Best of all, when you visit our carpet store in Knoxville, TN, you'll find wholesale prices on every brand. Top companies like Beaulieu, Mohawk, and Shaw make these brands.

Carpet pile

Carpeting can be defined, in part, by its pile. In general, a high-quality carpet has a dense pile. Carpet fibers vary in height:
  • Low-pile - under ¼-inch
  • Medium-pile - ¼-inch to ½-inch
  • High-pile - ½-inch to ¾-inch
  • Plush carpet - over ¾-inch

Loop pile

Carpeting is manufactured on machines that loop fibers onto a backing. Short loop pile carpet, which does not accumulate dirt, is the most durable carpeting available. Since the fibers are dense and flat, the surface is smooth but not as soft as the surface of a cut pile carpet.

Cut pile

Fiber loops are cut at the tips to create cut pile carpet styles. Saxony styles feature shorter fibers that stand up straight, while frieze styles are made up of long fibers that are so tightly twisted they curl. Plush styles have a soft and luxurious feel with their tightly packed fibers.

What is TPI?

Fibers that make up cut pile styles must be twisted or turned not to unravel. Each cut pile carpet brand has a TPI, or turns per inch, noted on the label, so it's easy to judge its durability. A top-quality brand with a 5.0 or 6.0 TPI will have a long lifespan.

Pet-friendly carpet brands

Don’t discount carpet as a flooring option if you have a pet. Many manufacturers produce pet-friendly carpeting that is backed by a comprehensive warranty. These highly stain-resistant brands are ideal for any home or business owner who prefers extra tough carpeting.

Carpet padding

Padding, also called underlayment, is a must-have when choosing carpet flooring. A carpet rubs against the subfloor without padding, and it quickly becomes worn. The type of padding needed for a project is dependent on the type of carpet that will be installed.
