Carpeted stairs: the pros and cons

The pros
Extra grip
We’ve all slipped around a little on a polished wooden floor. Going up and down a slippery wooden staircase requires focus and a bit of caution – especially if you’re wearing socks! Wellington carpets can provide a bit of much-needed friction between your feet. Your Wellington flooring experts would suggest adding at least a strip of carpet to such slippery stairs in order to ensure a little more safety when travelling between the levels of your home.

In order to achieve this transformation, corners tend to be cut; walls are painted and insulation is stuffed into walls and roofs in the hope of achieving some semblance of shininess, newness and warmth. Unfortunately, renovations really ought to start from the ground up if they are to be effective, both stylishly and practically.

And by the ground up, we, of course, mean your carpets!

The top reasons why you haven’t updated your Wellington carpets (yet)

We’re two months into 2019, can you believe it? Was this the year that you promised you’d get stuck into some much-needed renovations? No matter how much you paint and polish your house, or how many fancy new furnishings you install, nothing refreshes a home quite like a fresh floor of Wellington carpets.
