Think about how the room is used. In high-traffic areas, consider a dense loop pile carpet made of durable nylon. For rooms with exterior doors, pet access, or where food and drinks are often served, you’ll want a low-pile carpet with soil and stain resistant treatments, and one that hides the tracks from frequent vacuuming. For low-activity spaces like bedrooms and formal living rooms, a soft, plush Saxony offers luxurious comfort. Follow the link below to find more information from Shaw carpets on selection and care.
