If you haven’t shopped for carpet in a while, you will be pleasantly surprised. Carpet styling and performance has seen many advances in recent years. Today’s carpet manufacturers are using technology to combine texture, color and pattern to create exciting new looks. You will also see softer fibers, better stain resistance and advanced construction techniques that deliver great feel under foot while being extremely durable.

While some homebuyers are choosing more “daring” carpet and rugs (think floral, plaid, even hounds tooth patterns), neutral carpet, especially loop piles like Berber, is still a popular decorative floor covering choice. Today’s Berbers can provide visual interest underfoot with more extreme differences in pile cut and thicker, deeper loop textures.
