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

For those considering a new carpet installation, many tough choices are ahead. There are many questions to ask yourself as you embark on the selection process, since different types of carpeting have some different characteristics and functions. One important characteristic is your carpet’s pile, or the density of fibers woven into your carpeting.

Carpet fibers themselves are composed of various materials. The fiber in your carpeting will determine its texture, its appearance, and its overall durability. Nylon, polyester, and other synthetic materials, for example, are quite soft and extremely durable, while if you’re looking for carpeting that’s naturally-sourced and has a longer life span, wool might be your answer.

Here are some traits of the most common carpet types:

  • Frieze carpeting has a casual appearance and is also known as shag. It has soft, long, and twisty fibers, resulting in a very comfortable underfoot.
  • Level loop carpeting works great in all settings, as it holds up well under heavy traffic. Its short, loopy-ended fibers make for a low, denser profile.
  • Patterned carpeting has some very unique patterns, indeed, which are a great addition to more formal settings. Patterns are achieved by weaving and looking the yarns, then trimming those loops in varying heights.
  • Textured carpeting is a great choice for casual, home settings. It is extremely durable with its long, rough fibers that conceal soiling, wear, and tear.
  • Plush carpeting lends a formal, luxurious look. Its thick, soft fibers resemble velvet fabric.
