Carpet Styles (Appearance & Look)


Loop Construction carpet has dense, looped strands and a low profile for a clean, low-maintenance look.  This style is durable, reliable and ideal for high-traffic areas.


Pattern construction carpet is made with varying loop and cut heights for looks that range from bold and dramatic to simple and understated. This low-profile style handles traffic beautifully.


Texture construction carpet has long, crimped yarns for a casual look that works for any room. With higher pile for a super-soft feel, it’s no wonder that texture is our most popular style.

Frieze (Twist)

Frieze or twist construction carpet has high, twisted yarns for a longer crimped look and relaxed feel. Its long twists create dimension and visual interest as well as a bouncy, springy feel underfoot.
