10 Tips for choosing the right carpet – Absolut Carpets JHB
Looking to install new carpets in your home, office or commercial environment? Nothing beats the sheer luxury and comfort that comes with installing new carpets, especially in your home. Tiles and laminate flooring might be easier to clean, but let’s face it, carpets are much softer and more comfortable to walk on. If you’re headfast on installing carpets, yet not sure which type, style and texture will be best for your personal needs, here are a few tips for choosing the right carpet:
- Set your budget: First things first – Set your budget. Once you have established the budget you have available for the carpets, it’s easier to look for carpets now that you have a price range to look in. This will also make it easier for the carpet supplier, who will show you samples of suitable carpet ranges. Take the size of the room or surface into account when deciding on the budget, you will ultimately work on a price per square meter.
- Types of carpets: There are many types of carpet available on the market, which can be quite overwhelming if you don’t know the difference. There are three main types of carpet piles, namely loop pile, cut pile and woven Loop pile carpets present fibres that are looped, whilst cut pile carpets are sheared, exposing the ends of the fibres. Each type has its own benefits, and both are popular choices. Woven carpets are made by massive looms that weave together ‘bobbins’ of carpet yarn and backing. Once you decide on the type of carpet you want to install, it will narrow down your options, making the final choice easier for you.
