Plush carpeting is an example of cut pile carpeting that is distinguished by a weave that is smooth and dense. The actual cut of the pile is such that the appearance of the carpet surface gives the impression of perfectly manicured section of grass. Lower and somewhat more dense than is found with Saxony carpeting, this type of floor covering is widely available, and the option of choice for many purposes.

There are several advantages to the use of plush carpeting. One of the benefits is a comfortable covering for the floors in the home. Because their construction calls for the small tufts to be closely spaced, carpets of this type have a cushioning effect even without the addition of a pad underneath the carpeting. For homes with children, or adults who sometimes like to sit on the floor, this can be a great option.

From a maintenance point of view, plush carpeting also is a viable option. Generally, the style of carpet is treated to be soil and stain resistant. The addition of protective chemicals to the surface of the fibers helps to repel stains from liquid spills, as well as prevent tracked in dirt from adhering to the fiber.

There are a couple of drawbacks to this type of floor covering. The level of the fiber ends in the pile does not lend themselves well to high traffic areas. In addition, plush carpeting tends to show the tracks left by vacuum cleaners, which will be unattractive to some people. It also has a tendency to show footprints, which can give a formal area an unkempt appearance.

For many people, the benefits of plush carpeting outweigh the disadvantages. With regular cleaning and maintenance, it will continue to look attractive for a number of years. As many people have discovered, it can provide a great deal of warmth and comfort to dens, living rooms, and bedrooms.
