet looks and how long it lasts.


Some of the most important carpet features are:



Pile height is the length of the yarn tuft. You can also choose from high, medium, and low pile carpets. Low piles are common in busy settings because they don’t mat down as easily, and they’re simple to clean and fast drying. Meanwhile, deep, plush carpets are popular in cozy spaces like bedrooms and living rooms. Longer tufts give a more luxurious look, but they will show tracks and footprints. Shorter tufts are firmer and therefore more suitable for high-traffic areas.


Density refers to the amount of pile yarn and closeness of the yarn tufts – the closer the tufts, the denser it is. Yarn tufts that are closer together (higher density) are more wear-resistant and durable. The pile yarns also can have varying levels of twists. Carpet yarns with more twists are stronger, so they can better handle crushing and matting. Stain-resistant carpets typically have high twist levels. Tuft bind refers to how tightly the pile yarns are attached to the carpet backing. If the yarns are tightly attached to the backing, then the carpet will be more resistant to snags and pulls.


Are There Different Types of Carpet?


Carpet is considered one of the most versatile flooring options around. Whether you’re looking for a full room carpet, area rug, or something else, there are so many different types you can choose from. Carpet tiles are popular in commercial settings because they are relatively easy to install and maintain. We offer an array of carpet types with a range of fiber types, including nylon, polyester, triexta, and wool. Carpet fibers may be natural or synthetic, and they have differing levels of wear and stain resistance.

Where Can Carpet Be Installed?


Carpet flooring is made to be durable and stand up to everyday household challenges. We carry an array of stain and water-resistant carpets that are great for those with kids or pets and busy households. We also have commercial carpets and durable carpet tiles for businesses that want to add a touch of comfort to their space. We recommend avoiding installing carpet in bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms due to humidity and moisture.
