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.

Benefits of Carpet

Installing carpet in your home comes along with several different benefits. Our stain resistant carpets are perfect for active households with pets and children, and are incredibly easy to clean. We even have carpets that feature our exclusive H2O™ technology that makes them entirely waterproof. Our carpets also feature allergy friendly qualities. The fibers of the carpet can trap dust and dirt on the surface so it does not reach the breathing-zone and can be easily vacuumed up.

Types of Carpet

Carpet is made up of fibers which are then twisted into piles. Fibers can be made of different materials that are either synthetic or natural. Popular synthetic fibers include nylon and polyester. Wool is one of several natural fibers that are used to make carpets and rugs. Piles are the fibers twisted up. There are cut piles, loop piles, and even cut and loop piles.

The most important thing you need to do is choose the right type of carpet that balances style and performance. There are five main types: level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.
