1. Luxurious Carpet


If you’re looking for a luxurious carpet with comfort and style that will go the distance, the Dream Weaver ‘Colossus’ Carpet is your pick. This carpet is 100% Cationic PureColour solution dyed, which means that the carpet fibre is dyed while the ingredients that make the fibre are still a solution. An innovative, supercharged method of solution dying, the Cationic process is achieved using the latest technology. The result? A carpet that is virtually colourfast with enhanced fade and stain resistance, even against the harshest of stains such as red wine and pet urine! And if that’s not enough to protect your new home investment, Dreamweaver carpets come with a 25 year wear warranty and a lifetime stain resistance warranty.

2. Durability to the Max


Nothing says home like the feeling of a soft, clean carpet underfoot so treat the whole family to the SmartStrand Forever Clean ‘Accent’ Carpet this Christmas. Designed with pet owners in mind, SmartStrand Forever Clean carpets feature built-in stain and spill protection, Nanoloc technology and 0% absorption so they’re super easy to clean and offer a worry-free solution. The carpet’s twisted yarns made from soft yet strong fibres create a textured, casual look that will see your home in style throughout the seasons. With lifetime pet, stain and soil resistance warranties, SmartStrand Forever Clean carpets are tough enough to carpet Max the Rhino’s den at Birmingham Zoo – now that is durability to the max.
