The advantages of wall-to-wall carpets


Few things are more welcoming and relaxing than the plush softness of a clean wall-to-wall carpet under your feet. In addition, carpets are an easy way to anchor the décor of your home.

Décor specialists all agree that you’re investing in your home and lifestyle by choosing the most suitable wall-to-wall carpets for every room. Your choice of colour and texture will influence the feel and style of your space. Natural colours will match any and every shade. Light-coloured carpets will make a room feel bigger and brighter while darker carpets create a cosier, more intimate appearance. But light-coloured carpets are not a wise choice for rooms with heavy, grubby foot traffic – thicker, patterned and shaded carpets work best for these areas.

Why fitted carpets?

Cost Carpeting is one of the most affordable floor coverings on the market.

Range The huge variety of colours, textures and materials available allows homeowners to choose anything from pure wool – which is not only luxurious and durable but also stain-resistant – to more affordable options when you need them.

Dust Dust levels are far lower in carpeted homes because carpet fibres trap dust particles until you can vacuum them.

Allergies Many allergies are caused by dust but carpets trap these particles. Regular vacuuming will reduce the incidence of dust mites.

Safety The non-slip surface of carpets makes them safer for children and the elderly, who might not be perfectly steady on their feet. Carpets also reduce injuries if falls do take place.

Health Research has proven that the texture of a wall-to-wall carpet acts as massage therapy for bare feet. Soft, plush carpets also soften the impact on muscles and joints.

Temperature Control Wall-to-wall carpets feel warmer underfoot in winter and cooler in the hot summer months.

Acoustics Carpeting not only absorbs sound, doing your neighbours a favour in the process, but also enhances the quality of sound from your TV or sound system.

Durability With proper care, your carpets will provide you with years of service. Regular vacuuming and steam-cleaning will significantly extend the lifespan of a carpet.
