Seams are sometimes visible with looped or low-profile patterned carpets
The degree of visibility depends on texture, color, lighting, and furniture
Backing and Loops
Backing may show when carpet bends over stairs depending on texture, color and density
Looped carpet can snag at a seam or transition

Consider window treatment and furniture placement to minimize this effect!
