The best carpet flooring for living rooms

The best carpet flooring for living rooms

A living room is a hubbub of activity, so the carpet installed in this space must be tough or able to tolerate high foot traffic. 1 Stop Interiors in Bellingham, WA, has many styles and fibers suitable for living rooms.

Nylon, a long-standing homeowner favorite, is always a good choice for the busiest home spaces.


Nylon is treated in the factory for stain resistance, so liquid spills stay close to the surface rather than seeping through to the backing.

In addition, this durable carpet fiber is known for its resilience, or ability to bounce back after compression from furniture or footsteps. Triexta is also a long-lasting fiber, and it is naturally waterproof and, therefore, highly stain resistant.

Loop vs. cut fibers

Fiber loops are sewn on a backing that can be cut at the tips to create additional styles. Looped styles do not show footprints, and while they tend to be more durable than styles crafted with cut fibers, they are not quite as soft underfoot.

But superior cut pile carpeting has densely packed fibers tightly twisted, making it a good option for a living room.

Berber carpet

A Berber soft surface features distinctive tightly woven looped fibers that wear well in high-traffic areas.

This style, inspired by carpet perfected by the North African Berbers, is also perfect for living rooms because it hides dirt well and, thus, is an excellent alternative to solid dark colors. Classic styles have a beige background that is highlighted by gray and brown dots.
