Carpet Guide

Carpet has gained its popularity because of its wide array of design options, comfort levels, and enhanced fibers. Enhanced fibers has made carpet stronger than ever. Many of today's carpets are treated with stain-resistant technology and some are even waterproof and pet-proof. The many benefits of carpet have made it the top flooring choice in both residential and commercial settings. Carpet is a natural insulator that will help keep a room feeling cozy while also reducing noise levels. We recommend carpet for living rooms and bedrooms. 

Compared to other flooring, carpet is extremely versatile when it comes to style options. There are many colors, patterns, and textures to choose from. No design is off limits. Our flooring experts want to help you find the carpet that would function best in your home or office. Be sure to check out the video below to learn more about the different styles of carpet that are available.

What Are the Different Types of Carpet?

When you are looking for a new carpet for your home, there are some important factors you need to take into consideration. Wear resistance and durability are some of them. No matter how durable the carpet you choose, it's important to understand that fading does over time, but there are ways to help minimize the effects.

Have pets or an active family? Waterproof carpets make cleaning up spills simple. Ask our experts about our water-resistant and stain-resistant carpet options. With so many carpet options available, balancing performance and style is simple. The most important thing is choosing the right type of carpet that is designed with your space in mind, and our team is here to help.

There are five main types: level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.

Level loop carpet has a dense, low profile, which makes it great for heavily-trafficked areas.
