What is the difference between this carpet & that one?

January 12, 2012

Are you overwhelmed by the many types of carpet? All you want is the right one for your room-one that is durable, beautiful and in your budget, right? Shopping for carpeting can be overwhelming but the professionals at a wholesale flooring warehouse can really help you.

To start your carpet shopping it is important to know what type of pile you want when you are selecting carpet.  Pile is the height of carpet. Your wholesale flooring store will have plenty of examples of pile types but the main types are low-pile, high-pile and cut-and-loop pile. 

If you want a durable carpet that can handle high traffic areas, you will want to look at a low-pile carpet. They are not as plush or as thick as other types of carpet but they are perfect for busy areas of a home like a hallway. 

If you want a luxurious looking plush carpet, high-pile is for you.  It is thick and feels cushiony under your foot.  This type of carpet is perfect for a bedroom.  This rich carpet looks great in bright colors or warm neutrals.

Now if you are looking for something with style, you should ask about cut-and-pile carpets.  They have great visual appeal and style.  Cut-and-pile carpet isn’t as thick as high-pile carpet but it comes in many textures and patterns that can really add to the design of any room.
