Loop Pile Vs Cut Pile Carpet | What’s The Difference?
Hi, Ian from Parrys Flooring Solutions here. Who doesn’t like a nice soft carpet in their house?
A lot of people nowadays are putting hard floors throughout all the main walking areas. But in your bedrooms and your home theatre; a soft carpet is still the rage.
There are two types of soft carpets you can choose from for their style, being loop pile carpet with texture and design. The other one is a cut pile carpet. Basically, a cut pile carpet was a loop pile when it was born, but they just cut the top off and the loops becomes a cut pile.
Loop pile carpets are fantastic and beautiful floors. They can have varying heights to do with their loop that gives them different textures and different designs. They are also very durable and hard wearing carpets.
Cut pile carpets are considered to be a lot softer, have a nicer feel under your feet; especially for your home theatres and your main bedroom. With a cut pile carpet, in time, it can wear a lot faster than a loop pile carpet because traditionally it can flatten with time.
At the end of the day, it all comes down to trends and carpet fashion designs. But for your taste the only way you can select carpet is to come and see, touch and feel.
Come into one of our Parrys stores, five stores around Perth, speak to one of our experts and they can explain the difference and show you all the different types and where is the best place to lay a cut pile versus a loop pile carpet.
