Choosing a new carpet as a homeowner can be a difficult decision to make, but also being a pet owner means that there is even more to consider. So, we at Berwicks Of Horsham thought that we would use this blog post as a chance to let pet owners know the most important things to consider when purchasing a new carpet.
Owning a pet means that your carpet is likely to experience more wear and tear than it would in a household with no extra inhabitants. This means that you must choose a carpet that is resistant to the extra use that it will get. As a result, it is likely that you will need to take a look at some luxury carpets as these are typically more hardwearing. Most luxury carpets are also stain resistant, a feature that will come in handy should any unwanted accidents occur.
A carpet’s texture is also something that is extremely important to consider. This is because it is not uncommon for pets such as cats and dogs to scratch and try to dig into the carpet. If the carpet you choose has a texture that is inclined to get caught in claws, then damage not only to your carpet but potentially to your pet may occur.
Colour also needs to be thought about once you have decided on the type of carpet that you would like. This is because if your pet malts, you do not want it to be visible. By choosing a carpet that matches the colour of your pet’s fur, the malting will become far less noticeable, thus reducing the impact on the overall aesthetic of the room.
