Let’s further explore carpeting and why it’s a great choice for home or office. 

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

Are you looking to install some new carpeting? There are many factors to keep in mind as you begin your shopping journey. There are many important questions one should consider before making a carpet selection. Is your space prone to heavy foot traffic? Do you have young children in the house, or a pet dog or cat?  Are you carpeting a space that’s prone to water exposure? 

Your carpet’s pile, or fiber, will play a vital role in your rug’s long-term function.  Synthetic fibers tend to be more budget-friendly, and are available in a wide range of materials. Materials like polyester and nylon are also quite durable, and tend to be quite soft. Natural fibers, like wool, have a rougher feel to them, and can be pricier.
Here are the basics on the different carpet piles:

  • Frieze or “shag” carpet pile is twisted and unruly, with a trendy look.  
  • Level loop carpet pile has short loops and is very eclectic, yet works well in high-traffic areas. 
  • Patterned carpet pile is intricately trimmed and has looped fibers, for more formal looks. 
  • Textured carpet pile consists of rough, longer fibers, for an enduring and casual look. 
  • Plush carpet pile is very velvet-like, with a fancy appearance.

Why Carpeting?
