Twist pile carpet

These are undoubtedly the most popular style of carpet in the UK at present and Direct Carpet Co have a massive choice of “twists”. Twist pile carpet is usually manufactured from 80% wool and 20% synthetic or 100% synthetic. Which is right for you? It depends on your budget.

The best twist pile carpet is made from 80% British or New Zealand Wool and 20% Nylon. The most popular type of twist is manufactured from 100% polypropylene.

  • Huge choice of styles and colours to browse in our showroom
  • Available as Polypropylene or 80/20 wool mix
  • Good choice for households with pets
Twist Pile Carpet
Berber carpets

The term Berber is derived from the Berber Tribe, the indigenous people of North Africa. In carpet terms it has come to mean natural coloured carpets usually with flecks of dark or light colour within it. They are usually made from a loop pile construction and can be made from either natural or synthetic fibres. In line with other styles of carpet, Berbers will differ greatly in both price and quality. Again, Direct Carpet Co are able to advise you on your options.

  • Natural colour with flecks
  • Normally loop pile construction
  • Available as Polypropylene or 80/20 wool mix

Axminster carpets

If you had to think of a word associated with carpet you’d probably think of Axminster! Axminster is both the name of the carpet manufacturer and the method of production. It means that the pile of the carpet is woven through the backing, unlike modern tufted carpets where the pile is bonded to the backing. Axminster carpets are usually patterned and manufactured from 80% wool and 20% nylon. They represent the top end of carpet manufacturing in the UK. Direct Carpet Co have a huge selection of Axminsters from many manufacturers.

  • Carpet pile woven through backing
  • Normally patterned
  • Available as Polypropylene or 80/20 wool mix
Axminster Carpet Type
Velvet carpets

Velvet carpet uses traditional carpet-making methods with a modern, short, dense, uniform cut pile. This results in a fine but compact feeling underfoot. Because of this short cut pile and fine yarn, velvet carpet is best laid in areas with low footfall, such guest rooms or occasional spaces within the home. Traditionally, velvet carpets were made using high grade sheep wool, however varieties are now available that take advantage of the properties of synthetic materials to increase the life of the carpet whilst making it more affordable.

  • Dense compact feel underfoot
  • Suitable for low footfall areas
  • Available in wool, or more affordable synthetic options

My mum decided she would like new carpets in the flat she has recently moved to, so we contacted you. You remembered the type of carpet mum had chosen at her previous house and you brought pattern books to reflect the quality and style you thought she would like.  You told us exactly when you were coming to lay the carpets, and came the day before to adjust doors so that they would open over the new depth of pile. You fitted the carpets with the minimum of disruption and fuss, moving the furniture where necessary and putting everything back just where it had come from.  You certainly excel in customer service and we would gladly recommend you to anyone needing your sort of expertise.

H.S & H.C

Thanks for great and friendly service. Upgraded underlay is great.

Personal, friendly service and a decent price - couldn’t fault them. Went out of their way to help me, even though I only had a small job (a couple of square metres on a narrowboat). Very happy to have found this family business, especially in their centenary year. Thanks again!
Recently had my second carpet supplied and fitted by Direct Carpet Co. I would highly recommend this place. Excellent service from start to finish. Had a runner made with some left over carpet which is absolutely perfect. One of the things I love is their high standard of customer service besides the quality of product and workmanship. A rare find thesedays.
Response from the owner: Many thanks for your kind feedback. You have been a pleasure to deal with. I am glad you're happy, Kyle
Had some carpets made for our motorhome from templates we provided. Perfect fit and whipped. Look better than brand new ones out of the factory!Today had sitting room carpet fitted. Great, very pleased with it and the fitter, Wayne Smith, has done a great job too. Left information pack about after care, including stating if any spare carpet left over, the first one can be made in to a mat free of charge! Certainly recommend this company, who knows, may be slightly more expensive than the big multinationals, but would you get such a quick delivery and fitting service....doubt it! Thanks Kyle and team.
Response from the owner: I’m glad you’re happy but I have to assure you. We are far cheaper than multinationals. I often tell people not to tell me their quotes. Just so I can surprise them with how good ours is. Thanks again, Kyle
Absolutely fantastic service here. Kyle has loads of patience and really helpful when I was making a carpet choice. Fitters were quick and efficient. Also needed 2 doors trimming after fitting which Kyle did perfectly. I couldn't be happier and will definitely use again.
Response from the owner: I am glad we could assist and I am happy you’re happy 😊 Many thanks, Kyle
Very good service and price. Carpeted our son's bedroom and we couldn't be happier. Really nice carpet and very professional every time they came out including the room measuring and door shortening. Will definitely use them again for our next carpet.
Response from the owner: Many many thanks for your kind feedback. Pleasure to deal with.Enjoy, Kyle
I ordered a stair runner and landing carpet from Direct Carpet Co and it's beautiful! Excellent service and workmanship throughout. Honestly can't fault them, they kept me updated and we're very helpful and accommodating and they made sure the end result was good quality. Would definitely recommend these guys if you're looking for a good quality stair runner.
Response from the owner: Many many thanks for the very kind review.It was a pleasure to have worked for you.The photos look amazing, really like the bottom step. Very practical.Thanks again, Kyle
Hall, staircase and upper landing carpeted for second time in twenty years at this address. Used Direct Carpet Co, Brighouse for the fourty years we have lived in our five HD6 homes'. Once again excellent before and after service this time by the fairly new proprietors Kyle and Dan. Highly recommended.
Response from the owner: Absolutely fantastic feedback. Thank you! I’m glad we could provide the same (if not better) service you’re used to.Remember if you have any off cuts, bring them in. We’ll be glad to make some rugs/mats.Thanks again, Kyle
Hall, staircase and landing carpet replaced after continuing to use Direct Carpets, Brighouse whenever needed. As always great quality and service delivered with courtesy and efficiency. A local firm which is a pleasure to deal with.
