You can choose from many carpet styles and colors. That means your ultimate choice will reflect how you want to personalize your living space. Carpet can be neutral, or it can be a focal point with vibrant colors and stronger bolder patterns and textures.

Choose carpet fiber that best fits your needs

Nylon. Outperforms all other fibers in durability, resilience, and easy maintenance. This is a good choice if you want your carpet to last a decade or longer, for high-traffic areas, and in homes with kids and pets

Triexta. Is a newly classified fiber derived partly from corn sugar. It has excellent, permanent anti-stain properties. It also has good resilience, but it’s too soon to tell whether it will match the durability of nylon in high-traffic areas. Because of its superior stain resistance, this is a good choice if you have young kids or pets.

Polyester. Is stain resistant, very soft and luxurious underfoot, and is available in deep and vibrant colors. However, it’s harder to clean, tends to shed, and isn't as durable as nylon. It’s best used in low-traffic areas like bedrooms and in households without kids or pets. A nice, cushy choice if you like to exercise on the carpet.

Olefin. Is an attractive, inexpensive fiber that’s strong and resists fading, but it’s not as resilient as nylon. It’s most often made into a looped Berber with a nubby weave that conceals dirt. It has a good stain, static, and mildew resistance. Olefin carpeting is often selected for high-traffic “clean“ areas such as family rooms and play areas.
