Top carpet tips to help you love coming homeMay 3, 2019
Does your floor say welcome home or wear & tear?
How does walking through the door make you feel? Your home is perhaps the one place you can realise your interior design dreams, flex your creative muscles and build a space you feel completely, perfectly at ease.
It’s a space you love.
All too often though, our carpets don’t reflect this. Years of wear & tear, dirt and dust, spills and stains, all take their toll on our floors and leave them looking worn and faded. Unlike, for example, curtains, fittings or wallpaper, our carpets bear the brunt of everyday life and suffer for it.
Heavy foot traffic and moving furniture treads down the pile, and they soon start to leave their original vibrancy and charm behind. Many of us don’t change our carpets for many years after they’ve deteriorated, failing to notice the gradual decline and just falling gradually out of love with our home interiors, little by little, without quite realising why. A good carpet has a distinctive feel and look, and has the power to change the way we feel in our homes. Literally every step you take through your home can be improved by a high quality floor- meaning if you’ve overlooked upgrading your carpet for a few years- it could be the answer to falling back in love with coming home.
At Pyramid we specialise in helping people find the carpets that make them love coming home. That’s how we’ve become South Yorkshire’s favourite carpet store, with our Sheffield showroom visited by thousands of homeowners who have left ready to give their home interiors a new lease of life with a vibrant and stylish carpet. Here are some things to look for to help you find a carpet that will make coming home the highlight it should be.
- Choose one that’s durable
Imagine the feeling of stepping onto a brand new carpet that cushions & warms, springy and comfy at the same time. Bright and stylish, it captures the eye and creates a feeling of light and space to the room. This is what great carpet should do. Now imagine if this effect was not a new carpet at all, but one that’s been in place for years. Even after years of wear, it’s still just as attractive and comfortable as it was on day one. That’s the importance of choosing a durable carpet. Two, five or even ten years later- you want to experience the same comfort & quality you get on the day you fit your carpet. We recommend using a specially-designed, ultra-durable material such as synthetics, which stand up well to wear & tear and keep their colour better than natural fibres.
- Comfort is king
Choosing the right thickness of carpet for your floor means getting the right balance of comfort, warmth and depth for your needs. Bedrooms and living rooms, where comfort is typically most important, often benefit from both a deeper carpet and a thicker underlay, which both helps heat retention and makes the floor more comfortable. It allows you to stretch out in comfort in front of the TV, walk around in bare feet in the night and enjoy warmth and luxurious softness even on the coldest winter’s day.
- Go stain resistant
Nothing reflects more poorly on the state of your carpet than a great big stain. Whether it’s pets, children, food, or a glass of red wine gone rogue: it only takes one lapse in attention for your carpet to come off badly, quickly. As we’ve previously discussed on our blog, it’s possible to save your carpet from stains, but knowing the right way to fight the different spills, mess and marks can be tricky. If you’re worried about your carpet being marked, using an advanced synthetic fibre for your carpet helps avoid staining and limits the spread of bacteria, meaning mildew and smells are kept at bay.
