Borders within carpet create an interesting look that add to any room or stairway. Here are a few examples of border work using woven carpet on stairs and in a room. The first two show examples of where we use what is called an outfill (carpet on the outside of the border) because the half landing and room were out of square. With the wilton carpet from Louis de Poortere the half landings were square so a continuous border without an outfill was possible.
This group of photographs show some of our commercial installations. A point of interest with the Firehouse Rotisserie pictures is that we won an award from Altro for this particular installation for using their, what was then, new wood effect safety flooring that butted directly up to real wood but didn't really notice. The award was for "consistent quality of workmanship and service when installing Altro flooring...." Although these pictures are of vinyl we can supply commercial carpets some of which can be designed and coloured for as little as 25 square metres.
Over the years we have become particularly skilled in the installation of all types of natural carpets. Coir and Seagrass give you the rustic look with Sisal and Jute a more sophisticated look. With many textures to choose from the one thing you can guarantee is a carpet that is both interesting to look at and will never tire of. The addition of a coloured border with a shaped landing always adds to the finished effect as shown in a couple of these pictures.
Stripes have been around for years from the days when manufacturers used to use up all their spare yarn and make "one off" broadloom carpet. Nowadays there are stripes to suit all budgets in both wool and manmade fibres. Primarily, but not exclusively, used on stairs our view is they always look amazing.
Although "Carpets" is in the company name we do other floorings as well. These few pictures show examples of installations using rubber flooring and LVT (Amtico or Karndean types) of design flooring where, again, borders can be inserted.
