Nothing says comfort like carpet. A soft, plush carpet that feels great on bare feet can be one of the greatest comforts of home. Carpet flooring is also a great way to add color and texture, and the options available are nearly endless.
Of course, comfort isn’t the only thing to consider. For many of our clients, especially those with families, durability is a concern as well. You want carpet that will look great and stand the test of time. Our selection at ACo offers high-quality carpet that doesn’t skimp on style. We’ve got several fashionable options that are great for the high-traffic areas of your home.
How can you choose the right carpet for your home? It all comes down to choosing the right combination of style and function. The six basic types of carpet are textured, Saxony (plush), cable, loop, frieze, and cut & loop.
Textured carpet is very dense, and has a tailored look. It’s a very popular choice because it minimizes vacuum marks and footprints. It’s great for any area of the home, but especially for those with high traffic.
Saxony carpet is a more formal, traditional style. This plush style is best suited for areas like the master bedroom or a formal dining room, and will show footprints and vacuum tracks.
Cable carpet, also known as shag carpet, is a very comfortable style made of thicker, longer yarn. This type of carpet works best in a bedroom or living room, and also makes a lovely area rug.
Loop carpet is also known as Berber, and it’s a durable, functional choice. This carpet minimizes traffic patterns, and works well in any area of the home.
Frieze carpet is a casual style that’s great for any room in your home, especially active areas. Each strand of this carpet is wound so tightly that the end curls over, and it minimizes footprints and other traffic markings.
Cut & Loop carpet uses both cut and looped yarn to create a pattern. The variety of patterns available means you have almost endless options for your home. This is a very durable choice that is perfect for adding style to a bedroom or living area.
