Top Tips to Remember When Buying a New Carpet

When buying carpet for your home, it is important that you carefully consider a number of factors. Whether you are redecorating or simply replacing your old, tired carpet, you can be sure that Joe Walker’s Flooring has the best carpets Glasgow has on offer.

The Room

A core factor that you should consider when buying carpet is which room is the carpet for? For example, if your carpet is for your hallway, it is going to have to take a lot more wear and tear than a carpet in your bedroom. So, you should consider what type of material is required to ensure that your carpet lasts as long as possible. At Joe Walker’s Flooring, we have some of the strongest and greatest carpets available, so you can be sure that we have a carpet to suit your needs. For more tips check out our last post.

The Colour Scheme

No one wants a horribly miss-matched room, so when buying carpet, carefully consider the colour scheme and décor in your chosen room. Knowing the style and look that you are trying to create in a room, can make choosing your carpet much easier. When trying to find the right carpet for your home, you should also consider whether you are looking for a plain or patterned carpet. While a plain carpet gives you more flexibility in a room, a pattern can often offer more colour options (and can also be great for disguising stains).




Samples are a great way to fully gauge what the carpet will look like in your home. By taking a sample home with you, you can very quickly see how your carpet will look in your home environment, with the right lighting and setting. By looking at samples at home, you will have a much better understanding of what the carpet will look like in your own home.
