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 Popular Carpet Types?

Carpet continues to be one of the most popular flooring choices in homes largely because of its versatility. There are, for example, so many different options from which to choose, including berber carpet, shag carpet, and frieze carpet. Berber carpet is a popular choice in homes because it’s available in nylon and wool. We love wool carpets because they are naturally soft and wear resistant. For extra softness, take a look at shag carpet, but if durability is a concern, frieze carpet is a better option.

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

Where can Carpet be Installed?

Carpets are a great choice to install in bedrooms, dens, or you can even install them in living rooms as well. Our stain, wear and fade resistant carpets can be installed in places around your home that experience a lot of traffic like stairs, hallways, and even children’s playrooms and basements.

What about commercial settings? Commercial carpet, since it’s made to handle foot traffic and other impacts, is harder underfoot than residential carpet. But, it does remain softer than many other flooring options. Carpet tiles are popular in commercial settings because, although they look and feel like regular carpet, they are extremely durable and easy to maintain.
