After some advice on carpets. Does anyone know of any nice thick carpet that stays nice and doesn't go flat and matted. We have the Invictus one at the moment and its already looking like its been down for years. Is there such a carpet that stays looking nice or are they all the same?

Thanks so much I will have a look. Still gutted about it. Carpet looks terrible when it goes all flat and matted like ours has.

We are looking to purchase Invictus carpets. What are the pro's and con's?

Its easy to clean but I wouldnt recommend it at all. It was only down 2 weeks and was all flat and matted looking. Looked like it had been down months. That was with hoovering every day to the pile still went flat.

We put this in all the bedrooms after we moved a couple of years ago

It’s lovely and soft underfoot and it is holding up well so far. Only issue is if you move furniture around the dints need some TLC to get the pile standing up again.

Thanks will have a look a that. You expect wear over time but not like this. It’s even more annoying that the sales guy recommended the one we have now and stupidly we went with what he said. Won’t make the same mistake again.

A carpet fitter told me not to go with too high a pile (I think the Invictus is quite high) because it looks lovely at the time but flattens.
