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

We are here to make choosing a carpet easy for you, and to help you navigate our carpet collection. In most residential settings, berber carpet is popular because style and performance are all in one product. If you need extra durability, be sure to check out frieze carpet, but if you want premium softness and luxury, shag carpet is a great option.

We also have carpet options that feature incredible stain resistance. A stain resistant carpet can stand up to most everyday messes, and are made to handle everyday life in your home. We also offer the one-of-a-kind Tigressá® H2O™ carpets that are completely waterproof. A waterproof carpet is great for families who have multiple pets or children, and are ideal for finished basements.

There are five main types: level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.

Where can Carpet be Installed?

If you have an active family, then consider investing in stain, fade, and wear resistant carpets. Why buy a carpet that you constantly need to look after when we have carpets that are perfect for your 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. Make rooms around your home feel more warm and inviting like children’s playrooms, offices and even your bedroom.

Places to avoid installing carpet include rooms with a lot of moisture such as bathrooms and kitchens. Most carpets absorb moisture which creates an ideal environment for harmful allergens. Even with waterproof carpet options, always avoid these areas if at all possible.
