We would recommend a fairly flat close pile carpet such as a good quality twist, Wilton or Axminster. This is due to the fact that this is a particularly heavy traffic area so a higher pile “softer carpet” would flatten excessively and look unsightly. These carpets will stipulate a “heavy domestic” rating. A good quality underlay is also recommended.
Most carpets are suitable for bedrooms as it is a low traffic area, so people mostly go for softer more luxurious carpets that are nice on the feet. We would still recommend a good quality underlay to help prevent flattening.
Underlay is required to help with the wear of your carpet as it helps the carpet fibres to “bounce back” and prevents excessive flattening. This therefore makes your carpet feel soft and luxurious under foot.
Yes, there are now carpets made with a “felt” backing. This can be fitted with or without underlay, so are ideal if you have a limited budget.
Most carpets are now made in a standard 4 meter width, with more and more manufacturers introducing a super width of 5 meters. In most instances we can now fit larger rooms without joins.
We recommend that your vacuum your carpet at least twice a week. We also recommend that your carpets are professionally cleaned once a year to help maintain the appearance and wear of your carpet.
