Most Popular Carpet Varieties
Nylon fiber is one of the most popular synthetic carpet choices for residential floors due to its resiliency against foot traffic and daily wear and tear. It’s one reason this soft carpet appears often in family rooms. The stain-resistant nylon carpet fiber can stand up to most everyday spills, furniture marks, and pet damage. Compared to polyester, nylon carpet fiber can be more water-absorbent requiring more dry time after a spill.
Polyester carpeting is a synthetic fibers option that provides better stain resistance and durability than wool carpet or other natural fiber alternatives. Although it is a more eco-friendly option than nylon carpet, it might not be the best carpet selection for high-traffic areas in your home. Polyester fibers can eventually break down due to heavy traffic or retain imprints when covered by furniture or a heavy area rug for a period of time.

Both nylon and polyester fiber types can have similar textures and appearances. However, the quality of the materials can vary, which will account for the differences in price, durability, and potentially other characteristics.
In terms of color, you can customize either type of fiber with a solution dyeing process to create vivid hues and patterns that fit your design style.
Although synthetic carpet fibers might not have the unique feel of natural fibers, manufacturers can still produce them to feel exceptionally soft.
