How to Choose the Right Carpet for Your Home

16/04/2018

Before you start looking at carpets you’ll need to think about what is most important to you. This depends on several factors, such as where the carpet is going to be fitted. Different areas of your home will have different needs depending on their use – take stairs for example – they are high traffic areas of your home and would benefit from a hard-wearing carpet. Others, such as the bedroom, will allow for something more delicate.

As well as the area, consider who lives with you. Those of you with small children will require a carpet that is easy to clean so spending your money on a carpet that is going to struggle to cope with spillages and stains could be wasteful.

It’s worth considering all your needs and requirements, so you know the right questions to ask when it comes to buying your new carpet. For now, here are a couple of helpful elements for you to consider:

  • Materials – it’s important you know the ins and outs of each material, so that you can choose the most suitable for you. For example, wool is a very soft and luxurious material. Its fibres are opaque and hide dirt better than man-made carpets. However, it is harder to wash and will react badly to harsh chemicals like bleach - it must be cleaned using certain products, so if you’ve got a busy household, prone to spillages, this may not be the one for you.
  • Carpet type/construction – there are many different types of carpet; twist, velvet and loop being just a few. Twist carpets are suitable for most rooms in the home from the landing to the living room and feel soft to touch. However, depending on the material, they are more susceptible to flattening than loop carpets. In a loop carpet the material is formed into a coil for a textured finish. The flat level loop is better suited for high-traffic areas due to its sustainability.

Coldbath have a wide range of stunning carpets, in a variety of colours, patterns and materials. Our experienced team will be able to guide you through our ranges to help you pick the perfect carpet for your needs.
