Carpets

"It’s much easier for me to make major life, multi-million dollar decisions, than it is to decide on a carpet for my front porch. That’s the truth"
Oprah Winfrey

Don’t know where to start …?
This guide will help you choose from the many types of carpet out there …..

TWIST

The popular twist textured carpet is the cut pile standard. The carpet yarn is tightly twisted resulting in a versatile hardwearing finish which because of it’s texture is less likely to show marks. It also comes in different weights allowing you to use the same colour throughout your home whilst reducing costs by using suitable lighter weights in Bedrooms and more durable heavy weights in Lounges and Staircases.

We have Twist carpets in every colour and we can even have a carpet custom made to match a colour that you bring to us.


VELVET

Velvet carpet, as the name suggests, offers a softer and more luxurious look that is both rich and indulgent. Luxurious and soft to touch they look superb in Bedroom and formal Rooms. Velvets however are more prone to display tracking from foot traffic and vacuuming.


MANMADE FIBRES / SYNTHETIC

These are now very popular due to the yarn (usually Polypropylene) which has improved greatly over the years and now looks very similar to wool.
These carpets are great to use all around your home as they are hard wearing and cost effective.
They have a built in resistance to liquids, dust and dirt and some are even protected against food and drink stains for life.
In addition they are anti –static so no shocks from your carpet.


LOOP PILE

Berber/Loop pile carpets are increasing in popularity faster than any other type of carpet. The loops are made from thick or bulky yarns of wool, nylon, polypropylene or a blend of these fibres providing high durability and a luxurious cushioned effect underfoot.
