Three Things to Remember When Choosing New Carpet

For a durable quiet underfoot and well insulated floor covering you cant go past carpet. But buying carpet is not as simple as walking in choosing one and then walking back out. Its 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 youll love. Know your fabrics 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 its 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 its 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 theres 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 arent always true to life and wont show you what lint or stains will look like on your chosen colour.
