Flooring is fundamental to the look and daily use of your home. It’s the stage on which everything happens.
So your floor not only needs to look good. It has to be fit for purpose – in terms of wear, comfort and safety, as well as style.
The options and choices are almost endless. But that’s where TC Matthews comes in. We’ve already refined the selection process for you by picking out the finest floor coverings – carpets, rugs, wooden flooring and vinyl – from the top manufacturers.
The pile and the yarn are the defining features of any carpet.
Whether it’s natural or man-made, the yarn is woven through the backing of the carpet, forming a loop. This gives a ‘loop pile’ finish, or the loop may be cut to create a ‘cut pile’ carpet.
Most manufactures produce several styles and give them their own names such as Saxony, Axminster or Wilton. Each carpet's appearance, texture, and longevity is also determined by the type of fibre in the yarn.
