As winter approaches there is nothing worse than waking up from a restful night’s sleep, only to find your feet on a cold floor. We need to start to thinking about warming our homes, a simple and easy way to do this, is to add carpet. Wool carpet is a great option as it instantly transforms your room into a cozy, comfortable and welcoming environment for many years to come.

At Cross Carpets we have generations of expertise and experience helping thousands of Australian families enhance their homes with wool carpet. For decades people have chosen to lay carpet throughout the living areas of the homes and there are a number of reasons why. Carpet adds sophistication and a sense of luxury while also creating a peaceful environment to unwind and relax.   

There are a number of ways to add warmth to your home.

Here are a few helpful tips:

  • Lay wall to wall wool carpet in all living areas such as bedrooms, living room and entertainment rooms
  • Use warm colour tones such as cream as this can add a greater sense of warmth, compared to grey tones
  • Wall to wall carpet assists with reducing drafts coming from underneath the doors
  • Add thick foam underlay as it adds a cushioned buffer between the subfloor and your carpet
  • Quality underlay will also help retain heat loss
