Carpet needs underlay. While it may not be the most glamorous part of your renovation, it is a vital one, and the underlay that you select can have a significant impact on the performance and longevity of your carpet. In other words, when it comes to optimal performance of your carpet, the right underlay choice is paramount.
This is true regardless of whether you’re looking to purchase a premium carpet – as the right underlay allows for a “perfect” finish – or taking a more basic, budget friendly route in terms of carpet selection – as the underlay installed beneath these carpets can really take things to the next level in terms of comfort & performance.
The type of underlay that is most appropriate will depend on your unique situation, but as a general rule, residential spaces will want to select a conventionally laid foam underlay that offers noise reduction properties alongside thermal benefits and enhanced comfort. Commercial spaces on the other hand, may be better off with a dual-bond underlay due to the increased stability of the installation. It is important to ensure that you consider what you need from an underlay before making your decision, and we always suggest testing our underlay out in-store with the help of our walk boards if you are able to do so.
