Choosing Carpet Styles

Carpet is a great flooring option for many rooms in your home, office or business because it adds softness underfoot and can improve indoor acoustics. It also offers more design flexibility than most other flooring options and comes in thousands of styles, colors and fiber patterns that range from calming and traditional to contemporary and eclectic.

When choosing a Carpet Styles, there are several considerations to keep in mind including fiber type, pile construction, texture and pricing. The type and style of carpet you choose depends on the room it will be used in, the amount of foot traffic it will endure and your personal aesthetic preferences.

Generally, there are three main types of carpet pile: cut pile, looped pile and combinations of both. Each type of carpet pile can be textured or smooth and can be made from either natural or synthetic materials.

A cut pile carpet has a densely packed, even surface and can be made with a variety of different fibers. Cut pile carpets are considered high-end and come in a wide array of color and pattern choices. Cut pile carpets are more durable than looped styles and can withstand heavy traffic. The type of fiber used, the density of tufts and the twist in the yarn help determine its durability.

Textured cut pile carpets, such as frieze and saxony, have longer fibers with more twist in the tufts than plush carpeting. This creates a more knotted look and helps hide footprints, vacuum marks and other signs of wear. These carpets are suitable for most areas of your home, but can be especially functional in rooms with heavy foot traffic.

Looped pile carpets have a more casual look and are available in a wide array of styles from traditional to modern. This carpet is a good choice for bedrooms, living rooms and stairs. The tying of the strands in looped pile carpets creates a distinctive pattern that adds a rich and elegant look to any room.

Wool carpet is a luxurious, durable and environmentally friendly option that comes in a variety of shades and textures. While it is typically more expensive than synthetic carpets, it can stand up to heavy foot traffic and stains, while offering a natural, warm feel to any room.
