Why Choose Felt-Back Carpets?

Felt-back carpets are the unsung heroes of the flooring world. Often overshadowed by their more expensive, secondary backed, counterparts, these carpets offer a unique blend of durability, ease of installation, and cost-effectiveness that's hard to beat. Here's why they're worth your consideration:

Affordability: In the realm of flooring, felt-back carpets stand out for their exceptional value. They provide a cost-effective solution without compromising on the cosy underfoot experience that carpets are loved for.

Versatility: Whether it's a serene bedroom retreat or a low-traffic study, felt-back carpets can transform any space. Their adaptability in terms of aesthetics and functionality makes them a go-to choice for various rooms.

Ease of Installation: One of the standout features of felt-back carpets is their straightforward installation process. They can be laid directly onto a clean, prepared surface, eliminating the need for underlay and gripper rods in some cases. However, for enhanced longevity and comfort, especially in high-traffic areas, pairing them with a high-quality underlay is recommended.

Trends in Felt-Back Carpets

Felt-back carpets have always reflected a blend of innovation, style, and sustainability:

Eco-Friendly Options: The push towards sustainability is stronger than ever, with manufacturers innovating to produce felt-back carpets from recycled materials. These eco-friendly options offer the same durability and comfort, with the added benefit of reducing environmental impact.

Bold and Beautiful: Gone are the days of felt-back carpets being limited to subtle hues. More manufacturers are producing a range of vibrant colours and patterns that can serve as the focal point of any room, adding personality and flair.

Texture Play: Textural diversity adds depth and interest to your floors. From soft and plush to structured and firm, the variety in textures allows for a more tailored approach to matching your carpet to your lifestyle and decor preferences.
