Different Types of Carpet
Carpet is considered one of the most versatile flooring options because there are so many different types you can choose. In residential settings, we recommend choosing berber, frieze, or shag carpet. Berber carpet is most popular, as it seems to combine style with durability to suit a variety of home settings. Frieze carpet, however, is a better choice for areas with heavy foot traffic, while shag carpet has a thick construction that’s great for luxurious designs.
In commercial settings, durability is more of a concern, so commercial carpet is stronger and tougher than residential carpet. It isn’t as comfortable underfoot, but it nonetheless is available in different colors and patterns. Carpet tiles are popular in commercial settings because they are relatively easy to install and maintain.
No matter where you are installing a new carpet, you’ll need to consider factors such as pile height, density, and twist.
Where Can Carpet Be Installed?
Carpet flooring is made to be durable and stand up to everyday household challenges. Popular spaces for carpet include bedrooms, living rooms, dens, and children’s playrooms. Stain resistant carpets can be installed in virtually any room of your home, and can even be installed in hallways, on stairs, and in some cases a finished basement. We recommend avoiding installing carpet in bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms due to the amount of humidity and moisture.
