Carpet / April 11, 2018 / Evelyn Burnett
Don't Forget Pile Height. One thing that you're sure to see noted in the descriptions of most types of carpeting is pile height. This is self-explanatory enough: It refers to how high above the backing individual fibers extend. The taller those pieces are, the greater the pile height is. Although some claim that high pile heights equal fragile carpet, the truth is that ultra-low pile heights only make sense for stairways, where safety has to be a top concern. Otherwise, it's perfectly fine and desirable for carpeting to have a decent pile height.
The outdoors is increasingly becoming an important part of our homes. Outdoor hearths and furniture are the perfect relaxation areas in the comfort and privacy of your own back yard. Pools, spas and hot tubs provide a personal luxury. With an indoor outdoor carpet, you can lay the perfect foundation and finishing touches for your outdoor spaces. Creating your own spa is not difficult in your own back yard or patio. The carpeting can be as luxurious as a Roman or Persian print with the convenience of the easy to care for indoor outdoor carpeting. Another idea is creating a play area outside for your kids by laying down the indoor outdoor carpet in a hop scotch pattern, or with race lines for racing hot wheel cars. The ideas are endless. The area will be easy to keep clean because the low pile of the carpet does not hold dirt or debris. A quick run with the vacuum or a wash with the hose makes the end of the day clean up a snap.
