The best type of carpet for your home depends on what room it is going in and how much footfall it gets. Shag pile and deep pile carpets are best for low traffic living rooms and bedrooms. Where you want a softer feel underfoot. Dense, low pile carpets are best suited for low traffic areas. A quick test you can do with your free carpet samples is to press your thumb into it. The faster the pile bounces back, the more hardwearing the carpet should be.
Darker colours such as brown, black and dark grey carpets are best for high traffic areas as they do not show dirt as much. While beige and light grey carpets are more suited to low traffic rooms. The majority of carpets are made from Polypropylene. This makes them hardwearing, stain-resistant and bleach cleanable.
