Shopping for carpet is something that has never been an easy task. To some people, it is more of a chore than fun. For most people, shopping for carpet is a dreaded experience that should be avoided at all possible costs – although they aren’t in this alone!.

Once you realize that others feel the same way, it’s time to go shopping. Frieze is an excellent choice of carpet, one of the most popular types that you can purchase even today. Frieze offers you a lot of benefits without having to compromise anything.

The following are points that you’ll want to consider when you evaluate the durability of the carpet:

1. 75% twist
2. 15% fiber type
3. 10% density

Twist
The twist type of carpet has a spiral shape. It is used via heat method that twists the yarn into its permanent shape. The fibers can have up to seven twists per yarn, as the more twists you have the better. The result in the end is a rustic knotted look that is very appealing.

Fiber type
Frieze carpets are normally made with high quality nylon yarn. Nylon is one of the most popular and most widely used fiber types for wall to wall carpets.

Density
It is very interesting that several people use the density of carpet as their primary factor in
judging quality.

As you may know, carpet can be too dense. The denser a carpet is, the harder it will feel, as the fibers are compacted. The fibers were meant to wear on their sides rather than on the tops,
as they need their room to move.

To help you get a better idea of carpets and the types that stand out, we’ll take a look at several of them below.

Gulistan
Gulistan is actually one of the top manufacturing companies of frieze carpets. The company was a trendsetter early on with innovate styles and a very impressive selection of colors and easy
care. Even though the company is one of the
smallest in the world, it has proven it has what it takes to compete, with it’s high quality nylon frieze that is popular even today.

Laura Ashley
The Laura Ashley company is a name that sports an elegant English country look that continues to grow and inspire. The company brings a lot to the table, from impressive carpets to bed linens, paint, and upholstery fabrics.

Beaulieu Industries
This company licensed the Laura Ashley name and premiered close to two dozen products, which
included a cool frieze carpet. The company has been very successful with their carpets, managing to compete for several years.

The bottom line
Anytime you shop for carpet, no matter what the style may be, you should always know what you want and how it will fit in with your home. Along with frieze carpet, there are many other types such as Berber, loops, high pile, and others that will add quite a bit to your home. Your carpet is very important, and therefore you shouldn’t rush buying it.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get assistance from aprofessional, friend, or a member of your family. Those that have experience with carpet can be a great help when you purchase your own, especially if you don’t have a lot of
experience.

By getting help when you need it, researching, and just taking your time, you’ll have no problems at all shopping for a carpet. Carpets can make or break a home, which is why it is very important that you know what you are buying before you make that critical purchase.
