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

Before purchasing a carpet, you should consider factors such as your lifestyle as well as your weekly cleaning routine. Characteristics such as pile styles, fibers, and the backing all play important roles in how a carpet would function in your home. Carpet is more durable than most think, it can stand up to stains, and can be made to be resistant to fading and wear.

We offer carpet for even the most active homes, with superior stain, wear and fade resistance. 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 can be. We have carpets with synthetic fibers like nylon and polyester, and we also offer natural carpet fibers such as wool. Wool features several amazing character tics like being hypoallergenic and easy to clean.

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?

Typically homeowners choose to install carpet in bedrooms, dens, or living rooms. Evolving technology allows carpet to adapt to new home settings, and there are carpets that can withstand heavy traffic and can be installed in hallways and on staircases. Carpets today are made to stay looking newer for longer, but obviously regular maintenance such as vacuuming and steaming can increase the longevity of your new carpets.

How to Care for Carpet?

Before you begin cleaning, check the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure you use the correct cleaning products. Caring for your carpet over time not only keeps it looking newer for longer, but can also increase its life-cycle.
