Many people remember shag carpet from the 1970’s – and the weave is making a comeback and we’re happy to be offering here at Pacific Kitchen Bath & Flooring. This type of carpet relies on a deep pile, or long fibers, to create the fluffy or “sheep dog” texture. These rugs feel great on bare feet, and create a dramatic statement in a room. Modern shag carpets are typically one color, which enhances the sense of soft texture in the carpet or rug.
Shag carpets are a variety of cut carpet, meaning the loops are cut after the fibers have been woven into the backing. These days, shag comes in many pile lengths, allowing people to choose a shag that works best for their room and their long-term needs in terms of care and maintenance. Long shag is the best known type of shag carpet, but short shag is about half the length of long shag, and still offers a luxurious softness. There is even a mini shag, which can look more like an extra fluffy cut carpet. Shag carpet in Orange County is especially popular, because it brings a softness to every space, from studio apartments to sprawling ranch-style homes.
For people who love shag carpet, but want something more durable for high-traffic areas, frieze carpet is a great solution. Sometimes confused with short shag, frieze carpet fibers are actually twisted, creating a knobbier appearance or texture. This style is less soft, but can withstand more use for longer. Frieze carpet in Orange County is very popular in both offices and homes.

Loop (Berber) Carpet
The highest quality and widest variety of loop carpet in Orange County can be found at Pacific Kitchen Bath & Flooring.The term loop carpet refers to carpet whose texture comes from uncut, woven loops of fiber. All carpet begins its journey as loop, but at some point during the manufacturing and design stage, the loops are either left intact, or cut. The loops are then fastened to the carpet’s backing, which prevents them from losing their sturdiness or texture over time. Loop carpet, sometimes referred to as Berber carpet, is a great choice for high-traffic areas in a home or office, because of its durability in terms of resisting regular wear and tear.
Although some people use “loop” and “Berber” carpet interchangeably, Berber carpet actually refers to a specific type of loop carpet. These involve large loops of natural fibers, like wool or olefin, woven in a variety of sizes. Berber carpets are more stain resistant than some other varieties, and are denser, which can make them a great option for places that need extra insulation. Southern California homeowners love the feel of this weave, which is one reason why Berber carpet in Orange County is very popular.
The other major type of loop is level loop carpeting, woven from tufted loops at equal heights. While there is little textural excitement to level loops, colors or patterns can be created, and these carpets are extremely durable. They are often used in commercial settings, due to their longevity. Pacific Kitchen Bath & Flooring offers the widest selection of high quality level and Berber carpet Orange County needs for businesses and homes.

Cut and Loop Carpet
Want to know more about cut and loop carpet in Orange County? Pacific Kitchen Bath & Flooring is here to help. To start with, lush, rich patterns in the ancient style of the carpets of the East are created using a weaving technique called cut and loop. As the name implies, cut and loop carpet is a combination weave of cut carpet and loop carpet. The terms cut and loop describes the “pile,” or style of weaving used for the yarn of the carpet. “Cut” means the fabric has been sheered at the top, while “loop” refers to uncut piles. This style of carpet is produced on a loom, in a manner that is similar to how woven fabric is manufactured.
These two types of pile in combination create a unique texture. Using both cut fibers and uncut loops allows intricate designs to stand out beautifully, even without dyes or prints. The designs appear similar to bas relief artworks, and can dramatically change the aesthetics of a room. Often, many colors of yarn are used in cut and loop carpet, to enhance the pattern created from the combination of looped and cut yarn. There are, however, a few limitations to this style of carpet weaving because of the impact on the design, but there are dozens of stunning cut and loop designs to be found as well. The combination of deep colors and enticing textures can both draw the eye, and bring the beauty of a room together.

When you need plush carpet in Orange County, Pacific Kitchen Bath & Flooring are the professionals. Of course, when we talk about plush, we’re talking is the classic weave that many of us think of when we first think about carpet. This is a classic variety of cut pile carpeting, meaning the loops are sheered at the top after being woven into the base. This process creates a uniform, soft texture that both looks and feels great. The texture of long plush feels velvety soft, while short plush creates a soft appearance while lasting longer. It is not as dense as velvet carpet, for example, but plush is more durable, and less tough on bare feet than level loop, for example.
These small tufts are spaced very close together, which allows the fibers to feel soft and deep. This is why it is called plush carpet, because it squishes in a luxurious way underfoot. This style of woven carpet often doesn’t even need a pad underneath when it is installed, because the carpet itself is so soft. Plush carpet is very popular, because it can contrast nicely with hardwood or tile flooring in other rooms. Plush can come in a variety of colors, and regular maintenance is as simple as vacuuming, to both pull out dirt and fluff the carpet again.
