What to consider when choosing the type of carpet for your flooring.

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.

I was delighted with the beautiful linen trim they attached onto 2 sisal carpet off cuts - which made 2 gorgeous rugs, bringing pleasure and avoiding landfill! I will use again without a doubt - excellent service too.

Wow! I love my new risers from Direct Carpet Co. From start to finish, it was a smooth transaction. Kyle went above and beyond to make sure that I knew all of my options and help me to get the sisal treads that I wanted.The suggestion of the tiger eye sisal was inspired. And when I asked for the whipping to be done in a particular colour, the answer was 'of course'!Did I mention the super fast delivery?Thanks for everything, Kyle. I'm chuffed to bits with them.
