What is a functional carpet?
A high performing functional carpet has a clear brief: perform well under duress but look good while you’re doing it.
Functional carpets are tough, strong and durable yet they have the same sensory appeal as their luxurious counterparts. Their stunning colour palette is on-trend; cool greys and smooth neutrals combined with naturally earthy forest floor tones.
Generally constructed from polypropylene or triexta synthetic fibres, functional carpets can withstand the wear and tear inflicted upon them by active family lifestyles, standing up to any amount of pile crushing while retaining their stylish good looks.
Are functional carpets ideal for busy traffic areas?
Fabulously family-friendly functional carpets are expertly crafted for heavy traffic areas of the home. Boasting built-in stain protection and easy to clean soil-resistant fibres, functional carpets love a challenge. Throw them into busy homes with heavy duty foot traffic and they’ll stand up every time, resisting pile crushing, soiling and staining day after day, year after year.
Are functional carpets hardwearing?
Functional carpets feature exceptional durability stemming from the tough polypropylene and nylon fibres combined with crush resistant twist, loop and textured pile types. Functional carpets are favourites in family rooms, playrooms, hallways, rumpus rooms and rental accommodation simply because their claim to fame is their ability to withstand anything that’s thrown at them.
