Carpet Flooring

Types of carpet flooring, for a completely different feel.

If comfort is the most important feature to you, then choosing carpet is a no-brainer. Other than obvious softness and warmth, carpet goes a long way in terms of maintenance, allowing you to do more living than cleaning in your home. Carpet is one of the most flexible floor coverings because you get to choose from a wide range of colours and textures. Here are a few textures to consider when choosing which types of carpet flooring work for your space.

Types of Carpet Flooring - Cut & Loop


Cut and loop carpets offer a combination of various cut and loop fibres at differing levels resulting in a sculptured pattern with several tones of the same colour. These carpets can be stunning in both wall-to-wall and area rug configurations.

Types of Carpet Flooring - Loop


Looped carpet keeps the loops uncut and intact. The loops can be produced in uneven heights for texture or level for durability. Loop carpets are suitable for high-traffic areas of the home. Solid shade loops are often referred to as ‘sisals’ and loops with multi-coloured yarns or coloured flecks are referred to as berbers.

Types of Carpet Flooring - Cut Pile


A cut pile, also known as a plush saxony, refers to any carpet that is made up of evenly cut fibres. Because of its uniform surface, vacuum marks and foot traffic will be visible on these carpets. For this reason, this type of carpet is best suited for formal areas of the home.

Types of Carpet Flooring - Textured Cut Pile


Textured cut pile carpets are known for their casual appeal. Their twisted cut fibres diffuse light so as to mask foot and vacuum marks making this carpet construction a popular choice for family rooms and children’s bedrooms.

Types of Carpet Flooring - Frieze twist


Frieze carpets are made up of varying lengths of highly twisted fibers. The fibers curl in random directions creating terrific texture and dimension. These carpets are virtually trackless and are suitable for most areas of the home including heavy-traffic areas such as stairs and hallways.
