We have put together a short buying guide so that you can be aware of the different carpet materials available to you, and pick the best one for your home.
1. Wool Carpet
Wool carpets have always had an outstanding reputation for both quality and overall durability. Wool is a natural fibre that provides excellent appearance and can be long lasting if maintained correctly. The material can act as an insulator and keep your house warmer during winter seasons, making it energy efficient and comfortable during the colder winter months.
2. Nylon Carpet
Nylon carpets are known to be a synthetic fibre that is the most durable type for all seasons. The synthetic material means they have a far greater resilience compared to other materials and can get back into its original shape even after having furniture in the same position for years. This is an ideal option if you like to rearrange furniture often in your house as it doesn’t leave that imprint.
3. Acrylic Carpet
Acrylic carpets have been known to be very similar to wool, in appearance and overall being soft, warm and lightweight, along with a lower price tag. They have good thermal insulation and can be used as a substitute. They’re even easier to clean, maintained easily, more resistant to wear and tear making it an excellent choice during the winter for those on a budget.
4. Polyester Carpet
Polyester carpet is becoming a more popular choice for a carpet. Similar to acrylic, it is cheaper than wool and a more suitable choice for those who have asthma and allergy sufferers due to its material and fibres. They are water resistant, making it easy to clean, eco friendly and can maintain warmth/comfort in your home for a long time.
Overall, there are a variety of carpet materials to choose from and we know that each one has a different purpose depending on your needs and where in your house you want to get it fitted. Decide on the material of carpet based on household occupants, life span, maintenance, how you want the carpet to look and feel and your overall budget.
