Carpet Inspiration

Carpet Store in East Harwich, MA

If the carpet in your living room resembles landscaping, it may be time to update. If you haven't visited your local carpet store lately, you'll likely be a bit overwhelmed by the number of available options. When purchasing modern carpets, homeowners have so much more to consider than color. Lifestyle, carpet construction, and fiber content are all very relevant factors. Our staff can explain the attributes and drawbacks of the different choices so you can confidently choose the ideal carpet for your home.
Types of carpet
Cut pile or plush carpet has loops that have been trimmed to make the ends of the yarn stand up, creating a soft, comfortable cushion for the feet. Plush carpet can be either flat or textured; the latter option makes footprint and vacuum marks less visible.

Berber carpet has complete yarn loops that create a flatter, nubby texture with more durability than plush carpet. It has an elegant, uniform look that appeals to many homeowners, and can be a solid color or variegated.
Carpet fiber
Synthetic fiber carpet is made from artificial materials such as polyester, nylon, and olefin. Nylon is the most popular synthetic choice for carpets, and also the most expensive. Prolonged exposure to the sun will damage nylon carpet.

Olefin carpet is a synthetic fiber carpet that is reasonably priced and easy to care for. It is usually pretreated for fade resistance, making it an appropriate choice for outdoor patios or basement rec rooms.

Polyester is less durable than nylon and less expensive, with softer fibers. Polyester should not be exposed to sunlight or heat. Like olefin, polyester is made from strong fibers that are perfect for high-traffic areas. Because of the strength of these fibers, they are a bit harder to clean and get dirty more easily than other types of fibers.
Carpet warranties
A carpet product warranty is an indication of a carpet's quality, but should not necessarily be the deciding factor. Most homeowners replace carpet before the warranty expires.

When you're ready to purchase new carpet for your home, visit the East Harwich showroom of RPM Carpets and Floor Coverings. We have an unsurpassed selection of all types of carpets in a range of color and style combinations to fit every budget.
