How to select the best carpet for your project

A carpet installation, whether wall-to-wall or one of our custom area rugs, will glamorize your home, giving it a luxurious, stylish, and elegant feeling. That, combined with a multitude of benefits from improving indoor air quality to eliminating noise and insulating temperature, will always make it one of the most popular flooring choices. While they might all look the same, it's essential to keep in mind that every rug has specific characteristics and grades that may make it more suitable for some installations than others. At Network Interiors, we have a fully stocked inventory from the industry's most well-known and trusted names. Here's some necessary information to help complete your journey.

Consider the room in which it's to be installed

When you walk into our carpet store in Glenwood Springs, CO, you will see hundreds of colors, patterns, designs, and styles, and it's easy to get distracted. However, we caution our customers to slow down and think first about the room in which it's to be installed. When the rug fully meets your needs, it will be long-lasting and always look and perform well. For example, the iconic shag, which has long, loose fibers, can be an excellent addition to the bedroom but won't work as well on stairs where the priority is safety, durability, and easy cleaning. It is so plush it won't wrap correctly around railings and banisters without providing a stable, slip-free foundation on which to walk. Moreover, those long fibers can be difficult to keep clean.

Know fiber

Fiber refers to the material from which the rug strands are made. It's the most important decision you'll be making when selecting a rug because fiber affects functionality and aesthetics. There are both natural and synthetic strands, and each has specific characteristics that may appeal to various individuals. Wool is the most common natural, while synthetics include nylon, known for strength, and polyester, with superior inherent stain resistance. Olefin is budget-friendly, while Triexta is strong with permanent stain resistance built into the fiber.
