Buying Guide

Planning ahead

Helping you choose the perfect carpet for your family and lifestyle is our priority, so we’ve pulled together a list of the most important things to consider before you head to the retailer.

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 all our Bremworth & Aspire Collection carpets. 

STEP 4

Going natural


For carpet with superior design and performance on your floor, wool is the natural choice of fibre.


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% biodegradable and sustainable, making it better for our planet.

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.

Order samples


If you want to get a head start on selecting your favourite carpet, use our free online sample service for delivery to our door. A quick tip: once it's installed, your new carpet will generally appear about 20% lighter than the sample.

Step 8

THINGS TO NOTE IN-STORE

If you need your new carpet urgently, ask the salesperson to put on a 48 hour hold if it is in stock. 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.
