Among the various types of flooring, carpet simply has no equal for warmth, softness, reasonable cost, and the ability to reduce ambient noise. Below, you will find three main different types of carpet designs with each with their own sub-categories. Feel free to browse them all.
SHAG (KNOWN AS A FRIEZE OR TWIST)
The yarns in this style are even longer, creating a soft, comfortable, casual appearance.
SMOOTH (KNOWN AS A SAXONY)
This style of cut pile carpet is achieved when the tufts of yarn are sheared to a smooth pile height for a uniformed and professional appearance. It is the most popular carpet style.
This popular style offers a smooth, level finish, but the yarns have more twist, which creates a less formal look.
LEVEL LOOP (KNOWN AS A "BERBER")
In this style, all the loops are the same height. The dense, firm surface of a loop pile carpet makes it ideal for high-traffic areas.
The yarns in this style are also looped, but they are at two or three varying heights. The various heights can be arranged to create a wide range of patterns and textures.
Pattern carpets beautifully blend loops and cuts in varying heights for dramatic, unique patterns, ranging from floral designs to geometric to pin-dot.
