Best Types of Carpet

There are a number of types of carpet available today, based on how the fibres are attached to the carpet backing.


The five primary carpet styles are level loop, pattern, frieze, plush, and textured. Each varies in the way the fibers are attached, but there are also a variety of carpet fibers. Certain carpets have synthetic fibres, while others have natural fibres like wool.



  • Nylon is a sturdy fibre that’s synthetic and stain resistant. It’s very popular for busy homes. Fibres need to be pretreated for ultimate durability.
  • Polyester looks and feels like nylon but is more inexpensive. Premium polyester carpet is tough on wear and stains.
  • Olefin carpet fibres resist fading and will hold on to their colours.  It tends to be less wear-resistant than other options.
  • Triexta is a newer synthetic fibre that’s armed with built-in stain-resistant properties.
  • Wool is the most popular natural fibre and is eco-friendly. Wool carpet is flame resistant so it’s marvellous for a nursery.



Understanding Your Carpet’s Construction

You’ll find high, medium, and low carpet piles in our local flooring store.


Some of our favourite cozy carpets are shag and frieze carpets, with their warm, deep piles meant to comfort on a chilly winter night.


We also offer cut piles, loop piles, and cut loop constructions.



  • Cut pile has fibres that are sheered on the top.
  • Loop pile means your fibres are rewoven into the backing.
  • Cut loop carpets means fibres are both cut pile and loop pile to form lovely patterns.
