These days, the popularity of hardwood floors abounds in communal living spaces. Oak, Maple, and Cherry floors can be seen in kitchens, living rooms, and hallways across the globe.

Before delving into the delicious inspiration, let us first explore the basics of different kinds of carpet one could install.
Textured Carpet, also known as a cut pile carpet, is soft and provides a traditional aesthetic. This kind of carpet will feel soft on your feet. When cut pile carpet extends beyond 1/2 an inch, it is known as Shag carpet. Some say Shag may have died in the 70s, but in the world of style, everything returns with a vengeance.
Twist carpet, or Frieze carpet, create a modern, chic look for any room. This kind of carpet is known to be durable, so perfect if your bedroom floor sees a lot of commotion.
Berber Carpet is a kind of looped carpet and is extremely durable. If your bedroom is a high-traffic place, with kids romping around or rigorous exercises taking place, this is the carpet for you. However, if you have a furry friend, their claws may be likely to get caught in the loops of a Berber carpet. You can read more about it in our Berber carpet guide.
Now that you are familiar with the common types of carpet, let's get inspired.
