Let’s talk carpet with the experts at Trevor’s Carpets
Choosing carpet flooring for your home will add style and warmth to a room, while also reducing noise and improving air quality. And what’s even better, all carpets that are displayed in the BGC Home Showroom are Australian made, including the underlay. In fact, the underlay is made from a minimum of 90% recycled materials and any offcuts are sent back to the manufacture to be recycled into brand new underlay. So, by choosing carpet flooring with one of our builder brands, you’re choosing a sustainable flooring option while also supporting Australian businesses. How great is that!?
Our whole range of carpets are supplied by our friends at Trevors Carpets, Western Australia’s largest supplier of timber, luxury vinyl planks, hybrids, laminate, vinyls and of course carpets. When you choose to build with one of BGC Housing Group’s home builders, you will meet the team at Trevor’s Carpets who will guide you through your flooring selections.
With the expertise of Trevors Carpets, we’re going to delve a little further into where carpet comes from and what type of carpet we’d recommend for a sustainable and stylish home.
Supporting Local Business
There’s never been a more important time to support a local industry that creates thousands of Australian jobs. Trevors Carpets is a proud stockist of Australian made carpets, including Feltex, EC, Quest, Victoria Carpets, and Godfrey Hirst. All have stellar reputations garnered over a combined 450 years’ experience making quality carpets. Locally made carpets ensure products of the highest quality, entailing less transport miles which is environmentally beneficial.
One of those manufacturers is EC Carpets, one of the last Australian family owned and operated carpet manufacturers in Australia. Based in South Australia, the EC Carpets’ range is manufactured over a multitude of 3.66m wide carpet tufting machines producing carpet that is certified ISO14001 and ISO9001, meaning it meets a high standard for environmental sustainability. Not only is the product extremely high quality, all of the left-over waste yarn from the manufacturing process is recycled. If you’re interested to know a little more about how their carpet is made, you can check out EC Carpets’ video here. It really is quite fascinating!
The EC Carpets story is just one of many Australian businesses that go into creating your home when you build with BGC Housing Group.
The most environmentally friendly carpets are made with natural fibres, such as wool carpet, and when it comes to creating a comfortable space, it’s hard to surpass the properties and benefits of Australian made wool carpet. Used as a floor covering for over 5000 years, wool is a premium natural product that is much more than soft and luxurious to the touch. The nature of wool means that these carpets are renewable, sustainable, durable, and biodegradable.
And it seems our clients would agree, with the wool Hause range being one of our most popular choices for those building their new home. Wool is a great natural fibre that offers superb resilience to wear and general soiling meaning it’s ideal for high traffic areas like the hallway, stairs or landing. These areas get a lot of footfall and soiling, so in the long term it pays dividends to spend slightly more for higher quality carpets.
