Carpets will always be a cost-effective, beautiful flooring option. It may not be suitable in certain areas such as bathrooms or kitchens, but nothing beats plush-pile underfoot softness in the bedroom, for example. Provided it suits your lifestyle, carpets could be the way to go. When handling the many requests we receive for carpet flooring in Pietermaritzburg, we like to do what we call a ‘carpet audit’. That’s a fancy way of saying we ask several questions to make sure we can advise you of the best carpeting solutions possible.
We ask questions to determine what pile, colour, grade and general style will work best. When choosing carpet flooring in Pietermaritzburg, for example, climate is a consideration. Is there enough ventilation in the room which, due to the tropical climate, will have moisture in the air more often than not? Here are some other questions you should be prepared to answer:
- What is the foot traffic like in the room where the carpet will be installed?
- What is the space used for?
- Is there direct and immediate outside access to the room?
As you may have gathered, this line of inquiry is to determine how hardworking and durable the carpet needs to be. If, for example, you want a carpet for your study area, a quiet and reserved space, you can opt for luxury and ditch some of the practical considerations.
Design audit – style, aesthetic and colour
Functionality feeds into design as well although here we are more concerned with the look, feel and fit. Likely questions from us are:
- Are pets likely to enter this room?
- How often is the room in use?
- Do you have toddlers that will roll on the floor, or drop food on the floor?
- Is the room small or spacious?
- What kind of light and light-reflecting mechanisms are in the room?
It helps if you have a basic idea of what you’d like – perhaps you’d like something bold or patterned because the room is already minimal or Scandi-chic. Carpet flooring in Pietermaritzburg is location-specific, to an extent, due to lifestyle and climate considerations too. If it’s a hard-working outdoor finish you need for a covered patio exposed to sun, this comes with unique considerations. It will also help if you bring pictures of the room or samples of other important design elements such as the wallpaper, for example.
It is also important to remember that when it comes to carpet flooring in Pietermaritzburg, given
The climate, the colour you choose will impact your mood. Do you want a look that is sheltered and shady? Or do you want to match the climate and create a tropical zone inside? Do you want something neutral to complement a light, airy, window-generous space? Think about these considerations carefully and as thoroughly as possible as your carpet choice will play quite a big role.
