COSTS: Manufacturing a woven "Axminster" with an intricate design and many colours is a lengthy and generally a considerably more expensive process than producing a "Tufted" plain carpet. Therefore, be prepared to pay an appreciably higher price for such a product that by virtue of its construction will give many years of service.

With tufted carpets there is an immense choice of quality, colour, width and price so ensure that the area in question is professionally measured and planned out. A higher priced carpet per m2 may well work out less expensive than a cheaper one if it is made in several different widths thereby reducing waste.

(Remember - decide upon which carpet after the measure has been done including all the materials. You are buying a package with a service not just a "price point")
