The 411 on carpet flooring styles

There's a carpet style to complement any room decor and lifestyle. Come to Just Carpets & Flooring Outlet in Howell, NJ, to enjoy the largest selection of trendy styles.

But first, read on to learn more about carpeting and the available styles.

Carpet pile

Carpet pile is defined by the individual fiber length, measured from the surface of the backing to the top of the fibers, and the fibers' density.

Generally, a carpet made with closely packed fibers or a thick pile will enjoy a lifespan of 10 to 15 years.

Loop pile styles

Loop pile carpet styles, ideal for high-traffic areas in your home, are created by looping fibers onto the carpet backing.

This hard-wearing floor covering resists crushing, soiling, and staining, and it keeps dirt near the surface where the vacuum cleaner can easily pick it up.

Berber styles

Berber carpet, first hand-woven by the Berbers in North Africa, is a popular loop pile carpeting style.

Traditional styles show off a light-colored background with highlights of brown and gray dots. Today, many color combinations are available.

Cut pile styles

Softer cut pile carpet styles are created when fiber loops are cut at the tips. Saxony styles have medium-length fibers that stand straight to produce a formal look.

Varying length fibers that makeup frieze carpeting styles such as shag are twisted so tightly they curl back to create a casual look.
