Before shopping for cheap carpet it is important to do your research. Take the following things into consideration before shopping for carpet for your home and the entire experience will be a lot smoother.
Think about What Look You Wish to Achieve
Carpets are available in a variety of colours, styles, and designs. Take a few moments to think about what type of look you wish to achieve in your home. This will allow you to narrow down whether you are looking for a light coloured carpet or a dark coloured patterned carpet.
Think about Where the Carpet will be Placed in the Home
If you are going to be laying carpet in a room with a lot of sunlight, it might be a good idea to consider purchasing carpets that are designed to withstand harsh UV rays. If you are placing carpet in room that doesn’t have a lot of sunlight, then you will not have to worry about the possibility of having the colour fade as a result of direct exposure to UV rays.
For people who are worried about colour fading that occurs due to UV exposure, a good carpeting option is one that has gone through a solution fibre dye process. This dye process adds an extra layer of protection and will make the colouring on the carpets last longer, even when it is exposed to direct sunlight.
Take Time to Research the Star Rating on the Carpet
Every type of carpet that is created for residential use will come with a star rating. The star rating is given by the Carpet Institute of Australia. The rating indicates how durable the carpet is and how long it should last.
Carpets with lower ratings, such as 1, 2 or 3 stars are often used as decorative carpets. These carpets are placed in rooms where there isn’t a lot of foot traffic.
Carpets with higher rates, such as 4, 5 and even 6, are durable and long lasting. These carpets are the ones you would install in high-traffic rooms. The carpets are ideal for these types of rooms because they are often made out of heavy-duty material and will be able to withstand the harsh wear and tear carpets experience when a lot of people come and go from a room.
