Here we’ve run through the different styles of carpet there are, each of which is suited to a different purpose.
TWIST – Our carpet suppliers stock a range of twist carpets, which are made from tightly twisted yarn set into a pile. They have a slightly textured, springy feel and deal with foot traffic well, being a durable form of carpet. Being low-maintenance and long-lasting, we recommend twist carpets for busy households and office spaces in Buckinghamshire and London.
SAXONY – These carpets are thick, deep and shaggy. They’re warm and feel amazing under bare foot. Saxon carpets are elegant, and our carpet suppliers find they are especially sought after for Buckinghamshire and London clients’ bedrooms.
PATTERNED – Much as their name would suggest, patterned carpets come in all sorts of interesting patterns. From bold parallel lines, to leftfield floral patterns. Our carpet suppliers recommend patterned carpets to London and Buckinghamshire homeowners going for something a little different in their interior design. Match a patterned carpet to the rest of a room and you can create an incredibly striking and unique space.
LOOP PILE – Made from uncut yarn loops, either textured or flat-topped, loop pile carpets are a bit more rough-and-ready than twist or Saxony carpets. They’re useful in Buckinghamshire and London properties regularly bombarded by heavy levels of foot traffic. The most durable of all the aforementioned carpet types, a good loop pile carpet will last a very long time. However, they’re generally perceived to be the least comfortable under bare foot.
