Are you looking for affordable carpets that are stylish and durable now that it’s time to redo your floors? Our mid-range options have what you’re seeking. As specialists when it comes to innovative flooring solutions, we know that the South African market loves a great bargain – without compromising on quality, beauty and durability. Carpeting is considered one of the most luxurious forms of flooring, and many have the idea that high-quality, wall-to-wall carpets are outside of what they can afford. At Top Carpets and Floors, however, we have a line of superior options, whether you are looking for affordable carpets in the budget, mid-tier or even higher-end range. Below, we take a look at how to find superb options for your home, and which mid-range products we would recommend this season.
How to Choose Between Our Range of Affordable Carpets
There are several things to consider when choosing the best carpet for your home. The first thing to think about is the location of the installation, as different rooms have their own requirements. Soft and plush carpeting, for example, is often used in bedrooms, while more durable options are utilised in high-traffic areas like hallways and walkways. If you don’t plan on redoing your entire room’s décor or furnishings, you will want a design that grounds the space and highlights the best features in staple items like couches, curtains, art pieces, and other furniture. Colours and patterns can also make the room look warmer, cooler, smaller, or more expansive, so choosing wisely is essential.
There are also different pile types from which to choose, such as a cut pile, loop pile and more. Some pile types show footprints, while others don’t or mask it well. The type of pile can also add to how durable and wear-resistant the carpet is, which means that aesthetics is not all that matters when selecting a design. One must keep in mind that the cost of installing a carpet does not just come down to the product itself, but the subfloor preparation and installation thereof too.
We understand that it can be tricky to pick the right design, which is why we have a room visualiser tool where you can upload a photograph of any room in your home, and simulate what various products would look like in that room. Along with professional guidance and advice, this is one more way in which we help you make an informed decision when shopping for affordable carpets.

We have several options for anyone seeking affordable carpets of phenomenal quality. Here, we highlight three beautiful products from our Designer Collection, which emphasises trendy, timeless and sophisticated floors.
- The Triumph Range: This range is highly affordable, featuring a smooth, tailored Berber look that is made from 100% solution-dyed polypropylene.

- The Angora Range: The Angora range is slightly more expensive, but still falls within the higher end of the mid-range. It is made from 100% pure wool, which offers exciting benefits such as being repellent to dirt and stains, as well as being fire retardant and fade resistant. Wool also boasts antimicrobial properties. This is a tufted loop pile suited for heavy residential use.
The Benefits of Carpeting in Your Home
There are various benefits of carpeting within a home, most notably how they add a touch of opulence to any space. They are comfortable to walk on underfoot, as their plush fibres absorb impact. This also adds to their grip, which prevents falls and injuries for elderly people and small children. If certain rooms tend to become particularly cold during the winter months, installing wall-to-wall carpeting is one of the best ways to warm the space up. Their sound insulation even helps in reducing noise levels by absorbing noises. Overall, carpets are not only stylish but practical too. For that added touch of warmth and comfort, you can’t go wrong with the affordable carpets in our collection.
