10 Reasons To Buy Berber Carpet - Articles Surfing

We hear allot about Berber carpet but have you ever wondered where they came from? Berber carpet was named after handmade bulky wool that was textured and used by a tribe in North Africa. The tribe was called the Berber tribe. Now isn't that convenient. The Berber carpet of today follows much of the tradition of the Berber tribe using flecked bulky yarns to create beautiful carpets. Here are 10 reasons to buy Berber carpet over other carpet choices.

1. Unique

The flecked looped yarns used to make Berber carpets provide unique stylish carpets that have a uniqueness that makes a Berber carpet easily identifiable.

2. Choice in Loop Size

You can get various loop sizes in Berber so there is a size for every room and decor. From large rather knobby loops to small tight loops. There are several industry choices including cut and loop designs, multi level loops, and level loops.

3. Hypo-allergenic

Berber is the perfect choice for anyone with allergies or children. It is made from wool so it is non toxic and non allergenic and it stops bacterial growth right in its tracks.

4. Comfortable

The manufacturing process created wool loops that have millions of air pockets in them so the carpet has a nice cushiony feeling when you walk on it. It also has an insulation factor because of the weave which helps regulate the temperature of the room.

5. Hardy

Berber is one of the most durable and easy carpets to clean. Stains are easily lifted and it takes a lot of miles on the carpet for it to show any wear. Berber is well known for its longevity while still looking as new as the day it was installed. It hardly ever shows footprints, and it doesn't show the lines from the vacuum cleaner. The only thing you need to watch is that you don't snag it and damage it.

6. More Affordable

Now there is a little irony here. Pure wool carpet and it's cheaper than nylon, olefin, or any of the man made products while at the same time outlasting them and looking new for much longer. Berber is one of the most affordable choices in carpet and yet it looks richer than many of the other choices available to you.

7. Color Choices

Color choices are mixed and varied and include earthen or neutral colors, dark colors, and even pastel colors. Not only are there plenty of colors to choose from there are plenty of patterns to choose from. Because of the way the carpets are made depending on how the yarns are twisted and the pile density will depend on the look and pattern of the finished rug. Berber offers more choices than almost any other type of carpet.

8. Hide Sub floor

Because of the density of Berber carpet you can easily hide irregularities in the sub floor without spending an arm and a leg to repair or replace the sub floor. This makes Berber very cost effective especially in older homes that are having the rugs redone.

9. Variety of Grades

Just like other carpets you can choose a variety of grades which determine how plush the carpet is. Berber is available in a variety of grades and they even have a product designed to go right over concrete.

10. Economical

Besides being one of the most economical carpets to buy Berber is also one of the most economical carpets to have installed. Because it is an easy carpet to lay you can often find installation at less per square foot than other carpets.

So if you want to add a richness and quality to your home I've given you 10 reasons to buy Berber carpet. So what are you waiting for?
