What types of carpet are stain resistant?
Most synthetic carpets are treated to provide excellent stain resistant properties and pure wool has a high degree of naturally-occurring stain and moisture resistant qualities.
The pile construction can contribute to the speed at which spills are absorbed into the fibres, so a loop pile carpet has a little more stain resistance than a cut pile carpet, but again it can depend on the soil prevention treatments they have received.
What colours are great for your living room carpet?
The colour of your living room carpet should fuse well with any other flooring products in your home. Living room carpet will usually meet with your kitchen or hallway floors which may be tiled or hardwood flooring. Carpet Court also provide laminate, floating timber, vinyl, hybrid and bamboo flooring products, so while you may want your feet to luxuriate in a deep, wool pile in your formal lounge, your family living or dining areas may be another flooring type.
When choosing your carpet colour, make sure the tones complement each other across the different floor surfaces.
Colour can create a mood, a fashionable look, a sense of style. Choose a colour you love, which is suitable for the amount of activity your floor will see, and which blends well with your overall colour scheme.
