Let’s remind ourselves again – impeccable looks means the world to a hotel. It’s what spells the difference between simplicity and elaboration, and can either make or break a business. A great hotel is not just about the lobby or the room – it is about everything it has to offer. There must be a harmonious, visual connection between rooms, and such can only be achieved with a genius mix of colorful patterns, nonchalant neutrals and quirky-cool details.
In the cut-throat world of business, the first and most important thing in any hotel is to create a home that’s in every bit as relaxing as a real home. One of the easiest ways to get the high-end, over time look of a boutique hotel is with floor coverings.
In the interior design realm, the floor is often referred to as the fifth wall- another area that creates a signature statement as the four walls of a room. With that said, floor coverings for hotels have to be many things. They have to be attractive, durable, easy to clean and cost effective.
Why Woolen Carpets?
Our systems have the luxurious look and feel of wool but are constructed of polyamide fibre for increased longevity and ease of maintenance.Warm, comforting, soft and luxurious, woolen carpets provide and unrivaled sensory experience. It is the deluxe fiber choice for a hotel and has numerous advantages over synthetics. Let’s delve into the details:
- Noise Insulation
Wool acts as a fantastic sound insulator, reducing ambient noise and absorbing a good deal of footstep sounds. Studies reveal noise reduction of up to 50% where carpeting is used- and there is no better way to improve the acoustic quality of a room than using a natural, soft woolen carpet.
- Humidity Watchdog
Wool has an unsurpassed ability to regulate the humidity of an interior- in layman terms- it simply breathes. Here wool outperforms itself by absorbing up to 40% of its own weight in moisture without feeling damp or cold to the touch.
Wool carpets bind allergy-causing substances, reducing the fine dust count circulating in the air to a bare minimum. As such, the amount of dust in the atmosphere will be significantly lower. The German Allergy and Asthma Association (DAAB) backed this reasoning by conducting studies that revealed that a carpeted room had less than half the amount of dust than smooth floors.
- Spic and Span
With wool carpets, you will only need to do vacuuming once or twice weekly unlike hard floors where daily cleaning is compulsory. This is because wool has a thin waxy surface which is not only robust but also resistant to wear and tear. Additionally, it can absorb a significant amount of moisture without feeling wet and doesn’t conduct static electricity the way other carpets do. Less static electricity simply means less dirt.
- Thermal Cushion
Carpets have superb insulation properties. They isolate the warm air in a room from the cold underfloor to keep you warm during winter and cool in summer. While this may not particularly be of significant importance to your guests, they will nonetheless appreciate the lasting beauty and superior softness they get from wool.
- Flame Retardant
Wool carpets are naturally flame retardant, due to their high protein content. If it goes up in flames, it burns weakly, limiting the spread of fire. Given this complex structure, they can absorb and filter VOCs from air, thus reducing irritation to humans.
The Wow Effect of the Woolen Carpet Segment
Woolen carpets have a quality that impresses guests with stylish and inspiring designs. Freestanding rugs perfectly capture the essence of a room- emphasizing the floor area and heightening color to a whole new level of subtle and bright.
