Cozy and Colorful Carpet Brightens a Room
is comfy and cozy underfoot, and it brightens a room with its color too. It is most popular for bedrooms and living rooms. New technology makes specialty brands practical for homes that include pets. Some carpeting is appropriate for a basement, but it should not be put in a kitchen or bathroom. Styles and colors for each type of carpet fiber are numerous. Music City Building Supply has a large selection of carpeting and a variety of other floor coverings at our showroom
in Shelbyville, Tennessee. We are flooring pros that can help you find the best brand for your home. We serve Nashville, Murfreesboro, Huntsville, Chattanooga, and nearby communities.
Nylon has been the go-to fiber for decades. It’s tough and durable, and it usually looks like new years after installation. Nylon carpet is resilient, or able to bounce back after compression. It's often used in living rooms since it handles heavy furniture so well. Also, nylon fibers are often treated to make them stain resistant. The day might come when Triexta overtakes nylon as the most common carpet fiber. This newer fiber is also durable and abrasion-resistant, and it is inherently stain resistant. Wool is the top of the line fiber. Dirt does not become embedded in wool because of its makeup. Consider putting this fire-resistant, natural, and soft flooring in the master bedroom.
These synthetic fibers are also available:
- Polyester - Available in vibrant colors; inherently stain-resistant
- Olefin - Moisture and mildew resistant; great for basements
- Acrylic - Imitates the look and feel of wool at a lower cost
