What is Frieze Carpet?
Frieze carpet is like the modern descendant of shag carpeting from the 1960s and ‘70s. It’s one of the most popular types of carpet for its comfort, style, and durability. Characterized by long fibers that have been tightly twisted together, frieze has a soft feel and casual look that makes it perfect for bedrooms or family rooms. Frieze also falls into the category of trackless carpet, meaning that it helps hide footprints and vacuum tracks.
Reasons to Choose Frieze Carpet
Frieze is a good choice if you need a durable carpet that will stand up to foot traffic. Its long, tightly twisted fibers are strong and secure, meaning they will resist fraying over time. The carpet’s uneven texture is also good at hiding dirt.
Frieze carpeting is also great for hiding seams – ideal if you are installing it in large rooms (where the room is wider than the carpet size) or stairs and hallways (around corners and picketed railings). While other carpets may show a line where the pieces have been attached together, frieze blends effortlessly to hide seams.
Frieze’s long, loose texture and soft fibers make it very comfortable to walk or sit on. If you like to walk around the house barefoot or play on the floor with kids and pets, you’ll appreciate the comfort of frieze carpet.
What About Cleaning?
The main drawback to frieze carpet is that it can be a challenge to clean spills and stains. Its loose texture allows liquids to spread, rather than containing them to a limited area. To ensure your carpet looks good for a long time, ask about stain resistance and warranties when making your decision.
