Types of carpet
Each type of carpet you consider will have a different kind of ‘barefoot feeling’. This can be improved further by the thickness of the underlay and the accessories you use. Twist carpets are durable and give a comfy and spring like feeling. Saxony carpets will feel deep, and luxurious and offer great underfoot comfort. Loop carpets can give you a flat smooth surface and can be resilient.
Twist pile carpet
Twist pile carpets are incredibly durable and are perfect for high-traffic areas like living rooms, hallways, and stairs. The carpet is made by tightly twisting the yarn. The short, dense pile of a twist carpet provides a firm 'barefoot feeling'. The fibres in a twist pile carpet are coarser and offer a relaxed look and the tufted ends add softness. With the benefit of densely packed fibres, the carpet is less prone to flatness and carpet lines won't be visible after vacuuming or when walked on. It's also very easy to maintain.

If you're looking for a plush, sinking feeling under your toes, then a saxony carpet is the one for you. Saxony carpets offer unrivaled softness, the longer tufts of the yarn used to make up the deep pile and are loosely twisted at the base, the yarn is then cut at the top and separated. Available in a variety of finishes, including everything from smooth and opulent velvet to a rugged look.
If you're looking for a carpet to produce the popular vacuuming lines, then a saxony carpet is the one for you as the yarn reflects the light at different angles. Saxony carpets can be used anywhere in your home, however, due to the pile depth and softness they are more suited to living rooms and bedrooms as they add that extra bit of luxury.
Loop pile carpet
Loop pile carpets are made from natural fibres like wool or synthetic ones like polypropylene - some styles are woven from a mixture of both natural and synthetic fibres. Synthetic fibres are more hard-wearing than natural fibres and overall, loop pile carpets offer great value for money, durability and performance.
Loop pile carpets are firm and so, the pile bounces back meaning that no track marks are left when you vacuum. The looped structure also means that spillages will sit on top, leaving enough time for you to clean up before it soaks into your carpet fibres.
If you're looking for low-maintenance luxury, then a velvet carpet may be the right choice for you. Velvet carpets offer the opulence of more luxurious carpets but are more durable due to the short, dense pile. Velvet carpets combine the traditional carpet making methods with a more modern, uniform cut pile.
