Planning ahead

Step 1

COLOUR

The appearance of colour can change in different environments, so it’s important to view your chosen sample under daylight and artificial light before making your final decision. And remember; darker colours can make a room appear smaller, whereas lighter colours can create a sense of spaciousness.

Step 2

PRICE & WARRANTY

Carpet is one of the most affordable flooring options. It's usually quoted in linear metres (1m long x 3.66m wide – the dimensions of a standard carpet roll). To convert to square metres, divide by 3.66.

All Bremworth carpets come with an extensive 6 point warranty package. It's important to read the terms and conditions to ensure you understand what is included and how to care for your carpet.

Step 3

DURABILITY & GRADING

Rest assured, all our carpets are exceptionally durable. The best way to measure durability is to look for an independent grading like the Australian Carpet Classification Scheme (ACCS) Residential Extra Heavy Duty Plus Stairs, 6 Star Grade label that you'll find on the back of most of our samples.

Step 4

GOING NATURAL

Did you know synthetic carpet fibres are plastic? Wool is a high performing natural alternative to plastic fibres.

Not only is it hard-wearing and luxurious underfoot, wool is hypoallergenic, stain resistant, fire resistant and helps to create a warm, dry and healthy home.

Wool is also 100% natural, renewable and biodegradable.

Step 5

CHOOSING THE RIGHT STYLE

CUT PILES
Cut pile carpets are incredibly luxurious underfoot. Depending on the fibre type, some cut pile carpets show footprints – called tracking – (which generally vacuum out) and plusher cuts can show permanent shading, which you can read more about in our carpet care section. A quick tip – if you have cats that like to scratch or claw the floor, a cut pile carpet is your best option.

LOOP PILES
Loop pile carpets offer an array of stylish textures and designs, ranging from a minimalist appearance through to bold, unique patterns. Although loop pile carpets don’t show tracking and shading like cut pile carpets, they can still show traffic patterns in areas of the home that are repeatedly walked over in the same area (i.e. hallways).

Step 6

LIFESTYLE NEEDS

Kids? Pets? We're here to match you with the ideal carpet for your lifestyle. There's an option for every home, so we’ve created a Carpet Selector Tool to help narrow down your search.

THINGS TO NOTE IN-STORE

Before you head in store, don't forget your floor plan for the retailer to provide a measure and quote.

Another piece to the puzzle is underlay - it will make your carpet feel more luxurious, last longer and as with most things, you get what you pay for.

Lastly we recommend your carpet is installed in accordance with the New Zealand Standard NZS 2455.1:2007 by a certified carpet layer.
