Carpet Guide

Perhaps you’re planning a new home, or you’ve bought a home, or maybe you just need a change—to your floors. You have choices. You can go with solid wood, laminate flooring, or different kinds of tiles. Or, you can put down carpet. Carpet is the home flooring standard and it has been a part of homes for a long time. There are many reasons that carpeting is the flooring of choice of millions of homeowners. One important benefit of carpeting is that it is often the one thing that helps bring rooms together. More than paint or furniture, carpets can have beautiful colors and patterns that can help make any room lighter or darker—depending on your taste and style. A dark carpet allows you choose paint and furniture that creates the atmosphere and the image that you want. 

Expert Advice - Choosing a Carpet Style

Jim Aaron, our VP of Merchandising for Carpet One Floor & Home, shares some information on the different carpet styles that are available.

Carpet Benefits

A lighter carpet offers the same options to bring the space together. A practical benefit of carpet is the warmth it provides. Not only does it provide a warm place to play with a baby, a puppy, or a kitty, but it helps keep homes warmer by acting as an insulator. You also shouldn’t underestimate the feeling of warmth carpet can provide.  Many people will think about laying on the floor while watching a movie or television show with the whole family, or laying down after a big holiday meal. Carpets often remind us of cozy feelings of family. People don’t always think about the fact that carpets are actually easier to keep clean than other floors. People who have wooden floors know what it’s like to sweep the floor, then see a dust bunny under the coffee table. Somehow it is almost impossible to get all of the dirt and cobwebs. 

Carpet for Living Rooms

A good vacuuming once or twice a week, and thorough carpet cleaning—and you can even hire a residential carpet cleaning— once a year or as needed, and you know your floor is clean when you have carpets. People with carpets also see fewer dust particles in the air. That is because those particles stay in the carpet until they can be vacuumed, rather than being stirred up every time someone walks through the room. This makes carpets especially beneficial for people with asthma. Another health benefit is carpets are easier for toddlers and older people to walk on. Wood floors tend to be slicker, and the transition between the wood and a rug is also a hazard. There are many reasons to choose carpets. Their looks and style provide variety, and they make homes feel, and look warmer. When choosing new flooring options for your home, don’t forget the benefits of carpets.

What are the Different Types of Carpet?

One of the benefits of carpet is the warmth it provides. Not only does it provide a warm place to play with a baby, a puppy, or a kitty, but it helps keep homes warmer by acting as an insulator. You also shouldn’t underestimate the feeling of warmth carpet can provide.  Carpets often remind us of cozy feelings of family. Depending on the carpet you choose, you can combine the warmth of family and the style of your favorite designer. Not everyone knows about the fact that carpets can be easy to keep clean with stain resistant and pet proof options.

Choosing a carpet that balances the home you’ve created in your mind with the practicality of a carpet that works with your life is the end goal. There are five main types of carpet, and choosing which one is best for you is crucial. The five types are level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.
