Tips for Choosing the Perfect Carpet for You

Choosing a carpet for your house can be a challenge, as it is important that you make the right decision. With so much choice out there, you can rest assured that Joe Walker’s Flooring has the carpets you have been looking for. These easy tips will ensure that you select the perfect carpet for your home.

Consider Your Lifestyle

When choosing a carpet for your home, your lifestyle is a very important factor to consider. If you have a young family and/or pets, you will definitely need a hard wearing carpet. You will also probably be looking for a carpet which is easy to clean, or in a forgiving colour, so that you do not need to worry about any spillages. A textured loop or a quality hard twist can be a great choice if you are looking for a forgiving, hard-wearing carpet. If you like to entertain, you may also want to consider a darker coloured carpet – for those pesky red wine stains!

Understanding Colour

A hugely important factor in choosing the right carpet for you is the colour. The colour of your carpet can do a whole host of things for your room, so it is important that you select the right colour to suit your needs and the feel of the room. Darker colours are great for making a room feel cosy and warm. Lighter carpets are excellent if you are looking to make a room feel larger and more open, while a carpet which combines a couple of colours in a subtle, neutral blend can be more forgiving of stains.

The Feel of Your Carpet

If you and your family particularly like lounging about on the floor, it can be a good idea to go for a dense, heavier carpet with more yarn which will make it more comfortable to lie on. When choosing a carpet, you should also consider the type of fibre in your carpet as it can have an impact on the way your carpet feels. Wool carpets feel cool in summer and warm in winter – which can be great if you are looking for carpets in the UK! Nylon and synthetic materials, however, tend to be fade resistant and are soft to the touch.
