SELECTING A RESIDENTIAL CARPET
The carpet you select can make a very dramatic change to both the look and the feel of your home. You can create a look of class and elegance with a plush pile carpet or perhaps a French Provincial or Seaside feel with a textured loop pile.
Not only does a quality carpet enhance the look, it can make your home more comfortable to live in by reducing noise levels and sound transmission and carpet has excellent thermal qualities keeping your environment warm and energy efficient.
Carpet can also help to minimize injuries when falls occur, especially to toddlers and the elderly.
KEY THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING YOUR NEW CARPET
A quality carpet that is well maintained should keep its appearance and resilience for many years. When choosing your carpet always consider heavy traffic areas in your home such as the living rooms and stairs. It makes good sense to buy the carpet that best suits your needs.
Selecting the colour of your carpet can be easy.
You may have a wall colour you need to work with or perhaps a favourite piece of furniture. The colour of your carpet can give your room a feeling of warmth and coziness, or, a brighter and more open feel.
It's also a good idea to consider your lifestyle when choosing a colour. You may have children, pets or live in rural areas where spills and dirty feet can be a problem, where it may be more practical to go with a darker and more forgiving colour. Alternatively you may have a chic city apartment where you want to create a feeling of space with a subtle colour.
Whatever the look there are a vast array of colours available in both our wool and solution dyed nylon carpets.
Carpets can come in various styles from a glamorous plush pile, a smart twist pile or a practical loop pile.
A plush pile carpet has a very luxurious feel and look but it will also show footprints, this is a natural feature of the style.
A twist pile carpet has a more twisted finish whilst still maintaining a softness and practicality and is less likely to show foot traffic.
A loop pile carpet is a very practical and hardwearing style that can have a variety of patterns whether it's a textured or multi level loop or a sisal. This style of carpet is requires minimal upkeep so it's perfect for those families with a busy lifestyle.
When choosing the fibre of your carpet, whether it's Wool or Solution Dyed Nylon there is no right or wrong. This depends largely on your individual lifestyle and what you see as important in your carpet.
Wool carpets have the enduring quality of being both natural and sustainable.
Wool naturally contains lanolin so it has it's own soil repelling qualities and it also provides excellent fire resistance so it's very safe for your family.
Solution Dyed Nylon is the next generation of man made fibre with the yarn being the same colour throughout the fibre, not just dyed on the outer surface. A simple analogy would be a carrot compared to a radish. This technology offers outstanding colour fastness and cleanability. A solution dyed nylon carpet is a great option for a home that has lots of windows, as they are less prone to fading.
