What Are The Different Kinds of Carpet?

When you think about carpet, the first thought that comes to mind is comfort. Carpet is still the most common flooring option for home owners today. What separates a carpet from a rug? Carpets are typically installed wall to wall and cover the entire floor of a room, where a rug only covers part of the floor. At Johnson Carpet One in Duluth, MN, we are proud to offer the top carpet brands.

Types of Carpet Materials

Before choosing a carpet for your home there are some characteristics you may want to consider in your decision.  Color plays a major factor in decision, but so do pile styles. Carpet pile is the density of fibers that make up a carpet. What are the different pile types? Cut pile has fibers that are cut at the ends making the carpet denser. Loop pile is the opposite, where no fibers are left at the surface and are in a series of loops, giving the carpet an even look. Multi-level loop staggers the height of the loop fibers to create an uneven surface. Cut and loop piles also provide an uneven look but also give texture to the carpet and hide dirt.

What Type of Carpet Material is Best? 

Carpet fibers can be made out of different materials and make an impact on the look and feel of the carpet. It also determines the stain and matting resistance as well as long term durability.

  • Nylon is the most durable

  • Polyester has a comfortable feel

  • Wool is a traditional and natural fiber
