How to Get a Great Deal on a Brand New Carpet
It is a good thing that most people do not have to buy new carpets all that often, because they can be a real strain on the wallet. We tend to disregard flooring when thinking about what makes a home, as it is entirely functional – we could not live without it, but it does not hold the same excitement as sofas, cabinets, television stands, or fancy light fittings.
Yet, if you end up picking the wrong type of carpet, people notice immediately. You might feel like the room does not match or blend together properly. It might look out of place or odd. So, evidently, great flooring can make a huge difference to the overall look and feel of a home. For top quality carpets, which are durable and affordable, why not pop into Carpet Connection today.

Knowing What You Want
Obviously, you will probably have a good idea about what you want your carpet to look like before you get to the carpet shop, even if you do not know the official names for any of the patterns or styles. You do not really need this knowledge to shop efficiently, so do not worry about distinguishing your Axminster from your Wilton – as long as you can describe the look that you are going for, it should not be a problem.
Making Your Intentions Clear
The trick to securing a great deal is being clear and firm about your intentions, whilst also being polite, of course. So, just like any other kind of store, if you visit and look like you know what you want, what you are planning to do with it, and how much you are expecting it to cost, you are much more likely to leave with a top purchase.
Checking Things Out
You are advised to say days, instead of ‘today,’ because it is always best to take samples from a carpet stop home with you first before you make a purchase. This can be frustrating, especially if you are really keen to take carpet home immediately, but the reality is that the lighting in the store will very different from the lighting in your house. The last thing that you want is to invest in a new floor, get it home, and realise that you do not like it as much as you thought you would.
Break Down The Costs
It is important to remember that there are additional costs when you buy a new carpet; underlay, fitting, and gripper rods should be taken into account. You can ask in our carpet shop to itemise your bill when we’re putting together an estimate, so that you know how much you are paying out for each component. If you know this, you can figure out where to make savings. For instance, you could supply your own gripper rods and underlay – if the ones from your old carpet as still in good condition, there is no need to replace them anyway.
