What Are the Different Types of Carpet?

When selecting a new carpet for your home or office you'll need to consider wear resistance and durability. Do you need a waterproof carpet that can handle spills and stains? Maybe you need a commercial carpet that will stand up to heavy foot traffic? No matter what you need, you want to make sure to choose a carpet that will look good and last long in your preferred setting.

The most important thing you need to do is choose the right type of carpet that balances performance and style. There are five main types: level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.
