Q I’m a firm be­liever in car­pet for bed­rooms, but won­dered what would be the best type for a child’s room?

Emily, via email “The big­gest con­sid­er­a­tion is whether the car­pet is stain re­sis­tant and durable,” says In­grid Pow­ell, dig­i­tal man­ager at Choices Floor­ing. “Ny­lon, so­lu­tion-dyed ny­lon and Triexta car­pets are ‘fam­ily friendly’, with ex­cel­lent stain, wear and abra­sive re­sis­tance (while we love wool, it’s not as kid friendly). These in­clude the Brease car­pet range, de­vel­oped for those with asthma or al­ler­gies. Prac­ti­cal­ity, colour and style should also be con­sid­ered. Twist car­pet is easy to main­tain, but toys may snag the loops which can cause wear and tear. Darker-coloured car­pets will also help cover up spills.”
