How to choose Carpet?

You should prioritize functionality while shopping for a new carpet. Before settling on the perfect carpet, ask yourself these questions:

  1. What exactly is the function of this space?
  2. How many people visit it every day?
  3. Does this space get a lot of natural light?
  4. Does the lighting fluctuate during the day?
  5. Are there indoor or outdoor areas close by?
  6. How frequently should I expect to have to vacuum it?

Types of Carpet Styles

Cut fibers, looped fibers, or a combination of the two are used to create carpets. All carpets may be categorized into one of these three broad categories despite the fact that there are many more specific types. In the past, carpets with a higher pile height were softer and more sumptuous, but they were also more difficult to maintain. Because of advancements in technology and fiber systems, nowadays most fashions are both comfortable and long-lasting. A carpet with greater texture will hide more footprints and fingerprints and will be less noticeable when dirty.

Carpet Fiber
  1. Cut Pile
  2. The density of the tufts, the degree of twist in the yarn, and the kind of fiber used all contribute to the wear resistance of a carpet with a cut pile. The stronger the twist, the more durable the form, making it perfect for busy public spaces.

    Cut Pile Carpet
    • Plush (Velvet): Footprints and vacuum traces are more visible on this dense and plush surface. Ideal for less-frequently-used spaces or more formal situations.
    • Textured plush: Most adaptable in terms of aesthetics. Footprints and vacuum marks are less noticeable on textured carpets. Ideal for families with many occupants. A wonderful carpet for the whole home.
    • Saxony: Exhibits a smooth finish that is ideal for use in the family room or dining area.
    • Frieze: The tightly twisted strands provide the carpet a "curly" textured appearance, which conceals footprints and vacuum lines. Perfect for high-traffic locations.
    • Shag: The shag frieze is an extremely tall pile height frieze that has become popular for vintage decor.
    • Cable: Also like a frieze, but with varying fiber thicknesses to provide visual interest.
  3. Loop Pile
  4. Both single-level and multi-level loops exist. These carpets are great for corridors and family rooms, which get a lot of foot traffic, since the yarn points don't wear out as quickly.

    Loop Pile Carpet
    • Level loop pile: The loops are all the same height for a unified appearance. This design often holds up well even in heavily traveled locations. Many of the most well-liked Berber cuts now are level-loop cuts that have specks of a deeper color on a lighter backdrop.
    • Multi-level loop pile: Good durability and a genuine three-dimensional appearance are hallmarks of this technique, which often employs two to three varying loop heights to generate pattern effects.
  5. Cut-Loop Pile
  6. This kind of carpet, as the name suggests, is woven from both cut and looped strands. Look for interesting surface patterns like squares, chevrons, and swirls that were created by the use of sculpting. The patterned colors are effective in hiding dirt and grime.

Types of Carpet Fibers

Carpet fibers may be either synthetic or natural. Each individual has unique characteristics.

  • The most common choice is nylon. It can withstand a lot of wear before falling apart. Because it is not very effective at removing stains, certain kinds come with a treatment that makes it more stain-resistant.
  • Olefin is a useful material for outdoor and basement carpets due to its resistance to moisture, mold, and mildew. The material is more durable than nylon, but less pleasant to walk on.
  • Acrylic is often substituted for wool because of its lower cost. It's hard to get your hands on.
  • The only natural fabric used in carpet production is wool, making it the superior option. It is an eco-friendly option that is also long-lasting and resistant to spills.

How to judge quality of the carpet?

Carpet manufacturers' promises of providing a universal quality rating should be disregarded. Rather, think of how heavy and dense something is.

  • The carpet's fiber count is represented by its weight. A carpet with more fibers will be heavier and of better quality.
  • The density of a pile reveals both the total number of fibers and their degree of packing. Greater density is preferable. Feeling the carpet's backing with your fingertips is a good "field test" for determining its density.

How to use carpet calculator?

The carpet cost estimator is surprisingly straightforward despite its seeming complexity. By following these simple steps, you can quickly determine the cost of a carpet of any size or form.

  1. Calculate the area of the Carpet. If you want to do math on your own, use the formula given below.
  2. Once you know the area of the carpet, multiply it with the rate of carpet per unit area to find out the cost of the carpet.

How to calculate cost of carpet?

  • Calculate the Area of Carpet using following formula.
    1. Rectangular Carpet
    2. Carpet area = Carpet's width * Carpet's length
    3. Circular Carpet
    4. Carpet area = π * radius²
    5. Polygonal Carpet
    6. Carpet area =
      No. of sides/tan (180 / No. of sides)
      * length 2
    7. Oval (Elliptical) Carpet
    8. Carpet area = π * Axis A * Axis B
  • Cost of the carpet = Carpet area * Carpet price per unit
