Warmth and comfort

Carpet is the warmest of all the floorcoverings. It acts as a cushion under your feet that, coupled with a good quality underlay, can bring a soft and cosy feel to any area of your home. The design of carpets and underlays means they are a fantastic insulator, helping reduce heat loss, in turn reducing your energy bills and saving you money.

Array of designs and colours

Manufacturers have never offered such an extensive choice of carpet designs as they do today, twist, loop, cut piles are to name but a few. Not only do they offer different designs but they come in endless colours, whether you are looking for a neutral beige or a bright red, there is sure to be something that suits you.


Carpets provide a non-slip surface, reducing the risk of slips and falls, particularly for children, elderly individuals, or anyone with mobility concerns. It offers a soft and cushioned surface that can help to minimize injuries in case of accidents, making it a safer option for homes with kids or elderly residents.


Carpets FAQ

You need to measure the longest and widest points of your room, round up to the nearest 5cm and add on 10cm to both measurements to allow for tolerance. Make sure to take into consideration any doorways, alcoves or drop backs. 

Cut or twist pile carpets are best for pets as they are constructed with individual fibres so if your pet does pull at them you wont notice a lone thread gone missing, where as a loop pile is constructed with the thread running the entire length or width of the carpet, so if one of these threads does get pulled or caught it can pull in to your carpet.

We recommend a hard wearing, thinner (tight pile) carpet for your stairs. This is because the stairs have the most foot traffic so the carpet needs to be durable and able to preserve it's appearance. If a thick, soft carpet is selected, over time the carpet will flatten where you walk but still have its original appearance where you don't, making it like like two different carpets. 

Going for a stain-resistant, bleach cleanable, polypropylene carpet is usually the best choice if you have young children as if you do have any spillages or get any dirt on your carpet they are easier to clean than a wool carpet. 

Having a tighter pile, rather than a thicker pile, is advisable as these are more hard wearing and preserve their appearance for longer. If you have children and/or a family your carpet is prone to high traffic so a tighter pile will absorb this a lot better.

Polypropylene carpets are best for spillages and stains. They are available as stain and bleach resistant so if you do have any accidents they are easier to clean than a wool carpet.

99% of carpets are suitable for bedrooms. 

As bedrooms tend to be areas of warmth and comfort a lot of people go for a thick, saxony carpet as they feel luxurious under foot and bring a cosy feeling to the room. 

Wool and loop pile carpets are suitable for bedrooms but are not as popular a choice as they are not as nice a feel when walking on.

Choosing which underlay is best is all up to your unique situation.

If you are looking for a hard wearing underlay for areas of high traffic then a rubber option is best. The rubber underlay is constructed from recycled tyres, in a dense structure, so it can withstand high impact and provide excellent noise insulation. 

If you are looking for a soft and warm option then a PU (Polyurethane) foam underlay is most suitable. It is made from recycled materials and available in three different thicknesses, 8, 10 and 12mm. The foam structure makes it a great choice for bedrooms and living rooms as it provides a luxurious feeling under foot.
