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

Installing carpet in your home comes with several 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 a great choice if there are family members in the home who suffer from allergies. 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 out of different types of fibers, and those fibers can impact how a carpet can perform in your home. Synthetic carpet fibers include nylon, polyester, triexta, and olefin. Wool carpets have their own special benefits like being sound absorbing and having hypoallergenic qualities. Piles are the fibers twisted up, which plays a role in the styling of the carpet. 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. There are five main types: level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.

Where can Carpet be Installed?

Carpet is traditionally installed in bedrooms and living rooms. They can handle a lot more activity though and can be installed in children’s playrooms, on staircases, and in hallways. Carpets are made to be lived on and can handle most things thrown their way. The most important thing to do to keep your carpets looking fresh is by regularly cleaning them. 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.
