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.

What Are the Different Types of Carpet?

The carpet that will complement your life can seem like a far stretch. Who thinks of carpet as being durable or long-lasting? Not many people. However, technology has brought carpet a long way, and today we have pet-proof and stain-resistant options available. Made with high activity homes in mind, these carpets may surprise you with how they perform. Even carpets that are not pet proof today have improved tremendously from the well-known carpet of the ‘60s. Combine high efficiency with patterns, colors, and designs that people of all ages enjoy and you’ll quickly see that finding your ideal carpet is achievable.

How do you balance what you want with what you need? Choosing the right type of carpet by understanding the differences is an essential part. There are five main types, level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.

Where Can Carpet Be Installed?

Carpet never fails to bring comfort under feet and a soft place to land. If you’re looking to come home and feel the softness of carpet or experience a family movie night on the rug, we suggest installing carpet in the living room or den. It can also be installed in bedrooms and offices. Carpet is not resistant to moisture, so bathrooms and kitchens are not ideal for carpets. Stain, wear, and fade resistant carpets can be installed in areas with high traffic including staircases and hallways.
