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.

Choosing a carpet

Am I eligible to join the registry?


You can join the Be The Match bone marrow registry if you: - Are between the ages of 18-60 - Live in the United States - Meet health guidelines - Are willing to donate to a patient in need If you are between the ages of 18-44, you are especially needed because research shows that donations from younger donors lead to more successful transplants. For this reason. doctors request donors in the 18-44 age group 85% of the time. The easiest way to find out if you meet health guidelines is to start the registration process. (A list can also be found here.)




How easy is it to join the registry?


Joining the Be The Match registry is as simple as completing a 6 minute survey, opening your snail mail letter 3-7 business days later, and swabbing the inside of your cheeks using a cotton swab – swabbing is quick, easy and painless. Return the swab kit in an envelope and, Abra K Dabra, you're on the registry. You only donate bone marrow if someone is a genetic match and presently in need of a transplant. You may be their only hope for a cure.




I want to help but I'm scared of donating bone marrow. Is it risky?


Donating bone marrow is an extremely low-risk procedure. In the event that your marrow could save a life, you would first have a physical examination and a blood draw to ensure that you're the perfect match and that you are healthy enough to donate.

Though no medical procedure is without risk, there are rarely any long-term side effects. Norah herself has to get bone marrow biopsies annually to find out her risk of bone marrow failure/leukemia, a procedure that is at least as challenging as donating marrow. Discharged by lunch time after her first bone marrow biopsy, she took a two hour nap and while bruised, was dancing in the rain that evening.

There are two different methods of donating bone marrow depending upon the needs of the recipient. The majority (80%) of donors donate through a non-surgical procedure similar to a blood draw, which involves injections of a drug to increase the number of cells in your bloodstream for the 5 days leading up to the donation. The other 20% donate with a needle through a hole already in the hip while under general anesthesia, so you will feel no pain during the donation. More information can be found here.




Does the ethnicity of Norah's donor matter?


We know that the likelihood of finding a bone marrow match increases substantially along ancestry lines. For Norah, this means that we are looking more heavily for a donor with Jewish Ashkenazi ancestry, though her match may or may not end up being Jewish. We also know that many other groups are severely under-represented in the bone marrow registry, resulting in low odds of finding a donor. We are in this to help Norah and all children who need a life-saving match.




I'm not an Ashkenazi Jew, can I still help?


Yes! We don't know whether you will be Norah's match until you join the registry. Also, if you aren't a match for Norah, you might be able to save someone else's life. (Likewise, maybe Norah's match will have joined the registry through a different campaign, in honor of someone else’s loved one. Generosity begets generosity.)




Does it cost anything to join the registry?


No, if you are between the ages of 18-44 years old, you can register and donate for free.

If you are 45-60 years old, Be the Match charges you $100 to register and donate to cover their costs for you to join.*

If you are 61 years old or older, you are not able to join the registry.

*Why pay if you're 45 to 60 years old? The best, long term outcomes for bone marrow patients is with bone marrow donors who are under 45 years old. Therefore, Be the Match covers the cost to process that age group. However, sometimes recipients do not have any other options. Donations from this age group might be a patient's only chance for survival.




If I'm chosen to donate marrow, what is the recovery time?


Marrow donors should expect to return to work, school and most other activities within 1 to 7 days. Your marrow will return to normal levels within a few weeks.




Do I have to have health insurance or pay to donate if I'm chosen?


Donors between 18-44 years of age never pay for donating and are never paid to donate. All medical costs for the donation procedure are covered by the National Marrow Donor Program, which operates the Be The Match Registry, or by the patient's medical insurance, as are travel expenses and other non-medical costs. If necessary, paid time off from work (including recovery time) is also covered by Be The Match, if not covered by your employer.




I think I'm already on the registry, do you need me to sign up again?


First, please confirm. Second, if you are on the registry, make sure that they have your most up to date contact information! If they cannot reach you and you are a match, all you are giving is false hope. They must be able to reach you.

You can check if you are registered with Be The Match by calling 1 (800) MARROW-2.

You can check if you are registered with Gift of Life at https://www.giftoflife.org/page/content/am-i-registered




I'm unable to join the registry for age or medical reasons. Should I feel badly?


NO! We are Norah's parents and we are not matches for her. We think finding Norah's winning match is like finding a winning lottery ticket. It is highly unlikely that any one lottery ticket would win. However, the more lottery tickets that exist the more likely SOMEONE will win (in this case, the prize is the opportunity to save our daughter's life--the greatest lottery prize of all). Therefore, it's a numbers game. Even more important than you, yourself, joining the registry is you recruiting 10 people to do so (who then also recruit 10 people each as well...). Please help us expand the registry by encouraging others in your network to register and by hosting drives.




If I donate, will my body lose bone marrow?


No. Donating bone marrow is not like donating an organ that you don't get back. Your cells replenish themselves in 4 to 6 weeks. Because only 1 to 5% or less of your marrow is needed to save a patient’s life, your immune system stays strong.

We carry a leading range of Carpet brands :

1/1

Overlocking and binding

Gerrand Floorings have our 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 if you have internal access, surprisingly keeps the rest of your home warmer. 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.
