Wall to wall carpet brings an unmistakable air of softness and comfort to any room. Carpet is the most popular floor covering choice. It comes in many colors, textures, patterns and materials, making it easy to complement your existing décor. Depending on the type purchased and how you care for it, wall to wall carpet can also last a long time, even in high-traffic areas.
Common carpet materials include wool, nylon, acrylic, polyester and olefin. Wool carpet has a natural look and feel, but tends to be higher in price. Nylon carpet is a durable, less expensive material that naturally resists staining, wear and mildew. Olefin, because of its strength and water resistance, is most commonly used in high-traffic commercial settings.
Wall to wall carpet comes in a variety of styles, including plush, frieze, berber and patterned carpets. With so many choices in fibers, styles, colors, patterns, and more, it’s smart to start your carpeting purchase with a free in-home estimate and design consultation from Floor Coverings International in Chicago IL.
