Carpeting provides a warm and soft surface for every room. It comes in many textures, colors, and fibers, ranging from coarse to soft. When you want the ultimate in luxury, velvet carpet is often considered the most luxurious.
Velvet carpet is woven on a velvet loom. Traditionally, this was a cut-pile carpet with loosely twisted fibers. However, you can also find it in a looped carpet. Velvet carpet can sometimes be found as a variant of a plush carpet but is most often in its own category. It is not available in all fibers and is most commonly found in wool and some triexta types. Uncommonly, you may also find it in acrylic carpeting.
The national average range for velvet carpet is $1,500 to $3,200, with most people paying around $1,800 for 200 sq.ft. of installed Silk Reserve triexta velvet carpet. This project’s low cost is $1,250 for 200 sq.ft. of acrylic velvet carpet installed. The high cost is $5,600 for 200 sq.ft. of installed hand-woven wool velvet carpet.

Velvet carpet is incredibly thick and dense. This provides a luxurious feel and softness. It differs from other carpets because most fibers are on the front rather than a mix in the front and back. This makes velvet carpets much thicker and softer than ordinary carpets.
They show footprints and vacuum marks, but the thickness makes this carpet incredibly long-lasting. Velvet carpets often outlast other carpets - even in commercial settings - meaning that while they are more costly, you often get a better value.
