Should I choose Sisal Carpet?

In my professional opinion – No. You Shouldn’t!

I often get customers asking me about Sisal Carpet, is it hard wearing and would I recommend it? To be honest… I wouldn’t! And for quite a few reasons.

First of all it’s expensive to buy and usually it has to be fully stuck to the floor or the underlay, which adds to the fitting cost. Being a natural product it’s prone to absorbing stains, which makes it very difficult to clean and not ideal for family use or pets.

Harsh to Walk On.

In my opinion I think its got a harsh feel to it and because it has to be fitted on top of a hard flat underlay it makes it feel quite solid. This results in a lack of a sumptuous feel that most of my clients want.

Another problem can arise when your room is over-sized, please see my pictures.  It’s also one of the worst types of flooring for joining, making it very difficult to get a good long lasting result.

I was asked by the owners of this extremely nice apartment to change their Sisal Carpet.

I recommended Lugano, which is a heavy domestic 100% polypropylene twist pile fitted on top of Cloud 9 11 mm underlay. It benefits from a short and tight pile which is bleach cleanable. Ideally suitable for everyday stains and not only that, it’s a delight to walk on.

Also take a look at where the join was on the Sisal Carpet, although it wont be invisible it’s certainly a big improvement.
