The new style soft carpet…. luxury feel, look and comfort in carpet!

Carpet trends have changed hugely over the years.

Carpets are now in general a much plainer finish. The most popular carpets are coloured in beiges and greys. The new ‘griege’ colours have taken carpet market by storm in the last two to three years.

We are now seeing a move back to soft and pretty colours in 2017. Teal is being very well used in the new and stunning curtain fabrics for spring 2017.

An exciting burst into the carpet market has been the development of the super soft carpet. ‘Softies’ as they are now fondly termed!

If you remember the days of the ‘shag pile carpet’ you will recall how amazingly popular they were. Soft carpet is very much echoing that success. With some carpet manufacturers now reporting that 65% of their total carpet sales in volume are made in super soft carpet yarn.

These carpets are made from man-made fibres and most commonly in nylon or polypropylene.

Nylon carpet fibres are incredibly durable and they now have an anti-crush property. This helps to keep the appearance of the carpet as well as is possible.

Polypropylene is a highly stain-resistant carpet fibre. When carpets are made from 100% of this particular carpet fibre they are bleachable. Yes, that is 100% neat bleach proof!!! It helps to create a carpet which is so stain resistant. In fact, there are manufacturers who will guarantee the carpets stain resistance for 15 years and more!!

All luxury carpets like these are subject to a little more flattening than the shorter and still very popular twist pile carpet. But with a bit thought given to the type of carpet colour that you would like to use. It is possible to thoroughly enjoy a ‘softie’ carpet for many years to come.

Lighter shades of carpet tend to show a little more in the way of footfall and vacuuming marks, darker carpet colours show less of these and consequently hide more of the wear and tear on the carpet that will occur in any room. Light carpet colours add a feeling of space to a room so you are bound to be tempted to use a carpet of a lighter tone.

If you fancy a paler coloured carpet then take a bit of advice on the type of soft carpet that you should select in order to get the overall performance out of your carpet that will match your expectations. Speak to Steve, Stu, Tim or Amanda and they will be very happy to help you select a new carpet that you will be delighted with.

Selecting a new flooring should be fun, inspiring and informative.
