Expert Advice - Choosing a Carpet Style

Jim Aaron, our VP of Merchandising for Carpet One Floor & Home, shares some information on the different carpet styles that are available.

What Are the Different Types of Carpet?

When selecting a new carpet for your home or office, there are many factors and features you'll need to take into consideration. One of the most important things to consider is wear and durability. Do you need a waterproof carpet that can handle spills and stains? Or maybe you need a carpet that can handle pet accidents. At the same time, you need to balance performance with style, as your new carpet should fit perfectly into your overall design. You definitely want to make sure to choose a carpet that will look good and last long in your preferred setting.
