About Carpets

Your step-by-step guide to buying a carpet
Handy hints from the Carpetstore’s secret tricks of the trade

Firstly, a bit of preparation goes a long way to help you know what you want and need when buying a carpet. Pop into the shop to try out the textures and understand the uses for different kinds of materials and weaves. A twist carpet made up of cut pile and twisted fibres helps to create a hardwearing and textured carpet. Add to that a plain or ‘heathered’ style and marks will be harder to spot. The carpet is also less likely to fluff and wear. Then there are loop carpets that have a tight and resilient weave which quite literally bounce back, and so are ideal for hallways where they get a lot of use. Finally, there are velvet carpets that, as the name suggests, have a more luxurious and smoother finish. These are ideal for bedrooms or living rooms where you want to maximise that feeling of comfort and plushness. When you have chosen what you’re after, we can cut you swatches to take home to try out. Getting the right colour is the key. Place the samples in different parts of the room to see how it reacts to light and different shades to help you get an idea of how it may look. We can then pop round to measure up the rooms and give you an accurate estimate of the costs and the time we need to do the job. Once we are done, simply enjoy your sumptuous new carpets.

“People are coming back to the smaller shops because they realise they get a more personal and professional service, which everybody wants. One of our mottos is support the local businesses, not just our own.”


“For stairs we actually custom-cut them to size. We finish the edges with either a binding tape or a whipping in your choice of colours. We make individual bespoke runners for individual staircases.”

Moths. They are a big problem in the area. They love to eat 100 per cent woollen carpets. But we are on to them. Sorry moths, you have got to be beaten. We offer a selection of great carpets that can protect against these little blighters. Sorry moths, we’ve got you beat.
