Carpet is an ancient but beautiful idea. Modern carpet traces its roots to ancient times, when cultures passed hand-tying and knotting skills from generation to generation.
Carpets and rugs have been around in America since the 16th century and has became one of the most fundamental and beautiful parts of our modern home interior. Carpet continues to be popular for many reasons, including:
- Relatively inexpensive
- Comfortable underfoot
- Easier to install and replace
- Fashion options to meet every style and décor
- Warmer, softer and quieter
Your lifestyle, the carpet construction and fiber content need to be taken into consideration. Understanding the drawbacks and attributes of the different carpet types will help you confidently choose the appropriate carpet for your home.
