History: Modern carpet goes all of the way back to the ancient times, when families passed hand-tying and knotting skills from generation to generation. During the Sixteenth Century, explorers came home to Europe, bringing with them these gorgeous rugs from the East. In no time, everyone began to really appreciate floor covering textiles. After that, they made their way to America and have been an integral part of homes since then!
Wool: Wool is the most desired and luxurious fiber available. It’s also the most expensive. Natural Wool is a stain resistant as well as long wearing product. We always have hundreds of rolls of real Wool carpet, and we offer the best value in the market for cost conscious consumers. We have a whole room full of roll after roll of Luxurious Wool Carpet at unbelievably low prices.
Synthetic: The majority of carpet produced within the United States is made out of synthetic fibers, such as Nylon, Olefin and Polyester. Synthetics offer a specific wear, feel and most importantly — cost benefits. We have HUNDREDS of rolls of synthetic fiber carpet from which to choose. We’ll be happy to help you choose the right carpet for your specific needs.
Weaves: There are seven basic carpet weaves: Textured, Berber, Saxony or Plush, Cut and Loop, Commercial, Frieze and Cable.
Texture: Textured carpet has become very popular. It is made by alternating twists of yarn, which creates a two-tone appearance. This helps to minimize the appearance of footprints and vacuum marks.
Berber/Looped: Berbers are a looped style carpet. Berbers are large and bulky yarns that are produced in a level loop, or multi-level loop construction. They wear well in active areas, but seams may be quite noticeable.
Cut and Loop: A combination of cut and looped yarns that create pattern effects with the variation in textures. This is also known as patterned carpet. Cut and loop has become very popular as well due to the multitude of patterns that are available. We carry Cut and Loop carpets with geometrics, floral, classic pin dots and creative animal patterns.
Saxony/Plush: This is a very formal, smooth and level cut pile carpet. Footprints and vacuum marks are much more visible with a Saxony style.
Commercial: Carpets made for commercial uses are made of a tighter weave of synthetics that are specifically designed for both long wear and easy maintenance. They are a practical choice for any commercial use, but are also frequently used in residential applications.
Frieze: This is a different cut pile style of carpet that has a high twist level. Each strand is twisted so tightly that it actually curls over at the end. Friezes are pretty durable, which is great for busy homes!
Cable: Carpet is constructed of thicker and longer yarn. It feels great on your feet, however it can also become worn down easily in high traffic areas.
Padding: This is the cushion that goes between the carpet and the existing floor. A properly chosen pad will act as a sound barrier and insulator between a cold sub floor and your feet. Good padding will extend carpet life and also provide that “walking on a cloud” comfortable, luxurious feeling. Specific styles of carpet call for specific pads. We always work with you to make sure that you get the right pad for the job and type of carpet you choose.
Color and Aesthetic: Choosing carpet from the tiny swatches at most carpet stores can be misleading. It’s almost impossible to judge weave, texture, and color from a tiny sample. At CarpetRemnants.Cheap,you choose your carpet by the roll. You will be able to see exactly what it will look like on your floor. We’ll even cut samples so you can check color against your furniture and accessories.
