Kids & Carpets: A buying guide – choosing kid-friendly carpet
15 April 2013Trends
When you have children, there are certain considerations that take priority when selecting flooring. Carpet is a great option that provides a soft and comfortable surface for children to play on. We are really spoilt for choice when it comes to carpets, and selecting the right carpet for your family home is a purchase that should be made carefully.
Here are a few tips to keep in mind when making your decision:
1. Is it practical?
Family life can be demanding on your carpets, which is why the durability and stain-resistance are key things to look out for in family friendly carpet.
2. What if my child has allergies?
Choosing a natural fibre carpet like wool can be a better option if anyone in your family suffers from allergies as they are naturally hypoallergenic and antimicrobial.
3. Is it comfortable?
Whether it’s for floor time with your baby, or you have young children playing on the floor with their toys, soft and comfortable carpet is a must. Softer carpet also helps make a quieter environment.
4. How about aesthetics?
Take into consideration which room the carpet is for, the flooring of other rooms in the house and any changes to the room that may occur in the near future. These considerations will help determine colours and patterns that you prefer.
Take your time to make the right choice, it may take a little while but will be worth it to assure a safe and comfortable home for your family.

What Our Customers are Saying
Jared and Cassandra are hard working, cheerful, honest business partners. They made my experience of choosing carpet and then laying 5 rooms of it simple and convenient. I also had plenty of choice of colour and style from their extensive range. The measure and quote was done in a timely, efficient manner and Jared is very personable. They even quoted, then organised, the shifting and replacement of furniture on the day. I am very impressed with Andersens at Burleigh Heads. Sincerely, thank you both.
