Carpet Flooring: 6 Things To Consider

Carpet flooring is a popular choice in any home because it is soft, easy to maintain, and helps keep a room warm. With so many carpet options available, you may be trying to find the right style and colour for your home. Here are some tips for choosing the right carpet for your home: 

 Keep it neutral 

If you’re unsure of what style or colour you want, or if you’ve already got a lot of patterns/colours in your room already, it may be best to stick with neutral colours. Neutrals are easy to match with all types of decor, and won’t clash with any of your furnishings or walls. 

In large spaces, combining two or more shades of neutral colours can add dimension to your room, creating a simple but stylish look. 

Consider traffic 

When choosing a carpet for your home, considering the amount of traffic in the room is key to your carpet staying in good condition. If you’re searching for carpet for a high-traffic area of your home, you’ll want to choose a durable carpet that withstands heavy foot traffic. 

Making a style statement 

If you’re looking to style up a neutral room, carpet flooring is a great option. There are so many different types, styles and colours of carpets available, so you’’ can easily be able to find one that suits your taste.

If you have multiple bedrooms or children with different tastes in decor, it can be easy to create their own personalised room by switching up their carpets from room to room. Choosing carpet for their bedrooms also helps to keep their rooms warm and quiet. 

Choose quality 

One of the most important things to consider when choosing your carpet flooring is the quality of materials. Choosing carpets made from high-quality materials is the best way to ensure that your carpets are long-lasting. If you have children or pets, you may want to choose materials that can withstand spills and heavy traffic. Carpets that are made from natural fibres are often more stain resistant than those made from synthetic fibres.

Some of the best quality materials for your carpet flooring are nylon, wool and polyester, as these are all extremely durable, and will last you for years to come. 

Size of the room

If you have a small room, a busy pattern can overwhelm it and make it seem smaller. Choosing a simple pattern, or plain colour carpet, can open up the space and make it seem larger than it is, also making it more welcoming. 


Don’t scrimp on good quality underlay for your carpets in the hopes of saving yourself some money. Your carpets need a sturdy foundation, for stability, strength and extra cushioning and warmth. Choosing an inadequate padding material can cause more wear and tear on your new carpet, meaning it won’t last you as long as you expect. 

Professional fitting 

Once you have found the perfect carpet for the space, it’s time to get it installed. Make sure you’ve taken the right measurements for your carpet, as you’ll need to make sure you have enough material to cover the area.
