Wear and Tear

An important factor to consider when buying new carpets is the wear and tear it will endure in your home. Do you have children or pets? Is it for the guest bedroom? Maybe you are looking for a bathroom carpet? Wherever your new carpet may be going, it is important that you find the most durable carpet for the job. With this in mind, there are a range of carpet types to choose from when finding the most durable carpet for you. Don’t forget to check out our previous posts for more tips on how to find the best carpet for you!


Twist carpets are very smooth, hard wearing carpets, ideal for the likes of your living room, staircase or hallway. Twist carpets combine comfort with durability, available in a wide range of colours and styles to suit any room in your home.


If you are looking for something a little more luxurious and soft, then Saxony carpets are perfect for you. Saxony carpets are also surprisingly hard wearing, making them ideal for the likes of bedrooms and living areas, however, Saxony carpets are not suited to wet areas of the home, such as the bathroom or kitchen.

Loop Pile

Loop pile carpets are incredibly practical as well as comfortable to walk on. Available in a wide range of colours, loop pile carpets are perfect for bedrooms and living rooms, and some styles can be used throughout hallways and stair cases. Unfortunately, loop pile carpets aren’t so suitable for pets as their claws can catch in the loops of the carpet.


Berber carpets are available in both loop and twist styles, in a range of textures and patterns to suit any home. Berber carpets are stain resistant, hard wearing and can cope in even the busiest of homes, making them ideal for busy family homes and areas of the home with high foot fall.
