    stain proof ones are good - until an iron etc burns them, a pet digs into them...

      Negotiate? Really? How much can I expect them to drop the price?
      Thanks for the tip. I wouldn't have known one could negotiate in a big chain store.

      Btw, the prices I mentioned are what I saw in my local Carpetright.

        Blimey, you should never pay what it says on the label in carpet shops, even if it claims to be '70% off' or something equally ludicrous.

        If you are fitting out an entire property you should certainly get a discount on the label price and a good deal on underlay and fitting. See:

        http://www.carpetright.co.uk/type-ca...0-carpets.html

        Also, it pays to draw your own plan on squared paper, find out what widths your chosen carpet comes in (usually 3, 4 or 5 m) and plan out yourself approx. how much you need. Carpetright estimators are usually pretty good, but some retailers can be very generous (ie wasteful) with the amount they say you'll need.

        One of the more useful practical applications of GCSE mathematics!

          The same damage would be inflicted by irons and pets on wool, or (for that matter) on cheap cord carpets.

          I love stainproof carpets - you can chuck red wine around on light coloured floors with impunity.

            Or, as I like to call it, 'Friday night'.
