Carpet Guide

The epitome of design versatility, carpeting continues to be one of the most popular flooring choices for both residential and commercial settings. Today, there are carpet options in a wide variety of colors and patterns, so there are very few limits, design-wise. At Barry Neal Carpet One Floor & Home of Altamonte Springs, FL we carry one of the region’s largest carpet selections, with a huge variety of brands and styles to choose from. 

Unlike hard-surface flooring, carpeting is extremely soft and warm underfoot, offering unlimited comfort. With so many options on the table, selecting your new carpet can be a daunting process, but we’ve certainly got you covered. Our onsite experts can guide you each step of the way and help you make a choice that’s a perfect fit for your unique household. 

Expert Advice - Choosing a Carpet Style

Jim Aaron, our VP of Merchandising for Carpet One Floor & Home, shares some information on the different carpet styles that are available.

Types of Carpet

A major factor in carpet function is fiber, or carpet pile. Carpet pile plays a vital role in how your new rug will wear as the years pass. Different pile types are comprised of various materials, and it’s important to priorities your needs as you select your carpet. Is stain-resistance a top priority? Are you looking for carpeting that can handle heavy-duty wear? Does someone in your home suffer from allergies? Or, does comfort reign supreme?

There are five types of carpet pile: level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.

Where to Install Carpeting

Carpeting presents options for many types of interior settings. For family rooms, playrooms, kids’ rooms, and stairways, a durable and stain-resistant type of carpeting is a great option. Softer carpeting, such as plush or nylon, work great in your master bedroom, as they’re extremely comfortable under your bare feet. 
Carpeting shouldn’t be installed in areas prone to excessive humidity, such as your bathroom or laundry room.
