Different Types of Carpet


Carpet is versatile when it comes to style and can blend in with the décor of any room. It functions best in rooms like dens, living rooms, and bedrooms. If you want to install carpet in a hallway, on your stairs, or near an entryway, make sure you choose one that is resistant to staining and is easy to clean. You should consider how much traffic the carpet will be exposed to before going ahead and purchasing the first one you see. With carpet, you won’t have to sacrifice functionality for comfort. You will want to consider the overall design of your home and which carpet would work best. It is essential to choose a carpet that gives the best balance of style and function to make you happy.



Carpet is made up of fibers, piles, and backings. The fibers are what make a carpet; they can be synthetic like nylon or natural like wool. The backing is what holds the whole carpet together. There are five main types of carpet: level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.



Loop Carpet uses looped and uncut yarn that can have a high or low pile height giving the carpet a looser or tightly constructed feel. This type of carpet is strong and can hide soil and stains very well. It is also resistant to traffic patterns.



Pattern Carpet is a mix of high-cut tufts and lower loops that allow the carpet to display different patterns. These carpets are durable and are great in high-traffic areas since it gives a dimension of texture that hides traffic patterns with ease.



Frieze Carpet uses highly twisted yarn that gives the carpet its signature look. This carpet handles active homes with ease and is less likely to show traffic patterns than any other carpet type.



Plush Carpet is famous for its velvety feel that is the result of its high-density construction. Plush has a more formal appearance than other carpet types but is more prone to traffic patterns thanks to its light reflection.



Texture Carpet is called “trackless” because of its innate footprint and vacuum mark hiding abilities. Texture Carpet uses kinked or curled yarn to reduce light reflection.


Are Carpets Pet-Friendly?


Pets play a major role in a homeowner's decision to purchase new flooring for their home. Your pets are great at making messes but are not great at cleaning them up. Our selection of carpets features options that are designed with pets in mind. These types of carpets are stain-resistant and easy to clean. They also feature low pile heights with durable fibers to ensure your pet's nails do not get caught and cause the fibers to run. We also have pet-friendly carpets that are resistant to moisture, so if your pet has an accident you won’t have to stress about your floors being permanently damaged.


Where can Carpet be Installed?


Carpet’s softness is unmatched by any other flooring. When you think of the rooms where you would want a soft floor, most people think of bedrooms, living rooms, and offices. Carpet is ideal for these rooms. Our selection of stain-resistant carpets can be installed in more areas of the home like hallways and stairs. Bathrooms and kitchens are not suitable for carpets because they are high moisture areas.
