The benefits of choosing carpet for your home

When it comes to carpet, it’s not just about style. Of course you want to opt for something that complements your décor, but it’s also important to make sure your carpet is fit for purpose.

For example, for family homes or those with pets, a bleach-cleanable option might be ideal. Hypoallergenic carpet is good for those who suffer from dust allergies, while high-traffic areas (such as staircases) will need a more durable carpet type than other areas of your home.

Easy to maintain

Carpet is very easy to look after and keep fresh, with regular vacuuming and the occasional deep-cleaning carpet shampoo. We also supply and fit a range of bleach-cleanable carpet options, which are ideal for homes with pets or children.

Versatile and stylish

We will take the time to get to know your needs and understand your style, to recommend the best carpet to suit your tastes. Whether you like bold, vibrant colours, elegant neutral tones, or even a distinctive pattern, we can fit the perfect carpet to complement your home.


We’ll ensure your carpet is tested and certified in accordance with EN 1307, which sets the standard for carpet durability and long-term appearance retention. With the right choice and maintenance, a high-quality carpet can be enjoyed in your home for many years to come.


Carpet offers more traction than hard flooring, which can become wet and slippery. For this reason, carpet is often a popular choice for stairs.

Energy efficient

Carpet fibres act as natural thermal insulators and retain heat better than hard flooring. For a cosy, welcoming space that also saves money on your energy bill, carpets are the way to go.

Noise reducing

Carpets are a good choice for bedrooms and other upstairs rooms, because of their noise-reducing properties. Soften the sound of footsteps overhead, and improve your home’s acoustics in style with new carpets expertly fitted by the team at Marisco.

How to choose the right carpet for your home

There are several factors to consider when choosing the right carpet for your home. As well as appearance, it’s worth thinking about warmth and feel underfoot – for example, most people opt for a softer pile and more luxurious feel in the bedroom. High-traffic areas, such as hallways and stairs require a more dense, tight, low-pile tuft.

Wool carpets, while sometimes a slightly more expensive choice, provide quality and have naturally hypoallergenic properties.

Also, it’s worth considering how you’d like to maintain your carpets. If you’re likely to be cleaning up spills or pet accidents, bleach-cleanable carpets are the ideal choice. Speak to us today on 01202 474001 and we can help you find the right carpet for your home.

Residential carpet installation FAQs

How long does it take to install carpet in my home?
This will typically depend on the number and size of the rooms. Once we’ve visited your home and measured the space, we’ll be able to give you clearer timeframes.
How often should I have my carpets cleaned?
This will generally depend on the amount of foot traffic, how many people live in your home, and whether you have pets. On average, we recommend a professional deep carpet clean at least once a year, but you may wish to be flexible with this.
How long will my carpet last?
This depends on how well you look after your carpet, as well as its thickness and pile. You can expect your carpet to have a lifespan of between ten and thirty years, and we can help you find the best option for your home.
What is the most durable type of carpet?
Nylon carpets offer the greatest durability and stain resistance, making it ideal for high-traffic areas like stairs.
Is carpet suitable for kitchens and bathrooms?
Generally, we advise against carpet in rooms with high moisture levels or where spills are more likely to occur. For this reason, we’d suggest that carpet isn’t suitable for bathrooms or kitchens.
