If you are shopping for new carpet for your home, Floor Works has your solution. At Floor Works you will find a wide variety of carpet types that fit your needs and budget. When deciding on flooring for you home, you need to take several considerations — including the type, your ability to maintain and clean, and the durability you are seeking. Carpet traditionally comes in four main styles — loop, pattern, textured and frieze.
- Frieze, which also is known as twist carpet, is made from long yarns that are twisted together. The result is a flooring with bounce and dimension. You almost feel like you’ve got a little bounce in your own step when walking on frieze!
- Textured also has long yarns that form a high, soft pile. It looks more casual than frieze and is one of the most popular types.
- Patterned is an elegant look that gives you a unique pattern. It is flatter than the frieze, textured and looped and is constructed from carpet loops of varying heights to create patterns.
- Loop carpet is the densest of all the styles. It is constructed from strands of yarn that are looped and are durable.
When considering all of these styles, you’ll want to consider how much you can maintain them and what your home-life needs are. You can add stain resistance to any of our carpets, making them more durable and easier to clean. Just remember that some carpet types take traffic and dirt better than others. Frieze, for example, and other carpets made from long yarns sometimes can get caught in a vacuum cleaner. Carpets with mixed colors of yarn are especially good at concealing stains and dirt. Patterned carpet can make elegant and dramatic looks for a grand entryway. Visit the Floor Works showroom to feel samples of our carpet and take home a few to test on your floors.
