Berber carpet, named for the hand-woven carpets made by the Berber people of North Africa, is a versatile choice for any home in the greater Overland Park, Shawnee, Lenexa, Prairie Village area. Known for the durability of its loop pile construction, this carpet will hold up well in high traffic areas. The neutral tones and classic style of Berber carpet make it a warm and inviting background for any home décor.
There is a wide variety in Berber carpet material and construction, and knowing your requirements will ensure you make the right selection for your home. Below are a few considerations when selecting a Berber carpet with Floor Coverings International Kansas City West.
Berber carpet has a distinct look that comes from its characteristic loop pile construction. Large loops make the carpet soft underfoot and give a room a luxurious look and feel. Smaller loops are preferable for high-traffic areas such as hallways or homes with small children or pets since they are less likely to snag or crush over time.
Berber carpet typically comes in neutral tones from light cream to darker beige and gray. The color variation is traditionally small flecks of dark color on lighter shades to resemble the natural, traditional Berber carpets. However, solid shade variations are available as well.
There are multiple fiber options available for Berber carpet, ranging from the higher-priced yet eco-friendly wool to the stain-resistant and highly durable nylon or Olefin fiber. A fiber blend can provide the best of both worlds. Ask a Floor Coverings International Kansas City West expert about your options.
Berber carpet is very durable, but can succumb to pile crushing and fading over time. Understanding proper cleaning and maintenance will ensure your carpet stays in excellent condition.
While the cost of Berber carpet depends heavily on the fiber used in its construction, the price of Berber is generally less expensive than its plush counterparts.
