Carpet is an ideal floor covering for your living room, dining room, bedrooms, hallway, stairs and many other areas of your home. Not only does carpet represent a quality investment, it’s also much harder to change than a sofa or curtains, so it’s important to make the right choice.
At Carpet Court, Australia’s largest carpet and flooring retailer, you can choose from a wide variety of carpets to suit your style, space and budget.
Choose the right material for your needs
Carpets today are predominantly made from wool and man-made fibres. Each of these materials has their own particular qualities and benefits.
- Wool carpets like Gaia Wool Carpet range are truly luxurious. They are soft to the touch, wonderful to walk on and durable. Wool is also an excellent insulator and will help to keep your home warm and reduce noise.
- Wool-blend carpets offer many of the excellent properties of natural fibres mixed in with some of the advantages of man-made fabrics. Percentages will vary and this may be reflected in the price of the carpet.
- Man-made carpets are attractive and hardwearing. If you have young children or pets and therefore require a low-maintenance, high-performance carpet, a man-made carpet is ideal. It can cope with heavy footfall, dirt, and spillages.
Also consider any health issues, such as allergies. If you or someone in your family is allergic either to natural fibres such as wool or to man-made fibres, it’s essential to take this into consideration when choosing a carpet.
Choose your colour carefully
The colour of your carpet can make a big difference to your home. Some light colours can be used to make small spaces look larger and more open, while dark colours can create a cosy and intimate feel. Of course, lifestyle and issues such as pets, small children or a home with many people coming in and out regularly may require a carpet that does not show marks too easily or one that stands up to vigorous cleaning!

If you are new to the world of carpets or have a large home to re-carpet, you will save money and probably a lot of stress by asking advice from carpet experts. Not only will they know which carpet will suit which space, but they can also advise you on the specifics on laying and measuring carpet.
Carpet Court staff will be able to advise you and even offer you a free in-home measuring service to ensure that you know exactly how much carpet will be needed for your space. With more than 100 locations Australia-wide, you can pop in and visit your nearest store, or check out their range of carpets via the website.

Out of sight but not out of mind…
An important part of buying and installing a new carpet is a good quality underlay. Sourcing a quality underlay will mean that the carpet will last longer, perform better and keep its looks for years to come.
Of course, you may not want to have carpet fitted in all areas of your home. Some people prefer the practicality of wooden or laminate floors in busy areas such as kitchens, and vinyl or multi-layer hybrid can also be a great choice of floor covering for your bathroom or utility area. Carpet Court also has a huge range of flooring options, as well as a stylish collection of rugs and blinds to can complement your chosen floor coverings.
