When looking for the perfect carpeting solution for any space, it’s important to weigh the benefits and detriments of each variation. One must be informed on the different styles and cuts to make an informed decision and choose the carpet that suits their aesthetic and functional needs. Below we will break down the pros and cons of textured cut pile carpet to decide if this style of carpeting is right for you and your application.
What Is Textured Cut Pile Carpet?
When a carpet is threaded through the base and cut to length on the top, this is referred to as ‘cut pile’ carpeting. There are many different cuts in this style, but today we’re focusing specifically on textured carpet. This term refers to carpet where each fiber is cut to a length differing from those immediately beside it, creating a varied, textured look and feel as opposed to the smooth, even finish of other carpeting styles. This carpet can be used for many applications and is especially well-suited to living areas and bedrooms.
Pros and Cons:
Choosing a carpet is tough, but if we break down the pros and cons we can achieve a bit of clarity. There are many benefits to a textured cut. Many people choose textured carpets because they hide stains and damage much better than alternatives and their sustainability to wear and tear stand high above the rest. The interesting textures created by the cutting process give the carpet an informal and relaxed look and make this style perfect for a comfy living area or bedroom and the style makes vacuum lines and footprints harder to notice. However, there are some reasons one might want to choose another carpet. The style doesn’t lend itself well to patterns and the carpet might give a room an air of informality or an unprofessional appearance.
While textured carpet might not be the correct choice for a more formal or traditional room, designers looking to keep carpet looking great with less maintenance might find this interesting and cozy carpeting to be a wonderful addition in many applications.
