Carpet: A tried and true family favorite

After a long day of work or when you wake up on a cold, Virginia winter morning, few things can take the stress out of the day like carpet. Kick-off your shoes, sit down, and scrunch your toes into the soft tufts. We, at Fashion Floors Roanoke, know our way around a roll of carpet and would love to help you discover a perfect rug for you and your home.

Options abound

Sometimes the possibilities can seem overwhelming when it comes to carpet floors. There are cut-pile twists, which is just a fancy way of talking about the typical "fuzzy" rug that is often placed in the home. There is a specialized version of the twist called a Saxony carpet, which gives you that velvety look that shows you every vacuum cleaner mark that goes across it. Another specialized version of the twist is the frieze, which is a twist with very tightly wound tufts. These tufts curl around, but their tight twist protects them from fraying, making it a very wear-resilient broadloom for high traffic areas. The options do not stop there. Another very popular option is Berber. These are loop-pile carpets that combine the durability of a commercial loop with the softness of a residential twist. Many of these also are available in a patterned style, which can add a unique touch to your flooring. If patterns are something that catches your eye, then there are also patterns in a combination of cut and loop piles that are striking to see.
