Benefits of Saxony Carpet
When covering a large area, Saxony carpet is a great option. This is perhaps the most common type of carpet found in homes and apartments throughout Bozeman, and it is the style that typically comes to mind when people think about the look of wall-to-wall carpeting.
Saxony carpet is a cut-pile carpet versus loop-pile, such as Berber, and the fibers are cut to an even height, giving this floor covering a clean and neutral appearance. There are two varieties of Saxony carpet: straight and textured. Both are quality options depending on the style of your home, the room you would like to carpet, and the carpet maintenance you are willing to do.
Because it is a popular and neutral option, Saxony carpet is a great choice for new homes, rentals, or a home you are preparing to sell. It will appeal to potential buyers, and not distract from the other features throughout the house.
Saxony Carpet Styles
Straight Saxony carpet has smooth fibers, which are soft and velvety underfoot. This style is perfect for bedrooms, home offices, and other low traffic areas. However, this style is also known to show all footprints and vacuum tracks, and most homeowners avoid placing it in high traffic areas.
Textured Saxony, sometimes called trackless carpet, is a great option for active households and high traffic spaces. The fibers on this carpet are kinked and twisted in different directions giving it a more casual appearance. This style also hides dirt and debris that is tracked into the home, and vacuum tracks are naturally hidden in the texture of the fiber.
The durability of Saxony carpet really depends on the quality of the fiber and the manufacturing standards. High quality fibers, such as wool or nylon, will stand the test of time in your home while lower quality carpets, made from polyester or another synthetic material, will need to be replaced more frequently.
