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.

What Are the Different Types of Carpet?

Do you think of carpet as soft? Do you imagine your home covered in a stylish, patterned carpet? Maybe you see yourself with carpet in a few rooms but not others. Whatever you think of when you think of carpet, it is essential to know that carpet differs based on the type. The type of carpet you purchase should be based on your lifestyle factors like activity level and personal style. For example, a homeowner who has five dogs will need carpet that functions differently than a homeowner who lives alone with no pets. Carpet is still a popular choice in the flooring industry and provides softness underfoot unlike any other floor.

Balance your factors with your style to get the most out of your carpet investment. The types of carpet on the market today are level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.

Where Can Carpet Be Installed?

Carpet that is not stain resistant or pet-proof is best installed in living rooms and bedrooms, or rooms that are not high traffic. Stain resistant and pet-proof carpets can be installed in living rooms, bedrooms, playrooms, and can even be put in staircases and hallways due to their ability to resist wear and tear. You should not install carpet in kitchens or bathrooms because these rooms have high moisture levels.
