Broadloom carpet is a popular, traditional choice as a floor covering for many reasons. It can look extremely elegant and plush, has a great tactile property, is soft and warm underfoot, and reduces footstep noise in many cases. It also has great insulation benefits.
There can be cost savings, and time savings when choosing to install carpet instead of other more labour-intensive products. Bedrooms, formal lounges and rumpus rooms can all benefit from a well selected carpet.
One of the main decisions to make when choosing Broadloom carpet is wool versus synthetic. Wool fibres have the property of absorbing and releasing moisture to regulate humidity in a natural way. In addition, they won’t conduct static electricity, and are fresh and dry to the touch.
Wool is luxurious, warm and durable, and also stain resistant to a degree. Spills should always be cleaned up immediately though. Wool is generally the most expensive carpet to buy.Synthetic carpets can be made from nylon, or polypropylene, or other man-made fibres.
Nylon is strong and hard wearing, with added stain resistance compared with wool. Colour retention is good against sunlight and cleaning. Nylon is a great choice for families with children and pets, and especially suited to high traffic areas.
Polypropylene is the cheapest carpet, but very durable and water resistant. Great for rental properties etc. Finally, there are blends. For example, an 80/20 wool/nylon blend will give you the benefits of both wool and nylon.
