For a durable, quiet underfoot and well insulated
floor covering, you can’t go past carpet. But buying carpet is not as simple as
walking in, choosing one and then walking back out. It’s generally not a cheap
item to buy and install, but armed with the information below we believe you
can avoid making an expensive mistake and end up with a carpet you’ll love.
Size of the
area, budget and traffic of the space will factor into which fabric you choose,
but we believe that also knowing the pros and cons of each fabric matter too. Wool carpet is the it’s warm, durable and naturally stain-resistant. Nylon is a
hard-working, cheaper alternative that resists cleaning and sunlight staining
and is ideal for children and pets and if you find a well made one, it can look
luxurious. Polypropylene / polyester is synthetic and cheap and it looks it,
but it’s good for playrooms that are likely to end up covered in stains and
mess anyways or investment properties. Wool/Nylon blends are a slightly more
budget-friendly option that are durable and high quality.
Pick your colours wisely
Show rooms like Newcastle Carpet One have a wide range of colour options to choose
from and while your aesthetic should definitely be taken into account, there’s
other factors to consider. Lighter colours make small rooms look larger, but
show stains more easily, while dark colours hide stains but show lint. Speckled
carpets hide stains and lint but people often complain that they always look
dirty. We highly recommend visiting a showroom and trampling across carpet
samples a few times, as online colours aren’t always true to life and won’t show
you what lint or stains will look like on your chosen colour.
Newcastle Carpet One is an exclusive stockists of the acclaimed Bremworth Collection in Newcastle. The range of high quality wool carpets brings an extra element of luxury to our already extensive range of products for those that want to spoil themselves.
So why should you choose wool carpet? Here’s 12 reasons from Cavalier Bremworth on why wool is a great choice for carpeting your home or business.
WOOL IS A 100% SUSTAINABLE, RECYCLABLE AND BIODEGRADABLE FIBRE o This product uses 100% pure New Zealand Wool fibre. From the farm gate to the floor we control the process, ensuring the highest quality wool every step of the way.
ACCS ENVIRONMENTAL ACCREDITATION (ECS) o We’ve achieved the highest environmental grading – ECS Level 4, contributing valuable points towards both materials and indoor air quality under the Green Star office rating system.
ACCS RESIDENTIAL PERFORMANCE RATING o This product has achieved an ACCS Residential Extra Heavy Duty plus Stairs 6* rating making it the perfect choice if quality and performance are important
BEAUTIFULLY SOFT UNDERFOOT o Warm and comforting, soft and luxurious – wool carpet provides an unmatched sensory experience.
FIRE RESISTANT o Wool is the safest carpet fibre because it’s the most difficult to ignite, it burns slowly and is easy to extinguish.
IT BREATHES o Wool naturally absorbs and releases moisture from the atmosphere, helping regulate humidity to create a more comfortable living environment.
NATURALLY ANTI-STATIC o Wool naturally repels static charge.
NATURALLY BEAUTIFUL o We use only the finest grades of New Zealand wool to bring you the purest shades of colour. Wool’s unique spiral crimp provides natural bounce-back properties, which means your carpet will retain its looks for longer.
NATURALLY NON-ALLERGENIC o Wool carpets are non-allergenic and they filter the unwanted toxins and odours that can cause irritation. Wool carpet binds allergy-causing substances tightly, preventing them from entering the breathing zone.
NATURALLY STAIN RESISTANT o Wool has a very thin, waxy coating bonded to the surface, which naturally repels water – giving you time to wipe spills up before they become a stain.
PROUDLY GROWN IN NEW ZEALAND o We only buy wool from New Zealand farmers. We then scour, dye and spin the yarn in our Napier and Whanganui plants before it’s tufted into carpet in Papatoetoe, Auckland.
VERY DURABLE o 15 year abrasive wear warranty* This carpet is made to last – we warrant that the surface pile of your carpet will not lose more than 10% of its fibre due to abrasive wear within 15 years.
