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.

Benefits of Carpet

Carpet features a number of different benefits. Our stain resistant carpets make life easier in your home, and protect themselves from accidental spills and messes caused by pets or children. Carpet is considered allergy friendly and is a great choice for those who suffer from them. The fibers of the carpet can trap dust and dirt on the surface so it does not reach the breathing-zone and can be easily vacuumed up. We also carry our own exclusive carpets that feature H2O™ technology that makes them entirely waterproof.


Types of Carpet

Carpet is made up of fibers which are then twisted into piles. Fibers come from different materials and can be with natural or synthetic. Synthetic carpet fibers include nylon, polyester, triexta, and olefin. Wool is one of the natural fibers used in carpets. Wool carpets have their own special benefits like being sound absorbing and having hypoallergenic qualities. Piles are the fibers twisted up. There are cut piles, loop piles, and even cut and loop piles.

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

Where Can Carpet Be Installed?

Carpet is made to handle a lot of activity and can be installed in children’s playrooms. We offer carpets that are resistant to staining, wear, and fade. Those types of carpets can be installed in heavily trafficked areas like hallways and staircases.  Our waterproof carpet options can even be installed in basements.  The most common spaces carpet is installed in include bedrooms and living rooms. The most important thing to do to keep your carpets looking fresh is by regularly cleaning them.
