With Karastan carpet, it's impossible to go wrong. But even so, certain styles
of carpeting do offer a better fit for certain types of consumers and areas, so
here are a few things to give special attention as you are shopping and make
The first thing, of course, is the look. Some people think of patterned
carpets as being the ultimate symbols of elegance; berbers and other loop piles
as ideal for family or high-traffic areas; and, quite often, plush or textured
carpets as offering the best of both worlds. With Karastan Carpet, choosing the
right look is an entirely personal decision, but here are a few points that
might affect your final selection.
For all intents and purposes there are four types of carpet styles: berbers,
plushes, patterns and textures. Within each carpet style is even greater choice.
For example, one can find dense or loose piles; high or low pile heights, tight
or loose densities and so on. This wide range of choice is offered to
accommodate different looks, prices, and qualities. It may all look similar when
one first begins the shopping experience, but there really are many different
styles to consider.
The one single thing to always keep in mind is quality. Because Karastan only
used premium materials, every Karastan carpet will offer superior resistance to
staining, matting, and wear. Check for yourself when you're in the store and
have a chance to make side-by-side comparisons.
First, check the density, which you'll feel by running your hand over the
carpet, and which you can easily see by bending carpet samples and comparing how
much yarn is used in the construction of each product. The higher the fiber
density, the higher the quality, the better resistance to wear and matting.
Second, check the type of material the carpet is constructed from. You should
find it named on the back label of each sample. Many of Karastan’s
top-of-the-line carpets feature 100% pure New Zealand wool, the finest quality
wool in the world. It offers the best combination of luxurious look and feel,
along with practical durability.
And while Karastan wool carpets are the finest made, there's absolutely nothing
wrong with choosing a carpet made of man-made materials like nylon, though you
should opt for the highest-quality nylon you can afford. Quality nylon carpets
offer good resistance to wear, matting and fading, and some of the
highest-quality versions approach wool in its luxuriousness. Ask a knowledgeable
carpet consultant or salesperson to direct you to the best material for your
Third, check for any special detailing such as stain- or matting-resistance
warranties on the label and high density backing which can provide superior
stability. It's well worth your time to investigate all carpet features by
talking both to salespeople and consultants, and to friends and family who've
had good success with their selections.
Finally, don't make the mistake of thinking you can compare the real cost of
different carpets by the price per square foot. There are many factors that
contribute to the affordability of carpet such as the quality of the carpet, pad
and installation service that you have chosen. There are real differences, and
you have real choices. High-quality carpets like Karastan may appear to cost
more initially, but in many cases, will stand up strong to years of daily wear
whereas others may show wear much sooner.
