There is something a little decadent about sinking your bare feet into luxuriously soft carpet. Due to its durability, comfort and style, beautiful wool or synthetic carpet has stood the test of time and remains a popular flooring product in many Australian homes to this day. There are different types of fibres, colours, prices and pile types to decide on when choosing a carpet. Some fibres and piles are even blended, so you can find a wool/synthetic blend carpet and a cut and loop pile blended carpet. More commonly though, the pile construction of your carpet will either be loop, plush or twist and each type has many benefits, so it is a matter of choosing which best suits your home environment, lifestyle and budget.
