The Silkroad Carpets
Good quality carpet is hardwearing, warm, cosy and easy to care for, offering excellent heat insulation and sound absorption. From ultra-soft weaves to sumptuous textures the choices are many and varied and with superb colours and designs available there’s a stylish solution for every room. With enormous choices, our team understand that choosing carpets can be overwhelming which is why our boutique showroom only promotes floorcoverings that are tried and tested over many years. The majority of our carpets contain wool, although we do offer some superior man-made ranges as well. Our wool ranges are mothproofed, naturally insulating and also fire retardant making it a perfect choice for a warm and cosy floorcovering.
Carpets can be finished with different textures – loop pile or twist (also known as a cut pile carpet, where the carpet fibres are exposed where the yarns have been sheared). The tighter the twist the more durable the carpet. The latter style remains very popular as a general all-rounder feeling softer underfoot than loop pile carpets. Loop pile carpets have not been sheared but remain as a loop which gives a very different look and feel. Manufacturers have had great fun with loop pile carpets which can now be found in many different weights, colours, textures and designs. Good quality loop or cut pile carpets will both perform just as well as each other, leaving the final decision down to personal preference. Natural carpets, such as Sisal and Seagrass, are popular with designers as they can make a bold, smart and contemporary statement using renewable materials. Carpets can also be made into bespoke rugs and a few specialist companies that we work closely with offer many exciting possibilities with colourful ranges of plain or patterned borders and piping options – all bespoke to you.
Our sales staff are all trained to guide you through the labyrinth of choices available and what may or may not be suitable for your particular space. There are pro’s and con’s with all floor coverings which is why honest and impartial advice is so valuable enabling you to make informed decisions.
