Whatever style of carpet, rug or runner you need, we’ve got tips for choosing a style, brands to try and how to care for your new carpet

The hunt for the perfect style of carpet to refresh your home can be a chaotic mix of endlessly scrolling through Pinterest and wandering aimlessly around homeware shops. But it doesn’t have to be that way, says Steve Harley at Harley Carpets.

Whether you want to modernise a room with contemporary carpeting in a bold geometric pattern or bring an exotic twist to spice up your room with a traditional Moroccan rug, there is something out there for your house. Keep your eye out on social media for initial ideas and inspiration, and then seek out some professional guidance.

With expert advice at hand, selecting the perfect carpet can be an exciting part of the creative process of redecorating a space. Finding a retailer that provides excellent one-on-one consultancy is a good way to explore a range of options and selecting the one that’s right for you.

Whether you want a stylish, colourful Roger Oates runner for your stairs, a luxurious broadloom fitted carpet from Jacaranda or ITC, all of which can be made into beautiful rugs, opt for style and superior materials over a mainstream alternative. These types of high quality heritage brands tie in centuries of skill with traditional and contemporary design elements.

Once you’ve found the one that’s right for you, taking care of a new carpet or rug is important to keep the room feeling fresh. Making sure to deal with minor spills and stains promptly is important and vacuuming regularly can make sure dirt and bacteria doesn’t build up too much. Then occasional steam cleaning is recommended to deal with tougher stains and allergens, especially for families with pets and children.

Rather than paying for a professional cleaner which can be inconvenient and expensive, hiring a machine yourself is a handy solution. Leave tougher repairs to the professionals though!
