It is a very personal space and you can do what you want here the choice is yours! In terms of wear, it is the room that will take the least.

Lounge or Living Room

The Living Room, as the name suggests, is often the ‘hub’ of the household so, here again, a hard-wearing carpet is needed.

Dining Room

The choice is entirely yours when it comes to this room – plain, patterned or loop pile. They will all look attractive.

Hall, Stairs & Landing

The Hallway is the first thing people see of our home.  This area takes a lot of wear and tear so your carpet needs to be durable & hard wearing.  Combining a stripe on the stairs with a contemporary plain in the hall is a clever and practical way to add interest to a functional area.

There are a variety of styles and surface texture options available, all of which affect the appearance, feel, and importantly, the performance of your carpet. By and large, the more luxurious the surface, the more care it will need. The shorter pile usually wears better than long pile carpet but is not as luxurious. It all comes down to personal taste and room usage.

The most common styles are:

Twist Pile

Twist pile carpets are the most popular style in the UK. The short pile consists of tightly twisted heat-set yarn, providing a hard-wearing and practical carpet.
