Carpet Guide

Combining style, warmth, and comfort all into one product, carpet is one of the top flooring options for homeowners. What separates a rug from a carpet is that carpets are installed wall to wall and cover the entire floor of a room, where a rug simply covers a portion of flooring. The Rug Mart Carpet One Floor & Home has what you need when it comes to new carpet in your home. We can help you find a carpet that matches the needs of your home and your personal style.

Different Types of Carpet

Besides having to choose color, you will want to consider other options as well that make up carpeting. Pile styles have unique characteristics that’ll you’ll want to know before selecting a carpet. 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.

Carpet fibers can be made out of different materials and make a difference in the look and feel of the carpet. It also determines the stain and matting resistance as well as long term durability. Wool carpet is naturally resilient and allergy friendly. Nylon carpets are incredibly durable and polyester carpets can be super soft.
