Carpets can really beautify your home. However, choosing the right type of carpet to put in your home can be daunting. Although carpet is not permanent, you want it to last for a good number of years. There are so many choices, how do you choose the best carpet for your home? Let’s explore a few differences between plush and berber to help you narrow down your choices.
Plush and berber carpets are both beautiful in their own right. They do, however, differ in purpose. It is important to think about where in your home the carpet will be placed. Is it a high traffic area? In that case, berber is your best bet. Its dense, tightly woven loops resist dirt for a cleaner look. Whereas plush is more loosely woven which absorbs more dirt. For these reasons, berber is also lower maintenance, as it is easier to clean. Plush is higher maintenance, as it requires more effort to pull the dirt out. Plush is a great fit in a low traffic area, such as a bedroom. It can make your bedroom feel cozy and comfortable while looking luxurious.
Plush may be a better choice for you if you have a baby or pets because it is so soft. Berber may not be a good choice in this situation because of it’s tightly woven loops. This creates a rougher surface that can cause carpet burns. Also, your pet’s claws can easily get caught in the loops and pull them up.
Both carpets have their benefits. Plush, with its luxurious look and soft feel. Berber, with its elegant designs and durability. Each one will serve its purpose beautifully. Hopefully these comparisons will help you make the right choice that suits your needs. Happy carpet hunting!
