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

The decision to install new carpeting is truly just the beginning of your journey. Carpet customers will have many factors to ponder, since different types of carpeting boasts different attributes. Fiber density- commonly referred to as carpet pile- is one important thing to consider.

Made using various materials, your carpet’s fibers play a vital role in durability, texture, and appearance. Synthetics like polyester and nylon are extra durable, with superior softness, for example, while wool is naturally sourced and resistant to mildew and mold.

Here are the basics on the most common carpet types:

  • Frieze carpeting is extra soft and fits in best in casual settings. Its fibers are long and twisted, creating dimension as well as cushioned comfort.
  • Level loop carpeting is dense with a low profile, fitting best into high-traffic settings. Its fibers are short and have looped ends.
  • Patterned carpeting is made of cut yarns and fits great in a formal setting. Its fibers are cut at varying heights for some very unique patterns.
  • Textured carpeting is made using long fibers and works great for everyday use. It has a casual look and a rougher texture.
  • Plush carpeting is made using thicker fibers and boasts a very formal appearance that is similar to velvet.It has extremely soft fibers that are intended to provide ample cushion.
