Types of carpet

Cut pile carpet is the most popular type, featuring sheared fiber strands with exposed ends. It’s available in a variety of lengths and thicknesses, so you’ll have a range of options to choose from. The twist of individual strands in cut pile is key when making a decision—a tighter, heavier twist will add texture and durability to your carpet to help it stand up to matting and crushing.

Loop pile, on the other hand, features un-sheared loops of fiber that create opportunities for pattern and texture in addition to adding extra durability. Tight, heavily twisted loops offer more resistance to matting and crushing. Just be careful not to snag any loops, as this can cause damage to your carpet.

Cut & loop pile is a combination of the two above types of carpet. It has both sheared and un-sheared fibers, which results in patterned surfaces with artistic texture.

No single type of carpet is better than the others—it all comes down to personal design preference.
