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.

Different Types of Carpet

Carpet fibers play a role in how a carpet functions. Synthetic fibers, like nylon and polyester, can be made to be super durable and ultra-plush. Wool carpets have their own special benefits like being flame retardant and sound absorbing. Pile styles impact that way carpets look. There are cut piles, loop piles, and cut and loop piles. Color also plays a role depending on the amount of traffic in your home.

There are also stain resistant carpet options. A common enemy of homeowners is carpet stains, and having a carpet that is stain resistant not only provides you peace of mind, but it also makes cleanups easier. 

There are five main types: level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.

Level loop carpet has a dense, low profile, which makes it great for heavily-trafficked areas.

Patterned carpet is made of loops and cut fibers of varying heights, resulting in unique patterns.

Textured carpet has longer fibers resulting in a casual look that's great for home settings.

Plush, or velvet, carpet has a more formal appearance because of its thick construction.
