We bought wools carpets from V & A Carpets for our home and we couldn’t be happier. We had a few quotes from other indépendants and high street retailers, and shouldn’t have bothered. The prices were great, and the quality was even better. The estimator turned up in time, brought out loads of samples and helped us through the whole process and explained everything very clearly gave us great advice. Saving us carpet by incorporating the stairs and saving on wasted carpet. While they are based in Trowbridge they came to see us in Devizes. It was easy to pay and the carpets were down within two weeks. The fitters were also lovely and friendly, while doing a great job and riding up after themselves as they went along. Leaving us with the rooms all ready for us.

I would highly recommend V&A Flooring to anyone looking for excellent quality carpets and excellent customer service. Alex & Vicky were so helpful with our selection and the fact we got to take samples home was brilliant and really helped with matching to our current flooring. Nothing was too much trouble . Thanks again for all your help :)

The choosing and fitting of our new wooden floor was very easy from start to finish. Being able to bring home samples made our decision easier and we are delighted with the finished look. The fitter was very courteous, friendly, knowledgeable and left the room perfectly clean ready for us to move everything back in. However, we felt that communication with the manager/business could have been better. With the announcement of lockdown 2, it would have been nice to receive an courtesy email or call letting us know that the fitting was still going ahead (we had to phone them). Also, we were told the fitter would arrive between 8-9am on Monday morning but would receive an email on the Saturday afternoon confirming this. We never received an email. All in all, we would use them again as we were impressed with the quality of the product and above all, the professionalism of the fitter.

Many thanks to V and A Flooring for a very friendly and professional service. From our first visit to the showroom through to carpet selection, measuring and final fitting, all aspects of the job went very well indeed and ran smoothly. We are delighted with the finished job. We wouldn’t hesitate to use them again and happily recommend their services. Vicky and Alex gave good advice and valued guidance at all times.

Thank you for the advice when we started our search for a carpet for our daughter's bedroom. Shopping with children is always a challenge, and your thoughtfulness and patience helped us immensely. Lots of choice, great samples to take away and try in rooms. Great quality carpets, and competitively priced. Process from ordering to fitting was very straightforward and stress free. Fitters were great, very careful, friendly and did a fab job . We will definitely be in touch again when we carpet the rest of the house!

The Different Types of Carpets


Carpets are a popular flooring option that adds warmth and comfort to any room. They come in various types, each with its own unique features, benefits, and drawbacks. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at the different types of carpets available on the market and their characteristics.

Nylon Carpets. Nylon carpets are the most popular type of carpet due to their durability, resilience, and stain resistance. They come in a variety of styles, colours, and patterns, making them an excellent choice for any decor. They’re also relatively easy to maintain, requiring vacuuming and occasional professional cleaning.

Polyester Carpets. Polyester carpets are another popular option due to their softness and affordability. They’re made from recycled materials, making them an eco-friendly choice. They come in a range of colours and styles and are stain-resistant. However, they’re not as durable as nylon carpets and can be prone to matting and crushing in high-traffic areas.

Olefin Carpets. Olefin carpets are a budget-friendly option that’s durable and stain-resistant. They’re also resistant to moisture and mildew, making them ideal for basements and other damp areas. However, they’re not as soft or luxurious as other types of carpets, and their fibres can be easily crushed, leading to a shorter lifespan.

Wool Carpets. Wool carpets are a luxurious and high-end option that’s naturally durable and stain-resistant. They’re also soft and comfortable underfoot, making them ideal for bedrooms and living rooms. They come in a range of colours and patterns, but they’re more expensive than other types of carpets, and they require professional cleaning to maintain their appearance.

Berber Carpets. Berber carpets are a looped style of carpet that’s durable and stain-resistant. They’re often made from nylon or wool fibres and come in a range of colours and patterns. Berber carpets are ideal for high-traffic areas, such as hallways and family rooms, but their looped fibres can be prone to snags and pulls.

Frieze Carpets. Frieze carpets are a popular choice for modern and contemporary homes. They’re made from tightly twisted fibres that give them a unique and textured appearance. They’re durable and stain-resistant, making them an excellent choice for high-traffic areas. However, their twisted fibres can be difficult to clean and maintain.

Cut & Loop Carpets. Cut and loop carpets are a type of carpet that combines both cut pile and loop pile fibres to create a unique texture and pattern. The cut pile fibres are those that are sheared to create a flat, plush surface, while the loop pile fibres remain uncut, creating a looped texture. The combination of the two types of fibres creates a variety of patterns and designs that can range from subtle to bold. Cut and loop carpets are often used in high-traffic areas, as their unique construction provides durability and resistance to wear and tear. They are available in a wide range of colours and styles, making them a versatile option for many different types of interiors.

Textured carpets. Textured carpets are a type of carpet that features a combination of cut and looped fibres, creating a textured surface that is visually appealing and also helps to hide footprints and vacuum marks. The texture can range from subtle to more pronounced, depending on the construction and density of the carpet.

Textured carpets are often made from nylon or other synthetic fibres, as they offer durability and resistance to stains and wear. They are available in a range of colours and styles, from solid colours to multi-tonal patterns, making them a versatile choice for many different interior design schemes.

One of the benefits of textured carpets is that they can add depth and dimension to a room, creating a cosy and inviting atmosphere. They are also relatively easy to maintain, as the textured surface helps to conceal dirt and debris. Overall, textured carpets are a great choice for those looking to add both style and practicality to their floors.

Polypropylene carpets. Polypropylene carpets, also known as Olefin carpets, are a type of synthetic carpet made from a thermoplastic polymer called polypropylene. These carpets are known for their durability, stain resistance, and affordability.

Polypropylene carpets are often used in high-traffic areas such as offices, schools, and commercial spaces, as they are resistant to wear and tear, and are easy to maintain. They are also resistant to fading, mildew, and moisture, making them a good choice for areas prone to spills or humidity.

Polypropylene carpets are available in a range of colours and styles, including textured, patterned, and looped designs. They can mimic the appearance of other materials such as wool or silk but at a lower cost. While they may not have the same luxurious feel as natural fibre carpets, they are a practical and cost-effective option for many homeowners and businesses.


In conclusion, when choosing a carpet, we believe it’s important to consider your lifestyle, budget, and the level of foot traffic in your home. Each type of carpet has its own unique features and benefits, so be sure to do your research and choose the one that best suits your needs.
