Buying New Carpet: A Thorough Guide
Buying a new carpet for your home is something you don’t purchase very often which is why it is so important to ensure that when you do, you choose something that is going to last. With it usually having so much use around the house, buying quality flooring that is durable is a must; this is where we can help.
Our team of experienced advisors can help you with your research so that you know you’re buying a carpet that will match your style and will last for years to come. With so many different styles and variations available, it can be daunting researching the one that will suit you.
We have compiled a list of some things worth looking out for when purchasing new flooring, including some common questions we get asked.
Who Fits My New Carpets?
It is common when purchasing carpet online that you schedule your own fitter to come around. However, when purchasing flooring with us we provide a complete service. This means from measuring your home to fitting it you’ll be worry-free about arranging any other services.
Often booking your own carpet fitter can end up being more expensive than our service due to varying charges & rates in your local area. If you want clean and perfectly fitted flooring then it is always best to have a professional do it. As our staff are experienced with all of the types we supply, they are more than equipped to leave your flooring looking amazing.
Our team fit all our carpets in accordance with BS5325. This is the UK standard for all textile floor coverings.
Is Underlay Necessary & When Should It Be Fitted?
Underlay isn’t necessary when fitting new flooring however, we cannot recommend it enough. As purchasing new flooring is an investment and you want it to last a long time, it’s important to extend its life as much as possible. Underlay is fantastic at this because it acts as both insulation and a protective layer from the hard flooring below. Coming in various thicknesses, you can choose which one you prefer with the thickest being the most insulated and cushioning.
Generally, if your carpet is very high quality and more premium, we recommend that you also go for a premium underlay as this will ensure the durability & improved comfort of your flooring for longer.
Which Type Of Carpet Will Suit Each Room?
It is fundamental to understand your room when deciding on new flooring. Each home, and each section of that property, has its own peculiarities and characteristics, in our experience. This is something to think about while buying carpet.
A bedroom carpet is often subjected to considerably less wear and tear than the stairs. This may mean going for a more luxury look in your bedroom and more durable flooring for your stairwell.
