What are the Different Types of Carpet?

Learning that there are different types of carpet can be surprising to many people. Not only do the different kinds of carpet function differently, but they also have distinct features when it comes to how they look. Balancing style and efficiency is something you will want to accomplish with your new carpet purchase, and understanding the types that are on the market is the first step.

Where Can Carpet Be Installed?

Adding or replacing carpet in rooms tends to add warmth and comfort. Carpet is also inviting and can make a room feel relaxed.  Family rooms, bedrooms, and formal living rooms are all spaces that homeowners enjoy feeling cozy in, and these rooms are also recommended for carpet installation. Some carpets are stain and wear resistant, and can also be installed in hallways, stairways, playrooms, and other areas where activity is high.
