Carpet Guide

Carpet is comfort, style, and warmth all wrapped into one flooring product and is the top flooring option for in-home use. Carpet is made to be durable, wear resistant, and stain resistant, making it a long lasting option in your home. Colors, textures, and patterns have become an endless option in carpet selection. At Newport Floor Covering, we carry only quality brands and products in carpeting for our customers.

Carpet features several different characteristics that all play a role in how a carpet functions, from the base material, to the pile style, and even the carpet cushion underneath. Carpet continues to be a popular choice because of its unmatched comfort and style.

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.

What Types of Carpet Are Available?

Carpets are made of fibers that are cut and twisted into piles. Different piles include cut, loop, and a combination of cut and loop. Carpet fibers can be made out of different materials and make an impact on the look and feel of the carpet and it also affects the stain resistance of the carpet and long-tern durability. Nylon and polyester carpets are synthetic materials that are both durable and comfortable. Wool carpets however are a natural fiber that holds many positive qualities from being allergy friendly to water resistant.

There are five main types: level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.

Where Can You Install Carpet?

Since carpet features stain and wear resistant qualities, you can confidently install carpet in places like living rooms, children’s playrooms, and hallways or stairs. Carpet flooring is a perfect option for bedrooms because its softness and comfort make your room feel more relaxed and like a retreat after a long day.

Keep in mind that carpet should be kept away from areas with a lot of moisture and humidity such as bathrooms, some basements, and laundry rooms.
