Carpet can make your home feel warm and cozy, but the options are seemingly endless. It can be difficult to decide on a new style. Our team at Floor Coverings International White Bear Lake can help you sort through the choices and find the perfect option for your home in the White Bear Lake, St. Paul, & Minneapolis area.
Saxony carpeting is one of the most common and popular options on the market. Saxony is a traditional cut-pile carpet, and it is what comes to mind for many people when they envision carpet in their home. There are a couple of varieties to consider within the saxony carpet family.
Straight saxony has a plush and velvety texture that is very soft underfoot. Many people prefer this carpet for bedrooms, family rooms, or any other area of the house where comfort is a priority. The fibers on this carpet are cut to an even length and go in the same direction. This is what gives the carpet its plush feel, but it will also show footprints and vacuum tracks more readily. That could be an important consideration when installing straight saxony in your high traffic areas.
Textured saxony is often referred to as “trackless.” This carpet has the same general characteristics of straight saxony, but the fibers are twisted in different directions so the surface will not show footprints, vacuum tracks, and other activity as readily as the straight variety.
Saxony carpeting is available in many different fibers and grades, and the pricing will depend on the selections you make. Because of its dense weave, saxony carpet is a durable option that can stand the test of time in your home. Its traditional look and feel may not make it the trendiest option on the market, but you can be sure it will never go out of style.
