The perfect carpet underlay can make the world of difference to your home. The second a visitor enters your home and kicks off their shoes you want them to feel welcome and comfortable. Infuse them with this feeling the second their toes touch your brand new carpet and they’ll think they've arrived in a haven of luxury.
You've spent a lot of time and money making sure that your new carpet looks and feels perfect. You've stroked countless squares of carpet samples, and you never realised that there were so many variations of the colour beige. But if the first time you step onto your newly fitted carpet doesn't feel too dissimilar to walking on concrete due to an old or bad quality underlay then your efforts will have all been for nothing.
If you’re paying that much money on a new carpet, then you must buy a new carpet underlay. Your home deserves it, and you may regret it if you don’t.
Whilst our standard underlay is perfect for occasional use areas, it contains basic foam and we would always recommend a higher quality underlay for high traffic areas of your home like hallways or living rooms.
At AHF we have many different types of carpet underlay, each made from different materials and suitable for particular areas of your home. If you’re carpeting your entire house, it may seem easier to pick one underlay and put that everywhere, and this will work for some of our higher quality underlay, but others will have unique characteristics that make them work better in particular rooms based on their use.
Sounds complicated, but it doesn't have to be! We have experts on hand to guide you through it.
It’s very important to sit down with a member of one of our sales staff and talk about underlay. Many people will spend a lot of time choosing the carpet, and the underlay will be an after-thought. But if you don’t get the underlay right, your feet won’t thank you!
Generally, like most things in life, you get what you pay for. The more expensive underlay will offer fantastic sound and heat insulation as well as luxury underfoot comfort. Similar to springs in a mattress, underlay takes the pressure off your carpet and a great underlay can keep your carpet looking better for longer. With a combination of product care and a quality underlay from AHF, you can ensure that your carpet feels wonderful and lasts a lifetime.
