Carpeting adds color and texture to a room regardless of the style you choose, and of course, it adds underfoot comfort as well.
Family-owned Flooring Source is the place to find a wide selection of carpet flooring if you live in the Dickinson, Friendswood, and Baytown, Texas area. Shop at one of our three showrooms or take advantage of our shop-at-home service.
Usually, it's best to choose carpeting with a thick pile of fibers woven closely together. In addition to fiber density, 'pile' is defined by the length of the fibers, usually noted as low, medium, and high.
● Low pile carpet: under ¼-inch
● Medium pile carpet: ¼-inch to ½-inch
● High pile carpet: ½-inch to ¾-inch
Loop pile carpet
Fibers are looped onto the backing to create tough loop pile carpeting, a style well-suited for high-traffic areas in the home.
In addition, the trendy light-colored Berber carpet, first hand-woven by the Berbers in North Africa, features dots of color. This easy-to-clean floor covering is available in various smooth and even finishes and patterned and textured designs.
Cut pile carpet
Cut pile carpet styles are created when the fibers looped onto the backing are cut at the tips. Saxony is a popular cut pile style that presents a formal look with its even, medium-length fibers that have a dense, soft feeling underfoot.
Frieze-style carpeting, like well-known shag, is more casual since fibers are so tightly twisted they have a curly appearance.
