The right carpet can have a dramatic effect on a room by adding colour, warmth and comfort. Carpet also has natural sound-reducing properties that are particularly useful in areas such as upper-floor bedrooms and hallways of multi-storey homes.

You can choose to have carpet blend with your existing décor or make an impression that really stands out. When selecting your carpet, keep in mind the traffic flow of your home. If pets shed dark hair and the children are constantly on the go, you may want to pass on lighter colours and select a darker one. Perhaps you may also want to consider a carpet with a detailed pattern to enhance the room’s visual appearance.
