Flooring technology and new trending styles offer countless options when it comes to carpet in your Boise home. However, here at Floor Coverings International Treasure Valley, we don’t see the harm in sticking to the classics. Plush carpet is most likely the style that comes to mind when you think of wall-to-wall home carpeting. Here is everything you need to know about plush carpets for your next flooring project.

Plush carpet in Boise


Plush carpet is the perfect balance between supportive and cozy. While the soft fibers are cut evenly for a velvety feel, the carpet is made with dense padding that makes it supportive underfoot. We recommend using plush carpeting in rooms centered on relaxation such as the living room or bedroom. You’ll start your morning on the right foot and you won’t be able to wait to come home and kick off your shoes. Plush carpet is available in a variety colors, textures, and styles including natural and synthetic fibers. The fiber and style you choose will change the way your carpet looks and feels, as well as how long it will last through the years.


Plush carpet has been a popular choice for decades because it typically has a long lifespan. When well maintained, plush carpet can last upwards of 10 years. Your carpets should be vacuumed regularly and spot-treated for any spills or stains that you acquire. Different fibers will require different cleaning solutions, so make sure you are purchasing the right products.

The uniform cut of plush carpeting makes it an elegant choice for your Boise home, but it comes at a cost. Because the surface lacks texture, any disturbance in the direction or height of the fibers will be obvious. The pile can become crushed underfoot and track marks from frequent movement or vacuuming show up prominently. Overall, plush carpet is a great choice, is easy to maintain, and adds value to your home.
