Choosing the right flooring for your Canberra home
New flooring is a significant investment in your home or business premises. If you seek a long-term flooring solution there are important aspects to consider, along with the flooring cost. Which type of flooring is best suited to your home environment in ACT? Do you have an active family household with heavy foot traffic? Are there pets and young children in your home? How cold does your home get in winter? While the cheapest flooring solutions do still result in stunning new floors, you should also consider cost-effective, long-term solutions.
Speak with the experienced team at your local store about prices, because you may be surprised to find wool carpets that cost less than synthetic, some laminate flooring that costs less than vinyl planks, and hybrid or timber flooring which may be cheaper than you expect.
Is carpet a good insulator?
Wool and synthetic carpets are good noise and temperature insulators for ACT homes. While naturally beautiful, wool carpets have long been renowned for their ability to create a cosy and comfortable ambience, innovative manufacturing techniques have created synthetic carpets which compete on all levels with natural wool.
Wool fibre carpets have natural stain and moisture resistance and are incredibly resilient when it comes to crushing and soiling. Synthetic carpets are manufactured with amazing technologies rendering them excellent long-term performers able to resist fading, crushing, staining, and soiling.
But most importantly in ACT homes, carpet offers a luxurious look and feel which contributes to the home’s insulative properties. Where floating timber flooring, vinyl planks, hybrid flooring, or laminate flooring is preferred, beautiful wool and synthetic rugs from Carpet Court’s diverse rug collection will add the insulation needed during cold weather.
Factors determining the cost of your new floor covering
There are varying factors that determine the cost of a new carpet for your home. With such a large number of carpets available from Carpet Court’s flooring ACT stores, naturally, you will also find a wide range of costs within the different carpet collections.
When costing carpet you also need to consider the cost of underlay and installation along with the size of the area you are covering, so the best method of determining the actual cost of carpet is by obtaining a free measure and quote.
As a starting point, the website’s handy $, $$ and $$$ symbols are a guide as to which category each carpet might be classified, and if you choose your favourite colour and an approximate room size from the pull-down menu you can see an estimate of the cost of the carpet itself, but it does exclude underlay and installation costs.
If your budget is more closely aligned with the $ category, you can find stunning contemporary carpets for a room of approximately 3m x 3m for under $300, excluding underlay and installation. A budget in the $$$ category will find carpets ranging between $480 and $1100 for the same size room.
Call in and chat with the experienced team at your local Carpet Court ACT store to discuss the potential flooring costs for a wide range of flooring products.
