Regarded as the most popular style, twist pile carpet comes in many styles, colours and textures. At Flooring UK, we sell a variety of twist carpets from cheap and cheerful to quality, durable and hard wearing.
We are often asked what is the best carpet for stairs, living rooms, bedrooms etc. basically what is the best carpet throughout the house to use and our answer is always twist pile. The reason we say this, is because what you get with a good quality twist pile carpet, is that it keeps its appearance, is easier to clean and feels better underfoot to name a few reasons. It is also a style that never dates and is often classified as a "normal carpet."
The Viceroy collection, Sensuous saxony, boston saxony are all good versions of this style of carpet. We are finding in particular grey carpet is the fastest and most popular shade at the moment. A lot of this is in part due to the neutral shades you can get with grey and that it can be paired with many other shades. Grey is the new beige.
What should you look for when you are choosing a new carpet? Always make sure you consider your lifestyle, durability, practical-ness, colour, style and budget. We recommend always choosing at least a carpet that is 2 ply yarn, this makes it more durable. Always ensure the colour is practical to your lifestyle, avoid going for plain, pale colours if you have a busy home with children and pets. We recommend always buy the best carpet you can afford and the period you expect it to last, do not expect a carpet to last 10 years if you are paying between £4-6m2. For a good quality twist pile carpet, expect to pay anything between £12-£20. At Flooring UK, we buy direct from the manufacturers and sell it direct to the public at trade prices, so you can guarantee, you will be paying less for quality compared to most retail carpet stores.
