Key differences in carpet types

Have you walked into a carpet store in Indianapolis lately? The choices are almost overwhelming. Colors, yarn types, manufacturers... there are a lot of options to consider in carpet. So how do you know which carpet type is best for you? Let the family-friendly staff from Kermans carpet store in Indianapolis help you learn more about the best carpet types.


Picking the best carpet for your home

Choosing carpet is more involved than just picking a color that goes with your decor. You need to pick a carpet that matches your lifestyle. Some carpets are plush and soft, just right for a formal dining room or perhaps a guest room. Other carpets have a distinct pattern that hides traffic well, just right for a busy family room. There's a type of carpet for just about any lifestyle:

  • Loop carpets are the most popular choice for high traffic areas. These carpets are made to withstand a lot of wear and tear and are easy to keep clean. Berber style carpets are a popular type of loop carpet. 
  • Cut pile carpets are the most common type of carpet. Sometimes called tufted carpets because the yarns are cut and allowed to tuft, this carpet is comfortable and versatile. Depending on the type and density of the yarn, this can stand up to a variety of uses. It is an excellent choice for most bedrooms. 
  • Textured carpets. When the yarns from a cut pile carpet are twisted, they take on a new look and also a new ability to better handle high traffic. Textured carpets can also incorporate a variety of yarn thickness and textures to create more contemporary looks for your floor. 


With all of these wonderful choices, it's no surprise that carpet remains the most popular floor choice for Indianapolis homeowners.
