How to choose a carpet for your home?

There are so many types of carpet. If it is your first time to choose, you might be overwhelmed with the choices. Choosing the right carpet for your home can be a tough task.

Here are some things to consider to ensure that you get the best carpet for your home:

Carpets can be made from:

  • Wool
  • Synthetic fibre
  • Or a combination of two

Each of them has its own advantages. Wool is soft and retains its pile really well, but can be very expensive. Synthetic fibre can be very resistant to stains and be long wearing.

Think about where you will use your carpet

When choosing a carpet, always consider the room where you are planning to put your carpet. If the room has a lot of heavy traffic, like a hallway, your carpet will receive a lot of wear and tear. Choose a heavier duty carpet or a guaranteed long lasting carpet.

Patterned or Plain Carpet

Want to create a design statement? Choose a patterned carpet. Patterns are great for creating interest in a room so you don’t have to worry about any extra decorating. Patterns are also very good at hiding stains perfect for a children’s play room.

The best way to choose the right carpet for your home is go and have a look and touch the different options available. Have your measurements and be clear about the things that you require from your carpet, where it will go, who will use it etc.

Before you replace your carpet

Can your current carpet be brought back to life?

When was the last time you had your carpets professionally cleaned? A deep down steam carpet clean, you might be surprised how much life is actually left in your current carpet?

Over time carpets that are not regularly vacuumed and annually steam clean can have a buildup of dirt, dust, pet hair, dust mites, pollens and other things that have been blown or walked in. Regular vacuuming is not always enough to right to the bottom of your carpet and get it all out.
