At Steve’s Carpets, we regularly welcome customers from the Medway area looking to breathe new life into their property through the addition of new carpets, vinyl flooring and wood flooring. With an extensive range of products to choose from, sourced from top brands including Karndean and Amtico Flooring, we’re sure to have what you need. But if it’s your first time shopping for carpets and flooring, what should you be keeping in mind?
3 Things to Consider When Investing in Carpets & Flooring
Learn the Basics – There are many different terms which flooring companies use to refer to various types of products. Laminate flooring is different from luxury vinyl flooring (e.g Karndean flooring and Amtico flooring products), for example. Then there’s the crucial differences between engineered and hardwood flooring which Medway clients should accustom themselves with. What about carpets? Perhaps the most confusing! There’s twist, pile, velvet, cut and loop and many other styles, each with their own strengths and potential drawbacks. If you want a rundown from general professionals, consider speaking with the team at Steve’s Carpets – we aim to make shopping for carpets and flooring as simple and straightforward as possible.
Know the Space – One thing that carpets, vinyl flooring and wood flooring have in common is the fact they each need to be picked to match the precise specifications of a space. For example, Medway property owners should consider how much foot traffic there is in the room or hallway they’re kitting out, in order to pick something that is suitably durable. Then there’s the need to choose the right selection to complement the immediate environment (fixtures, features, paint schemes, wall papers, etc). This shouldn’t be a challenge when you visit Steve’s Carpets, as we stock brands such as Amtico flooring or Karndean flooring, where there’s always a huge range of colours and patterns to pick from.
Set a Budget – When you visit a retailer like our own near Medway, it can be easy to get lost in and carried away with the products on display. But our carpets, vinyl flooring and wood flooring products cover a wide range of price points, so it’s well worth to consider your budget ahead of time; the alternative could mean overspending, meaning you have to cut back on other facets of your project, whether it be a simple room makeover, or something like an extension or refurbishment.
