BERBER CARPET HOUSTON - TYPES, BENEFITS, AND FEATURES

Venetian Blind Carpet One Floor & Home provides high-quality Berber carpet to the Houston area. This versatile carpet style is a popular choice for any room in the home. Once used primarily for home offices and recreational rooms, Berber’s versatility is now utilized in many types of decor.

WHAT IS BERBER CARPET?

The term Berber originally referred to a light, woven carpet with flecks of brown or gray. Because the flecks were found most often in looped styles of carpeting, this resulted in the term Berber becoming associated with looped carpet.

Today, Berber carpeting is available in a wide selection of soft fibers that give a comfortable, cushioned feel. Its low profile, small loops offer a clean and contemporary look with the added benefit of making it more spill and stain-resistant than other types of carpet.

WHAT TYPES OF BERBER CARPET STYLES ARE THERE?

Berber carpeting is now available in many different styles including simple loop, patterned loop, cut and loop, and cut pile. Cut pile is the most popular type of carpet in general. This style is created when fiber loops are cut, ending with the fibers being exposed upright. Loop pile carpeting is created without cutting or shearing the fibers, hence the name.

Cut pile is typically considered softer on the foot, making it an ideal choice for comfortable home carpeting. On the other hand, loop pile is more durable for areas with heavy traffic, such as hallways.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF BERBER CARPET?

Not only is Berber a stain-resistant carpet, but it also offers many other beneficial factors such as a casual look that can fit into nearly any home, office, or high traffic area. Whether for basement, recreational rooms, or commercial buildings, one of Berber’s many carpeting styles may be the right choice.
