Expert Advice - Choosing a Carpet Style

Jim Aaron, our VP of Merchandising for Carpet One Floor & Home, shares some information on the different carpet styles that are available.

Types of Carpet

Carpet continues to adapt to changes in style as well as different consumer wants and needs. It can be made to handle active family lifestyles and stand up to challenges such as children and pets. Characteristics such as pile styles, fibers, and the backing all impact how your flooring will function in your home.

We offer carpets that are stain, fade, and wear resistant. Durable carpets allow you to live your life worry free on your own flooring. The type of fiber a carpet is made with can have a major role in how stain resistant and durable a carpet is. We have carpets with synthetic fibers like nylon and polyester which are inherently durable and soft. We also offer natural carpet fibers such as wool. Wool features several amazing characteristics like being hypoallergenic and easy to clean.

The most important decision is choose the right type of carpet. There are five main types: level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.

Frieze or “shag” carpets are quite trendy, with a soft, deep and twisted pile. Shag carpet is especially popular in casual spaces.

Level loop carpeting is very durable and makes for a wonderful all-purpose rug. Level loop can readily accommodate heavy foot traffic.

Patterned carpeting is formal in appearance. Its pile is looped and trimmed to form intricate patterns.

Textured carpeting works well for dens, family rooms, and other casual spots. It has a rough texture and is quite durable.

Plush carpeting is highly formal, and is best for rooms that don’t receive a lot of foot traffic. Its pile feels a lot like velvet fabric.

Why Carpeting?

Carpeting is cherished for its ability to transform all types of interior spaces into a warm, cozy retreat. With endless options for bedrooms, dens, and living rooms, carpet represents endless possibilities. There are even stain, wear, and fade-resistant carpets that work well on stairs, in hallways, and even in children’s rooms and in finished basements.

Homeowners choose carpet over other flooring because it can turn a room into a cozy and warm retreat. Carpets are a great choice to install in bedrooms, dens, or you can even install them in living rooms as well.
