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.

Why Type of Carpet is Most Durable?

When choosing a carpet, there are many factors to consider. Carpet has come a long way over the years and can be made to handle active family lifestyles and stand up to challenges such as children and pets. Characteristics such as pile styles, fibers, and the backing all play important roles in how a carpet would function in your home. There are stain resistant carpets and even water resistant carpets like Tigressá H2O™.

As we mentioned before, we offer carpets that are stain, fade, and wear resistant. That means you can live your life on your carpets almost worry free. Carpet fibers play a major role in how stain resistant and durable a carpet is. We have carpets with synthetic fibers like nylon and polyester which are inherently durable and soft. We also offer natural carpet fibers such as wool. Wool features several amazing character tics like being hypoallergenic and easy to clean.

How do you find the right balance between performance and style? 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?

In addition, as your neighborhood experts, we provide a number of premium services to make sure you make the perfect choice for your residential or commercial setting. We'll help you sort through the different carpet options, compare important features and styles, and we'll even come to you for an in-home consultation.
