Underlays and accessories

As well as working as a shock absorber, adding cushioning and comfort underfoot, a good underlay helps keep in heat and could help reduce your energy bills. Invest in a good underlay, whatever the budget for your carpet. A heavy-duty underlay will extend the life of your carpet and may even outlast it. Similarly, a cheap, poor underlay (or not using one at all) will ensure even the best carpets and floors look tired before their time and significantly underperform.

Why do you need underlay?

Underlay helps a new carpet to sit properly and wear evenly. It reduces pile compression and enables a carpet to keep its appearance for longer.Did we mention it also adds a luxurious feel under foot?Look out for an underlay with good acoustic qualities for areas with heavy footfall, particularly if you have teenagers living in the house! Underlays come with a tog rating – the higher the tog, the better the insulation. Some underlay can still be used with underfloor heating, too.
