When shopping for carpets, there are many different choices available. Whether you want a carpet with angular patterns or one with finer patterns, the right material will make the difference. There are many different styles and designs of carpets, and we’ve listed the most popular in this article. Listed below are the main types of carpets to consider: Patterned, Tufted, Berber, Twisted pile, Loop pile, and Belgian

Patterned Carpets

While carpets with patterns look great, there are some dangers associated with them. They may absorb urine, which can saturate the subfloor and the padding beneath the carpet. Removing a stain may require removing the entire carpet, padding, and subfloor. For these reasons, it is recommended to avoid carpets with patterns if you have children or pets. Children who are in the potty training stage may be especially careful around patterned carpets. Although, if you are not keen on getting rid of your patterned carpet, Magic Dry Carpet Cleaning can get rid of even the toughest of stains on your carpet.

Tufted carpets

Tufted carpets are a beautiful choice for any room, but a few maintenance tips are required to keep them looking great for many years. When choosing a hand-tufted rug, you should focus on the quality of the yarn and the backing. Run your hands through the pile and check for resilience. Look for thick, resilient strands of yarn that don’t shed easily. If it sheds easily, it’s probably a good idea to avoid it.

Berber Carpets

If you’re interested in buying a carpet that has a unique look and feel, you’ll probably be interested in Berber carpets. These hand-woven carpets were traditionally made by the Berber people who live in the Sahara region of North Africa. They are available in both modern and traditional designs and can be distinguished by different fabric textures and knot patterns.

Twisted Pile Carpets

A twist pile carpet is one that has short, dense fibres and is firm underfoot. These carpets can come in plain, heathered, or striped versions. The firmness of the pile will prevent them from flattening or crushing. Depending on the style, these carpets can be a great choice for both formal and casual living rooms. There are a large variety of styles of twisted carpets. If you’re unsure which style you want, you can ask for samples to feel each one and make sure it is perfect for your home.

Loop Pile Carpets

Loop pile carpets have a unique texture that’s reminiscent of a rope. Loops of different lengths are stitched together to form relief patterns, making them durable and easy to maintain. The style is versatile enough for both residential and commercial settings. Wool, nylon, and polyester are common materials for loop pile carpets. There are several different types of loop pile carpets, each with its own unique look and feel. Loop pile carpets can be found in many different colours, textures, and materials.

Persian Carpets

A Persian carpet, also known as an Iranian carpet, is a thick textile created in Iran (formerly known as Persia), used for domestic usage as well as for local and international trade. Iranian art and Persian culture both heavily rely on carpet weaving. The Persian carpet distinguishes out among the Oriental rugs made in the “rug belt” nations for the variety and complexity of its numerous designs.

Belgian Carpets

Among the many benefits of Belgian carpets is the diversity of the designs and textures. Carpets produced in Belgium can be found in many different colors and textures, from neutral tones to graphic drawings. They are durable, absorb noise and are easy to clean. For the best coverage of a room, it is advisable to leave at least ten to fifteen cm between the wall and the carpet. Designers recommend that there should be a gap of 10 to 15 cm between the carpet and the wall, so that the carpet will not be seen through the wall.
