Carpet Buying Guide



Neutral Carpets: These will go well with any colour scheme and existing décor, so make a quick and simple carpet solution.

Dark or Light Carpets? Opting for lighter colours can make a room feel brighter and more spacious, so would be recommended in particular for small rooms or those lacking in natural light. Equally, a darker carpet can create a ambient and warming feel, so this will depend on the look and feel you are aiming to achieve.

Colourful & Vibrant Carpets? Choose bright, bold and warm colours to create a more energising room.

Cool & Calm Carpets: Cool & light tones provide a sense of calm and are perfect for bedrooms and other areas of relaxation. These types of carpets needn’t be plain, as we also have an excellent choice of pattern and striped carpets in neutral calming colours.


Patterned Carpets: Available in a choice of contemporary colours and striking designs, these carpets are all about making a statement in your home, be it subtle or prominent.

Striped Carpets: Striped carpets can easily add personality or an inject of colour to a room, stairs or hallway. They can remain understated or create impact, depending on preference, which is simply done by selecting either colour or the thickness of the stripe itself. We even have a unique range of textured carpets which are almost self-striped!

Plain Carpets: Our ranges help to achieve numerous looks through texture and colour, so plain carpet needn’t be thought of as boring. Choose from velvets and loops to twists and deep pile luxury, with neutral heritage colours through to the striking and bold - the choice is endless.

Practicality: Darker hues and patterned carpets hide stains and marks more than solid shades or lighter carpets. You need to consider the footfall of the room in mind and whether it is being placed in a home with small children and pets.
