Perfect for residential and commercial areas

Different Styles of Carpet


It is safe to say that carpet is the most popular flooring choice in both residential and commercial areas.  Carpet fits both settings because it is versatile, durable, and, consequently, trustworthy.  But, carpet is not uniform; there are different types and styles that fit some settings better than others.  The professionals at FDW Carpet One have years of experience helping customers choose the right carpet for their desired settings, so let us lead the way to a beautiful room design.   

In residential areas such as homes, both durability and style are important.  In other words, a residential carpet needs to be both functional (stain resistant, for example) and beautiful.  We recommend cut pile styles for homes.  Cut pile carpet owns the largest share of the residential market, and it is made from yarns that are cut at equal lengths.  It is durable enough to withstand significant foot traffic, and there are even multiple stain resistant options available.  What makes cut pile carpet especially useful in homes is the fact that there are many different styles available, including velvet, Saxony, shag, cable, and frieze.  With so many different colors and styles available, there seem to be an endless number of design options.  As a result, you can rest assured that cut pile carpet will help you achieve your desired design.

As you can imagine, since commercial areas are different than residential areas, commercial carpet must be different as well.  For commercial areas, we recommend loop styles.  Loop carpet is made of uncut yarns that are (as you probably guessed) looped.  Since the yarns are looped, they are stronger than cut pile yarns and also more soil resistant.  As a result, loop carpet is better for high traffic areas in commercial settings.
