Carpets we recommend for multi-unit dwellings, high end residential and hotels:
PART 1: BROADLOOM
When choosing residential carpets for multi-unit dwellings, there’s that trade-off between good looks and substance that can be a conundrum – a bit like relationships, it might seem beautiful at the start, but will it last the distance when the going gets tough?
We take a look at some of the leading options from Heritage Carpets that tick all the boxes, from healthy indoor air quality to warranties – and beauty that’s not just skin deep. This is a relationship you can really enjoy lying down!
Here are our recommendations for broadloom, plain and patterned.
The ever-popular sensory and visual delight of a luxury, plush, dense cut pile.
These broadlooms look and feel residential, with the performance of commercial carpets.

PATTERN AND TEXTURE
This one might challenge your notion of ‘residential’, but we like it. Tufted cut and loop, there are 4 patterns in the Labelle collection, each in 6 colourways. Crosshatch/brick, linear, woven-look and organic waves make it a collection very popular for hotels and for new-look residential.

Carrying all the eco-labels you’d hope for, with warranties that satisfy the rigours of commercial spaces, Bentley broadlooms can offer durability and looks, that step into something a little different – and we love them!
For multi-residential common areas, you can change up the look with more texture or pattern with ranges from Bentley that are available with the Elite Flex backing, which provides additional wear resistance, maintaining the look of the top carpet and providing an impervious barrier to spills.
