hard wearing carpet suggestions

looking to carpet 2 flights of stairs (in a maisonette) and 2 landing areas in a light colour carpet. Can you get stain resistant woven stuff that has very short, if any pile height?
And what sort of cost is it per m2? Am i going to be paying through the nose for the stuff?

many thanks in advance

    Carpetright has some synthetic stuff that we're thinking about. Guaranteed stain and fade resistant, not too dear either, I think around a tenner per yard, or so. They actually use it to carpet their showrooms, apparently, so if it's good enough for that......
  • I suggest that you check out your local independant carpet shop - who will be able to advise you on the correct product for your needs. NB They will have a much larger selection available than your large superstores and are usually just as good on price!

    Hello glenbat

    We have a high wool content carpet on the stairs, it's 12 years old and no signs of wear.;)

  • Anything Polypropelene....they are bleach cleanable..dont fade, cant absorb moisture(hence satin resistance is fantastic) and cheap to boot

    Avoid getting a solid colour as they show every mark. Something tweedy is much better.

    This blokes right. Most people say 80/20 is the best but polyprop is bionic and unstainable. They have to make the fibres the final colour during manufacture.
