What Kind of Padding Is Best For Your Carpet?

Shopping for new carpet? Don't forget the padding. There are many choices!

Beautiful Broadloom Luxury Carpet for your Bedroom

Where do you begin?

Consumers spend most of their time debating over carpet color, styles, and texture. However, equally important is finding the best padding to support the carpet and your feet. Just as your home's foundation is imperative to a lasting home, the cushion below carpet helps increase longevity, improve comfort, and provide insulation.

The padding is important enough that even the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) have specific guidelines and classifications. Currently HUD specifies 2 classes of cushion. Class 1 for light to moderate traffic and Class 2 for multifamily areas, corridors, and stairs. Below are some ideas to help in the floor shopping adventure.

Thickness and Density:

    • Typical carpets require a thickness range between 7/16 to 1/4 inch.

    • For Berber or low profile options chose no more than 3/8 inch thick.

    • Recommended density for Berber is 8 pounds per cubic feet.

    • Professionals and carpet manufacturers recommend 7.5 to 8 lbs for most
      installations.

Bloomsburg Carpet

Material:

  • Prime Polyurethane Foam – made from large pieces of foam, soft, same material used to cushion car seats and furniture. HUD recommends 0.375 thickness, 2.2 lbs per cubic foot. Not recommended for high traffic areas.
  • Frothed Polyurethane Foam – versatile, resistant to furniture indents, and extremely durable. Same material used in carpets with attached foam. Can be used in light, moderate, or heavy traffic areas. HUD minimum standards recommend 0.25 thickness, 10 lbs per cubic foot for light to moderate, and 12 lbs for heavy.
  • Bonded Polyurethane Foam – made from 100% recycled foam scraps bonded to fabric, net, or plastic for added strength. About 85% of installations use this option. HUD standard is 0.375 inch, 5 lbs for light to moderate traffic, and 6.5 lbs for heavy traffic.
  • Flat Rubber – solid, heavy in weight, long-lasting. Good for high traffic areas. HUD standard is 0.22 inch, 18 lbs for light to moderate traffic, and 21 lbs for heavy traffic.
  • Waffled Rubber – spongy, porous material that provides a soft cushy feel. Typically best used in light traffic areas.

Both carpet and padding share an equal importance in maintaining longevity, beauty, and resilience. Recent research defined that carpet with no cushion had an average of 19.3% loss in pile height versus 5-10% loss with a separate cushion. Consumers armed with the best knowledge can find the right combination between both that results in better performance over time. If you would like to learn more, please contact us

The Fashionable Floor for 2017

Carpeting is just one of many tools you use to create a statement in your environment. Whether you are looking to add a certain flair to your home or are redecorating an office, you want the room to project who you are and what you value.

Fashion is cyclical. What was old eventually becomes new again, what was new inevitably becomes dated. Carpeting is no exception to that rule. If you have decided to update the look of your indoor space, here are some trends for 2017 that you might find interesting. This year's trends are geared towards color and texture.

Texture Trends

Texture is everywhere this season, from toss pillows to lampshades. Textured carpeting will add visual interest to your room.

Broadloom
 
  • Broadloom carpeting will give you many options for texturization. With choices from a modern braid to a textured wool, broadloom may be just what you are looking for to complement your décor.

 

Ribbed carpet

  • This texturized carpet has been popular in offices for quite some time. While still popular in the office, it has made its way into the home. While this trend may pass quickly, it is expected to be found in more homes throughout the year.

 

Cut and loop

  • Cut and loop carpeting adds a lot of pattern and texture options and first became popular in the 1970s. This style may have found its way back again because of the variety of pattern options.

 

Geometric patterns

  • Look for either pattern prints or neutrals with a pattern created different yarns within the weave. 
 
Color Trends

 

Colors set the mood for your surroundings. 2017 has trends, but not rules.

  • Neutrals -this year's neutrals are inspired by nature, colors like sand, olive, and camel
  • Greys -also a popular color last year. Choose a deep grey to offset a variety of accent colors
  • Reds and Bold Colors- the furnishings can also be a bold  color or neutral with bold accents
  • Greens- any shade of green, from lime to emerald.

 

Eco-friendly carpets 

The trend towards eco-friendly carpet continues. Environmentally conscious consumers are turning to eco-friendly carpets containing recycled materials. Many are searching for natural fiber blends as well.

A History of the Carpet Loom

Which American Carpet Mill has all three types of carpet weaves?

For thousands of years, carpets have added beauty and luxurious comfort to living spaces. Although it is not known exactly when and where the first carpets were made, historians believe carpets were first produced either by nomadic peoples to use as floor coverings or by settled populations as artistic decorations. A carpet found in the tomb of a Shiite chief in the Pazyryk Valley of Siberia dates to the 5th Century B.C. Its intricate design and fine workmanship provided both insulation from the elements and ornamentation.

Early Looms. Looms hold the longitudinal warp threads under tension while the transverse weft threads are interwoven in the warp. The vertical loom used by early nomads to weave carpets was a warp-weighted loom, with the warp thread hanging from a rod and weighted at the ends. This loom was easily dismantled and carried as the group traveled. By the 10th Century, settled societies produced carpets on horizontal treadle looms, which allowed for longer warp threads and more intricate design opportunities. And the weaver could sit while working!

Carpet Looms in America. Carpet looms made their way to America in the late 1700s. In 1791, William Sprague established the first woven carpet mill in Philadelphia; soon other mills opened throughout New England. By 1839, Erasmus Bigelow developed the first carpet power loom, a mechanized loom propelled by a line shaft. Replacing the making of carpets by hand loom, the invention greatly enhanced carpet production in America.

Loom Additions. A Jacquard mechanism was added to the power loom in 1849. Using punched cards with holes that correspond to rows of design, the Jacquard loom is a precursor to the first punch card computers. The Jacquard loom creates opulent carpets – Axminster carpet with cut pile in intricate design patterns of up to 12 colors and beautiful Wilton carpet in which the multi-color design is combined with different pile options. A velvet loom employs a wire system, resulting in a wide variety of textures and colors and a thick soft pile. Because of their plushness, sound-dampening ability and beauty, Wilton and velvet weave carpets have graced the US House of Representatives since 1902.
