How to Find the Best Luxurious Carpet for You

Are you looking for outstanding, luxurious carpets for your home? At Joe Walker’s Flooring, we have the greatest range of luxury carpets Glasgow has on offer. Whether you are re-carpeting the guest bedroom or the lounge and hallway, we have the perfect, luxurious carpet for you.

Natural Lighting

Firstly, you should consider how much natural light the room receives, if the room receives a lot of sun light, you should look for a carpet which is fade resistant, to ensure that your carpet remains the same colour for years to come.

Foot Traffic

Secondly, you need to consider the foot traffic in the room. Hallways and stairs, for example, endure higher levels of foot traffic than the likes of a bedroom, with this in mind, durability is key for the living areas of your home. For these high traffic areas, you should consider finding a low, dense loop pile carpet made from a sturdy material such as nylon to ensure that your carpet lasts for years to come. In areas with lower footfall, you may consider a more luxurious carpet, such as a deep pile carpet for extra comfort under foot.

How Do You Use the Room?

If the room is close to an external door or is used for eating and socialising, you should consider finding a stain resistant carpet – so there is no need to cry over spilt milk!

Cut and Loop Pile Carpets

Once you have considered the above factors, you can start your search for the best luxurious carpet for you. Carpets are available in different types of “piles”, cut, loop and a mixture of the two. As you would expect, cut pile carpets have had the ends trimmed, so the fibres stand up from the backing. Loop pile carpets yarn is left uncut. Berber is a popular style of loop pile with short, right loops making the carpet incredibly durable and evenly distributes the impact of foot traffic and furniture weight.
