Best Types of Carpet


Carpet is made using both synthetic and natural materials and is distinguished by it pile style.


Synthetic carpet fibers like nylon are soft and very durable, while natural carpet fibers like wool are eco-friendly and hold their color, while repelling allergens.


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



  • Nylon carpet is a sturdy synthetic product that has a clear fiber-coating for formidable stain protection. Though pricey, nylon carpet lasts for years and is beloved by busy families.


  • Polyester carpet is another type of synthetic carpet that feels like nylon but tends to be more affordable. Modern polyester has greatly improved in recent years and today’s products are stain resistant.


  • Triexta carpet is a rougher type of synthetic flooring known for its designs and patterns. Triexta is popular in commercial settings since it holds strong against heavy soiling and frequent footsteps.


  • Olefin carpet is distinguished by its dramatic patterns and soft surface. This type of synthetic fiber is designed for fashion more than function, so reserve it for formal rooms where life tends to be quieter.


  • Wool carpet is a natural fiber favorite that’s very warm and soft. It effectively insulates any space it graces and can last for generations.


Can I Use Carpet If I Have Pets or Little Kids at Home?


Short answer: YES! But choose your carpet carefully.


Today’s stain-resistant and moisture-ready carpet products are designed to combat whatever the day brings: spilled juice boxes, kitten claws, and even puppy puddles. There are even fully waterproof carpet, featuring industrial backing and moisture-wicking fibers to keep any unseen spills from damaging your subfloor or padding.


Where Can I Install Carpet?


Carpet is ideal for bedrooms, living rooms, and children’s playrooms because it’s soft, stylish, and easy to care for.


It should be avoided in bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms due to excessive and constant moisture. Choose a durable, stain-resistant option if you have a busy space to cover.


Should I Have My Carpet Professionally Installed?


We recommend professional carpet installation for the best long-term results.

Novices take note: an improperly installed carpet can easily wear out before its time. Additionally, most of our carpet product warranties require a professional installation as a condition of extended coverage.
