Carpet can transform a space into something that is warm and inviting. With durable and stain resistant carpets, you will not have to worry about accidental spills and messes ruining your flooring.

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

Our selection of carpet ranges from stain resistant to waterproof to ultra-plush. A stain resistant carpet is perfect for households with young children and pets who roam freely. Pile styles will play a role in how your carpet will look and function in your home. Some pile styles are denser than others to keep dirt on the surface, whereas other pile styles with disguise the dirt until you vacuum it. Carpet color is also important. Darker colored carpets or multicolored carpets are great at hiding fur and dirt until your next cleaning day.

Knowing your fiber types is also important in choosing a carpet for your home. There are synthetic fibers like nylon and polyester that are resistant to staining and are very durable. Then there are natural fibers like wool, which retains color well, is eco-friendly, and also naturally allergy resistant.

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.
