Carpet & more Carpets - which one?

How should you choose your new carpet when there are so many carpets to select from? 

Firstly, think of luxury or practicality.

Why? Because this will help you slim down the choice. Let’s look at Soft carpets first, they are very popular and I would classify them as a luxury carpet. These are carpets which look and feel amazing. They add such a lot to a room. 

 

Super Soft Carpet

Super soft carpets are wonderful to touch and to sink your toes into. They add a touch of opulence to your home and a level of comfort other styles of carpet cannot give..

Luxury! The very best reason to have one! Soft, warm, cosy, and great looking!

Any Reason not to have one?

In heavily used areas carpets like these will show the signs of wear more quickly. This is a quality led issue as some carpet ranges are made to withstand flattening better. However, a style of carpet like this will be changed more often than one made to take extra heavy wear and tear. But, in my opinion, you gain such a lot from the attractiveness of the carpets aesthetics they are worth that sacrifice.

Soft saxony styled carpeting will show footmarks and hoover marks. This characteristic is just like marmite.  Love it and its definitely a carpet for you!

Twist Pile Carpet

Twist Pile Carpet has been the most popular of carpets for decades. Usurped occasionally by  the luxurious Soft Carpets we have already considered.

In the right quality they are great looking, tough bits of carpet. The colour range is huge, a bigger, better range than any other style.

If wear and tear plus looks are your most important requirements this is the carpet finish for you.

Loop pile (textured) Carpet

Loop pile carpet (textured carpets) have a very different feel and look to everything that we have looked at so far. 

They work really well in older style properties and look great in contemporary houses too. 

Firmer to the touch, they are hard-wearing tough carpets which when looked after, keep their appearance well.

Spillages, Children and Pets do not always mix with this type of flooring. They can be more easily stained and therefore spoilt if not looked after with some consideration. 

There are some horror stories out there, but in the right environment they look fantastic.

What Should My Carpet Be Made Of?

Carpet & more Carpets - which one?

What your carpet should be made of is more often decided by the price range you want to look at. 

Man-made fibres are more generally found in the lower to mid price ranges and those with wool in them are in the mid to high price points. 

There are new generation man-made fibres which are priced very much in the wool market. Plus, they are amazing and very cleanable. These are bleachable in just the same way as the lower priced polypropylene carpets which are very popular with younger families and for those of us with pets.

Man-made fibres flatten more than wool and do not recover in the same way. That I would suggest is the worst feature of all man-made floorings. 

However, they are tough long-wearing carpets and they out perform the wool carpet that are found in the same price points.

Wool and wool-nylon mixes have a great name when they are made in the right quality and that comes with a premium in price. The investment however, is well worth it.  With a little of the right advice you will enjoy a carpet for years to come, plus it will pay for itself handsomely.

Man-made carpets start from as little as £7.99 m2 rising to £ 40m2

Wool and wool/nylon mixes range from £ 24.99m2 upto £ 300.00m2

We promise to show you the best choice at the price you want to pay.
