Carpet / April 18, 2018 / Kaye Cooper
Many people have started replacing area rugs with carpet tiles. The advantage to this is, although area rugs will protect a floor in high traffic areas and beautify a room, it can be slippery. The edges turn up on occasion and can cause a slip. With carpet-tiles, you can create the same effect and get the same use of an area rug that will remain into place without an edge curling up. Carpet-tiles come in an assortment of shapes and sizes. They also are available in a variety of thickness, just like a carpet wood. You can get thick to thin, depending on your need. Another asset to carpet-tiles is the come in an overwhelming number of colors and patterns. This makes it easy to tie into any decor in your room, matching any color scheme you'd like to create.
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.
