Cut pile carpets are those that have the loops at the top that have been cut to create a flat surface. The even top layer of cut carpet makes it perfect for intermediate patterns. Most consider cut pile carpets to have a softer feel underfoot than loop pile; as a result, cut piles are generally more applicable to residential use than loop piles, which lean toward resilience.
Cut piles are typically made of nylon, though the material may also be comprised of polyester, wool, or a composite of synthetic ingredients.
Finding your Cut Pile
The pricing of this listing for cut pile carpets is different than most our other selections; instead the cost per square meter found on most of our other pages, these tiles are sold by the box. A box is usually sixteen tiles. In total, there are sixty-five selections to choose from.
Once you click on a thumbnail, you will find that many of the pages have multiple colour options on each. The pages can contain anywhere from a few to over a dozen colour options, extending the possible choices exponentially.
