The best-selling underlays of 2022
Looking to buy new underlay?
You’re certainly in the right place.
Carpet Underlay Shop is the UK’s leading supplier and, every year, we go from strength to strength. Since January 2022, over half a million customers have visited our online store. Why? Because we offer the best underlays that money can buy, at the most competitive prices.
Here we’ve rounded up the official top five underlays of the last 12 months.
Not surprisingly, these are the ones that we often recommend for both home and commercial projects. The underlays that are worth talking about (and adding to your basket!).
So why not take a look? Bag yourself a best-seller and become one of the thousands of happy customers to purchase underlay from our store and receive a 5* service.
Regarded as the ‘gold standard’, Plushwalk 12mm is (by far) the best carpet underlay currently available. And it seems our customers agree, as it was our no.1 best-selling product of 2022.
Made from a unique ‘bounce back’ memory foam, this impressive underlay excels in terms of its comfort levels, durability and performance.
Not only will it greatly enhance the look and feel of your carpet, it will significantly extend its lifespan. And it’s available for just £6.99 per m2.
Little wonder then, that it flew off our shelves last year – and pretty much every year before that!
Admittedly, when it comes to the ‘best laminate underlay’, our first recommendation is Royale 7mm Professional Sonic Gold Underlay.
However, priced at £7.98 per m2, this does fall a little on the expensive side. Which is why, Royale Sonic Gold 5mm is actually the best-seller in our ‘wood and laminate’ range and our overall second best-selling product of 2022.
By comparison, this costs just £1.98 per m2 – making it a lot more budget-friendly. Yet it’s still a high-performance underlay, with many fantastic features and properties.
A popular choice among savvy homeowners.
It may not be the ‘best’ carpet underlay currently on the market, but Cloud 9 Cumulus is certainly a very popular option amongst our customers – securing the third spot in our line-up of best-selling products.
And it’s easy to understand why.
Made from 11mm PU foam, it can successfully reduce impact and airborne noise by up to 43db, it has a high 3.1 TOG and demonstrates an exceptional comfort rating of 5. Yet, despite these excellent qualities, it’s available for the incredibly affordable price of just £5.12 per m2.
Fantastic value for money, for a fantastic underlay that’s well-known and respected in the flooring industry.
ThermalStream is one of our more expensive carpet underlays, costing £8.50 per m2. Yet it’s still managed to rank in our top 5 best-sellers of the last year, which says a lot for its quality and performance.
Boasting a 10mm foam construction, it’s one of (if not the) thickest underlay on the market for use with underfloor heating – creating wonderful levels of underfoot softness and cosiness.
However, thanks to its unique punched hole design, it encourages airflow and maximises heat transfer – making it a highly practical choice too.
A revolutionary product, that’s worth every penny for its impressive and useful features.
Luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) have boomed in popularity over the last couple of years. Which means, in turn, LVT underlay has increased in popularity too. And this one has become a firm favourite.
Manufactured from impact-resistant toughened foam, with a silver foil backing, it boasts a range of great properties – reducing noise by up to 20dB, providing excellent thermal insulation and protecting the LVT from dampness.
Available for £3.60 per m2, this is by far the best underlay for LVT click flooring – notably improving its final look and feel and extending its lifespan, whilst also being superb value for money.
