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.

Choosing Carpet

Carpet is popular in residential and commercial settings, but depending on your desired setting, there are certain factors you must take into consideration. In residential settings, for example, style and comfort tend to be more important, but if you have children and pets, durability will be paramount. We recommend berber carpet in residential settings because it’s extremely versatile in terms of design and performance. For extra durability, frieze carpet is more practical, but if you value style and softness above all take a look at our collection of shag carpets.

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.

Types of Carpet Fibers

Carpet is made up of fibers which are twisted into piles. Fibers play a role in the style, durability, and overall look of the carpet. Fibers can be natural or synthetic. Our collection of synthetic carpet fibers includes nylon, polyester, olefin, and triexta. Types of natural fibers include wool, and rugs can be made from sisal or jute fibers. Most synthetic fibers are treated to be stain resistant, and natural fibers like wool are natural allergy friendly.

Where can Carpet be Installed?

Carpet is known for its comfort qualities, which makes it a great option for places around your home including bedrooms, living rooms, and dens. We offer stain resistant carpeting that can be installed in heavily used areas around your home such as children’s playrooms, hallways, and on staircases. We even offer waterproof carpeting that is perfect for basements. We also help you with carpet installation.

If you are looking to add carpet to a commercial setting, make sure you consider foot traffic and the potential for spills and various impacts. Commercial carpet tends to be more rugged and harder than residential carpet, as it is built to handle whatever life has to offer. Carpet tiles are popular in commercial settings because, although they have a real carpet construction, they are tough and strong.
