If you can't make it into store, we offer a shop at home service. We can come out to your house at a time to suit you and we can bring as many carpet samples out as you need so you can have the luxury of seeing it in your own situation. You can even order the carpet from home and get it fitted without having to leave your front room.

Although it can seem like there are endless carpets to choose from, there are some fundamental similarities/differences that make the process of choosing the right carpet for your home far easier than you may at first have thought.

There are basically only 5 types of carpet, that come in different materials (generally wool, polypropylene or a combination of both), felt or action backing, and various colours and patterns.

The 5 types of carpet are: Berber/Loop Pile, Cut Pile/Twist, Velvet Pile/Velour, Saxony, Shag Pile.  As each of the different types of carpet give their own distinctive look and feel to a room, and some are more naturally suited to say a heavy use area such as a hall way, this is the perfect place to start narrowing down your carpet choice.

The Floor Depot guide to carpet types is as follows:

Loop Pile carpets

 Loop Pile/Berber Carpet

These carpets give a distinctive texture to your floor. The nature of the loop means that this carpet should bounce back and retain its looks.

A small loop in a synthetic pile can make for a very hard wearing carpet, great for heavy trafic areas such as stairs, and a wool loop can create a wonderful feature in room.

For homes with pets it is worth noting that small claws can catch loops and cause damage to your floor – you may wish to consider a Twist Carpet (also known as Cut Pile).

Cut Pile Twist Carpets

Twist/Cut Pile Carpet

Twist Carpets are versatile and come in a range of colours and patterns.  They can be easy to clean, particularly when made from man made fibres, and they wear well.

A twist carpet’s short pile makes it ideal for heavy traffic areas such as hallways and stairs.

If you are looking for smooth and even look to your floor then a twist carpet would be the perfect choice, with a twist available for all budgets and a colour/neutral/patterned or flecked design to suit all tastes.

Saxony carpets

Saxony Carpet

Saxony Carpet has a longer pile than a Twist Carpet. This means that a Saxony carpet is very soft underfoot and gives a luxurious look and feel to a room.

Saxony carpets are available in a variety of different shades and colours.

Perfect for bedrooms and living rooms.

Shag Pile carpets

Shag Pile Carpet

Shag Pile Carpet has a very long pile and a distinctive appearance as a result.

Best suited to bedrooms and living rooms.
