Carpet / April 19, 2018 / Anita Griffith
First and foremost, men and women will want a general idea of the kind of carpet they wish to buy. Traditional carpet will be cut to neatly fit the dimensions of the entire room. For basements that are especially cold during the months of fall and winter, carpeting can provide a bit of warmth. If one of the basement rooms has been converted into a game area with a pool table and other fun devices, then some sort of carpeting can create a softer atmosphere for all those will be using the room.
Density Matters. Out of all of the factors that determine quality in a carpet, density has to be among the most important. The denser a carpet is, the more resilient and durable it's going to be. This makes all kinds of sense and doesn't really need a lot of explanation. When the tufts that make up carpeting are packed closely together, it is considered to be dense; when they are spaced far apart, the carpeting is considered to be sparser. When you are looking at a sample, bend it back. If the backing is easy to see, it's not dense carpeting. You should also press into the carpeting; if you can feel the backing with ease, you're not holding very dense carpeting.
