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.

Where Can Carpet Be Installed?

Carpets are a great choice to install in bedrooms, dens, or you can even install them in living rooms as well. Our stain, wear and fade resistant carpets can be installed in places around your home that experience a lot of traffic like stairs, hallways, and even children’s playrooms and basements. If you have pets or young children in your household, we may recommend choosing a waterproof carpet option. Places around your home we do not recommend installing carpets in include bathrooms and kitchens because of moisture and other factors.


Types of Carpet

Carpet is a popular flooring option because of its unmatched and versatile style. There are, for example, so many different options from which to choose such as fiber, twist, style and more. Berber carpet is a popular choice in homes because it’s available in nylon and wool. We love wool carpets because they are naturally soft and wear resistant. If durability is a concern, frieze carpet is a better option.

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.
