We offer many different residential and commercial carpet options, so we'll surely have a style that fits your every need.

Residential and Commercial Carpet Types

Carpet is one of the most popular flooring options in residential and commercial settings, but there are certain differences between residential and commercial carpets. In residential settings such as homes, style and comfort are most important, but durability does remain a concern. We, therefore, recommend choosing berber carpet, shag carpet, or frieze carpet. Berber carpet is probably the most popular, as it is strong and durable enough for most home settings. Frieze carpet also is durable, and it has a rather shaggy appearance that can hide dirt and stains. For extra style and softness, shag carpet is the most appropriate.

In commercial and other high-traffic settings such as offices, strength and performance are important. So, commercial carpet needs to be strong and stable enough to handle these impacts. We recommend taking a look at carpet tiles because, although they have a real carpet construction, they are built to handle foot traffic. Plus, carpet tiles, since they are installed like real tiles, are easy to replace if necessary.

If you want to add extra comfort underfoot, be sure to ask us about carpet padding.

Where can you Install Carpet?

Carpet flooring is made to be durable and comfortable. That means you can install carpet in places like living rooms, hallways, as well as bedrooms and home offices. There are carpets made to be stain and wear resistant, which are perfect for homeowners who have an active lifestyle. We even offer waterproof carpet options that are great for homes with pets, and can even be installed in finished basements. Take a look at our Carpet One Floor & Home exclusive brand Tigress® H2O™.
