When it comes to floor coverings the final look on the floor is the most important thing.” Sounds obvious doesn’t it, but you’d be surprised how many people loose sight of their goal – selecting the wrong type of floor covering, wrong grade, colour, pattern, quality or even installer.
In his 22 years in the carpet industry, from manufacturing and importing to retailer, Carpet Vision’s Kevin Morrison has seen it all and his main goal is always to give his customers ‘the final look’
they desire. It let him to establish Carpet Vision in Albany in June last year – a business that offers not just carpet, expert advice and installation but a range of other options – carpet tiles, vinyl, timber laminate, engineered timber, solid timber and cork, which he describes as the forgotton floor covering with amazing properties and coming from a renewable source. Carpet Vision is also home to specialist carpet treatments, upholstery and interior design service run by designer Dianne Carian. Often Dianne and Kevin are asked to provide tailor-made packages for a total decor environment.
Carpet is one of the bigger outlays you’ll make and it’s therefore important to get the right kind for your situation and budget. Kevin’s advice is invaluable and he is absolutely up to date with the latest developments, trends and technologies in all the flooring options. He has excellent relationships with suppliers built up over many years.
Kevin’s pride and joy at the moment is the Eco+ next generation Triexta carpets, manufactured with Sorona polymer from natural corn sugar by Godfrey Hirst Carpets. This is the world’s first residential Coloursmart dyed Triexta fibre, providing new levels of stain and wear resistance and colour fastness as well as enriched softness. It’s guaranteed for 15 years.
