Knowing All the Carpet Types Available Will Help You Make Your Choice

The Manufacturing of Carpet—Which Can Be Described as Sewing Strands of Yarn into a Backing Material—Creates Thousands of Yarn Loops

When the loops are cut, we create a CUT PILE carpet, often known as PLUSH or SAXONY.

When the loops remain uncut, we create a LOOP carpet.

These two options can be combined to create four CONSTRUCTION possibilities:

Pattern carpets beautifully blend loops and cuts in varying heights for dramatic, unique patterns, ranging from floral designs to geometric to pin-dot.

Cut & Loop

In addition to CONSTRUCTION types, Denver Carpet Brokers Co. and the rest of the industry divides its carpet products into the following eight STYLES. In our online product catalog, you can search by these styles to help you determine a favorite.

PLUSH

Smooth (known as a Saxony) – This style of cut pile carpet is achieved when the tufts of yarn are sheared to a low, smooth pile height for uniform color and a formal look.
Texture – This popular style offers a smooth, level finish, but the yarns have more twist, which creates a less formal look.
Twist (known as a Frieze) – The yarns in this style are even longer, creating a soft, comfortable, casual appearance.
Shag – The yarns in this style are even longer, creating a soft, comfortable, casual appearance.

PATTERNS

Pattern carpets beautifully blend loops and cuts in varying heights for dramatic, unique patterns, ranging from floral designs to geometric to pin-dot.

LOOP

Level Loop (often called a Berber) – In this style, all the loops are the same height. The dense, firm surface of a loop pile carpet makes it ideal for high-traffic areas.
Patterned Loop – The yarns in this style are also looped, but they are at two or three varying heights. The various heights can be arranged to create a wide range of patterns and textures.

PRINTS

As the name suggests, these carpets feature a design printed directly onto the carpet for a stylish, often dramatic look.
