What carpet is the right choice for you?

When selecting the perfect carpet for your home. There’s many different types of carpets to choose from and many that will meet your criteria.

First choose the look you are after, then compare the fibres to see which one will best suit your home style, preferred features and budget.

Carpet Types


This synthetic is a good choice if you’re on a budget, as it’s generally cheap. It feels soft to the touch and is stain resistant.


Popular because it looks and feels most like wool, polyester is usually used as part of a blend with real wool. Like other synthetics, its stain resistance is a major benefit.


Nylon, also known as polyamide, is the most durable of the synthetic fibres. It can stretch without losing its shape


Wool carpets are natural, durable and provide good heat and sound insulation. They can also absorb and release moisture in the room, controlling humidity levels.

Sisal, Jute, Seagrass & Coir

Plant-based carpet materials are growing in popularity, thanks to their stylish and contemporary appearance.
