Shawnee CarpetSaxony is one of the most common carpet styles found in the greater Shawnee area. Saxony is a great middle-of-the-road carpet option because it is softer than Berber while still durable, and firmer than frieze. It will add a warm and cozy feel to any home and last for many years. The experts at Floor Coverings International Kansas City West outline everything you need to know about Saxony carpet below!

Design of Saxony Carpet

Saxony is known for its plush, velvety design. It is a cut-pile style of carpet with fibers that are all the same height. These fibers are usually about a ½ inch in length and closely packed together. Textured Saxony, while not as common, is another style available. These fibers are twisted in varying directions, giving it a textured, less uniform look. This dense carpet style feels very soft and cozy underfoot, making it a great option for rooms you’ll be walking around barefoot in! Like most carpet styles, it is available in a wide variety of looks from solid teal to speckled black and white.

Shawnee CarpetDurability

Due to Saxony’s dense style, it does hold up well to high volumes of foot traffic. The longevity does vary depending on the carpet fiber chosen. For a long-lasting carpet, we suggest going with a durable fiber such as wool. If you’re looking for a budget-friendly option, we suggest polyester.

A Few Considerations

While Saxony is a great carpet option, it is important to note that straight Saxony does show vacuum marks and footprints more easily. Like all carpet, it needs to be vacuumed 1-2 times per week and given a deep cleaning at least once a year.
