Best carpet for each room 

When it comes to picking the perfect carpet, you’ll have to factor in which room you’re looking to revamp, as each room has a different use. Whether you’re on a budget or looking to splurge, let’s take a look at the best carpet types for all-around your home. 

Best carpet for stairs

Generally, the best carpets for stairs are low pile carpets such as a twist pile as these are better built to withstand busy traffic areas. Plus they tend to be more stable underfoot and have little to no tracking so your footprints won’t show. Sporting a lovely smooth surface, twist piles are certainly a practical choice.

Mauritius Classic

Our saver option for stair carpets is our Mauritius Classic. It comes complete with a lifetime stain guarantee and 10 year wear warranty making it an ideal option for this bustling area of your home.

Pks1970 gave the Mauritius Classic carpet a 5 star rating. They said: 

“Love the colour and quality, looks modern and feels luxurious!”

High Society

Looking to splurge a bit on your stair carpet? Then High Society may be the one for you. This tufted carpet is action backed for enhanced comfort underfoot, so whether you tend to wear slippers indoors or prefer being barefoot, you’ll enjoy plushness all year round. 




Best carpet for the hallway

As hallways are typically high traffic areas of your home with people running in and out, a hard-wearing carpet is going to be the best option to withstand the daily footfall. 

A great saver option is our Living Kasbah carpet that can stand up to daily wear and tear with a hard-wearing, low maintenance nature it’s the perfect solution for your stairway. 

If you’re looking for something a little more premium, we’d recommend either our Signature Westminster or Signature Marble Arch carpets. Our Signature carpet collection is a long-lasting luxury range that’s bursting with beneficial properties. From its sumptuously soft feel to its incredible quality composition. 

Anonymous gave the Signature Westminster carpet a 5 star rating. They said: “Amazing luxurious feel to it and has not flattened or matted yet so very happy for that!

Why not try it for yourself? We’re sure you’ll love it too.  

Best carpet for the bedroom

Your bedroom is a place of sanctuary and where you retreat at the end of a long day. This is why a plush and sumptuously soft carpet springs to mind as the ultimate in luxury. 

We highly recommend our Kensington carpet which allows you to invite a warm and welcoming shade into your bedroom. With 14 fabulous colour options to choose from, including versatile neutrals, this bleach cleanable carpet gives you the flexibility to make your room your own.

For extra luxury, our SEDNA Oceanus carpet ticks all the boxes. With bounce-back excellence, this carpet is specially crafted from economically regenerated nylon. By investing in this beautiful carpet you can be doing your part to help save sea life, as the yarn used is made from abandoned fishing nets collected from the bottom of the sea, which is then transformed into a silky soft, durable carpet. 

Moreover, SEDNA® carpet has an ECO FusionBac textile back, made from 100% recycled PET plastic bottles.




Best carpet for the living room

Our living rooms serve many purposes – it’s the room we go to relax, entertain, watch television and much more. For those reasons, it’s likely to be one of the busiest rooms in your home. This is why a sturdy, soft and stylish carpet is essential.

Best carpet for general use in the home

When it comes to choosing a carpet for our home, there are a handful of factors to consider. Such as whether you need a pet-friendly floor. If this is the case then stay away from loop pile carpets, as their claws can get caught up in the looped fibres and you won’t want to lay this carpet anywhere they may tread. It’s also worth considering colour and pile type as different variations work better for different purposed rooms.  

Our Stainfree Dorchester carpet is certainly a strong contender for use all-around your home.

As the name suggests, this option is definitely a great match for a busy household as you won’t have to worry about any unwanted spills and stains. 

Upgrade your existing carpet with Living Garda. Made from twisted yarns, the long pile offers an opulent feeling underfoot so you can enjoy comfort throughout your home.

When it comes to looking for the best carpet for use around the home, we offer plenty of options.
