Start with the flooring

 

Choosing your carpet is one of the most critical interior finish decisions you will make. As one of the largest areas in your home it’s the perfect place to start when deciding on your interior design scheme and our experienced and knowledgable team can guide you to finding the perfect solution to add style, warmth and comfort to your home while ensuring you achieve the look you want.

 

Read on to find out more about how to choose your carpet colour, the right style & texture for your household and what you need to know when making your fibre choice. 

Choosing a colour to work with your interior design scheme

We have the largest showroom in Tauranga/Mount Maunganui and surrounds with an extensive colour selection to ensure we can find the perfect match to enhance your interior design dreams. From entry level carpets to custom dyed the world is your oyster so to speak!

The floor is your second largest space within your home next to the walls so when choosing a colour it is important to think about the mood you are trying to create within a room as well as the practical aspects of use. Here's a great video from Cavalier Bremworth and interior designer Ursula Vlasic on choosing colour for your carpet.

Choosing a carpet style/texture to suit your needs and achieve the look you want

Knowing your cut pile from your loop pile to your sisals can be tricky to begin with so we suggest you take a look at this visual guide from Godfrey Hirst which explains each carpet style. Of course we would love to show you personally so if you would prefer to touch and feel the products contact us here to make an appointment that suits you!

Wool or Man made?

The appearance, longevity and comfort of your carpet are largely determined by the fibre type you choose.

Both wool and man made products are produced to meet industry standards and have equally deserving benefits across many aspects of their performance and expected lifetime - so it's important to identify any potential issues your family might have to consider such as harsh UV light in a particular room or allergy sufferers with your family. This means we can help guide you when comparing man made and wool options. 

Wool is the ultimate in luxurious comfort and provides a sensory experience - there's nothing quite like digging your toes into a soft plush wool carpet!  However some Solution dyed nylons are built for endurance and may be a better choice for a busy family home. 

 

Understanding the cost and carpet rating process.

Carpet is still traditionally one of the most economical forms of floor coverings on a square metre basis because it's a product that primarily is installed directly over underlay and the sub-floor surface, where most other forms of floor coverings have labour and product requirements to prepare the sub-floor surface to receive the installed product, such as vinyls for example.

 

When looking at the price of carpets, these are usually detailed as a lineal metre price. A lineal metre is 3.66m wide (12 ft old school) or some of the newer nylons are produced on a 4.0m wide loom. You should only use these prices as a guide only - what is the most important is the "on the floor" cost including a good underlay and installation.

Carpets are rated domestic and commercial (and sometimes both). Domestically in NZ carpets are generally heavy duty rated (about a 5-7 year life) and extra heavy duty rated (about a 10-15+ year life). If you have stairs in your home, also check the carpet you are looking at is stair-rated.

A good carpet will give you years and years of service. A good underlay and installation using correct methods are important aspects to this too - even more reason to put your trust in Gerrand Floorings when making your carpet and flooring decisions. Talk with our team today.

Choosing a carpet

Cavalier Bremworth

With a history spanning over 50 years, they offer the widest range of residential and commercial broadloom wool carpets, all carrying accreditation from Environmental Choice New Zealand. More than 90 percent of Cavalier Bremworth residential carpets are graded extra heavy duty, providing a significant point of difference in terms of quality and durability from others in the market.

Cavalier Bremworth design and make their carpets entirely in New Zealand using the finest New Zealand pure wool. More than half of their carpet production is exported to Australia, Asia, Europe and the US. The company operates a network of sales offices in New Zealand and across Australia.

Because quality is at the very heart of what they do, they buy the wool directly from New Zealand farmers, scour, dye and spin the yarn in their own plants and make the carpet at our Auckland tufting plant.

Cavalier Bremworth have recently been named Most Trusted Carpet Brand for the second year running by the Readers Digest Trusted Brands Survey. For the past 14 years, the Reader’s Digest Trusted Brands survey has investigated which brands in New Zealand have the best reputation among consumers – and why.

The 14th Reader’s Digest Trusted Brands survey has once again identified the products and services New Zealanders depend on to enrich their lives.

Overlocking and binding

Gerrand Floorings have their own in house overlocking service. Corners are slightly rounded as this gives a better appearance on the floor and restricts the curling of corners.  Simply bring your carpet pieces in store with the required sizes. 

Also available is carpet binding in linen, jute or leather with square or mitered corners and a bind from 50mm to 90mm wide – ask us about pricing for this custom feature.

Garage Carpet

Once you've had it, you'll never have a house without it.... Gerrand Floorings recommend a polypropylene needle punch product that won't rot and is extremely hard wearing. 

Garage Carpet gives you an extra play or work space in your home, reduces the amount of travelling dust and surprisingly keeps the rest of your home warmer with internal access. Feedback from clients confirms the added value of garage carpeting when selling or reselling a home.

Gerrand Floorings finish their garage carpet installs with a premium Cast Nosing edge strip giving a stylish and complete finish to the install.
