Plus, with so many styles and colors to choose from, it’s easy to find the right carpet for every décor and every taste using this carpet guide.

There are three basic types of carpeting — Cut Pile, Loop Pile, and Cut & Loop Pile.

Pile refers to the fiber yarns which are tufted or sewn into the backing. How these yarns are cut and twisted helps determine the texture and durability of the carpet. In addition, most of the fibers are either synthetic or natural wool, which offer varying degrees of wear and stain resistance.

Carpet is also one of the easiest types of flooring to install and maintain. The easy-care features of today’s advanced stain resistant carpets allow you to enjoy a beautiful floor for many years. Simply vacuum regularly, clean up spills promptly, and have your carpet professionally cleaned every 12 to 18 months.

Formal or casual, carpet can add a warm feel to any room. Of course, not every style of carpet is designed for every type application. Read below for recommendations to help you select the best styles for your needs.

  • For formal settings, both Plush (Velvet) and Saxony carpet styles have a smooth texture with a luxurious look and feel. Saxony is more resilient than Plush, so it can be used in higher traffic areas.
