Comparing different types of carpet

Carpet flooring can add comfort, warmth, and style to your home. However, with a range of different carpet flooring types out there, it can be hard to choose. Monarch (1953) Carpet One Floor & Home in Edmonton has a wide variety of carpet options and offers some information on the different kinds of carpet their company provides. 

Frieze carpet

Frieze carpet is a different word for “shag” carpet, but it’s not the same 70-style carpet you remember growing up. The fabric twists, making it less likely to fray over time, and a more durable carpet option. Stains or any markings can be more easily concealed as it goes deeper into the carpet, as the twisted fabric hides it. Since dirt can go deep, however, it may be more difficult to clean. Still, it’s insulating, and very comfortable on your feet, because, as you walk on it, your feet will sink into it. This makes it a great choice if you’re looking for warmth and comfort in your flooring. 

Cut and loop carpet

This style of carpet is when straight and looped fibres are combined together to create different patterns in the carpet. These patterns can be subtle and simple, or colourful and complicated, all depending on which style you choose. The biggest pro when choosing cut and loop carpet is the design. However, this carpet has less give, making it less ideal for families with children or animals. If you’re looking for a throwback design in your carpet or a way to add some colour to your flooring, consider choosing cut and loop carpet. 

Plush carpet

A plush carpet has the softest finish on the list. It’s thicker, cozier, and comes with many benefits for your home. Plush carpet is eco-friendly, as it’s made from recycled materials. It helps repel dust and dirt, making it easier to maintain. However, when it comes to cleaning, you will have to take some time. Since the carpet is so thick and durable, you’ll have to go slow with the vacuum to ensure you’re getting the deep-down dirt. With the proper care, this carpet can last and look great for years to come.
