If you’ve been researching carpet for your home, Berber carpet likely popped up as an option. Berber is admired and loved for its durability and versatility, and its usually neutral tones that provide a warm background to any home decor aesthetic.
Modern Berber carpets are now being used for more than just basements, schools, and office spaces. With great color offerings matched with durability and affordability, it really makes them ideal for use in any area of the home.
If you’re not sure if Berber is right for you, hopefully you will find this list of benefits to be helpful:
- Low Cost
Berber is generally less expensive than traditional pile carpet styles and is often seen as a great value. This means you can add a beautiful, aesthetic look to your home without making a significant investment. However, it is important to note that the price range can still vary when looking at the different types of materials the Berber carpet is constructed with. For example, wool is going to cost more than a nylon or olefin fiber.
All Berber carpets are made using a rugged looped pile that runs in parallel lines. The loops range in size from tight to loose. The majority of Berber carpeting is made of one of three different fibers, or a blend. The fibers used determine the price, durability, and stain-resistance of the carpet. In short, Olefin is the most common fabric found in Berber carpeting. Wool and nylon are harder to find and more expensive. Blends of nylon and olefin are also common.
Berber carpet is incredibly durable. The main reason for this is because looped fiber tends to be much stronger than cut fiber.
- Low Maintenance
As with any carpets it is recommended that you use a low-moisture or dry cleaning process every 6-12 months to keep it clean, and to ensure furniture and foot traffic do not cause permanent indentations.
