It’s here! After years of bringing UK homes the best in wood, laminate and vinyl flooring, UK Flooring Direct has introduced carpets to boost its versatile product selection. Keen to explore the fibres and colourways on offer, the Inspiration Centre was invited down to UK Flooring Direct HQ to give them the once over!
One thing is for sure: you won’t be wanting for choice. The brand seems mighty proud with its newest products, Managing Director Jason Ashby explaining, “We are delighted with our latest introduction – carpet – at UK Flooring Direct, and are looking forward to seeing these designs making their way into homes up and down the country”.
“The range spans polypropylene, polyamide and of course wool, so whether the homeowner prioritises wear, stain resistance, affordability or silky softness, a look of sophistication and elegance can be achieved.”
From the stark tonal contrasts of Kent House to the vintage beauty of Crown Wilton, picking a carpet collection from UK Flooring Direct is a treat for all the senses. The company has done its homework with the carpet looks on offer, from traditional creams and beiges to the trend-led greys of Snow Screen, Royal Silver and Gothic Stone - you really are spoiled.
As fun as colour and design are, it is easy to neglect other factors when choosing a carpet. It is vital to choose a fibre that is suited to your home’s needs, so read on if you’d like to know more about practical aspects of the soft floor covering.
Polypropylene is a fantastic option for family homes that are prone to a little mess, and UK Flooring Direct stocks an amazing 12 collections in this fibre! Children, pets, even adults are prone to spillages here and there, but with polypropylene, its easy-clean properties and stain warranties of up to 20 years, you’re in safe hands. Polyprop is equally a cost effective way to gain a look, so those on a budget are sure to find more choice than they bargained for.
Alternatively, polyamide could be the carpet fibre for you. Polyamide is slightly more hardwearing than polypropylene while bringing a soft, silk-like lustre to bedrooms and living rooms everywhere, caressing to the bare foot and bringing a distinctive shimmer in appearance. Newhaven is UK Flooring Direct’s polyamide carpet of choice, a versatile collection with 24 bold hues that you can match to existing furniture and fittings.
Unsurprisingly, UK favourite ‘pure wool’ is also available. Wool is a choice made with the long term in mind, staying true to tradition with a unique lustre that simply cannot be replicated in synthetics. More and more homes are converting to the benefits of man-made fibres, but some refuse to accept anything other that the distinctive touch and feel of wool, UK Flooring Direct’s Lauderdale collection brining this in all its glory.
Try running Lauderdale Stripe down stairways with a coordinating Lauderdale Plain in hallways and landings and the basis for an attractive interior is found. When it comes to carpets, the Inspiration Centre will be bringing you plenty of designer hints and tips over the coming weeks so keep a keen eye on our social media streams!
