Is it just physical appeal of the rug that tempts you to buy it or do you look at the other factors to gauge the ideal pick? There could be many factors while deciding to buy a carpet for your home, right from selecting the budget, the right fibre for your carpet, the areas to be covered and the kind of traffic your carpets would be exposed to- pets, kids, high traffic etc.
Fibre types and colours: The kind of Carpet Fibre you choose will decide the cost, life and maintenance cost of your carpet. You might also be interested to check if the fibre type has all the favourite colours and shades to match you home decor. Different fibres have different shades to offer and different maintenance cost. If you have pets and kids, you might like to go for darker shades and easy to maintain carpet fibres like polyesters.
Budget: If it’s about budget control, you can go for polyester fibre carpet which is cheaper though more prone to matting and not as long lasting as its counterparts- woollen and nylon ones. You can go for Bamboo silk rugs instead of Silk rugs to save money, yet enjoy almost the same look.
Resistance to high abrasion and stains: If you have pets and kids, you might like to go for darker shades and easy to maintain carpet fibres. Some polyester carpets are not only eco friendly being made from recycled plastics) are more resilient, offer permanent resistance to stains( even pet urine stains). The strong polyester fibres offer extra strength and long term wear. And therefore, are ideal for a home with pets and small kids.
