Finding the carpet that’s an ideal match for your space and functional needs is something you won’t regret. Of course, an important part of finding the perfect carpeting is gaining a good understanding of the different carpet types, their functions, and their capabilities. Read on for more.

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.

Types of Carpet

Your new carpeting purchase will represent a sizeable investment, so it’s important to consider your needs carefully. Factors such as wear, durability, and stain-resistance should all be on your check list. Attaining the perfect carpeting for your allotted space means finding the perfect combination of style and performance, allowing your rug to compliment your space for as long as possible. 

A key component of your carpeting’s function is its pile, or fiber. There are five types of carpet pile: level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.

Where to Install Carpeting

Carpeting is considered perfect flooring in terms of comfort and warmth, making it a sensible option for bedrooms, family rooms, living rooms, and dens. There are stain-resistant and hard-wearing carpets for commercial spaces, hallways, and stairs. These varieties are also a great choice for children’s playrooms, or places where pets frequently frolic.
