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

Carpet function is largely determined by fiber. Carpet fiber, also referred to as pile, can be made of both natural and synthetic materials.  There are fibers made to combat many common scenarios, but with so many options it’s very important to understand your needs, and know what you’re looking for. Ask all of the critical questions and we’ll help you pick carpet that offers superior stain resistance, heavy wear capabilities, or even the ability to combat constant pet stains. Of course, we can recommend the softest, most comfortable carpets for all those homebodies, as well.

There are five types of carpet pile: level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.

Where to Install Carpeting

There are very few places where carpeting isn’t welcome, but it’s wise to choose carefully.  A stain-resistant carpet variety will fare well in your entryway, hallway, stairs, or in a child’s room. Your living room- the site of many family gatherings- might require a heavy duty carpet that can manage heavy traffic, as well as the likeliness of puppy accidents. For a master bedroom, where comfort is key,  a plush carpet can be a welcome setting for your tired feet.

Carpeting should generally be avoided in bathrooms or laundry rooms, since they might not hold up to the excessive humidity.
