For a durable, quiet underfoot and well insulated
floor covering, you can’t go past carpet. But buying carpet is not as simple as
walking in, choosing one and then walking back out. It’s generally not a cheap
item to buy and install, but armed with the information below we believe you
can avoid making an expensive mistake and end up with a carpet you’ll love.
Size of the
area, budget and traffic of the space will factor into which fabric you choose,
but we believe that also knowing the pros and cons of each fabric matter too.
Wool carpet is the it’s warm, durable and naturally stain-resistant. Nylon is a
hard-working, cheaper alternative that resists cleaning and sunlight staining
and is ideal for children and pets and if you find a well made one, it can look
luxurious. Polypropylene / polyester is synthetic and cheap and it looks it,
but it’s good for playrooms that are likely to end up covered in stains and
mess anyways or investment properties. Wool/Nylon blends are a slightly more
budget-friendly option that are durable and high quality.
Pick your colours wisely
Show rooms like
Newcastle Carpet One have a wide range of colour options to choose
from and while your aesthetic should definitely be taken into account, there’s
other factors to consider. Lighter colours make small rooms look larger, but
show stains more easily, while dark colours hide stains but show lint. Speckled
carpets hide stains and lint but people often complain that they always look
dirty. We highly recommend visiting a showroom and trampling across carpet
samples a few times, as online colours aren’t always true to life and won’t show
you what lint or stains will look like on your chosen colour.
