When choosing the right kind of flooring for your home, there are many essential factors to consider in style, durability, and maintenance. Not only will you want your flooring to be comfortable and to look good and feel luxurious, but you’ll also want it to last – especially when you consider the flooring may be in place for decades to come. 

Choosing the perfect flooring foundation for stylish, contemporary living is essential to a well-designed home, but it also pays to know the origins of the material and the impact of your investment.

Riverstone carpet from Floorworld
With a gorgeous, textured look, wool carpet makes a stylish statement in the home. Floorworld’s many wool carpet delights include the beautiful Riverstone wool carpet by Feltex – a perfect addition to bedroom flooring.

Wool carpet remains a superb carpet choice for lovers of natural and renewable fibres – especially in homes where luxury finishes and clean living are paramount. Wool carpet has the added benefit of being a healthier flooring choice, as wool acts naturally to absorb pollutants, which means choosing a wool carpet can help improve your home’s air quality and regulated air moisture. If you or your family are allergy sufferers, wool carpet is an excellent choice.

Floorworld’s expert advice for would-be wool lovers? Wool has noise absorbing qualities ensuring a quiet environment. Wool is not only a flame-resistant material but it’s sustainable, durable and biodegradable and naturally resistant to dirt and household stains.
