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?

Carpet is a popular flooring option because of its unmatched and versatile style. There are, for example, so many different options from which to choose including waterproof carpets, stain resistant carpets, and pet friendly carpets. Carpet is made of fibers, which are twisted into piles. The most popular fibers we carry include wool and nylon. These fibers are durable and feature incredible resistance to staining and messes. The pile you choose can affect how the carpet will look and even perform in your home. You can choose from dense or loose piles, depending on your needs and the style you are looking for.

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 waterproof carpet option. Waterproof carpets can be installed anywhere in your home, and are perfect for basements.
