When choosing residential carpets for multi-unit dwellings, finding a solution that is hard-wearing yet beautiful and sustainable can be a challenge. We take a look at some of the leading options from Heritage Carpets that tick all the boxes:
Plush Cut Pile — Plain Broadloom
A dense, cut pile is ever popular for residential spaces; soft under foot with the look of luxury.
Anarchy is lush, forgiving and long-lasting, delivering the performance of a commercial carpet with a cosy look. A high-end option from Bentley Mills LA, Anarchy is available in seven neutral shades in a textured cut 8mm pile.
Kings Road is a firmer cut pile, boasting softness alongside longevity. Designers and their clients can choose from broadloom, or to mix and match in common areas with planks or tiles. By Bentley Mills LA, Kings Road is available in 21 colours in a 7mm+ pile height.
Pattern and Texture — Broadloom
Ritual is an easy-to-live-with solution that is practical whilst being a high-end statement carpet. It’s a stunning look, and part of Bentley’s Outskirts Collection. Available in 13 duo tones, Ritual features a tufted, textured loop with three pile heights.
Ponder is a design statement that is part of the Meiso Collection by Bentley. Available in 12 colours, Ponder features a tufted, textured loop.
Repose from Bentley’s Outskirts Collection is a subtle blend of colours, adding life to floors. Available in 13 colourways, Repose features a tufted textured loop and comes with the option of Elite Flex impervious backing.
Paris Tweed is conceived from classic fabrics and lush fibres. The small scale pattern features striated definition and metallic yarns. Available in 13 colours, Paris Tweed is a tip-sheared tufted carpet and comes with the option of Elite Flex impervious backing.
Elite Flex Backing is ideal for multi-residential common areas. Designers can change up the look, creating texture or pattern with a range of Bentley carpets available with Elite Flex backing. The backing provides additional wear resistance, maintaining the look of the top carpet and providing an impervious barrier to spills.
Tiles — Europe is leading the way
The European trend of using carpet tiles in residential settings might feel unusual to us, but it is a solution that makes a lot of sense. If a tile is damaged, simply replace it. It’s an eco-friendly, convenient and cost-effective solution.
Gleam are aptly named, luxury cut pile tiles from modulyss. The combination of matt and glossy yarns create richness and subtle shimmer that’s silky soft to the touch. Choose one colour, or mix it up with a choice of 27 colours available. Gleam luxury cut pile tiles are made from 100% recycled nylon yarn that’s 100% sustainable with a total height of 9.5mm.
DSGN Absolute is a great option for multi-residential projects from modulyss. Absolute features subtle contrast of two tones, offering a unique nuanced look. Available in 16 colours, DSGN Absolute features a loop pile.
Paris Tweed from Bentley is popular as a tile for residential applications. Use the same colour for tiles throughout an apartment and break up corridors and common areas by introducing colour accents. Available in 13 colours, Paris Tweed is a tip-sheared, tufted carpet.
Off the Chain from Bentley is a gorgeous textured carpet that mimics the highs and lows of chain stitches — and it comes in broadloom as well as tile. Available in 12 colourways, Off the Chain features a tufted, textured loop.
Root is from Bentley’s Meiso collection with a tone-on-tone pattern that you can have fun with as a residential tile. Root features a tufted, textured loop and is available in broadloom in 12 colourways with Elite Flex impervious backing.
