Getting to Know Some Popular Carpet Styles

With so many carpet styles and textures out there, it’s easy to get overwhelmed or frustrated. We sympathize, which is why we encourage you to get a brief overview of your available options. We’ve included some popular styles below, and we also encourage you to review our Style Selection Chart, so that you’re well-informed on what style works best for you.

Saxony

Saxony is the most common style of carpet on the market. It’s what you might consider your “typical carpet.” What’s that mean? Well, it shows the lines after you vacuum. It shows footprints when you walk on it. And, as such, it usually shows wear and tear earlier on, when compared to the other styles listed below.

So, where does this carpet belong? Our recommendation is to install this carpet in a low-traffic area, so that it keeps from wearing and tearing too soon.

Textured

The Textured style is growing in popularity. It’s also known as the “Trackless” or “No Footprint” style, and rightly so, as it’s a wiz at hiding traffic patterns.

The Textured style is twisted differently than a Saxony style, which not only gives it a two-toned appearance in some instances, but also helps to hide footprints and vacuum lines. This style is good for high-traffic rooms.

Berber

Berber carpet, or “looped carpet,” not only boasts excellent durability, but also contributes a distinct character to any room. When it comes to Berber, you have to know which style to go with. There’s the “level loop Berbers,” where all the loops are the same height. But there’s also the “Multi-Level loop Berber,” where each loop may not only be different heights, but different sizes as well. Adding to its versatility is the wide variety of patterns and colors offered with Berber carpets.

Berber has earned a reputation as a durable product, and deservedly so. However, just like any other carpet on the market, there are varying grades, meaning buying a Berber carpet doesn’t automatically mean you’re getting a high quality Berber carpet to meet your needs. Do your homework on the types of grades available before you make your purchase.

Frieze

A Frieze style is somewhat similar to the Textured style, except the Frieze takes the twist to a deeper level. Frieze carpets have a much heavier twist than Textured styles, making it one of the most durable styles you can buy. It’s built to hide footprints and vacuum lines and can handle the challenge of a highly trafficked room.

Cut and Loop

The Cut and Loop, or “Sculptured” style, is a timeless classic. You’ll commonly see this style in multi-colored patterns, although solid colors do exist. Why is the Cut and Look called the Sculptured style? Take a look at the patter: the way it’s assembled, this carpet shows an almost carved apperance. This doesn’t just add style to your space. It also hides soil, and wear and tear extremely well, particularly if the carpet is multi-colored.

One of the unique features of the Cut and Loop is that even an entry-level quality carpet will hold up well in high-traffic areas. This makes it a great option for the budget-conscious consumer who still wants high quality.

Summary

Now that you know some of the most common and popular carpet styles available, your work is not done. Don’t forget to consider the space your carpet will go in. Do you have wallpaper, special patterns, or furniture and window treatments that need to be considered? Rooms that already have a rich pattern will probably do well with a solid-color carpet.

If you’re looking to add more life to your room, then a patterned carpet may be your best bet.

Choosing the right style, color and grade of carpet can be intense. But we can help make the process easier. Let us know how we can help you find the right carpet for your space.
