Forget Footprints – Frieze Carpet Can Help Hide Your Tracks
0 comments

You can't do much about the fact that some parts of your home are used more often than others. Still, you don't have to settle for your high-traffic areas looking like a stampede of wild animals ran through. Frieze carpet can help hide those pesky footprints without you having to lift a finger or fluff out trampled areas manually.

Historically, the earliest frieze textiles were made from napped wool that had a curly, twisted appearance. Modern frieze carpet still has the same look and feel, but the wool has been upgraded to high-durability materials that are more ideal for foot traffic. Modern frieze carpet can now be made to take on a number of colors, styles, and other aesthetic characteristics that serve to accent your personal style.

Because frieze carpet incorporates hundreds of tiny textural elements to create a uniform overall pattern, it's great at hiding ugly footprints. Unlike some other kinds of carpet, frieze's fibers have an informal appearance that sets a relaxed tone. Even better, they don't appear trampled down if you've been standing around in one spot for a while or after you move a heavy piece of furniture.

Frieze’s unique style also invites people to kick their shoes off, sink their toes in and really get comfortable. Frieze comes in a number of textures that make them great for home offices and nurseries where it can be nice to have a bit of relief from harder floors.

Of course, it's not just about looks. You'll still have to break out the vacuum, but the fact that you won't have to do a full-home deep cleaning ever day will make your chores far less unpleasant. The same cool characteristics that make frieze carpet great at resisting footprints also means that nobody will be able to tell that you only vacuumed the parts of your home that needed the most attention. They'll just think that you're super tidy, and you'll have your frieze carpet to thank.
