Carpet Guide

Offering warmth and comfort, carpeting is always in style. A favorite for both commercial and residential environments, carpeting has the uncanny ability to instantly transform your interiors. Carpeting is offered up in thousands of color, texture, and style combinations, and there are varieties to serve many different functions, such as resisting stains and handling extreme foot traffic.

Our experienced flooring experts can help you navigate the often-overwhelming world of carpeting, and narrow down your search to determine the right product for you and your family. 

But before the shopping begins, let’s take a closer look at the different carpeting styles and types: you’ll be glad you did. 

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

To choose carpeting is truly just the beginning: there are many, many kinds of carpet, with new innovations appearing on the regular. Some carpets will help you manage your allergies, for example, while others will hold their beauty while repelling stains and odors from your new puppy. 

Carpet fibers, or pile, are a major deciphering factor in how your carpet will function. Here are the basics on the different pile families; 
Frieze or “shag” fiber has a retro look that’s recently come back into fashion. Shag carpets are very, very soft due to their twisted, long fibers. Such rugs are best used in casual settings.

Level loop fiber has a neutral appearance that can fit in anywhere. With short, looped pile, level loop is durable enough to be used in commercial environments.

Patterned fiber has an elegant and fanciful appearance that works best in areas where heavy traffic isn’t a problem. Its pile is carefully woven into intricate patterns. 

Textured fiber has a casual look that can withstand all types of accidents. This rough-feeling carpet is one of the more durable options 

Plush fiber has a formal appearance that works best in polished, quiet settings. With an opulent feel similar to velvet fabric, this carpet fares best in low-impact areas.
