The Dining Room – To carpet or not to carpet?

The last few years have seen a surge in homeowners and builders opting for open plan spaces, incorporating a living diner into their homes. This doesn’t just make a space more efficient and multi-functional but creates ‘communal living’, meaning more together time for a family. It’s for this reason that homeowners are increasingly choosing carpet as a soft but practical floorcovering to run throughout their home. Carpets in the dining room used to be a big no-no when it came to practicality. Now, times are changing and the pressures to choose a hard floorcovering are becoming a thing of the past, thanks to the latest yarn technology.

A living diner is right at the heart of the home, synonymous with family meals, special occasions, spending time with loved ones or entertaining guests.

A derivative of the word “dine” – the dining room is where one consumes food. It’s, for this reason, many people shy away from carpets and choose alternative floor coverings such as wood, laminate or stone where spillages and dropped food can easily be wiped away. But thanks to Cormar’s Easy Clean carpet collection, using the latest yarn technology, carpet can exude total style and comfort, but with convenience and practicality in mind - making carpet stains a worry of the past!

The benefits of carpet in your dining room…

A 100% polypropylene carpet is stain resistant and bleach cleanable. Manufactured using tenth gauge machinery, Cormar’s Easy Clean range is renowned for its hard-wearing capabilities, making it ideal for all around the home! Aside from these benefits, a carpet also provides the perfect cushioning underfoot making it a safer, softer option for your home. Not to mention it’s insulating properties, keeping your open-plan space cosy and warm.

Cormar’s Easy Clean Twist carpets all come with a 10-year stain and wear guarantee - meaning there’s no need to worry about any potential food mishaps, sticky hands or drink spillages – instead just follow these simple steps:

  1. Make sure you have a clean, white cloth, household bleach, warm water and kitchen towel to hand.
  2. As above, tackle the spillage immediately to ensure it doesn’t dry into the carpet and remove all semi-solids with a plastic spatula.
  3. Make a bleach solution, using one-part bleach and ten parts water. (NOT for wool carpets)
  4. Using the white cloth and working gently from the outside in, gently blot away the stain, adding more bleach to the solution if necessary
  5. When the stain has been removed, carefully blot the carpet dry with kitchen towel

With dinner parties on the rise in UK households, no-one wants to be a party pooper worrying about those accidental spillages or shoe-crushed canapé's!

Luckily, Cormar have done all the hard work, so you can sit back and enjoy a knees-up, hassle-free with their easy clean carpets.
