Rooms come in all shapes and sizes and a well fitted carpet can enhance any space. Depending on the construction or type of carpet you have chosen, you’ll need:
- carpet tape or gripper rod around the parameter to secure the carpet;
- a quality underlay for comfort and to prolong the life of your carpet;
- door-bars or strips to neaten the edges between different types of flooring.
Carpet usually comes in a maximum width of 4 metres. An experienced carpet fitter can pattern match and join pieces of carpet together seamlessly to form an imperceptible joint in large or open plan areas. They can also stretch and tightly fit the carpet which will extend the life of the carpet.
