Carpet Styles Guide

When it comes to choosing a carpet style for your home or space, there are various options available, each with its own aesthetic, texture, and functionality. Here are some popular carpet styles to consider:

Cut Pile:

    • Plush:?Also known as velvet or Saxony, plush carpets have a smooth and even surface with a formal appearance. They provide a luxurious feel and are great for bedrooms and formal living areas.
    • Textured:?Textured carpets have a slightly uneven surface due to twisted fibers, making them more casual and better at hiding footprints and vacuum marks. They are suitable for high-traffic areas.

Loop Pile:


    • Berber:?Berber carpets have tightly looped fibers that create a textured and durable surface. They are great for high-traffic areas and come in various patterns and colors.
    • Level Loop:?In this style, the loops are all the same height, creating a smooth and even surface. Level loop carpets are also durable and good for busy areas.

Cut and Loop:


    • Patterned:?Cut and loop carpets combine both cut pile and loop pile fibers to create intricate patterns or designs. They can add visual interest and are suitable for both formal and casual settings.

Frieze:


    • Twisted or Shag:?Frieze carpets have long, twisted fibers that create a shaggy appearance. They are soft underfoot and provide a more casual and relaxed vibe.
