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?

Your home is unique, so your flooring should be too! Carpet is made of fibers which then get twisted into piles. The different fibers include synthetic options like nylon, polyester, triexta, and olefin. We also offer natural fibers like wool, which is allergy friendly and easy to care for. The pile of the carpet can impact how it will look and perform in your home. You can choose from tightly twisted piles, dense piles, or loose piles.

Besides style, you’ll want a carpet that can handle your lifestyle. We offer carpets that are stain resistant and made with pets and children in mind. We even carry waterproof carpeting, which can be installed anywhere in your home, even your basement!

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?

Since carpet adds comfort and warmth, common spaces you can install it in include bedrooms, living rooms, and home offices. If you have pets or young children in your household, we may recommend choosing a waterproof carpet option. Waterproof carpets can be installed anywhere in your home, and are perfect for basements. Carpet is also well suited for active areas in your home such as children’s playrooms, hallways, and staircases.
