Today there are more carpet options than ever before that each offers its unique pros and cons. There are multiple types of carpet styles, fibers, and cuts that allow for a variety of carpets that work for a variety of homes and lifestyles. It’s important to factor in these aspects when considering what type of carpet, you want in your home. Lucky, our selection of carpet covers a wide variety of carpet types that will meet nearly any vision, price, and need you could have.
Nylon – This synthetic fiber is one of the strongest carpet fibers, however, it usually needs to be treated to protect against spills.
Polyester – Another synthetic carpet fiber, polyester is less expensive than nylon. While it has some natural stain-fighting abilities, it is less durable than nylon.
Triexta – This durable fiber is a newer type that, unlike nylon, doesn’t need to be treated to be stain-resistant.
Olefin – Commonly used for accent rugs and carpets, this carpet fiber is not recommended for high-trafficked areas.
Wool – A natural carpet fiber made from sustainable materials. This carpet is easy to clean and because of the denseness of the fiber dust and dirt are trapped until vacuumed up instead of floating around.
