Here are definitions of the different types of carpets:

Axminster Carpet – This is a machine-woven carpet where an enormous variety of colors are used to produce colorful patterns.

Berber Carpet – This is a carpet that has the off-white, heathered look of cloaks used by the Berber tribes of North Africa. Berber carpets use flecked yarns in loop styles with sizes from large nubby ones to smaller styles. Berber styles come in pastels and dark tones as well.

Cork Flooring – This flooring is made from the bark of cork oak trees, which is a replenishable material which is available in tiles and sheets.

Cut-and-Loop Carpet – A multi-level loop carpet, where the taller loops are sheared. The texture and variegated colorings will help to hide traffic wear and soil.

Flat Weave – These carpets are flat woven traditional to India. They are made of cotton or silk.

Level Loop Carpet – This carpet is woven or tufted with a same-height loop surface.

Plush Carpet – A smooth, dense, cut pile carpet in which individual tufts are only minimally visible, and the overall visual effect is a single level of fiber ends.

Shag Carpet – This carpet was popular in the 1970s, and a new type of contemporary shag in more up-to-date colors is gaining in popularity today. It has a  deep-pile texture with long-cut surface yarns.

Woven Carpet – This carpet makes for a sturdy textile for your floor, which includes Axminster and Wilton.


Laminates have a dense fiberboard core with a paper pattern layer sealed both top and bottom under high pressure with a plastic-like substance. It is sold as planks and panels in stone, wood, tile, and other looks.


Tile is a perfect choice for a Florida home. There are several selections: 

Ceramic Tile – This tile is made from a mixture of organic materials or clay. Ceramic tile is finished by kiln firing and comes in many shapes and sizes glazed or unglazed.
