Wool Twist Carpets - The most popular choice for capets in your home.

Arrow wool twist carpets

A twist pile carpet is made from yarn that has been tightly twisted and set to form a short close pile carpet with a slightly textured hardwearing surface. Twist pile carpets are produced in both plain and heather colours. Heathers are created using a combination of complimentary coloured fibres to obtain a natural tonal effect. The tight construction of a twist pile carpet gives superior resistance to flattening, and the ability to bounce back makes it ideal in heavy traffic areas.

Deep Pile Luxury Carpets - Add a touch of luxury to your home

Deep pile carpets are becoming very popular, adding not just style, but also add sheer luxury to your home. Many are available in 4 metre and 5 metre widths and feel fantastic and sumptuous when fitted on a good quality underlay.

Very deep pile carpets can be extremely expensive when made from wool, so stain resistant synthetic fibres are the most popular choice for these carpets.

Stain Resistant Carpet - Worry free comfort

One of the most affordable and durable types of carpets available are made from a fibre called polypropylene. Polypropylene fibre is extremely stain resistant, abrasion resistant, and relatively inexpensive, making it a practical option for young families or where staining may be a problem. Polypropylene differs from other fibres in that the colour is added to the yarn at the time of making the yarn and not dyed. By using this process it means colour is 'locked in' to the yarn thus providing a carpet that is not only highly resistant to stains, but also fade resistant even in direct sunlight. Carpets made from polypropylene are also antistatic and bleach cleanable.

Polypropylene carpets typically offer significant stain warranties and homes with family or pet's can benefit from the reassurance that stain resistant carpets offer.

Vinyl Flooring - For appearance and supreme practicality

Rugs are the quickest way of giving your room a new look, a rug being a stylish way to make a statement in your home. If you have a wood or laminate floor then a rug offers an oasis of comfort, yet provides a focal point for the decor.

With a huge choice of colours and designs, rugs can be contemporary, traditional, classical or designer, from natural weaves, woven wiltons to outrageous deep pile luxury, and all at very affordable prices.

A number of fibre options are available including:

  • WOOL: with the greatest depth of colour.
  • Polypropylene: with exceptional stain resistance.
  • Acrylic Fibre: a good quality acrylic yarn will give a rug years of wear, it is also stain resistant, soft to touch and can offer more vibrant colours than wool.
  • Viscose Fibre (Art Silk): This is a fibre that is used to produce rugs that have a silky sheen, it is normally used in Indian and Chinese shaggy textures and is used as highlight colour in many modern designs.
  • Machine Made Rugs: Most rugs are produced on High Tech Wilton face to face looms using Polypropylene, wool or viscose fibres.
  • Hand made Rugs: are available as hand knotted or hand tufted rug. A hand tufted rug is quicker to produce therefore are available at lower cost than their hand knotted counterparts. Generally, whether rugs are hand woven or hand tufted, the more complex designs are the most expensive.
