Carpet Guide

At Contract Carpet One Floor & Home in Beltsville, MD, we provide our customers with the best quality carpets available. Carpet is still a top choice for homeowners today because of the comfort it brings to a home. There are many features of carpet,  such as the pile style, the carpet cushion, and the base material. What all carpets have in common is the combined style, relief, and functionality in one floor. We have the experts to help you pick out your new carpet floor.

Be sure to check out the video below to learn more about the different styles of carpet that are available:

What Are the Different Types of Carpet?

The pile styles are the fibers that are twisted and can be cut, looped, or cut and looped. You also want to choose the color of your carpet to either compliment your existing home décor, brighten up a room, or to possibly hide stains and pet fur. The types of fibers also impact how your carpet will function. Synthetic fibers are great for durability, but a natural fiber like wool has many great properties that can make a positive impact in your home.

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