					 The Different Materials Used to Make Carpets
                  and Rugs
Purchasing a carpet is not a decision that should be made lightly. These items can either
complement a room or seem completely out of place. You would have to consider the color and
the finishing thus ensuring it will blend in with your current décor. In addition to this, you have
to consider the material that it is made out of. Some people are allergic to certain materials and
if you do not check this beforehand you could end up burning a lot of money for nothing. Here
are the different types of materials that are used to make carpets and rugs. They are not by any
means all the materials that you will find in the market but these tend to be the most common.

       1. Nylon: At a point in the past, wool was the choice material for most rugs as well as
       carpets. However, the times have changed and nylon has become one of the most
       common materials used to make carpets for homes in this day and age. Typically, you
       will find that most wall-to-wall carpeting is nylon productions. Although nylon may seem
       quite pricey on the onset, they are actually a good investment as these carpets tend to
       last much longer with nylon being such a durable material. Their fabric also does not get
       tangled quite easily. So, you can go about cleaning the carpet without worrying about the
       fibers entangling. Lastly, stain removal is also quite easy when it comes to these rugs as
       the fabric does not allow for much absorption.

       2. Polyester: This is another popular option for carpets and rugs to be used in the home.
       This option is a tad cheaper than the nylon rugs. However, it comes with almost the
       same advantages. For one, they are quite durable so you can be assured that they will
       not succumb to wear and tear after a short period of time. In addition to this they are
       stain resistant so you will not spend hours on end trying to keep them clean.

        3. Wool: As aforementioned, this was a popular option for carpets and rugs in years
       past. However, this started waning when cheaper options came about. Wool is a natural
       fiber and thus it is quite expensive. However, if you do have a restricted budget, this
       would be your best option as carpets made from this material are of high quality.
