What Are the Different Types of Carpet?

Before you buy a new carpet, you should know what you need in a carpet in terms of functionality. There are waterproof options such as Tigressa H2O that are perfect for homes with pets. There are also carpets that are made to be incredibly stain resistant. Not only do you want your new carpet to function well in your home, but you also want it to look good, so choose something that’ll stand up to the space you choose.

Carpet comes in five main types: level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.

Level loop carpet has a dense, low profile, which makes it great for heavily-trafficked areas.
