Carpet is one of the most taken for granted aspects of any home, yet it has a rich history and can absolutely make a home the ultimate warm, inviting place it should be. Carpet and rug making is an art form stretching back over 9,000 years, to 7,000 B.C. or so and has been a skill that has been valued for centuries. Carpet in Virginia Beach not only is a reprieve from the hard surfaces elsewhere in the home and outside, but also valued as decoration and in some cases, even used to tell stories. You can get various styles of carpet in Virginia Beach.
Carpet is created in a number of different ways, but here we will discuss interior home carpeting, which in and of itself comes in a number of varieties. Most interior carpet is ‘tufted,’ meaning their pile (the fibers that you walk, sit, or lie on) is punched through a strong backing material and reinforced for durability. Carpet in Virginia Beach fibers come in a number of types as well. The most frequently found carpet material is nylon, due to its wear resistance, though it is relatively stain-prone, because the fibers absorb color easily. Wool can also make carpets, it is extremely durable and is easy to dye as well. Wool is expensive however, and is often blended with synthetic fiber materials to achieve a “best of both worlds” pile. Polypropylene carpets are the converse of wool, hard to dye and very inexpensive. Polyester fibers can take damage well, and are naturally stain resistant material. The way the pile is treated after this, however, determines the type of carpet created.

Cut pile features multiple variations, but essentially is a pile of carpet fibers pushed through the backing and then cut to desired length. The different types of cut pile come from the way the fibers are treated after they are cut. Textured plush is a fairly decorative look and having patterns and textures can camouflage tread marks and vacuuming trails. It is versatile as well. Saxony carpet is the softest, most plush carpet, so it is not ideal for hallways, family or other higher traffic areas. However, it is perfect for a dining room or more formal space. It can also luxuriate a bedroom. Friezé/Shag has a ruffled, curled look. The fibers are twisted extensively and is a very casual, chic look. It, like textured plush, can camouflage footprints too.
Berber Carpet in Virginia Beach feature what is called a level loop pile, where fibers are pushed through the carpets backing and looped back into the binding. The loops are all of equal length and size, creating a nice, even texture. Berber carpets are a casual carpet that is fairly versatile. Uneven loop pile features varying loop heights to create subtle patterns and textures.
When you are deciding on which carpet to purchase, consider a few things. First, what type of room you are carpeting. If the room will be ‘lived’ in a lot (kids playing, multiple trips in, out, and through the room throughout the day, lots of people in the room) make sure you look for carpet that is wear resistant and has a durable pile that will not become matted easily. This goes for home as well as offices. Next, consider cost, carpet prices vary from $6 or so to over $25 per square yard, which is a pretty drastic difference! It helps to comparison shop and make sure to plan for cost of padding as well, since this is usually priced separately from the carpet itself. Finally consider color. Carpet in Virginia Beach can really bring a room’s décor together, or throw it totally out of whack. It is important, when you have narrowed down your choices, to ask the carpet supplier to provide you with as large a sample as possible. When you get home, check out how it works with furniture and against the walls and if its a color and texture you’d enjoy living with for several years, since carpet is a longer term investment than other home decor purchases. Neutral colors tend to be safer choices, as they hide stains and wear and tear more easily than brighter, or pastel colors, but ultimately the choice is yours!

– Calling plush carpet a “standard” is in some way a fair description but in many ways does not do it justice. Shearing the top of the fiber during manufacturing creates an even, smooth carpet.
