Best Types of Carpet


Carpet is popular in residential and commercial spaces, but depending on your room, there are certain factors to take into consideration.


In residential areas, for example, style and comfort tend to be more important, but if you have children and pets, durability will be paramount.


Carpet is made up of fibers, which are twisted into piles. Fibers play a role in the style, durability, and overall texture of the carpet.  These can be natural or synthetic.



  • Nylon is a synthetic pile that’s very sturdy, but sometimes needs to be treated to prolong stain resistance.  
  • Polyester is a synthetic pile often seen as a cheaper nylon. These days though, you’ll find quality polyester carpets that are equally durable.
  • Olefin fibers hold vivid colors that won’t fade, making it a great place for rooms with heavy sun exposure.
  • Triexta is another tough synthetic pile that boasts built-in stain-resistant properties.
  • Wool is a popular and long-lasting natural pile that is eco-friendly and insulating.


Take a closer look at the different types of carpet that you’ll find in our showroom and their many unique performance features.



Know Your Carpet’s Construction


You’ll find high, medium, and low carpet piles in our local showroom. What does that mean?


Well, our shag and frieze carpet have deep piles that are cozy and feel very soft underfoot. We have cut piles, loop piles, and cut loop constructions available.



  • Cut piles are sheered at your rug’s surface.
  • Loop piles are woven to a backing with their looped fibers left intact.
  • Cut loop carpets combine features from both types to add beautiful patterns and textures.


Different pile constructions bring various perks. For example: rugs with a lower pile tend to be the easiest to clean and dry very fast, making them a favorite for family rooms and commercial settings.


Where Can Carpet Be Installed?

Carpet is known for its cozy, comfortable qualities, which makes it a great option for a wide range of places around your home or business.


We offer stain-resistant carpet that can be installed in heavily used areas like children’s playrooms, hallways, and staircases. We even offer waterproof carpet, which is ideal for families with pets and young children.



Carpet for Commercial Spaces


Carpet is very popular in the working world, and for great reasons!


If you are looking to add carpet to a commercial setting, make sure you consider foot traffic and the potential for moisture, spills, and other impacts. Commercial carpets tend to be more rugged and water-repellent than residential carpets.


Carpet tiles are another popular option for commercial settings because each tile can be cheaply and easily replaced if it becomes damaged or worn out. Our expert team will install any new carpet that we sell.
