    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.

    V&A Carpets have been fantastic from start to finish, from choosing carpets to fitting. We had a large renovation project and we had to move fitting dates several times and added carpets to our order, and generally moved things around, Alex and Vicky were great about all this and really helpful and unflappable with all my last minute changes and our house now looks stunning definitely 5🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

    Can’t recommend highly enough. Provided a really helpful service with choosing the flooring and received samples within a couple of days. Kept in contact throughout the process and couldn’t do enough to help. Fitters were brilliant, really good guys and finished in half a day. Went above and beyond to help. I’ll be using V&A again without doubt.

    I have had 3 carpet quotes recently and none compared to V & A Carpets. Their knowledge, sound advice and professionalism shone through. They arrived on time with a wide range of samples including underlay. They advised on a type of carpet to have by my front door to further protect my carpet. The carpet samples themselves were of a higher quality than the other 2 companies. 5 star service.

    We had our entire house carpeted by V&A Carpets as well as Luxury Vinyl Tiles for our hallway and kitchen/Utility. The quality of the carper and LVT is absolutely fantastic. With the kids running round all the time we are really happy with the investment. We returned to V&A for our front door and rear Mats which were fantastic also. Would definitely recommend V@A, a great local business.

    Alex has been excellent in providing advice on the right flooring and then helping me find matches to bring ideas to life in his extensive showroom. Personable and helpful, he’s been very helpful with securing stock and working dates around my completion date to get everything sorted pre Christmas. In a challenging time for all, this has been one of my easiest tasks for my new house. Very grateful. Would recommend as far better than chain stores who’ve no interest in the more personal elements of what you need.

    Bedroom Carpets

    When looking for a bedroom carpet it is vital to know first what you are looking to get from the carpet first. Would you like it to last for a lengthy period or time and look better for longer, or would you like to it be comfortable underfoot?

    Most bedrooms carpets would be soft and fluffy to give your feet that happy feeling when getting out of bed in the morning. A thick and long piled carpet will bring some happiness to your feet and create that same feeling to your subconscience when you first step out of bed in the morning. These tend to have higher tog rating as well, which relate the insulation value it brings to your room. The higher the tog rating, the less cold from the sub floor underneath makes it into the room . The other option would be to have a dense & short piled carpet. This style of carpet wears, or looks better for longer. It’s not as soft & comfortable but as the yarn or pile is shorter, they flatten less and look better or newer for longer. Depending on the size of your room, we tend to have 3-4 steps and you are onto the bed. This allows a dense short yarn carpet to look better for a good few years. In conclusion, The simple first question will be, “are you looking for comfort, or durablility”?

    As a general rule of thumb comfort will normallly bring in the thinking man made carpets, and durability will be a wool option. This can vary dependant on your preference and there are many to choose from that can change this rule. To find out what carpet suits you best, speak to on of our advisers to help you along your journey of finding your perfect carpet.

    Sitting Room Carpets or Lounge Carpets

    When looking for a sitting room carpet, as always, the crucial elements are durability or feel? This is crucial to get right for a number of reasons. This is normally the main room the family come together in, it is one where we normally look for the most comfort as well as durability as it’s the one most used. Durability can be crucial in some instances as many sitting rooms lead to other rooms or outside, which adds to the traffic in that the carpet will have to take. On the cold winter nights, it is normally the room we all look to get cosy in and keep us warm. 

    That sweet spot of hard wearing, durable carpet as well as a soft feel is one most often asked for, but there will always be the slightest of trade offs here.  The easiest way is the get a really good underlay to keep the soft feel and keep the heat in the room. Then you can lean towards a slightly hard wearing carpet and get the best of both worlds.  There can be a fair few things to take into consideration such as the size of the family, the amount of traffic it will get in certain point of the room and your budget. We recommend speaking to one of our staff who will be best placed to visit your home, and advise you on the best options for your home, and talk you through why we think it will be the best choice. We find that if we ask the right questions the answers will present themselves to you.

    Twist Pile Carpet

    Twist Carpets

    Twist carpets are threads of yarn that have been spun numerous times to keep the spring in the thread of yarn and to keep them bouncing back to their original shape, as the name mentions. But the important things to know are that these are usually the short pile carpets for heavy traffic areas. Twist carpets are normally the carpets preferred in hallways, stairs and landings, and other heavy-traffic areas in the home. As these threads are shorter and normally fairly dense to ensure the pile doesn't fall over or compress as easily, they will look better for longer. A twist carpet is the style of carpet, and they come in Wool & polypropylene (man-made fibre which is bleach cleanable). Wool twist carpets are generally found in an 80/20 form, with 80% being the wool content, and a couple of manufacturers do make 100% wool twist carpets, but they are rare these days. 80/20 Wool mix carpets are still one of the strongest and best-selling carpets in the UK as they are durable and softer than their looped carpet counterpart. To find more of these, visit our carpet shop in Trowbridge and see all that's on offer.

    Saxony Carpets

    Saxony carpets are a deep & luxurious style of carpets. These are also made in a similar manner to twist carpets, but the threads are longer, allowing them to fall over or give way much more than a standard short pile twist carpet. This creates a fantastic feeling underfoot, giving it that luxurious feeling. If you want comfort underfoot when getting out of bed in the morning, or want a lounge carpet you like to sit or lie on, this would be the style of carpet to look at. While some are denser than others, helping them to keep their shape, they won't look as good as a twist carpet in the years to come. These are mainly made out of polypropylene and sometimes mixed with other softer fibres such as polyimide or polyester. The key element to look out for in a Saxony carpet is density. The denser it is, the better it will look for longer. You see footmarks and hoover lines with Saxony carpets, but the less dense the carpet is, the more extreme the effect will be. To find more of these, visit our carpet shop in Trowbridge and see all that's on offer.

    Looped Pile Carpet

    A textured carpet or a looped pile carpet is a favourite in many a home. These are threads that have not only been spun ut are now spun together to make one, very strong thread. These are woven into one another in various styles to create a very strong carpet. A looped pile carpet is generally made from wool, but can be found in some 50/50 mixtures and then a few in a man-made version. The wool version is definitely the most popular. The way they are constructed allows them to look better for longer, and they are woven into each other and no loose bristles to be compressed, they are less affected but high traffic, visually. The downside of a loop is that if you have a pet that lends to play with the carpet or you get something caught on a strand and pull on it, the thread can be pulled out if pulled hard enough. They are also not anywhere near as soft and comfortable as a Saxony and twist pile carpet. They can happen but is extremely rare. Normally avoid them if you have cats, but they are generally a great carpet to have if you wanted something to last. To find more of these, visit our carpet shop in Trowbridge and see all that's on offer.
