The type and style of carpet you choose is important to how you use the room and it’s practicality to your life style and décor. We are pleased to advise you on the various styles, fiber and padding you have to choose from so you can make a more informed decision on your next flooring project.
Saxony / Plush
The fiber loops are densely packed and cut at one level to create a smooth, luxurious surface. This classical style sets a traditional tone appropriate for a formal dining room or living room.
Frieze / Texture
The fiber loops are cut, then tightly twisted so the fibers appear to curl at the pile surface. This dense carpet, pronounced “free-zay”, works well in high-traffic areas.
Loop / Berber
Also known as Berber style. The fiber loops are all roughly the same height. This carpet often has flecks of additional color accenting the main hue. Loop carpet is sturdy, comfortable and great for family rooms and spill-prone areas.
Islands of high-cut pile contrast with lower loops to form an up-and-down sculptured pattern. It sets a contemporary, upscale tone – great for a family room or den.
Commercial / Industrial
Commercial carpets are normally used in office buildings and high traffic commercial areas. Most commercial carpets are either short cut pile or short loop pile construction that will mat less and wear longer than all the other styles of carpet. The trend today is that homeowners are installing commercial carpet in their dens and home offices in lieu of the traditional carpets.
