Purchasing a wall to wall carpet is a big investment and if you do not have the right kind of guidance, you will not only end up with having a very mismatched room but also end up wasting a lot of your money. So to avoid both of these things, it is best if you read this guide.
The first and most important thing to consider when buying the carpet is that which room this carpet is going to cover. Thus, your drawing room will have a different kind of carpet than your personal room and so on. Do you want good looks or easy maintenance? These are the type of questions you should ask yourself depending on the room you want to decorate and then go for selecting a carpet based on that preference of yours.
Fiber is the most important factor to consider when buying a carpet because it determines the softness and texture of the carpet. People usually go for soft carpets these days so you might want to look into that. The type of fiber offers comfort under the foot and also suppresses the sound. Therefore ask for specification sheets. Don’t be confused; ask for help from the representative if you must.
Wool and Nylon:
Wool has and always will have that look of luxury. Doesn’t worry about stains, if you clean up as soon as you spill something no stains will be left. Though once again, with such investment you have to tread on volatile grounds. Nylon is the runner up to wool in terms of feel and performance; you might want to go for nylon if you are looking for cheap price and good performance. Nylon has excellent resistance so that is a plus point.
Cut pile, loop pile and cut-loop pile:
So these are the three types of designs you will find in carpets. Cut achieves its durability through amount of twists and turns. Loop piles are good for high traffic areas such as living rooms and cut-loop is a combination of both.
In conclusion, research on the place, research on your budget and go get your best wall to wall carpet.
