Follow These Tips When Choosing a Country Club Carpet

Country Clubs reflect a sense of elegance. Here is how country club carpeting can add personality to yours

Country clubs are a place where members and their families congregate to socialize, have a meal and participate in many recreational activities – from golf to swimming to tennis and more. Country clubs provide a home away from home for members, and as such, they are often designed with luxurious comfort in mind.

The look and feel of country clubs should reflect a certain elegance, but there also needs to be an air of comfort and familiarity that make the atmosphere proper without being stuffy.

One of the best ways to elicit this feeling out of those who enter your country club is to choose a luxurious country club carpet that accents the building beautifully. The right carpet can add just the right touch to any space.

Here are some tips for how you best outfit your country club with the perfect carpet.


Make Sure Your Carpet Can Withstand the Traffic

No matter what design you choose, know that your country club carpet will have to withstand heavy traffic in just about every room. From club rooms to entryways and dining rooms, country clubs experience a high volume of traffic, and people wear a wide variety of damaging footwear, such as golf spikes and high heels.
As such, it’s extremely important that when you’re choosing your country club carpet, you make sure it is rugged and won’t pull or pill. You should also keep in mind whether a room – and therefore its carpet – will be exposed to a lot of sunlight, which could fade the carpet in areas over time. 



Evoke the Great Outdoors

While country clubs are buildings that keep people sheltered from the outdoors, they are really just places people congregate to socialize and eat before or after they enjoy activities outdoors. Whether your country club revolves around golf, swimming, tennis, a marina or any combination of the above, the fact is that members flock to the country club for the activities it provides.
One great idea when you’re choosing a country club carpet is to bring the outdoors inside. You can accomplish this through design (such as marine patterns) or through color. Many country clubs choose carpeting that has a lot of blues for water, green for grass, brown for trees and yellow for sun. Custom designs are also a possibility – anything you desire can be designed into carpet. 


Complement the Carpet with the Right Furniture

Decorating a room in a country club doesn’t stop at picking the right carpet, though. The country club carpet will only be successful in its design if you choose the right furniture that complements it perfectly.
Before settling on the pattern and colors of your country club carpet, therefore, you should consider the room it’s going in and what furniture will be in that room. If you’re selecting flooring for a dining room that has wooden tables and chairs with blue accents, for example, then selecting a carpet that has a geometric pattern with complementary blues and browns would be a good idea.

Conversely, if you are outfitting a more contemporary club room with a bar, you might choose instead for deeper reds and oranges for the carpet.


Muffle the Noise

While country clubs are often considered formal places, that doesn’t mean they are completely quiet like a library. Of course, there will be rooms in the country club that will be quieter than others, so you won’t have to worry about muffling noise in those rooms.

Other rooms such as the dining rooms, for example, can get quite noisy at times, especially if they are larger and house many tables and chairs. For rooms like this, you want to choose a country club carpet that can help muffle that sound so it doesn’t sound like you’re sitting in a popular chain restaurant on a Friday or Saturday night.


Incorporate Movement in Your Carpet

One of the most popular ways to outfit a country club is to choose a luxury carpet that has a geometric pattern. In addition to giving a sophisticated look to a room, a geometric carpet can also guide visitors in a certain direction by, for example, having a diamond pattern direct traffic flow through a buffet line.


Select a Company Who Can Provide a Best In Class Carpet

When searching for a country club carpet, make sure you’re working with a manufacturer that provides high-quality carpet and excellent customer service.

What’s the difference between luxury carpets and standard carpets?

Quality Carpet is the Right Choice

When choosing the right carpet for your space remember that, like with anything else in life, you'll get what you pay for. Luxury wall-to-wall carpeting adds a feeling of elegance and comfort that will not be matched by the cheaper imitations of standard carpeting. This difference is not only reflected in the look, feel and construction of the materials– luxury carpet is also much more durable and long-lasting, making it the smarter investment in the long run.  

The Value Of Luxury Carpeting

Luxury carpets offer more than just elegance. They also enhance your use of the space with high functionality, including a higher pile density that  provides a soft landing for feet and dampens sounds. Luxury carpets create a more comfortable, harmonious environment that enriches your use of the space. Unlike cheaply made carpeting, which can quickly look worn down or develop runs, luxury carpets go the distance. With proper care, this investment will remain beautiful and luxurious for many years to come.

Choosing The Right Luxury Carpet For Your Space

Luxury carpeting is flexible to your needs, in terms of both style and function. For a bedroom, create an inner sanctuary ideal for sleeping with muted patterns and the rich softness of deep pile. In a high traffic area, or a workspace, choose solid colors and a lower pile that allows for easier movement of people and furniture. Luxury carpeting is great to look at but it's main priority is to be useful and enjoyable for everyone using the space.

Framing your carpet or rug with a beautiful border

   This is a great year to buy a new carpet because of all the exciting patterns available. There are business-like plaids, fun repeating shapes, geometric patterns and charming colors. But you know what makes these designs even more attractive? Borders. A wide frame in a complementary color or pattern can kick any carpet's fashion quotient up a notch, and here is why:

Eye-Catching Contrast

   Anyone who has had a painting framed knows that the surrounding material can enhance the picture in the frame. The frame can emphasize the colors of the picture, give it a sturdier appearance, and add to it's beauty. The contrasting pattern of a carpet border has a similar effect with carpets. People naturally notice contrast as it helps the complementary colors of your carpet pop. If your goal is to make a statement or be a little different in your interior decor, then carpets with borders is certainly a consideration.

Other reasons to add a border to your rug or wall to wall carpeting decor

It adds the appearance, quality and texture. Contrasting patterns and colors draw the eye to the weave of the carpet and the sharp change in pattern gives the impression that the weave is different on the border. If you want to play it safe in your decor, using paint and furniture in neutral colors, adding a splash of color and pattern in your rug, throw pillows and curtains is a way of committing for now – and it's always changeable at a later date if your tastes tend to change.  

    If you are thinking about redecorating and want to see carpet borders and other luxury carpet ideas, contact us. Bloomsburg Carpet Inc. proudly woven in America since 1976.

Remembering Raymond Habib

 

Raymond Peter Habib
July 8, 1926 – January 17th, 2019

Thursday, January 17th, 2019, Raymond Peter Habib, founder and former CEO of Bloomsburg Carpet Industries passed away peacefully in his home, at the age of 92.

After volunteering for service in World War II, Raymond went on to graduate from Fordham University with a degree in Business. Shortly after graduating, Ray was hired to be a salesman for Magee Carpets, where he would spend the next 25 years learning the nuances of the carpet industry and work his way up to Vice President of their Contract Carpet division.  

In 1976, Raymond would part ways with Magee Carpets and build a new company, Bloomsburg Carpet, with 12 loyal employees and only a few looms. Today, Bloomsburg Carpet has over 200 employees and dozens of looms and continues to be lead by Ray’s son, Thomas Habib, with the same dedication to quality and craftsmanship.

When Ray wasn’t running between the Bloomsburg, PA mill and the New York City sales office, he would be found at the driving range or on the links. Ray is survived by his wife of 59 years, Elaine, as well as his children, Raymond Jr. (Valerie), Thomas (Alice), John (Tanya) and Catherine (Michael Joyce), his grandchildren and a great granddaughter.

He was a man of principle and his legacy is forever imprinted in the foundation of Bloomsburg Carpet.

Choosing The Right Carpet For Your Office

Make it a place you're proud to entertain customers or clients

   Corporate clients are a discerning bunch when it comes to decorating an office space. This is especially true when carpeting an office, since it's a place you spend 40+ hours per week.  It's important to choose a subtle, professional-looking carpet in line with the style of the office. Picking the right office carpet takes considering a few things while shopping.

   Carpet comes in many materials each with advantages that make it suitable for certain applications. Considering traffic areas and activity will happen in an office will help you choose a material. For instance:

1. Wool repels stains and has an appealingly natural texture to it. This makes it great for offices where artists work or people often eat food at their desks. It also has the advantage of being eco-friendly for businesses who want to stress that part of their brand.

2. Nylon is rugged and keeps its shape well. It's easy to clean and resists moisture mightily. This makes it great for rooms that get a lot of wear, might get wet, and is often trampled by the public. 

3. Velvet is soft and looks matted. It tends to show dents, but it is great for any office where people spend a lot of time on the carpet.

Coordinate Colors With The Mood 

   Every office has a different feel to it. Some look industrial chic with open plans and steel furnishings and might call for gray or black carpet. Others are going for a more conservative look, with neutral, beige or earthy tones and textures or for a more minimalist look. Each look says a lot about how a company sees itself and what image they want to convey.  A carpet that matches the preferred look will go a long way to completing the company's brand image. You will want to consider the entire color scheme and style of furnishings before deciding on an office carpet pattern. 

    If you're shopping for new luxury office carpet, keep these things in mind. To search for high-quality, American-made carpet that will look professional and luxurious in your office, contact Bloomsburg Carpet Inc. proudly woven in America since 1976.
