When it comes to choosing a carpet for your home, there are a few things you need to take into account. At AFS, we know the key things to look out for, read on below to find out more.
Footfall depends on the room your carpet is in. Bedrooms tend to see less footfall, so a softer surface may be more suitable. Alternatively, halls and living rooms will see increased traffic, requiring a more durable carpet.
Colour can massively effect the feel of a room. They can make a room feel bright or dark, as well as warm or cool. Additionally, the colour will influence how often you must clean to keep it looking presentable. We recommend darker colours for areas with heavy traffic, but lighter colours for bedrooms or living rooms to increase the comfort you feel in those rooms.
When it comes to choosing a carpet, one of the main things you need to consider is the material it is made from. Carpets can be made of a variety of materials, but some are more popular than others. At AFS, we offer carpets in Tunbridge Wells, made from several different materials, including wool, nylon and polypropylene
Each material has its own advantages and disadvantages. Wool tends to be more expensive but is more durable. It is also effective in insulating your room, trapping both heat and noise to make your space feel more comfortable. Nylon is cheaper than wool, but it doesn’t have the same durability or insulation properties.
Another common example is polypropylene, a man-made fibre that is popular because it is both stain resistant and hardwearing. This means that it is less likely to become dirty or damaged over time, making it a good choice for areas with high traffic.
Laminate flooring is a great option for those looking for a quick and affordable flooring solution. It is easy to install, and can be done in a matter of hours. Additionally, it is durable and can last for years with proper care. Additionally, laminate is relatively easy to maintain, meaning it is a hygienic option. For people with busy lives, laminate can serve as a low-stress and highly durable floor.
The thickness of the laminate floor is a crucial part of the decision making process. Thicker laminate flooring has a more traditional wooden feel, while if the surface is deeper it allows for more detailed etching on the surface. This can create a more luxurious look and feel to your flooring. Additionally, a thicker laminate will be more durable and last longer than a thinner option. Furthermore, the thicker the laminate, the more absorbant it is regarding sound and heat, keeping your room well-regulated and comfortable.
Vinyl is often used in kitchens and bathrooms as well as some commercial applications, but it can be used in every room in your house. It is a great flooring choice because it is durable, easy to clean and maintain, and comes in a variety of colors and styles to match any décor. Vinyl flooring is a desirable option as it is durable, easy to clean and also a cost-effective option. Additionally, with technology improving, it can be a great alternative to wood flooring as vinyl designs become more intricate and realistic.
Luxury Vinyl Tiling (LVT), is a vinyl surface with a similar style to other materials such as real wood or stone flooring. LVT is often used in high-traffic areas as it is durable and easy to clean. Additionally, LVT comes in a variety of colors and styles to fit any décor. If you are looking for a beautiful and durable flooring option, LVT is a great choice. LVT can be a perfect alternative to wood or tiled flooring as designs can be utilised as a faux wood or tile to give you a cost-effective, yet stylish floor.
