Choosing a carpet for your home is not as straight-forward as it seems. Not only do you have to think about the colour and design, but you are also going to need to think about the carpet style that you would like to go for. What many people don’t realise is just how many different carpet styles there are to choose from. With this in mind, we have compiled a list of some of the most popular carpet styles to help you choose the best option for your home.


1. Twist Style

The twist style carpet is probably one of the most popular options at the moment and has been for a long time. There are a number of reasons for this, but one of the big factors is the level of comfort that it offers. If you have children in the home, then the twisted fibres of this carpet style will offer you durability, which is something that you will definitely need.

2. Saxony Style

If you’re looking for a carpet that’s going to provide ultimate comfort, then the saxony style is certainly worth looking into. This type of carpet has a very deep pile, meaning that it feels springy, incredibly soft and will last you a very long time. A carpet like this is best suited to the bedroom where it won’t be worn down too quickly.
