Let’s learn a little more about carpeting and why it might be an ideal fit for your upcoming renovation project.  

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

Carpeting truly offers up options for all, regardless of your needs. There are carpets that can keep out stains and keep allergens in, as well as carpets that can stand up to the heaviest foot traffic. It would do all consumers well to get acquainted with common carpet terminology, to ensure all purchases are geared towards the most pressing needs.

Often called carpet “pile,” your carpet’s fibers will determine density and performance rating. The look and feel of your carpeting, as well as its functionability, will be greatly determined by its pile. Polyester and nylon carpeting are some of the softest varieties – not to mention, extremely durable. While it has a rougher feel, wool fibers are great at soothing allergies and are also organically resistant to sound and heat.

Here are the basics on the different carpet types:

  • Frieze or “shag” carpeting has a casual look. Its fibers are soft, long and twisted, giving added depth and a trendy appearance.
  • Level loop carpeting is a great all-purpose carpet, with its short fibers.Since it is quite sturdy and dense, level loop is well-suited to busy rooms that gets lots of foot traffic.
  • Patterned carpeting is very formal, with its looped, alternating length fibers.
  • Textured carpeting has a rougher feel and is extremely durable, making it a good match for casual rooms – such as family rooms.
  • Plush carpeting feels a lot like velvet. Its extreme softness is appropriate for formal rooms that don’t sustain heavy usage.

Why Carpeting?

Carpeting brings its many wonderful qualities to home or to your office. Your feet will stay warm on cooler days - and cool on warmer days, effectively cutting utility costs. Carpeting is all about adding ongoing value, while always staying in style.
