How can I make my carpet purchase cheaper?
If you have a low traffic room then you do not need to select a heavyweight carpet.
If your rooms are difficult sizes then we may be able to assist you by emailing us a diagram drawing of your room/s with dimensions and we can then help minimise expensive wastage.
Sometimes if you use 4 metre carpets, the fitter can place the seam in an unobtrusive place and you can then avoid the heavy wastage sometimes involved with 5 metre carpet
What factors influence the weight of yarn in the carpet?
Quality of yarn. In the case of wool carpets this can vary from fine light New Zealand wool capable of taking beautiful pastel shades to much coarser darker wools from Southern Europe.
Tuft density. Carpet machines work much in the way as sewing machines by inserting yarn in stitches. A 1/10" gauge machine will insert 100 stitches per square inch as opposed to a 1/8" gauge machine with 64 stitches per square inch. This process produces a more durable and luxurious finish as the fibres tend to be more compact, perfect for high traffic areas with more yarn to take the weight. 1/10th gauge tends to be the BMW of the carpet world, a higher end product.
Pile length. The carpet manufacturer balances pile lengths dependant on the required characteristics including use, aesthetic look and effect and of course the price point.
