Carpet / April 19, 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.
Twist is Important. Carpeting is made in several different steps. In one step, individual fibers are twisted. After that, they are heat-set so that they retain their shape. The more times a piece of carpeting is twisted, the better its quality is. Carpeting that is spun several times before being heat-set tends to stand up to wear and tear a whole lot better. It's a lot less likely to become frayed, which can dramatically reduce the appearance of a carpet and make it more susceptible to serious damage. You're sure to hear salespeople discussing \"twist,\" so make sure that you have at least some idea about what it means.
