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?

With so many wonderful qualities for both the home and the office, carpeting truly has lots to offer. Representing possibilities and value, carpeting keeps you warm, in style, and always on trend.  Since it also has amazing insulating qualities, a good carpet can also help you save on utility costs as the years go by.


Types of Carpet

Carpeting is made to meet a wide variety of needs, ranging from allergy protection to stain resistance. There are carpets that made especially for heavily-tread areas, and carpets made entirely for luxurious comfort. The first step to finding the perfect carpet, however, is to familiarize with common carpet terminology: a critical step in meeting all your flooring needs.

A carpet’s fibers are also referred to as “pile.” Pile affects each carpet’s performance rating, including its density. The material comprising your carpet pile also determines the look and feel of your rug. For instance, nylon and polyester pile will have a softer feel, and is very durable. Wool fiber is rougher to the touch, but is a terrific insulator.

Here’s a little guide to the different carpet types:

Frieze or “shag” carpets are casual and soft in appearance. With long, twisty fibers, frieze has a deep pile that’s extremely trendy.

Level loop carpets are popular “all-purpose” picks, with their short and dense fibers. Level loop is a sturdier rug, which works great in high-trafficked areas.

Patterned carpets have a formal appearance, thanks to their looped, alternating length fibers.

Textured carpers are rough to the touch, and work well in casual spaces. They are very durable, so are often installed in family rooms. .

Plush carpets feel indulgent to the touch, with a velvet-like pile. These rugs are very soft, but since they easily show footprints, they are best reserved for spaces that don’t sustain heavy usage.
