WHAT TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING FLOORING


KNOW YOUR BUDGET

Before you make any decisions, determine your budget. Carpet Court know flooring and can help you find the right products to meet any budget. My new Real Living range was designed to enable people to achieve a modern look and add a touch of style without breaking the bank.
CONSIDER ALL TYPES OF FLOORING

Think about how different flooring options like timber, vinyl, laminate and carpet can work in different rooms in your house. It is great to mix and match floorboards and carpet in the home. Floorboards are easy to clean and hardwearing in high traffic living zones, while carpet adds warmth and comfort to bedrooms. My new Real Living range provides options for every room in the house.
THINK ABOUT YOUR LIFESTYLE

If you have pets or young children you may want to take that into consideration when choosing flooring. As a busy mum, I understand the importance of choosing flooring that can endure everyday life and designed my Real Living range with this in mind. The friendly team at Carpet Court can provide advice on the products most suitable for your lifestyle.
PLAN THE FINISHING TOUCHES

Don’t forget to add a beautiful rug to complete the room. Rugs are a stylish addition to all types of flooring and can even be layered over carpet to achieve extra comfort.
BUDGET FOR MAINTENANCE

If you are choosing carpets, you may want to have them professionally cleaned once a year. I budget to have my carpets steam cleaned every year, that way I know they will last longer. I know there’s no hidden nasties and they always look fresh. A 4-bedroom house is around $200 to have professionally cleaned and it will increase the life of your carpet.
