Carpets and rugs are a great addition to any home and are both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Both carpets and rugs are available in a wide range of colours, styles and patterns, meaning that they are able to suit any décor and, best of all, they are always in style. Carpets and rugs are comfortable underfoot, have insulating properties and are low maintenance, only needing to be professionally cleaned every 12 months or so. Carpets and rugs are now available with the latest stain resistant technologies, meaning that the fear of permanent stains from spills is far in the past. Carpet is also a safe decorating option as it has grip, minimizing the risk of slips and falls.
Here is all you need to know about carpets and rugs.
If you are having new carpet laid in your home, you will need the help of a professional carpet layer. The first thing you will need to do is find out if they will move your furniture if necessary or if you will have to do it yourself. Also find out if they will dispose of the old carpet for you if your new carpet is a replacement. To find out more see carpet install.
Carpet suppliers are able to supply all types of carpet for your home. The supplier should have a large range of quality carpets from all price points and in a huge range of colours. You will find that the supplier can supply carpet such as cut pile, twist pile, patterned cut pile, patterned twist pile, patterned cut and loop, textured cut and loop, textured loop, and sisal. See below for information about these various types of carpet. For more information see carpet suppliers.
Underlay is another component that you should consider and when purchasing underlay for your carpet, try to get the best that you can afford. You may not be able to see it, but good underlay will cushion the carpet and allow it to wear slowly and evenly, lengthening the life of your carpet. It will also help with insulation, reducing noise and absorbing foot traffic.
