Savvy Shopaholic Jo Munro provides the ultimate guide to tech-driven carpet trends.
When you think of floor coverings, the latest trends for home technology and sustainability are not really the first things that spring to mind. On my recent shopping adventure to replace my carpet, I was surprised how technology has helped make the products more sustainable. The website also allowed me to make more informed decisions and to try before you buy so to speak, so you can check the look and the liveability of innovative products before the point of purchase.
Tech and sustainable decor
I am a self-confessed conscious consumer. I like to recycle, upcycle and spend my money on products with companies that are actively innovating and producing products that minimize the impact on the planet.
The truth of the matter is technology has revolutionised how carpeting and floor coverings function in our home, addressing the age-old fears of germ infested, dirt retaining, stained carpet to the bold new world of eco-friendly, stain and fade resistant and hypoallergenic looms.
Carpet Court ECONYL® regenerated nylon caught my attention. There are benefits to non-organic compounds as they are a repellent environment for bacteria, mould, and pollen. Nylon is the most allergy friendly carpet fibre. Fibres certified to have low Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCS) such as ECONYL® regenerated nylon improve air quality and are great for homes with kids or those with allergies and respiratory conditions.
ECONYL® regenerated nylon shares the same look, feel and performance qualities as traditional carpets but with all the new age benefits.
Made from 100 per cent recycled yarn through recovered nylon waste products – including such as fishing nets, industrial plastic, plastic bottles, and carpets destined for landfill and all featuring on-trend colours, textures, and styles.
I loved the new Australian Made ranges from Tuftmaster Carpets and EC Carpets that are manufactured exclusively for Carpet Court using ECONYL® regenerated nylon, all of which feature distinct styles and colour-ways.
The good news is, style is not sacrificed with the amazing array of twenty first century options and nor is price.
Sustainable options range from high-performing textured loops to twist pile structures that are so soft to the touch.
Choosing the right loom for your room no longer relies on your imagination thanks to Carpet Court’s website which features a host of flooring options from room size information to a host of colour ways. The solution is simple when you can actually imagine how your room will look with a variety of styles and colour options. I felt I was in control and could picture my environment with the new floor coverings. I loved the certainty of a no risk purchase.
Not only could I plan how the options looked and fitted in my home, but the selection of new age carpets ticked the boxes for me. Thanks to technology, they are sustainable, too.
So, when you consider updating your home, consider innovation and sustainability and take advantage of the best technology has to offer.
