Types of Carpet Styles
There are many carpet styles, but each creates a different look and texture. Here are several common styles:
This is made of carpet loops that have been cut to create individual, upstanding tips, creating a luxurious look and feel. Cut pile carpets are available in a wide variety of qualities and finishes such as Plush and Saxony.
This is a type of carpeting that generally has higher pile heights, and it is not as dense as Saxony.
Saxony carpets have yarn tufts that are closely packed, presenting a smooth, luxurious surface.
These have curled or twisted tufts that make for a textured surface that helps mask footprints. Frieze is a type of textured carpet with highly twisted tufts that curl at the pile surface. These are especially suitable for higher traffic areas.
A simple loop pile with tufts of equal height, its durable construction makes it appropriate for high-traffic areas and informal rooms. Larger loops characterize the Berber style.
This uses different lengths of pile to achieve varied surface levels. Rich surface texture and design characterize this type of carpeting.
There are several types of fibers used in carpet. Carpet can be made with one of these fibers or a blend of several fibers.
Wool: This natural fiber carpet is a luxurious flooring solution.
Nylon: This is the most widely used carpet fiber because of its durability and resiliency. Nylon is also the most inherently soil resistant. Many nylon carpets are further treated for added stain and soil resistance.
Polyester: An exceptionally soft fiber that provides great color clarity, polyester is inherently fade and stain resistant. It is also less expensive than nylon.
Polypropylene (Olefin): This is the fastest growing carpet fiber because of its resistance to stains, fading, and moisture
