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

Are you considering a carpet installation for your upcoming renovation? Carpet is always a great choice, but it’s also extremely important to understand the meaning of carpet pile, or the density of a carpet’s fibers, as well as the different fibers themselves.

Fibers are made in a wide variety of materials, with each one offering its own unique attributes. Fibers determine carpeting’s appearance, texture, and durability.  While synthetic fibers like polyester and nylon are soft, yet strong, some natural fibers, such as wool, tend to last even longer since they are inherently resistant to mold or mildew.

Here are the basics on common carpet types:

  • Frieze carpets are very casual and soft. Their long, twisted fibers create dimension underfoot.
  • Level loop carpets are dense short-looped. Their low profiles works well in heavily trafficked areas.
  • Patterned carpets are looped and cut at various heights for a formal appearance.Their patterns tend to be most unique.
  • Textured carpets are more casual appearing, with long fibers. Their rougher texture works in many different settings.
  • Plush carpets feel just like velvet fabric and have a formal look about them. Their soft, thick fibers provide ample cushion.
