Pros and Cons of Plush Pile Carpet

Carpet is one of the most versatile and attractive flooring options you can choose. Unlike wood- based flooring, you can easily find carpeting in a variety of colors, patterns, and textures. If you are looking for true luxury, consider plush pile carpeting for its irresistibly soft texture.


Plush pile carpeting comes in beautiful, vibrant colors. The densely packed yarn fibers make colors pop, so it is a great choice if you are looking for a deep blue, red or other saturated color.

This style of carpeting stays in good condition for a long time. That is especially impressive considering the boldness of available colors, as bright carpets often fade quickly. Not so with a plush pile – you can expect to enjoy the look of this carpet for years whether you choose a bold statement color or a classic neutral.

Plush pile carpets are luxuriously soft due to their texture. The many yarn fibers create a pliant surface that feels especially nice on bare feet. You may even find plush carpets advertised as velvet pile carpets because they feel just like velvet.


As a high-end product, plush pile carpeting is not the cheapest option on the market. For a rental property or standard commercial, we would suggest a more basic option, like polyester or polypropylene. Keep in mind that low-end carpets tend to have low lifespans, so you may save more in the long run with plush pile carpeting, especially if you invest in regular maintenance.

Plush carpet is harder to clean than regular carpet and is not the best choice for children’s rooms or play spaces. The tightly packed fibers that give plush carpeting its soft feel also make it hard for vacuums and standard carpet cleaning products to reach the bottom of the fibers. That is why we recommend regular professional cleaning of your plush carpet.

How often do you need to clean plush pile carpet? It depends on the level of foot traffic it receives.
