Our Carpet Buying Guide


Welcome to our wonderful 'Carpet Buying Guide'.

At Flooring Direct, we know that finding that carpet with the perfect appearance, out of the wide variety we stock, can be a challenge.  Not to mention the numerous complex properties each of our carpets hold that you will need to consider. This is such an important step that many aren’t aware of, as it will ensure your carpet is not only beautiful, but practical for its purpose too.

Therefore, our flooring experts have created our carpet buying guide to walk you through all things carpet, from style and design to pile type and material. We explore the pile and fibre properties that you do not get taught at school and cover the important stuff such as prices and durability.

So, sit back, learn more and discover your dream #FlooringDirectFit with us.


Choosing Your Carpet by Room



 For the Bedroom

 What is better than getting out of bed and feeling your toes sinking into that luxurious thick carpet? At Flooring Direct, we do not think it can be beaten. 

Furthermore, not only is our carpet incredibly soft underfoot, but also adds a cosy appearance, sending you into an even deeper sleep every night. 

Plus, our carpet is stain-resistant. So, if you like midnight or movie snacks in bed, you can be assured that spillages will not end in disaster. 


 For the Living Room

 The living room, as implied by name, is the household room that brings life and joy to any family. A place to relax in front of the TV with a cup of tea, or to play games with the family, a living room must be practical and beautiful. 

Therefore, the Flooring Direct carpet is the perfect fit for any lounging area. It is soft and warm underfoot, whilst also proving heavy duty enough to withstand heavy foot traffic for a busy home. 

A carpet also exudes a snug and comforting feel, perfect for those who need a family space to relax in. Plus, carpet provides a cushioning in case of a fall- very important for those families with young children.


For the Stairs

 At Flooring Direct, we believe that all flooring should be beautiful in design. However, what many forget are the practicalities a floor must serve beyond its appearance. Stairs should not be slippery for safety reasons. It is due to this necessity that we recommend our customers opt for carpet when renovating their staircase. 

The non-slip properties that carpet offers cannot be matched by any other type of flooring. However, though this is the most important feature, carpet is also soft underfoot, hard wearing, and attractive. It is also the easiest flooring to install on stairs as it can bend around each step and does not reveal creasing in the flooring as vinyl would. 

Although at Flooring Direct we have our own ideas as to where are carpet goes best, your home means your rules! Our carpet can also be used for hallways, dining rooms, landings, kitchens, and bathrooms.
