Choosing the Perfect Carpet for your Living Room

Your living room is the true heart of your home, and really is the room where you do the most of your “living”. This means that your living room carpet has to be both comfortable and able to survive a lot of wear and tear. With the help of Joe Walker’s Flooring, you can be sure that you will find the best quality carpets Glasgow has on offer.

Hard Wearing

As the centre of your home, there is no doubt that your living room carpet will be subject to high footfall, a lot of spillages and constant threat of being marked. Between kids, dogs or your evening glass of red wine, your living room carpet has to put up with a lot. This means that you certainly want to invest in a high quality, hard wearing carpet. When looking for a heard wearing carpet, you should be looking for a high pile density. You should use 40oz as a minimum pile density when it comes to finding the perfect carpet to enjoy in your living room for many years to come.

Easy to Clean

When buying a carpet for your living room, you should consider looking for a stain resistant or easy to clean carpet – particularly if you have kids or pets. This will make your life much easier, particularly in the long run and will save you time when it comes to cleaning up any mess. The majority of wool and man made carpets have some level of natural stain resistance, so as long as you clean up any spills as soon as possible, your carpet should be fine. Furthermore, if you vacuum regularly and deep clean your carpet once a year, your carpet will be able to stand the tests of time.

Make a Great Impression

As the main room in your house, you really want your living room carpet to make a great impression. It is important that you consider the style and feel of your living room and the rest of your home when buying a new carpet. Many people choose a neutral coloured carpet for their living room as it allows them to change the room over time without having to replace their gorgeous carpet. However, coloured and pattered carpets can really add to a room and enhance the mood and style of a home. Whatever style of carpet you choose, you can be sure that Joe Walker’s Flooring have the carpets Glasgow loves, and you can be sure that we have the best carpets Glasgow has on offer.

We bought carpets and LVT from joe walkers flooring for our new house and I couldn't be happier with the service and end result. The team in the showroom are very knowledgable and allow you time to look around without pouncing on you and trying to sell to you like you would get in larger companies. Danny came out and measured the house and once we had chosen the flooring, joe sent me the quote promptly. The day of the fitting, joes fitters arrived on time and worked quickly and efficiently and left no mess behind. I would not hesitate in recommending friends and family go to joe walkers flooring.
