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 many kinds of carpet; how each one functions is directly related to the type of carpet. Consider your needs when it comes to your home. Factors like how often the carpet will be walked on, what types of accidents could happen, and how you want it to feel can all change the end decision on your carpet purchase. Don’t forget, while functionality is important, it’s also crucial that you enjoy what your floor looks like.

Creating harmony in your home is essential to living in a place you love — balance function with style by choosing the right type of carpet. There are five main types, level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.

Where Can Carpet Be Installed?

As many have heard, carpet does best in rooms where you want the relaxation factor to increase while staying low traffic. Living rooms and bedrooms are popular rooms where carpet does well. Both rooms make people feel calm and easygoing with the addition of carpet. Shocking to some, we also carry carpets that can be installed in busier areas of your home. Walkways and stairs were once impractical for carpets. However, with new technology comes new carpet that can resist heavy traffic. Carpet should not be installed where there are high levels of moisture, like bathrooms and kitchens.
