What are the Different Types of Carpet?

Carpet is made up of fibers, piles, and backings. The fibers are what make the carpet. They can be synthetic like nylon or natural like wool. Piles are the fibers that get twisted into multiple different styles like cut and loop. The backing is what holds the whole carpet together. Technology gives carpet the ability to be stain resistant, waterproof, and come in a wide variety of colors and patterns.

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