What are the Best Carpeting Materials?
When it comes to selecting a new carpet, understanding the materials and their properties can be an important factor when coupled with your lifestyle. While some materials provide maximum comfort, others may be suited best for high-traffic areas. Let’s cover the basics of the most common carpeting materials:
- Nylon: The most common fiber found in residential carpets, nylon offers a durable surface and design versatility. Static-free, and resistant to mildew, mold, and everyday wear and tear. Nylon is a great choice for
- Polyester: Extremely soft and stain-resistant, polyester is often an affordable alternative to nylon carpeting. Polyester texture provides perfect comfort for bedrooms and living spaces.
- Olefin: Vibrant and durable, Olefin’s color won’t fade even when exposed to direct sunshine, bleaches, or other harsh chemicals. Olefin is commonly found in low-profile, Berber loop carpets. Olefin is perfect for high-sunshine areas like porches.
- Triexta: Similar to polyester, triexta is an affordable alternative with a long-lasting reputation.

We always recommend contacting our specialists as you plan to acquire a new carpet. We are pleased to offer the following carpeting types at our Kennewick location:
Frieze carpeting is made of a cut-pile construction and is exceptionally plush. Frieze's long-lasting curling fibers are well-known for their ability to camouflage dirt. With a knotted appearance, frieze can add a textured style that gives character to any room while blending colors and patterns.
The surface of loop carpeting is constructed with uncut loop fibers. A level-loop carpet style comes woven or tufted, with a same-height loop surface. A multi-loop carpet has two or three different pile heights in each loop. These carpets have a casual style that can prevent foot imprints from appearing.
Cut-loop carpeting, on the other hand, is designed exactly as it sounds. The loop fibers have been cut straight with this product, resulting in a snag-free consistency that is popular among individuals who have children, dogs, and cats.
Patterned carpets are made using the same methods as printing paper. Flatbed screen printing, rotary screen printing, Stalwart printing, and sophisticated computer-programmed jet printing are some of the design processes used. Contemporary style guides and 5-star hotels are known to flaunt the beautiful patterns that can be achieved with this carpeting type.
Saxony & Textured Saxony Carpet
Saxony carpets are cut-pile carpets that can add a touch of luxury to any room in your home. Saxony Type patterns are resistant to wear, shading, and traffic marks in your home. Textured Saxony uses the same fiber types, though they’ve been twisted in different directions to offer a coarser appearance.
When describing Berber, the term generally is associated with lighter carpeting hues that have been flecked with darker colors. Berber's natural strength and soil hiding capabilities make it a go-to floor for active areas in the home. Often crafted with a loop-style cut, this product is a popular selection among consumers.
