Low pile vs. high pile carpets
The choice of a carpet is not only about colour, design and dimensions - it is also about the pile! Carpets come in all kinds of stacks, from very low to very high, and you should always consider which one is right for your room before making a sale. To make it a little bit simpler for you, we have chosen to put our leader on carpet stacks!
First, we will make one thing clear: What exactly is a pile of carpets? These terms refer to the cloth loop in the floor. Deep pile carpets have short and narrow looping, while high pile carpets have larger and loose looping. Lower pile carpets are 1/4" or less. Normally we use low pile carpets in a room such as a galley or sludge area (e.g. indoor/outdoor carpets with plain).
We do not restrict ourselves to these areas - sometimes a sleeping or living area simply requires this kind of carpet! Deep pile carpets are great because they are easily vacuumed and cleaned, they help keep food allergens out of the fibres, and they help to provide a sleek finish that is ideal for busy areas.
Remember that a low pile rug does not give the same comfort and warmness as a bit more softness. Middle/high pile carpets are slightly larger than 1/4". Our carpets are often used with average to high pile density in residential rooms and dormitories where we want things to look more comfy. Carpets with a higher pile work better on carpets than those with a lower pile.
This carpet is known for its cosy, welcoming and luxury atmosphere. An high pile carpet shows recesses in cabinet bones more than a low pile. After all, high pile carpets are more difficult to keep neat because dust and deposits can easily be entrapped in the fibres. A last tip: A carpet with a higher pile does not mean better qualities and longer life.
We often see that low pile carpets last longer because they are simpler to care for and less prone to abrasion. It' s important to look at the fibre contents, because durable carpets are made from high grade fibres, regardless of the pile (our favourite is a handtufted).
