Advantages of Carpeting
Materials and construction give carpeting inherent virtues that may suit your decorating needs.
    •    Broadloom absorbs sound, an appealing feature for condominiums, town houses, and homes with high ceilings.
    •    Yarn construction and surface texture add soft contrast to a room's angular architecture.
    •    As versatile camouflage, broadloom goes over any existing floor, with no need for a new sub-floor, and it hides uneven surfaces and existing floor damage.
    •    Today, carpet is available with soil, stain, odor, and static-resistant features, and manufacturing techniques have increased its durability and cleanability.

Following are the main carpet categories—texture, twist, loop, and pattern—one of which is sure to add spice to your space:

• Texture—The velvety look and feel of smoothly cut yarns. May be deeply or lightly textured to create a fresh, easy-care surface.
• Twist—The twist is back in this lighthearted carpet trend. It’s relaxed but elegant and sumptuous to the touch.
• Loop—Modern interpretation of handcrafted styling. For active areas, where you want sass and sophistication without worry.
• Pattern—Almost an art form. Cut and uncut loops form distinctive designs, for decorating with originality and flair.
