A carpet isn’t something you will be investing in often, so care should be taken to ensure you are making the right choice for your home. Here are my top three tips to help you make the right choice.
Every room in your home will be used for different purposes. This should be foremost in your mind when it comes to choosing your carpet. If your room gets a lot of traffic such as the living room, then you will need to opt for carpet that can take a lot of punishment. Bedroom carpets on the other hand are not likely to receive anything like as much traffic so your carpet doesn’t need to be quite robust.
Many people will try to play safe when they choose a carpet and opt for a neutral colour. This can sometimes leave a room without personality if walls are also painted in neutral colours. Your choice of carpet should fit your personality and the style of your room, so don’t be afraid to experiment with bold colours and patterns.
The texture of your carpet can make a big difference to how it feels underfoot. Dense textures will be better suited to stairs and hallways while extra soft carpets will be better suited to bedrooms. Living room carpets need to be tough as well as retaining some softness.
