Choosing a carpet for your home is just a small piece of the overall jigsaw. Forget about which carpet brands you decide to go with, or which carpet patterns work best, because if you fail to install a decent underlay then it will have all been in vain.
Along with purchasing a new carpet, the underlay is the other most important factor to take into consideration. Its addition could help prolong the lifespan of your carpet, while providing it with some much-needed support and comfort to help you get the most out of your new investment.
Underlay also provides various benefits such as thermal insulation, sound proofing, and can even insulate against dust and drafts. Furthermore, underlay can also increase the aesthetic appeal of a room through raising the level of the floor and preventing it from buckling under pressure.
