In the beginning, choosing a carpet style can be quite overwhelming especially when you’re choosing from a whole showroom. Fortunately, there is only a number of categories for residential carpets to help narrow down your search. Take a look at these carpet styles:


This is the “iconic” style of carpet and it’s what most people imagine when they think of carpets for their home. Saxony carpets have a medium height and they can range from a textured to a velvety appearance. This type also comes in varying looks which means it’s suitable for any style of décor.


These days, Berber carpets refer to those with a looped style. The loops can range from large, chunky ones to small and tight ones. There are Berber carpets out there which look sophisticated while still adding a nice, comfortable feel to the space.



This carpet style evolved from the shag carpet. Frieze carpets usually have long fibers which are tightly twisted making them extremely durable. These carpets are ideal for spaces with a laid-back feel since they have a somewhat messy look to them.
