Carpet styles

There are a variety of surface texture options available, which affect the feel, appearance and performance of your carpet.

Twist piles have a coarse, rugged finish.

Loop piles replicate the appearance of natural flooring such as sisal and coir. Remember that cats and anything with long claws and loop piles do not mix! They typically come in natural and neutral shades.

Saxony has a pronounced sensuous feel with a deep pile. Very popular in bedrooms, saxonies do flatten and so are not practical in high-traffic areas.

Patterned carpet usually has a smooth velvet surface with excellent appearance retention and is very hardwearing.

By and large, the more luxurious the surface, the greater care it will need. Shorter pile generally wears better than long but is not as luxurious. It all comes down to personal taste, future plans and room usage.

Underlay is not an optional extra - it's an integral ingredient that shapes how flooring feels, wears and looks. A hugely important part of most flooring purchases is underlay. The right underlay will increase the comfort level of your flooring, as well as the lifespan of carpet by a whopping 30 – 50%. It acts as a shock absorber, protecting flooring from the comings and goings of a normal household ensuring your flooring remains looking and feeling fabulous. Some people think it’s OK to use existing underlay and if it’s quite new then that’s fine. But old underlay is much more likely to show signs of wear, especially in a high traffic area of your home, which will cause ridges and make the carpet wear unevenly. It will harbour dirt and dust and should be replaced when installing new carpets
