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.

Different Types of Carpet

There are a variety of carpets for every lifestyle. Whether you live in a home with pets or have a lightly active home, you will want to consider what carpet will work best for you. Choosing something that is functional as well as something that fits with your overall design is a crucial part of creating a space you love to be in. Think about the rooms you are planning to install carpet in, do they get much foot traffic? What type of design are you looking for, something eclectic or traditional? Answering these questions will help you get the most out of your carpet.

Find the right balance by choosing the right type of carpet. There are five main types of fibers used in making carpet. They are level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.

Where Can Carpet Be Installed?

Depending on the type of carpet fiber you choose, carpet can be installed in many spaces of your home. However, most carpet is best for areas like living rooms and bedrooms, because of its softness underfoot. Stain resistant carpet can be installed in hallways and high traffic areas. Pet-proof and waterproof carpets are great for high traffic homes and accidents. Kitchens and bathrooms are not areas where carpet should be installed because of the moisture it is exposed to in these spaces.
