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

There are a variety of carpet options available, but fortunately we can help you make the perfect choice for your setting. In most residential settings, berber carpet is popular because it does well to combine style and performance. If you need extra durability, be sure to check out frieze carpet, but if you want premium softness and luxury, shag carpet is a great option.

In commercial settings, performance is more important, so commercial carpet tends to be harder and stronger underfoot than residential carpet. Commercial carpet can handle foot traffic and other impacts, and it also resists most stains. Carpet tiles are popular in commercial settings because they are easy to clean and repair.

If you need carpet for a small area (such as a closet or hallway) be sure to ask us about carpet remnants. Carpet remnants are small pieces of quality carpets that can be purchased and installed in the same day.

There are five main types: level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.

Where can Carpet be Installed?

Carpet has become a durable flooring solution for many homes because of its stain and wear resistant qualities. Carpet is ideal for spaces like bedrooms, living rooms, and children’s play rooms because it is soft, stylish and easy to care for. With durable carpet options that are resistant to wear and fading, you can install them in hallways and on staircases, and even in basements.

Places to avoid installing carpet include rooms with a lot of moisture such as bathrooms and kitchens. Most carpets absorb moisture which creates an ideal environment for harmful allergens. Even with waterproof carpet options, always avoid these areas if at all possible.
