Customers told us what they thought of every aspect of getting their carpet, from shopping in store to having it fitted. So if you’re planning to splash out on a new carpet, find out who they recommend using to get the best result.

Which? carpet survey

The customer scores we've awarded to each company are based on how satisfied people are with their carpet retailer overall, and whether or not they’d recommend it to a friend.

To find these ratings, in August 2019 we surveyed 2,152 people who had bought carpet in the last 10 years and asked about their experiences.
