Choosing the Carpet Type for Your Home

Choosing the carpet type for your home? Choosing a carpet type can be challenging, with a number of things which must be considered. Fortunately, Joe Walker’s Flooring have the tips to help you in choosing the carpet type best suited for your home.

Woven Vs Tufted

When it comes to choosing the carpet type for your home, you first need to consider whether woven or tufted carpet is most suitable. Tufted carpet is incredibly popular due to its springy nature as well as being available in a range of colours and materials. Woven carpets tend to be very sturdy, however, woven carpets are not suitable if you have pets as their claws can get caught in the loops.

Carpet Pile

Carpet pile must also be considered when choosing the carpet type for your home. Types of carpet pile include:

Pile Fibre

When choosing the pile fibre for your carpet, there are three main options:

  • Natural
  • Synthetic
  • Blend

Each pile fibre has its own unique characteristics, while wool is a great insulator, many synthetics are stain resistant and blend carpets bring together some of the great qualities of each fibre type. Check out this blog article to find out more about the different types of pile fibre available.

We bought carpets and LVT from joe walkers flooring for our new house and I couldn't be happier with the service and end result. The team in the showroom are very knowledgable and allow you time to look around without pouncing on you and trying to sell to you like you would get in larger companies. Danny came out and measured the house and once we had chosen the flooring, joe sent me the quote promptly. The day of the fitting, joes fitters arrived on time and worked quickly and efficiently and left no mess behind. I would not hesitate in recommending friends and family go to joe walkers flooring.
