4 way Stretch vs Carpet
4 way stretch lining is the most convenient way to carpet your van compared to using thicker carpeting, it is ideal for DIY projects as beginners to upholstery can lay this carpet reasonably easily. Even though thicker carpeting may feel more premium, it does not stretch to accommodate any curves or corners. Thick carpet needs to be measured and trimmed to size to achieve the fitted effect of stretch lining carpet, as there is less flexibility this could cause the rigid carpet to come away from the edge and possibly rip.
