Here is our guide to finding the best types of carpet for you.


For a smooth, hard wearing carpet, twist carpets are an excellent choice. Twist carpets are ideal for living areas of your home, such as the hall, stairs or living room due to the balance of both comfort and durability. This type of carpet is also available in a wide range of colours to suit your home.


If you are looking for a soft, luxurious carpet, then Saxony carpets are perfect for you. Saxony carpets have an incredibly soft finish which is incredibly indulgent and luxurious underfoot. Saxony carpets are also pretty hard wearing, so are suitable for the likes of bedrooms as well as living areas in your home. Unfortunately, Saxony carpet is not suited to wet areas of the home.

Loop Pile

Loop pile carpets are both practical and comfortable to walk on, making them perfect for any area of your home. Sadly, loop pile carpets are not suited to homes with pets as their claws can get caught in the loops of the fibre which can damage the carpet.


Berber carpets are available in both loop and twist styles in an impressive range of textures and patterns to suit any home. These hard wearing carpets are stain resistant and incredibly hard wearing making them suitable for even the busiest rooms in your home.
