What Are the Different Types of Carpet?

  • Loop
  • Pattern
  • Frieze
  • Plush
  • Texture

Choosing a carpet is more than just choosing a color and style you like. The type of carpet you choose plays a big role in how the carpet functions in your home. Looped carpet, which uses uncut yarn, can have a low or high pile construction. This carpet type is durable and excels at hiding soil, stains, and traffic patterns. Pattern carpet utilizes a combination of high cut tufts and low loops that allow for different patterns to be made. Pattern carpet is also durable and performs well in active rooms of the home, hiding both footprints and vacuum marks.

 

Frieze Carpet also called ‘twists’, uses highly twisted yarn that gives them their signature look. These carpets can hide vacuum marks and footprints better than most other cut pile styles. Velvety soft plush carpets are more formal than other carpet types, thanks to their high-density construction. However, these carpets are not good at hiding traffic patterns because it is prone to light reflection more than any other cut pile. Delustred yarn – or non-shiny – can help reduce light reflection. Texture Carpet – Using kinked or curled yarn, is excellent for hiding traffic marks because the curled fiber reduced light reflection.

What are the Different Types of Carpet Fibers?

  • Nylon is one of the most well-known carpet fibers. It has to be treated to be stain-resistant, and it is also incredibly durable.
  • Polyester is like nylon, though it is usually less costly and even repels liquid.
  • Olefin is known for its appearance because it looks so similar to wool. It is not ideal for high-traffic areas because it isn’t as durable as other carpet fibers.
  • Triexta is naturally hydrophobic, which means that it does not absorb liquid. In addition, triexta is naturally stain-resistant.
  • Wool is a natural fiber, so if you are interested in an eco-friendly option, consider wool.  It is soft and fire-resistant and requires professional maintenance.

Where Can Carpet Be Installed?

  • Bedrooms
  • Living rooms
  • Playrooms
  • Hallways
  • Stairs
  • Offices

The ideal areas for carpets are places where there is little activity. The softness of the carpet adds comfort to these rooms and can even make them safer for small children. If you opt for a stain-resistant or pet-proof carpet, it can be installed in high-traffic areas without the worry of dirt and debris damaging the carpet. Kitchens and bathrooms are not recommended rooms for carpet because they have high moisture levels.
