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.

Commercial Carpet

Carpet can also be installed in commercial settings. Commercial carpet tends to be harder underfoot than residential carpet, but it is more durable. It can handle heavy traffic and stains, and it also remains easy to maintain. Carpet tiles are popular in commercial settings because they are exceptionally durable and easy to clean and even replace. They are installed like regular tiles, but they do have real carpet constructions.

Types of Carpet for Home

There are a few different carpet types from which you can choose. For residential settings, we recommend popular options such as Berber carpet, shag carpet, and frieze carpet. Berber carpet might be the most popular, as it seems to combine style with performance. Berber is available in wool and nylon constructions. In heavy traffic areas, however, frieze carpet is more appropriate because it does well to handle foot traffic and other impacts. If softness and luxury are your main concerns, shag carpet is a great choice because of its thick construction.

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

Where Can Carpet Be Installed?

Carpet is made to be resistant to stains, fading, wear and more, so that means you can install carpet in several different places around your home. Common places to install carpet include bedrooms, living rooms, children’s playrooms, as well as hallways and even stain cases. Keep in mind that carpet is an absorbent material and should be kept away from areas of your home with high humidity and moisture.
