You’re in the market for new carpet and you want your selection to stand the test of time.  Here are the items to consider: quality, comfort, durability, plus stain and dirt resistance, especially with our Minneapolis winters and the tracking in of snow and dirt. Selecting a carpet style that is truly timeless can provide you with years of satisfaction and enjoyment. Here are three styles that have stood the test of time and earned the title of “classic.”

  • Plush – Also, known as a velvet cut, this straight-cut, densely packed carpet is known for its luxurious look and feel. This style is ideal in more formal areas, like dining and living rooms.plush carpet, living room
  • Frieze – This style is great for higher traffic areas since its texture can really hide footprint trails and dirt. It is a cut pile carpet that is recognizable by its twisted, somewhat informal look.Frieze carpet, family room
  • Berber carpets – Like frieze, Berber carpets are great for higher traffic areas since they are more durable and can hide footprints and other tracks. Berber carpets are an example of loop style construction.Berber Carpet, livingroom

No matter what style you choose, neutral colors and patterns can add to the feeling of timelessness. Since they can match to a variety of furniture colors and styles, they can give you greater flexibility, especially if are considering selling your home in the future.
