If you’re looking for a soft and luxurious feel underfoot, saxony or cut pile could be a good choice. In cut pile carpets, the loops have been cut to create fibers that stand straight up. The result is a plush look and feel. In Saxony carpets, two or more fibers are twisted together and cut, which gives a soft texture. Footprints and vacuum tracks can be more visible on Saxony carpets, so just keep that in mind when considering it for your home. If these tracks will bother you, consider installing this carpet style in a low traffic area where it won’t require as frequent of vacuuming.
Plush carpeting is another soft style that works well in more formal settings. The carpet is dense and thick with even fibers that create a clean, uniform appearance. It’s sometimes referred to as “velvet carpet” because of its velvety appearance. It comes in low, medium, and high pile cuts. The high pile has the thickest plush look, but you will have an easier time maintaining medium or low pile carpet.
Carpets For High Traffic Areas
For those considering carpeting for kids’ rooms, especially if your kids play in their rooms frequently, Berber carpet is a perfect fit. Berber carpets are dense and compact with low-looped fibers. Generally, the yarn used for this style is thicker than others, which makes it very durable. Many families opt to install carpet in bedrooms, family rooms, and other areas where kids frequent because of the safer surface it provides in the event of a fall. For those Walnut Creek homeowners with four-legged family members, one caveat of Berber is the small loops can sometimes be snagged by pets’ claws.
