A cut pile made from twisted fibres, and is the most commonly-used style of tufted carpet. The twisted fibres have a coarse finish that creates a textured surface to the carpet. Twist carpet comes in two styles, either plain or heathered (slightly mottled). Heathered carpet is perfect for busier areas in your home as marks are less likely to show. It’s a hard wearing carpet, and suitable for most areas in your home, including halls, stairs, landings and main room.
Softer and smoother than a cut pile. It’s magnificent throughout the home, or a luxury for the bedroom. A velvet carpet will look great in all rooms, but particularly in formal rooms and bedrooms as it creates an effect that looks rich and indulgent. Patterned carpet is hardwearing and traditionally woven, so is good at retaining its appearance. It will usually have a smooth velvet finish. A stripe design looks great in hallways and on stairs.
Made from uncut loops of yarn, this type of carpet is great for busy rooms as the weave bounces back really easily. We don’t recommend loop pile carpet though if you have pets, as the loops can get pulled by their claws.
