Care Instructions

Prompt and immediate attention to any spillages or stains is paramount to avoid the penetration of a stain into the carpet fibres. Liquids (particularly hot liquids) must be attended to immediately. If allowed to cool or dry, the stain will be almost impossible to remove. Care must be taken as haphazard attempts at spot removal can cause permanent stain setting, pile distortion and loss of colour. More detailed information on how to care for your carpet can be found by downloading the full product brochure here.

The latest in a long line of visually stunning, high performing carpets from Godfrey Hirst is called ‘Illusion’ but this carpet’s all-round brilliance is anything but an illusion. Made from 100% solution dyed nylon, this sumptuous carpet is soft to touch but super hard-wearing.

What is solution dyed nylon?

Solution dyed nylon carpet (also referred to as SDN) is a colourfast, fade and stain resistant, highly durable carpet perfectly suited to the wear and tear of busy family homes. SDN is a tough performer but conversely is super soft underfoot, making it the perfect carpet fibre for your entire home.

Solution dyed nylon will stand up to heavy duty foot traffic and deal with the activity kids and pets can bring to active living areas in your home. But equally, Illusion is a luxurious, aesthetically pleasing carpet for your formal dining or lounge, and a beautiful choice for your bedrooms.

Synthetic fibres such as SDN don’t shed like new wool carpets can sometimes do, so SDN is a great alternative to pure wool carpets in homes with allergy or asthma sufferers.

How soft and resilient are synthetic fibre carpets?

Softer than you would expect! You certainly don’t compromise on comfort when you choose a synthetic fibre carpet over a wool carpet. But while they are luxuriously soft they are also renowned for their incredible durability and multi-tasking resilience in busy areas of the home. Synthetic carpets are highly tensile so they will quickly bounce back when crushed underfoot or by furniture. They have superior stain and fade resistance so the kids and the sun can be let loose in your family room with no fear of staining or fading your gorgeous Illusion carpet.

Why is Illusion a good choice for my home?

Carpets made from cut, twisted fibres have great tensile strength and are easy to keep clean. Regular vacuuming prevents household dust and debris from becoming trapped within carpet fibres and the additional treatment with Stainblock means that Illusion is not only easily cleaned but you won’t have to deal with stubborn stains.

Illusion is available in twelve on-trend colours and displays subtle textures within a colour palette designed for family living. The available colours range from bold and striking which will contrast beautifully with a light paint palette, to subtle earthy tones, naturals and neutrals which are practical shades for coping with busy foot traffic in family homes.

It comes with superior wear, fade and stain resistant warranties and has guaranteed lifetime anti-static and insect deterrent properties. Illusion is a 1/10 gauge carpet with an 8mm pile height, which means it is a dense weave offering superior cushioning under foot.

Illusion is a great choice for your home if you seek a visually stunning, super-soft, high-performing and long-lasting carpet which is excellent value for money.

What colours does Illusion come in?

An incredible colour palette is on offer with Illusion. In popular grey shades Cloud Cover, Dove, Magic, Shadow and Starlight will add a cool, contemporary edge to your home, making your crisp white walls pop with freshness. Curtain, Mirage and Moon Glow are strong, dark and broody colours which will add wow factor to your home design while Specter and Glitter have diverse depth but are neither bold nor pale. Tinsel and Dust complete the range with warm earthy shades which will blend beautifully with other natural tones in your décor.

In a colour palette this diverse, any illusion you wish to create is achievable, from rich and bold to natural and earthy.
