What types of carpet are available?

Cut pile

carpet is the most popular type, featuring sheared fiber strands with exposed ends. It’s available in a variety of lengths and thicknesses, so you’ll have a range of options regardless of what you’re specifically looking for. The twist of individual strands in cut pile is key when making a decision – tighter, heavier twist will add texture and durability to your carpet to help it stand up to matting and crushing.

Loop pile

on the other hand, features un-sheared loops of fiber that not only add extra durability, but also create opportunities for pattern and texture. Tight, heavily twisted loops offer more resistance to matting and crushing. One potential issue to watch out for when choosing looped pile is pulled-out loops, which, when snagged, can cause damage to your carpet.

Cut & Loop pile

is the third category, which combines the previous two types of carpet. Having both sheared and un-sheared fibers leads to patterned surfaces and artistic use of texture. No one type of carpet is better than the others – your choice will largely come down to personal design preference.

  • Pattern

    Pattern construction carpet is made with varying loop and cut heights for looks that range from bold and dramatic to simple and understated. This low-profile style handles traffic beautifully.

  • Texture

    Texture construction carpet has long, crimped yarns for a casual look that works for any room. With higher pile for a super-soft feel, it's no wonder that texture is our most popular style.

  • Loop

    Loop construction carpet has dense, looped strands and a low profile for a clean, low-maintenance look. This style is durable, reliable, and ideal for high-traffic areas.

  • Frieze (Twist)

    Frieze, or twist construction, carpet has high, twisted yarns for a longer crimped look and relaxed feel. Its long twists create dimension and visual interest as well as a bouncy, springy feel underfoot.
