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 remains one of the top choices in flooring for homeowners, and has been adapting to the ever changing wants and needs of homeowners. 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. 

Carpets come in stain resistant, wear resistant, and even fade resistant options. Durable carpets allow you to live your life worry free in your own home on your own floors. The type of fiber used to make a carpet can have a major role in how stain resistant and durable a carpet is. We have carpets with synthetic fibers like nylon, polyester, triexta, and olefin 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 choosing the right type of carpet. There are five main types: level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.
