With over 70 years experience between them Paul and Jim have a huge knowledge of products and their correct applications. This is put to good use and Avonvale Carpets prides itself on being able to give you the right carpet and fit it at the right price.
One thing that is difficult is to fit all our products and services on one page however in an attempt:
Carpets come in a variety of plain shades and patterns, wool or manmade fibres, plush piles or dense. The long term performance of any carpet depends on more than whether it is an "80/20" or a 40 ounce pile weight as wool comes from a variety of sources and pile weights can be arrived at in a variety of means. Here at Avonvale Carpets we aim to compare like with like, giving you the relevant facts in order to make an informed choice.
All carpets shade but some show this less than others. All textured carpets ("berbers" as they used to be known) fluff or "pill" to give it the technical term but some are more prone than others. Not all carpets are stainproof but depending on the raw materials used some will clean easier than others.
At Avonvale Carpets we deal with bona fide manufacturers who give solid guarantees which are additionally backed up by our

The most popular carpet around today is the woolrich twist. The resilience of the twisted pile helps
the carpet keep its original look for longer than most but a word of warning: There is more to a twist than
just being 80% wool or of a certain pile weight! Is the raw yarn branded or recycled? You can make a carpet
heavier by simply increasing the pile height! We will steer you through all the intricacies of the melee of
Other plain styles are velvets which give that luxury feel and can be tufted in construction or woven.
Like most things the traditional Axminster seems to be coming a thing of the past. We are dealers for companies
such as Axminster Carpets in Devon, Ulster Carpets in Craigavon and Whitestone Weavers in Yorkshire where the
tradition of weaving has been around for centuries. Shown in larger samples there is much to see but failing that
we can also have them produced bespoke to your taste from 100’s of suggested designs at extremely reasonable prices.
Together with the fantastic Highline Express range from Ege Carpets you will find it difficult not to find what you want!

The secret of a good Natural floor is the fitting and we are proud to have one of the best fitters of natural flooring

Probably the longest-standing of all the plant fibre floor coverings it is the natural solution for busy spaces. Its strong
fibres and highly textured finish are well able to withstand all the wear and tear of modern life. The fibre comes from coconut
husk and gives an interesting rustic look to the carpet.
Grown in Brazil and East Africa, traditionally used in rope-making, sisal is an organic fibre that makes a beautiful, strong
floor covering that can be used in most areas of the home. Available in an array of colours, smart designs and finishes and
can be used in every area of the home.
Grown in China in paddy fields Seagrass is inherently strong and resilient but smoother than coir. Seagrass is a simple and
natural alternative for beautiful floors throughout the home but experience tells us not to use it on stairs! As a fibre it is
naturally stain resistant and surprisingly impermeable by moisture.
Grown in the hot, damp regions of Asia, harvested by hand and dried in the sun, jute is an extraordinary fine natural fibre with
a silky soft lustre that transforms any interior. It is suited to areas of the home such as sitting rooms and bedrooms as opposed
to heavier used areas such as passageways and stairs.
The most familiar of all natural fibres, wool has been used to make carpets for the best part of 5000 years. In tune with today's
interiors the designs, natural tones and weaves of the textured wool carpet lend an exciting new dimension to any home.
The modern kitchen carpet is nowadays available with a bleach cleanable surface pile and water resistant backing. These plainer,
stylish carpets will compliment any modern or traditional kitchen finish and the fade resistant nature of this type of carpet make
