Such A Great Choice

It is worth considering what kind of floor you are covering when choosing an underlay. For stone and concrete floors a firm covering is needed to mask any unevenness. This will also reduce the indentation marks heavy furniture leave in the carpet.

This type of basis for a carpet will also prevent the stretching and rucking of carpet and thus reducing its life. If your underlay is too thin on these types of floor, the pile of the floor covering is squeezed against the sub-floor causing it to flatten over time.

If you are buying a covering for your stairs, underlay4u recommends a heavy duty carpet that can withstand heavy traffic that these places generate. The underlay should also be flat and firm.

For wooden floors rubber and felt thick materials are best. Remember that wood has grooves through which dust can penetrate the carpet, causing unsightly lines which are difficult to get rid of. It is wise that prior to covering the floor tape is used which is especially manufactured to seal any such grooves. Other areas that should also be sealed are the gaps between floor boards and skirting board.

If your room is small then a light coloured carpet will open the space up and it will appear to look bigger. However, nowadays stripes are very popular, but it must be remembered that this is a very contemporary look and your room may look dated very quickly. If you are rich enough, this might not be a problem as you will be able to change your floor covering more often.
