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?

Since carpeting can represent a significant investment, depending on your space size, we urge you to consider all of your options carefully. Are you prone to seasonal allergies? Do you live in a climate prone to moisture and humidity? Do you love entertaining, or perhaps you need sturdy flooring to fit your growing family? Understanding your functional needs is a vital first step towards knowing exactly what you’re looking for.

Your carpet’s fiber, or pile, will determine your new rug’s ongoing function, as well as its texture and appearance. There are five major types of carpet fiber: level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.

Where Can Carpet Be Installed?

With more carpeting options than ever before, it’s possible to enjoy carpets in many types of settings. The choices are many. A soft, plush carpet can add comfort and warmth to your master bedroom, while a resilient synthetic would work better for a hallway, a family room, or your stairway. There are extremely resilient carpets for commercial settings, and stain-resistant carpets for homes with pets. One rule of thumb is that carpeting should be avoided in bathrooms and kitchens, due to the presence of moisture.
