As your locally owned neighborhood flooring store, we know that understanding the basics of carpet will help you make the right decisions for your next installation.
When you choose your new carpet, you want to think of things such as color, pattern, design, texture, and performance. These characteristics are in part defined by pile style, fiber type, and overall carpet design.
There are carpets made today for all kinds of lifestyles, including carpets that are made to be waterproof or stain-resistant to combat pet accidents and children’s messes. The five main types of carpet: level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.
The types of fiber used in your carpet will impact its performance and texture. Synthetic carpet fibers are great for durability and softness, while natural carpet fibers like wool are eco-friendly and crush resistant. Fibers are twisted together into piles, which can be cut, loop, or cut and loop. There are also high, medium, and low pile carpets. Here is a summary of the types of carpet fibers you’ll most commonly encounter:
Best Carpet for Pet Lovers
Need a carpet that can handle your favorite furry family member? Today there are better pet-friendly carpet choices available than ever before. Look for performance features like stain-resistance and odor-resistance.
We even have fully waterproof carpets, which have an industrial backing that blocks pet accidents and spills from escaping to the carpet pad. You should also try to find a carpet design that disguises pet fur between cleanings and won’t snag claws.
