The carpeting world is vast and can easily be confusing for a novice. Which considering the fact that most of us can count on one hand the number of times they have purchased new carpeting, almost all of us are novices. Depending on your budget and the things that you find important in carpeting, carpet preferences can differ wildly from person to person. That is why the team here at Nip & Tuck Carpet Repair wants to simply provide you with information regarding different carpet styles so that you can make the best decision for you. Today we are going to review the pros and cons of frieze carpet.
What is Frieze
Frieze carpeting consists of long, twisted fibers. Fibers are twisted tightly, three to five times. This creates a dense texture. Extremely durable, frieze carpet is quite popular for high traffic areas and busy households. Because of the shag-like fibers, frieze is also terribly good at masking dirt. While not the most expensive, frieze is also not the cheapest of carpet options. Ranging on the low end from $1 per square foot, to on the high-end costing $8 per square foot.
Frieze carpet is highly durable. Its long-twisted fibers are much to thank. They do not easily show footprints, seams, or vacuum lines either, so your carpet will always look plush. Frieze does exceptionally well in almost any area of the home. It’s durable enough for the living room and stairs and is soft enough to greet your feet first thing in the morning in your bedroom.
Frieze has long and loose fibers. They feel lovely to walk on, but they can make it difficult to clean. This is because unlike short, tight piles, frieze fibers allow spills to soak deep into the carpet. For this reason, be sure to purchase a carpet with a high stain resistance. Another draw back for some may be the fact that frieze is relatively casual. It easily goes well with any interior, but if you prefer a more proper look, this carpet may not be right for you.
In conclusion, frieze carpet is an ideal choice for people who want a carpet that is durable, yet comfortable. We service all types of carpet. So, if yours ever needs a little TLC, be sure to give us a call! And for more insightful carpeting tips and tricks, be sure to check out the rest of our blog pages.
