Nylon vs. polyester: what’s the difference?

You may have heard a great deal about nylon and polyester during your search for perfect carpeting, which is often spoken of together. However, the difference between the two could be significant for your use, and we're going to tell you more about them in today’s post so read along with us now.

Fibers matter when it’s time to choose carpeting

Fiber choice is significant to the lifespan and durability of your flooring. You'll need a fiber suited to the lifestyle and traffic levels it will be a part of, and we have some information that could help you choose.

Nylon fibers are known for their strength and resiliency, with lots of “bounce back” for areas that see lots of heavy traffic. As one of the most popular fibers, it sees lots of attention, as it’s used to create so many different carpet types.

Polyester offers beautiful color and better stain protection than nylon, which can be important for homeowners with pets or children. It’s also a softer fiber, making it a preferred fiber option in bedrooms, studies, and children’s rooms.

When you're ready to see these fibers in person, be sure to visit our showroom, where our associates will be happy to help you browse. Share your requirements and preferences, and we'll see that you receive the best options.
