At Beccles Carpet Centre we have a vast choice of carpets from hardwearing twists to woven Wilton's, pure wool carpets to textured Berbers, traditional Axminster's and sumptuous Saxony's.
We have a large showroom with stands and samples from all the leading manufacturers, including a dedicated showroom for Axminster and Wilton Carpets. We also have over forty rolls of stock carpet ready to be fitted or take away. We have one of the largest selections in the area and if we don't have it we can usually source it.
Types of Carpet
There are essentially two types of carpet sold in the UK - Tufted or Woven carpet.
Tufted carpet is much quicker and easier to make. A Woven carpet can be either an ‘Axminster’ or a ‘Wilton’. Axminster carpet is predominantly patterned with unlimited colour potential. Wilton tends to be plain but can use up to 5 colours. The manufacturing methods for both are traditional and labour intensive.
Wool is an excellent natural fibre that offers superb resilience to wear and general soiling. Textured wool carpets can make the floor a real feature, adding the contemporary look of modern flooring, but with the warmth and comfort of wool.
Many synthetic carpets come with built in stain resistance and most of these are also resistant to mild bleach. Some of these also come with built in comfort felt backing which does not need an underlay, offering true value for money.
