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.

Where Can You Install Carpet?

It does not matter if you live an active lifestyle, or have a home that doesn’t see much activity, because there is a carpet for every type of home. We can help you find a carpet that suits your home and lifestyle. Carpets are more durable than you think and can handle places around your home with heavy traffic like hallways, stairs, and even living rooms. Transform rooms you like to relax in into cozy and inviting spaces as your own personal retreat. You can install carpet in your bedroom, and even in your child’s playroom.

Places you should avoid installing carpet in include bathrooms and kitchens.


Types of Carpet

Choosing a carpet color is just one part of the process when it comes to buying a carpet for your home or business. Pile styles have unique characteristics, which will have an impact on how your carpet performs. What are these different characteristics? Cut pile is made of fibers that are cut at the ends making the carpet denser. Loop pile is the opposite, and no fibers are left at the surface and are in a series of loops, so the carpet looks even. Opposite from that, multi-level loop staggers the height of the loop fibers to create an uneven surface. Cut and loop piles also provide an uneven look and adds texture to the carpet.

Carpet is made from fibers, which can affect the look and feel of your flooring. It also determines the stain and matting resistance as well as long term durability. Nylon fibers are the most durable, but polyester has a comfortable feel. Then there are natural fibers like sisal and wool. Wool fibers are sought after by homeowners not just because they are natural but because they also feature many different benefits like being hypoallergenic.
