Carpet Flooring

Nylon vs. Polyester- What's the difference?

So you’re in the market for carpeting. But the question is: What kind of carpet flooring? You've heard that nylon is the most reliable, while polyester is just as good. So what's the difference? Bogart’s Carpet is here for you. We can tell you that there are features in both these fibers that would be good in separate rooms in your house. Let’s look at the differences.


A stain-resistant chemical is applied to the nylon in the factory. Nylon is a strong and durable fiber. So much so that it retains its original look years after installation. It handles heavy furniture well, springing back after the furniture has been removed. It is also resistant to fading, so it can be placed in rooms where there is sunlight. It also works well in hallways, family rooms, and dining rooms. It is ideal for heavy traffic rooms in active households.


Polyester comes in beautiful colors that a vibrant and bright. Nylon, in contrast, has a kind of dull coloring to it. Polyester is inherently stain-resistant but not as durable as nylon. It is better utilized in low-traffic areas like bedrooms. With its variety of bright colors, a polyester carpet can go in a child’s or teenager’s room to add individuality and personalized space. The same can apply to the master bedroom, where a lively carpet can add sophistication to the room. Polyester is also made from recycled plastic beverage bottles. This makes it more cost-effective and less than nylon because of the low cost of the raw materials and production.
