Which Type Of Carpet Should You Choose?

 In Domestic

Choosing the right carpet for your home is an important step to creating the perfect living space for you and your family.

Here we will run through the important questions you need to ask before choosing your carpet.


Carpets can range from £5 per square metre, to over £100 per square metre. It all depends on the fabric, design and quality.

You need to set aside a certain budget you’re willing to pay for your carpet, considering factors such as how long you want it to last and how used it will be.

Foot Traffic

Certain areas of the home are high traffic areas, more so than others, such as the hallway and kitchen.

Before choosing a carpet material, bear in mind how many people will be walking over it, and how often. Different carpet fabrics will have different durabilities.

If you have pets, then take this into consideration too, as looped carpets can snag more easily.

Look and Feel

The way carpets are made will affect the way they feel underfoot, and also the way they look.

The closer the knitted fibres are, the denser and more durable the carpet is. This means it’ll be harder underfoot than ones that have looser fibres.

Types of Carpet

There are different types of carpet, from saxony to twist, from loop to velvet.

All of these have different styles and looks, such as saxony having a soft, deep, cut pile and are very popular for bedrooms. Twist carpets are hard wearing and good at hiding dirt. Loop carpets are also durable, but not ideal for pet owners. Velvet carpets are soft underfoot making them great for bedrooms or living rooms.

Different Carpet Materials

Polyester: This is a popular choice amongst homeowners, as it’s stain-resistant and feels most like wool (without the price tag).

Nylon: This is the most durable synthetic fibre, and can be stretched without losing it’s form, making it perfect for rooms where furniture is moved around a lot.

Wool: Although it is more expensive, wool carpets are natural, durable and offer heat and sound insulation. However, it is prone to colours fading over time, and they’re popular with carpet moths.
