Though wooden floors have become a very popular choice in recent years, some homes just don’t look right without a carpet. And regardless of whether they are right for the decor or not, there is nothing quite as cosy as stepping out of bed into a soft, luxurious carpet on a cold winter’s morning.
That said, if you are going to opt for carpet rather than a polished wooden or stone floor then it’s important to have good quality carpet that is well made and will withstand the general wear and tear that’s inevitable in a busy family home. Barker and Stonehouse have been making quality carpets for more than 65 years, and if you’re looking for Barker and Stonehouse carpets in Knaresborough, you’re in luck as the store is just about to move into brand new premises in the area.
The store will be stocking a huge range of carpets so no matter what your taste, you’re bound to find something that will complement the rest of the decor in your home. If you like to let your curtains and accessories do the talking then a plain coloured carpet or a very simple pattern will probably look best. Go for a subtle shade that won’t draw too much attention to the floor but will complement the other colours in the room.
If, on the other hand you want the floor to have a more modern, punchy look then a striped carpet could look fantastic. Beware though, full on stripes are not for the fainthearted and you need to be sure you can live with them for a long time as changing the carpet is not a quick fix. If you’re sure that stripes are for you then keep the rest of the decor simple. Opt for a fairly simple couch and choose understated cushions in the same shades as the stripes in the carpet. You could of course ignore all the style rules and have stripes with all sorts of patterned cushions and curtains. It all depends on your personality and whether this would suit the character of the house.
All Stonehouse and Barker carpets are made from the finest quality wool. Some are made with a wool/polypropylene mix and others are 100% wool, but either way you can rest assured they are warm, durable and extremely comfortable to walk on. Make sure you get them fitted by a professional carpet fitter to ensure they look their best.
