    which type of carpet is best? 3rd Nov 08 at 7:51 AM
    I have all hard flooring downstairs and i dont think this is helping with me feeling the cold so after a long debate I have decided tyo get the living room carpeted but it is just so confusing!!! thought you guys may help me please??

    I am having to take the laminate up and the base will be concrete. Went into a big carpet superstore last week and told them of my dilemma and what I thought i wanted and was told straight away not to have wool but go straight for polypropelyne. I chose one and they were supposed to come and measure at a certain time span but didnt so am now looking at a smaller family run shop again locally.

    They have told me different!!! they said to go for a wool/pp mix !

    Whats the best? I am willing to spend no more than 20 per square m for carpet which at the first shop would be about 600 for the room with underlay and fitting.

    I live by myself so have no small children making it dirty although my son does occ bring his dog round! I would like a fairly pale carpet if poss. Was advised in both shops to have a short twist pile either with flecks in or without but am confused about the carpet content.

    the one I was going to have was pp and it stated that it could be cleaned with a bleach solution which sounded good . basically I want a carpet that wears well, doesnt stain and looks good. I know I am after the impossible and if I were to spill a cup of hot coffee it would stain no matter what but wanted people opinions on what to get or what to avoid.
