There’s something wonderfully luxurious about the feel of carpet underfoot, and nothing adds comfort and visual warmth like a carpet. From a design perspective, carpet forms an excellent base layer to any room, and because it absorbs sound and reduces the impact of noise, it’s ideal for zoning areas in large open plan spaces.
Natural fibre or synthetic?
With a choice of natural fibres or vibrant, stain resistant synthetics, P P OR Solution dyed, carpet is a perfect flooring solution for any home décor and lifestyle. Ranging from foam backed budget carpets to top of the range merino wool or practically indestructible commercial carpet, there’s a carpet to suit every taste and budget and application at Perth carpet shop the Rugs and Flooring Gallery.
Woven or tufted?
Carpets come in two main types, either woven or tufted. As the name suggests, woven carpets are manufactured in a traditional method on a loom, which creates a premium finish.
This style of carpet is made with the patterns and colours woven into the fabric of the carpet rather than using a printed method. Generally considered to be a higher quality product than its tufted cousin, it’s made either in pure wool or a blend of wool and man made fibres, normally 80% wool, 20% synthetic.
Choose from the Axminster style, which tend to be patterned, or a Wilton, which are more likely to be plain or have cut and loop construction.
Currently the most popular type of carpet, tufted carpets are manufactured by looping yarn into a backing fabric and fixing it with latex or hessian. Cut pile, Berber or plush, these carpets are great value for money. Tufted carpets span a range of qualities and are made using pure wool, wool and man-made fibre blends, or synthetic yarns.
