assorted-carpetsCarpet Buying In Concise

  • No one material or style is superior to another overall
  • Use the following points when purchasing carpet for your home:
  • where the carpet will be
  • who is using it
  • how much traffic it receives
  • how large your budget is
  • Great-quality nylon can now imitate the luxurious look of wool, with the addition of stain resistance.
  • Never buy a new carpet without also purchasing new underlay.

Purchasing the wrong carpet can be a costly mistake if you don’t choose intelligently. The following carpet buying information will arm you with all the info you need before you take the plunge.


Why carpet?

Carpet is multipurpose, keeps your home cooler in summer and warmer in winter, is slip-free (particularly advantageous for the elderly), provides a quieter indoor environment and is relatively simple to maintain. The jury’s out, but there is also some evidence to suggest that it helps allergic individuals by trapping dust mites (see allergies).


What are the associated fees?

Carpet is generally priced by the broadloom meter – 1 m x 3.66 m. Make sure you convert to square meters when comparing carpet prices to other floor coverings, for example tiles or timber.

Not one carpet fiber is inherently more desirable as compared with any other. Each fiber is available in a variety of qualities and prices. The most significant points are choosing a fiber, style and construction matching with your lifestyle and budget; and ensuring it is suitable in the room it will be installed.

How about color?

Carpet is available to purchase in every colour, any print or pattern  you could imagine. When scouting for a color, ask yourself – do you want a natural color that blends in, or do you want a captivating color that reflects your personal type?

  • Lighter colors are ideal for small rooms as they will make it seem larger; but they will show stains more readily compared to darker shades.
  • Dark colors will be inclined to show lint.
  • Cool greens along with blues will provide a relaxing effect.
  • Reds yellows as well as browns will warm up a room.
