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 Popular Carpet Types?

There are so many different options from which to choose including stain resistant carpets, waterproof carpets, and pet proof carpets. Carpets are made from fibers, and those fibers are made from different materials. There are synthetic fibers like nylon, polyester, and triexta, and then there are natural carpet fibers like wool. These carpet fibers are then twisted into piles, which helps determine the durability and texture of the carpet. Different types of carpet will function differently in your home, so our carpet experts make sure to ask you important questions to match you to the perfect carpet.

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

Where can Carpet be Installed?

Carpets are a great choice to install in bedrooms, dens, or you can even install them in living rooms as well. Our stain, wear and fade resistant carpets can be installed in places around your home that experience a lot of traffic like stairs, hallways, and even children’s playrooms and basements. If you have pets or young children in your household, we may recommend choosing a stain resistant or waterproof carpet option. Our waterproof carpet options can also be installed in basements.
