  • Your Needs

Before you even start, you need to consider what you want from your carpets. Do you need something that is hard wearing that can keep up with your kids or pets? Are you looking for a carpet that you can easily clean? Or are you looking to bring a touch of luxury to your home? Sit down and figure out what you’re looking for in your new flooring.

  • Carpet Type

There are a few different types of carpets types out there and they all have different properties and uses.

Twist carpets are made from tight twisted fibres that are attached to a backing. The fibres are cut to a specific length and they’re great for use in most room. However, it’s important to be aware that depending on the material use, the carpet can flatten over time.

Loop carpets are when the yarn is formed into multiple coils. The loops can be either the same height or different heights which gives a textured finish. The same height carpet is better for use in high traffic areas.

If you looking for something that is extremely hard wearing then you need a woven carpet. They are created when the pile and backing yarn are sewn together simultaneously without the need for adhesive. They’re often used for commercial environments like hotel lobbies and restaurants.
