What are the different types of carpet styles available?

Carpeting styles and fibers range considerably, each offering specific benefits and attributes that are sure to meet your requirements. Today, we’re going to talk about some of the styles you are most likely to find and what they have to offer your household, so read along here for more information.

Each carpeting style is different

Some floor covering options are very similar, but each one is different in its way. That's why understanding a little more about carpet styles, and types are essential as you shop for yours.

  • Nylon – One of the most popular materials, these strong fibers resist stains and keep their shape for years to come.
  • Polyester – These floors are tough and durable while also offering a wealth of style options that are easy to clean.
  • Olefin – Also known as polypropylene, these floors are much like wool, incredibly strong, and so moisture-resistant they are often used in outdoor applications.
  • Wool – The only all-natural carpeting material, these fibers are resistant to dirt and stains, but they should never be allowed to get wet, as they can hold ten times their weight in water.
  • Triexta – An excellent choice for pets and children, these fibers hold up well under lots of daily wear.
