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.

Why Carpet?

There’s a lot to love about carpeting. It is relatively fast to install, and once in place, your space will instantly be transformed. Your new carpet also serves as a stylish insulator: keeping you warm in the wintertime and cool and comfortable in the summertime. This will, in turn, result in lower utility costs, all while adding texture and style to your favorite indoor spaces.



Types of Carpet

There are carpet options that can truly fit any space or situation you might imagine. However, you really need to know exactly what you’re looking for before undertaking the shopping process. Being familiar with common carpeting “lingo” will help you in determining your carpet’s durability, its ability to keep stains and water out, and its care requirements.

Carpet fibers, which are usually referred to as pile, will determine density, and can indicate potential future performance.  Each type of fiber has a distinct look and feel. Synthetic fibers, for instance, are more durable, so you might opt for nylon or polyester if your household is a hectic one.  For carpeting that’s resistant to mold and mildew – a perfect option for allergy sufferers- choose a natural fiber such as wool. Wool also works great in humid settings.

Here are the basics on the different carpet types:

Frieze carpeting, or shag, is trendy and casual. It has twisted fibers that feel soft, creating depth and dimension under your feet.

Level loop carpeting is a great all-purpose product, with its casual feel. It’s a dense rug, with short fibers, making it work well in high traffic.

Patterned carpeting is more formal. It has fibers of various heights, with looped ends, making a strong style statement.

Textured carpeting is the most casual type of carpeting around, with a rough and eclectic texture. It works well in family rooms and playrooms.

Plush carpeting is one of the softest, most luxurious carpets around. It has a striking, yet formal appearance.
