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.

What Are the Different Types of Carpet?

Your new carpeting can be a serious investment, so we highly encourage you to take a long, thoughtful assessment of your space well before making your purchase. Do you or your family members suffer from allergies? Are you in the habit of hosting large gatherings? Or, perhaps you need sturdy flooring for your office space? Making a list of all your functional needs, as well as your style requirements, is an excellent initial step in your shopping journey.

The fiber in your new carpeting holds the cards in determining overall texture, function, and appearance. There are five major types of carpet fiber: level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.

Where Can Carpet Be Installed?

Thanks to modern innovation, there are more carpet varieties than ever before and that means there’s carpeting fit for many different settings. For your bedroom or den, there are soft and supple carpet varieties that add warmth. For a hectic commercial area, or your home’s hallway, a resilient and durable carpet is recommended. Stain-resistance, on the other hand, is a key feature for carpets intended for environments with toddlers or pets. One thing to keep in mind is that carpeting shouldn’t be installed in kitchens or bathrooms, due to the ongoing moisture factor.
