GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) - Homeowners have long loved the look and feel of carpet underfoot. Its warmth and softness, rich colors, and beautiful dimensions can grace your rooms too. The carpets made today are unequaled in softness, styling, durability, and soil and stain resistant and are fully recyclable!
4 BASIC CARPET TYPES
TEXTURE. Twisted tufts create a subtle, textured surface and offer a luxurious feeling. Texture styles come in a breathtaking array of fashionable colors.
TWIST. Twist carpets are made of tightly entwined yarns, some of which have sparks of color that add interest and depth. They can be loose and shaggy or tighter and more compact.
LOOP. Loop styles are easy-going and relaxed – so you can be the same! With their neat, tailored look, loop carpets are ultra-durable and can stand up to heavy traffic and activity.
PATTERN. The tone-on-tone designs of pattern carpets are created by high-and-low yarns that are strategically sheared. Subtle and artistic, a pattern carpet can be the focal point of an elegant room.
WHAT'S THE RIGHT CARPET FOR YOU?
If you fall in love with white carpet, don't hesitate to go with it. Today's carpets are designed to withstand whatever your family can dish out. But, here are some general hints on choosing the right carpet for the room.
STYLE. Twist and loop styles are very forgiving of traffic – they're great for busy households or for more active areas within your home. They can be chic and sophisticated or trim and tailored. Texture and pattern styles are lush and luxurious. Their distinctive elegance and velvety smoothness are perfect for more formal or traditional settings.
COLOR. Do not shy away from color! It's the easiest, most inexpensive way to spice up your space and express your personality. And don't worry about spills! Stain and soil protection offered in today's carpet make even pale colors more practical.
AND DON'T FORGET PAD – the foundation of your floor. Did you know that the pad you put under new carpet is just about as important as the carpet itself? It not only increases the softness underfoot – although it does that beautifully! Good pad actually prolongs carpet life by up to 50%! It makes room's quitter and warmer. And it allows greater air flow and dirt removal during vacuuming, making cleaning more effective. So make high-quality pad a high priority.
