If you’re planning some renovations or are ready to start thinking about flooring, Anita Shirley, Harrisons in-house interior designer, has put together some top tips to help you with your flooring choice:
Flooring should be the first product you choose as its one of the largest surface areas. Choose your flooring first but lay it last so it’s protected from any other renovations within your home.
A carpet or vinyl sample will look different in your home as opposed to a showroom.
Carpets generally appear around 20% lighter on the floor when installed compared to a small sample.
Darker colours absorb light and can make a room appear smaller, lighter colours reflect the light and create a sense of spaciousness.
Solution Dyed Nylon (SDN), Wool, Triexta, Polyester & Polyprop. SDN is currently the most popular because of its fade and stain resistance qualities.
Harrisons have matched all their carpets to paint colours and even curtain fabrics, helping you avoid costly design errors.
Carpet underlay absorbs all the wear and tear increasing the longevity of your carpet. A high density underlay will feel luxurious underfoot, increase sound insulation, reduces heat loss and acts as a dust barrier by reducing the flow of air, thereby reducing the dust particles carried by the air.
