Carpet Guide

Although hard surface flooring options such as vinyl flooring are being found in more and more homes, carpet is still the most popular flooring options in residential and commercial settings. Why is carpet so popular? For one thing, it offers comfort that is unmatched. Plus, most modern-day carpets offer premium stain and wear resistant technologies, so they can stand up to everyday life.

Carpet, especially compared to other flooring options, is extremely versatile in terms of style. There are so many different colors, shades, and patterns from which to choose, so no design is considered off limits when you choose carpet. Be sure to check out the video below to learn more about the different styles of carpet that are available:

What Are the Different Types of Carpet?

When selecting a new carpet for your home or office, there are many factors and features you'll need to take into consideration. First off, you'll need to consider wear resistance and durability. Do you need a waterproof carpet that can handle spills and stains? Maybe you need a commercial carpet that will stand up to heavy foot traffic? At the same time, you need to balance performance with style, as your new carpet should fit perfectly into your overall design. You definitely want to make sure to choose a carpet that will look good and last long in your preferred setting.

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.

Level loop carpet has a dense, low profile, which makes it great for heavily-trafficked areas.

Patterned carpet is made of loops and cut fibers of varying heights, resulting in unique patterns.

Textured carpet has longer fibers resulting in a casual look that's great for home settings.

Frieze carpet has long, twisted yarns, and these create dimension and sensation underfoot.

Plush, or velvet, carpet has a more formal appearance because of its thick construction.
