If you walk into a carpet store without the vaguest idea about what constitutes quality, you're a lot more likely to bring home something that falls far short of your expectations. To determine the overall quality of carpeting, you need to take three factors into consideration: twist, density and pile height. Seasoned carpeting shoppers always check out these three attributes before forking over their credit cards. While salespeople will try to convince you that cheap carpeting just isn't going to exhibit exceptional quality, the truth is that you can find amazing deals on truly first-rate carpeting by being aware of these important characteristics. Find out how each characteristic comes into play by checking out the information below.
These are squares of sealed edged carpet backed with PVC or rubber. They come in many colors and several finishes, from corded for heavy wear to soft pile for use in bedrooms and bathrooms. Fitted wall-to-wall, they marry the luxury of a carpet with the practicality of a tiled floor. Not only can the tiles be laid more simply than a carpet and in attractive patterns, but they can also be lifted again separately when they need cleaning. Individual squares can be turned or moved to distribute wear evenly, prolonging the life of the flooring.
The texture and quality of a carpet is determined by the way it is made, or constructed, and the finish applied to the fiber tufts or pile. Test the pile density in the shop by bending the carpet sample back, pile side toward you. The less backing you can see, the better the carpet. Traditionally, the strongest and most expensive carpets have always been woven on looms. The term broadloom refers to any carpets over 3ft wide. The fibers are woven into the backing to form a dense, strong pile. There are two types of weave commonly used for broadloom carpets: In Axminster carpets, pile is woven into the backing material, a row of U-shaped tufts at a time. This weaving method allows a wide range of colors to be used to create quite elaborate patterns, although plain and simpler designs are more popular. The pile is always cut; it can be short and smooth or long and shaggy. In Wilton carpets, the pile is woven from continuous yarn, so that the fibers are buried in the backing to make a high density, hardwearing carpet. It is available with a cut, loop, and cut and loop pile.
