Nothing adds comfort to a room like carpet. Carpet flooring will stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer. It makes the rooms in your home inviting places to relax with friends and family. Floortex Design carries carpet in a wide variety of colors, styles and types. We also offer custom rugs to help you achieve exactly the look you want.
Natural Carpet Fiber – Natural carpet fiber offers a more unique look and feel, which sets it apart from synthetic. The greatest benefit of natural fiber carpet, especially wool, is its longevity. The natural fiber has a memory that resists crushing and wear from traffic. The same quality protects it from spills by locking the liquid outside and on the surface of the yarn. Natural fiber carpet requires more cleaning than synthetic in order to keep it in the best condition.
Synthetic Carpet Fiber – Synthetic carpet is extremely durable and stain resistant. Most synthetic carpet is made with polypropylene or olefin fiber. Both of these materials are basically hard plastics. Since these fibers are made of non-porous plastic it is almost impossible for stains to set in them.
Some styles of carpet are better suited for certain situations:
Formal Rooms – Plush and Saxony styles both have a luxurious look and feel and a smooth, clean texture that goes well in formal settings.
High Traffic Rooms – Frieze and Berber both go really well in rooms with a high traffic volume. Their durability and resilience make them well suited for playrooms, workrooms, basements and other active areas.
Casual Rooms – For rooms where people spend a lot of time relaxing together or laying on the floor, like family rooms, cable carpet offers a thick and soft texture. It is comfortable, durable and wears better than other styles.
Custom Rugs – To achieve exactly the look you want, or to elegantly cover a high traffic area, you may consider a custom rug. Floortex Design offers accent rugs and patterned rugs that can be made to coordinate with the carpet and other textiles in the home. We offer Berber, plush, woven, wool, and sisal – just about every type of fabric you can dream of. We look forward to helping you create your perfect custom rug.
