What Are the Different Types of Carpet?

All of our carpets are of the highest quality and come in a variety of pile types, colors, and fiber materials. We carry traditional carpet options in addition to popular carpet trends. Whether you’re looking for a bright patterned carpet for your playroom, a stain-resistant or waterproof carpet for your family room or a more subdued area rug for a study, we’ve got you covered.

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

Where can Carpet be Installed?

Carpet flooring is well suited for homes with little to no traffic, or homes with children and pets roaming freely. We can help you find a carpet that suits your home and lifestyle. Carpets are more durable than you think and can handle places around your home with heavy traffic like hallways, stairs, and even living rooms. Transform rooms you like to relax in into cozy and inviting spaces as your own personal retreat. Places you should avoid installing carpet in include bathrooms and kitchens because of the daily moisture.

We also offer waterproof carpets. Waterproof carpets are usually made with fibers that are resistant to moisture and feature a backing that prevents water from seeping through to your carpet padding and subfloor. Waterproof carpets are perfect for children’s playrooms and even finished basements.
