Whether you’ve just moved into your new home and looking to get it done up, or you’re simply looking for new flooring to give your home a refresh, a great deal of care needs to be taken with your decisions. With over 60 years of experience, we’ve picked up a few things and wanted to share our top three flooring mistakes that you’ll want to avoid.

Carpet weight isn’t everything!

A lot of people tend to get caught up in believing that a heavier carpet is a better quality carpet.. Contrary to popular belief, the weight of a carpet isn’t the most crucial indicator of quality, as new fibre and backing technology has introduced some fantastic new innovations to the industry in recent years. In fact, there are lots of other factors to consider when choosing which carpet is going to be the best quality. 

These can include the fibre type, the fibre twist and the carpet style. Luckily for Wall Bros customers, our award-winning team of flooring experts are on hand to assist you with every step of choosing the right carpet.

Neglecting the underlay

Understandably, customers tend to spend most of their decision-making time choosing the floor covering. It’s the visible part of the flooring and therefore seemingly the most important part. However, did you know that a good underlay can improve the life of the floor covering? It can also make your home warmer and can be a fantastic sound attenuator too, significantly reducing noise and saving energy at the same time.. 

A lot of people don’t realise that these are the benefits having a good underlay can bring. A few extra pounds spent on the right underlay could save much more on your fuel bill, so taking time to consider which underlay to have will have a positive impact on more than just your floor covering. Our team of flooring experts are more than happy to advise on which underlay to pair with the floor covering of your choice.

Not using samples

We truly believe that purchasing flooring is a tangible experience. You need to be able to see the flooring for yourself and feel it. Which is why we always recommend coming into our Worthing or Storrington showroom to see our ranges and speak to our friendly team. Once the flooring ranges have been seen though, it’s also important to see what they look like in situ. You are welcome to bring in soft furnishings to see how they will match with different flooring types and colours. We can also provide samples for all of the flooring that is on display in our showrooms and customers can take them to see what they look like in their homes. 

If you’re looking for new flooring for your home, visit our Worthing or Storrington showroom to see all of our ranges and speak to our team of flooring experts. We’re always happy to give advice and suggest flooring solutions.
