When you think of traditional wall-to-wall carpeting, you probably imagine some form of saxony carpeting. Saxony is often called “standard” carpet because of its simple, low-profile design: a short, cut pile carpet that comes in a wide range of colors, patterns, and fibers.

Saxony carpet in Ocotillo


Saxony carpet appeals to many Ocotillo homeowners because it is a great middle-of-the-road option: it is softer than Berber, but firmer and less textured than frieze. Here are some more reasons why our experts at Floor Coverings International Chandler-Gilbert love saxony carpeting:

Advantages of Saxony Carpet

  • Saxony has a soft, plush, cozy feel, so it is perfect for spaces where you want to be able walk in bare feet or lounge on the floor comfortably.
  • Saxony carpeting has a tight, dense pile, so it can help to absorb sound. It can also help in insulating your home so that you save on energy costs.
  • Since saxony is such a simple, low-profile style, you can choose whatever color, pattern, or material suits your personal style and needs.
  • Saxony carpeting ranges in price, depending on the style and fiber you choose. Are you looking for something durable and luxurious? Try a high quality wool or nylon option. Do you need something that’s budget-friendly? Look for affordable olefin or polyester carpeting.

Factors to Consider

  • Saxony is not a trackless carpet, so it will show indentations from footprints, vacuum tracks, or furniture legs. If you think that your carpet will experience a lot of use and traffic, consider a style that is made with wool or nylon fibers for added durability and resilience.
  • Since saxony carpeting has a low, even pile, it does not hide dirt as well as textured carpets like Berber and frieze. Regular vacuuming can help keep your carpet looking good, but if you start to notice dirt or stains, consider hiring a professional to give it a deep clean.
