TIPS FOR BUYING CARPET

Buy carpet in haste – repent at leisure…..well almost!

When you are looking for a new carpet for your home, there are some key questions to ask yourself.

 

Which room is your carpet going in?
A good carpet supplier will check with you which room it is going in and how much wear and tear the carpet is likely to have. From pure wool carpets to high quality synthetic carpet materials – we have hundreds of flooring options for you to choose from.

 

How long do you want the carpet to last for?
If you want a quick facelift for a property – you want a cheap carpet which looks good.

 

Do you want a carpet that reflects the latest interior design trends?
Choosing a high fashion colour or pattern may also mean you end up needing to change the carpet more frequently. Choosing high fashion options does not mean compromising on quality – our team of carpet experts will help you choose the right balance between fashion and price.

 

How often do you plan to decorate your home?
Think about your future home decorating plans. If you like to ring the changes and paint your walls every couple of years (and you change colours too), you need to bear this in mind when choosing carpets – perhaps sticking to neutral carpet colours would be better for you.

 

How much do you want to pay for your carpet?
The Carpet Foundation say that long lasting good quality carpets typically retail at £20 per square metre. HomeCall believe that you should have low carpet prices rather than low carpet quality – so £13-£17 per square metre is average price for carpet our customers spend.

Don’t forget you may need to budget for carpet grippers, carpet underlay and room divider bars as well as the carpet fitting service too.
