Things to Think About When Choosing Lounge Carpets August 2012

It’s great to have variety and with so many different types of lounge carpets out there, you really are spoiled for choice. However, with so many different floorings available, it can be hard to know which is the right one for you. Read our guide to the things you need to consider when choosing lounge carpets so you can make an informed decision.

Beauty and durability

For most people, the lounge is a very well used room, whch means to pick the right carpet you need to find the balance between beauty and durability. After all there’s no point in choosing a super hard wearing carpet if you don’t like the way it looks.

Luckily, these days there are lots of beautiful carpets out there that are also incredibly tough and strong, so you won’t have trouble finding attractive lounge carpets that will also stand up to the daily wear and tear of life.

Stain protection

To really protect your carpet from spills, dirt, dust and grime choose one with built in stain protection. Many carpets are treated with special chemicals which can make them resistant to liquids and make dealing with any spillages much easier. Professional installation

The way a carpet is installed can really affect how good it looks and a badly fitted carpet will be a constant annoyance. Of course you can have a go at fitting a carpet yourself, but it’s so much easier to get the professionals in. New carpet is a big investment so if you try to fit it yourself and make a mistake it could end up costing you a lot of money and causing a lot of stress.

Proper preparation

Before carpet is laid at your home it’s essential to prepare your floors properly. They need to be clean and clear from any debris or things which could cause damage to your carpet such as nails. If you are buying a carpet and then getting professional installation don’t forget that in most cases you will also need underlay.
