What is a Cut Pile Carpet?

Cut pile carpets are named so due to the cut fibres, unlike loop pile carpets, the loops are cut to create a cut pile carpet. Available in a wide range of different styles, including plush and twist, cut style carpets are incredibly versatile. Whether you are looking for a velvet style carpet or a textured finish, there is a cut pile carpet for you.

Plush Cut Pile

If you are searching for a luxurious carpet, then a plush style cut pile carpet is perfect for you. Plush cut pile has a soft, velvet like appearance and texture, creating a very lavish and beautiful style. Cut pile plush carpets are a great choice for bedrooms and formal rooms due to the luxurious finish, however, due to the soft, plush nature of the carpet, the carpet can display footprints and vacuuming strokes.

Cut Pile Twist

Twist cut pile style carpets have a more textured appearance created by the twist in the carpet. More sturdy than plush cut pile carpets, twist cut pile is ideal for areas of the home with high foot traffic such as your living room, hall or staircase. The textured finish also means that footprints and the vacuum leave less of an imprint on the carpet. Check out our last post to find out more about twist pile carpets.


Frieze cut pile carpet has an incredibly luxurious feel with a more informal, shaggy appearance. The long, deep cut piles lie in different directions creating a beautiful, textured appearance. Available in a wide range of pile lengths, Frieze carpets are incredibly durable, and are a great addition to any room. Carpets with a longer pile are known as “Shag Piles”.

Over the years I have bought carpets from a few different places but always felt I was dealing with foot in the door salesmen. I didn't feel like that in Joe Walkers showroom. If anything I felt they were pushing me away from the more expensive. The end result was a carpet that they claimed would be easily cleaned. I didn't really believe it would be that easy but went for it anyway. The carpet is a dream. We have a beige carpet that has had dried in dog puke, cranberries, Coke and blood. All I did was sprayed it with water and dabbed it with kitchen towel and it was spotless. It was even bone dry. The fitters did a cracking job. They said the whole house including wood flooring was 2 days work. Done in a day and the fitting team helped move the larger items of furniture about. Don't waste time going anywhere else. These guys are so focused on doing the job right.
