Floor coverings are really an important detail of the overall design of hotel rooms. Carpets used to decorate these rooms have both practical and aesthetic functions. Supervisors have the option to choose from different types of carpet textures, colours, models and so on. Now, let me present you the main types of carpets you can find in hotels.

  •     Synthetic Fiber Carpets

Acrylic carpets are one of the top choices in hotels due to their numerous benefits such as fast drying, different colour options, stain resistance, mildew and mould resistance and so on. However, for high-traffic areas, acrylic fiber carpets wear out faster, if they are subjected to heavy use. When it comes to synthetic floor coverings, polyester carpets are between the most commonly used in the tourism. One of their advantages is the fact that they can fit to different colours schemes as you can find them in different shades. The problem with polyester fibers comes when they are exposed to excessive sunlight. In this case there is a real risk for shedding and also they will start attracting oil stains more easily. To cover high-traffic areas in a hotel room, specialists recommend to use nylon carpets. Carpet cleaning experts from Melbourne claim that nylon floor coverings are known to be mildew and stain resistant.

  •     Natural Carpets

Luxurious hotels have the possibility to spend more money for natural carpets such as seagrass, sisal, jute, wool carpets and so on. A good alternative to traditional carpets are the seagrass floor coverings. They have a latex backing and are mainly used for areas with medium and low traffic. If you are looking for durable, strong and fire resistant carpets, go for jute carpets. However, be careful not to place them in high traffic areas and under direct sunlight. For the stairs and hallways in the hotels, it is a wise idea to go for sisal carpets. They do not trap dust and resist static and all these benefits made them commonly used in hotels. Four and five stars hotels often decorate the rooms with wool carpets. These days you can find them in a variety of styles, colours and patterns. Furthermore, they are not only durable and resist most known stains, but they are also biodegradable.

  •     Blended Carpets

Blended carpets are made when manufacturers blend two and sometimes more different fibers. Here are some common combinations:

- silk/ wool blends

- wool/nylon

-olefin/nylon

-cotton/silk

So, at this point you should be already familiar with the main carpet choices in hotels.
