When making a carpeting decision, a consumer is confronted with five basic fiber choices. Wool, the only natural fiber used in wall to wall carpeting, is soft, resilient, and highly durable. It can also fade in sunlight and be fairly expensive. Nylon is the recipient of such technological advances as built in resistance to stains, fading, and static electricity. For these reasons alone, nylon is the most popular choice for carpeting. Acrylic feels and looks like wool at a lower cost than nylon, but it is not nearly as crush resistant. Polyester, too, offers a soft feel. Polypropylene produces strong, durable, inexpensive carpets that are well suited for informal, high traffic areas. Of course, fiber choice is just one of many decisions you need to make when you’re choosing a new carpet. Add in color, density, style, padding and the decision can become overwhelming.
