We, and our Consumer Code of Practice approved by the TSI, recommend that new carpet underlay is bought with every new carpet. The reasons for this are:

Underlay is vital for a new carpet to sit properly and wear evenly

It improves the feel of the carpet underfoot and helps with that ‘luxury’ feel

It increases heat and sound insulation and can reduce energy costs

It reduces pile compression and so enables a carpet to retain its appearance for longer

Noise insulation. Acoustics are considerably improved with carpet and underlay while impact noise is reduced

New underlay can increase the life of your carpet by forty per cent

At world of carpets we supply a range of underlay.  Our qualified home consultant will advise on which underlay type is most suitable for your room and floor type.
