I could have asked that question . Have seen websites selling the sisal-jute-seagrass etc. for as little as £9 m2 ex VAT but wondering about the fitting cost? We have rubber underlay (at leat it was on the downstairs hallway where we ripped up the hideous carpet) and it seemed in a good condition. Do we need to change that to a different underlay? Which one of the natural carpeting options is the best, most durable and comfortable underfoot as well? Thanks in advance!
NAtural floorings arent recommended I think for halls and stairs as they are hard to clean and are too slippery for stairs. You would be better off getting a wool mix. No reason to put in new underlay if the old one is decent, will save you quite a bit.
Hard to comment on price as it really depends on size of hall/no of stairs etc, but we spent around £850 on last house but that was stairs/landing only, wool mix with bound edges (we had a stair runner) and new underlay.
Wool mix is often cheaper Pavlov if you shop around (try small, local indepenent shops rather than chains). We recently had some put in and it was around £12m (minus underlay and fitting) but am pretty sure that is less than natural floorings...
