The Intricacies of Custom Cruise Ship Carpeting

Where big, bold color and style make a statement

Cruise ships are a singular symbol for luxury travel. No longer hosting exclusively niche markets, cruises have become increasingly popular of late for anyone and everyone who wants to sail the high seas in style.

The opulence aboard a cruise ship is without compare. From fore to aft, no detail is overlooked. Often, a cruise ship's entire brand rests upon a kaleidoscope of artistic touches. Many of the particulars may go unnoticed by the average cruise passenger, but each component contributes to an overall atmosphere of lavishness.

Cruise ship carpeting is no exception. A plenitude of intricate patterns and custom made designs exist right under passengers' feet. A cruise ship is a perfect home for such a utilitarian work of art.

 


 

Below are examples of custom cruise ship carpeting design patterns, and how they can affect the entire guest experience:

  • Linear Geometric Designs may orient passengers to their general location on the ship, lines or angles indicating fore and aft

  • Round or Spiral Geometric Designs can also point to a place, such as the grande piano in the central lounge

  • Asymmetrical Patterns may lead the way to a social hangout on the ship, like a bar

  • Floral Patterns are sometimes popular in formal dining rooms

  • Painterly Forms are great for carpeting around artistic venues, such as the art gallery

  • Environmental Designs can reflect the ship's destination or home port

  • Neutral Tones may be preferred in cabin walkways and state rooms

  • The Frills or fancy red carpet muffling steps in anticipation as the crowds head to the dining room or the theater

 

With a cruise ship's high traffic, the carpet needs to be the best available. A high quality weave that will stand the test of time is desired. Still, even the best carpets need to be replaced every so often. Cruise ship carpets are given an overhaul every few years depending on wear and tear, during a dry dock period when maintenance and refurbishments are made.

Bloomsburg Carpets Custom Design Studio is committed to providing the only highest quality in hospitality carpet craftsmanship. We pride ourselves on the time tested techniques we utilize to weave beautiful and finely designed work to compliment any space. We are guided by a pledge to employ environmentally friendly and sustainable methods, as many people in the cruise industry are as well.

Carpeting for your Boutique Hotel or Airbnb

Nothing is more inviting than a warm and comfortable carpet in your hotel room. Hospitality carpet at its finest.

Quality Rugs for your Airbnb
 

Carpeting is the perfect choice for small hotels, bed and breakfasts and even Airbnb's. As the former owner and acquaintance of a boutique hotel once said, "It's all about the feel when you walk through the door. You never get a second chance to make a first impression".

Why Carpet Should be Your Number One Choice

Whether in reception, sitting areas or bedrooms, carpet never fails to give guests that warm and welcoming feel every small hotel strives for. Its durability makes it look good day in, and day out. When selected to bring harmony to existing room decor and furnishings, it frequently is the final link that gives a room the Wow factor. Carpeting today comes in so many colors, materials, patterns, and textures that choosing the perfect design for each individual area can be quite challenging.

Balancing Your Hotel's Eco-Friendly Initiatives with Your Decor

Hospitality businesses are increasingly concerned about their personal impact on the environment, and are selecting materials for their businesses that minimize waste and encourage guests to reduce, reuse and recycle. Guests are encouraged to reuse towels and sheets for example, and in return businesses are promoting eco-friendly practices that they too are adopting – LED lights, programmable thermostats, organic cotton linens etc. Carpet manufacturers also embrace these goals and can be a major part of your eco program. Ask for Green Label Plus products and consider natural wool fiber carpets – the ultimate in a renewable and biodegradable resource.

What To Look For

Seeking the advice of a professional carpet manufacturer or dealer is one of the first steps recommended in any renovation or new design. It can, quite literally, save you hours of time – something few hospitality professionals or designers have much of anyway!

For example a reception area is typically a high traffic area. Every guest checks in here when they arrive and when they leave. Debris from shoes will enter into the building.

Carpet professionals have the experience to identify the best type and quality of carpet, taking account of foot traffic, climate, and eco-friendly considerations. A dedicated professional will also make recommendations to help minimize wear and tear on your building's floor surfaces in general – add door mats and grilles for example to entry ways to minimize the impact.

Ongoing Maintenance

Regular vacuuming is the key to keeping all carpeted areas pristine.

In the real world of hospitality, you will inevitably watch a cup of coffee spill or wine glass hit the floor. Address these mishaps as soon as you can. Spot clean that area with a recommended cleaning product and move on.  

Bloomsbury Carpet has the quality products and expertise to give your hospitality business the "Wow" factor.

Senior Safety –Why Carpeting Is the Right Choice

Know your options and why carpet makes sense

Carpeting is more than just a pretty covering for your floor; for seniors it's a practical and possibly injury saving addition to their environment. From nursing homes to hospitals the use of durable slip reducing, flame retardant and water resistant carpeting has become mainstream and is proving to provide a safer environment for seniors.

Affordable and Reliable

For charm, color and perceived warmth you can't beat the impact of carpeting, but there are a few rules to keep in mind when shopping for that perfect carpet. Choose carpet that covers a large area, wall to wall is best. Any edges that will be crossed should be secured to the floor. No area rugs or indoor door mats. They slide and roll easily and can be hazardous to those with less than secure footing. The carpet you choose should be low or lower in pile height and have a non-slip backing or installed pad. Again the pad height shouldn't be overly thick.

Better Grip Means No Slip

Seniors who walk unassisted, and those who use a cane or walker to stabilize themselves, all benefit from the texture of carpeting. It prevents equipment, and shoes or bare feet, from slipping. Even wet or damp carpet reduces the fall risk by offering better grip underfoot, and studies show that seniors who do slip and fall on a carpeted floor are twice as likely to avoid serious injuries.

There Are Plenty of Choices

There are plenty of good reasons to consider carpeting for seniors but improved safety is the most important reason of all.

Quality Carpet In The USA vs. Hand-Loomed From India

How to tell the difference

Choosing a quality carpet or rug is an investment expected to provide years of use. Many imported rugs from India attempt to mimic high-end carpet but are actually of inferior quality. Imported products may be appealing for several reasons, but making an informed and knowledgeable decision will protect your investment. Purchasing carpet made in America ensures that the rug you chose is a quality product, and provides the durability and beauty expected from a high-end carpet.

Woven vs. Tufted

Construction type is a significant factor that determines the quality and performance of any rug or carpet. The two primary methods are easy to identify and provide a good indication of quality.

Woven carpet and rugs use a process of interlacing face yarns and backing yarns at a right angle which are then knotted to form a finished product. The reverse side of a woven carpet is recognizable by the noticeable knots and pattern on the back of the piece. Several methods of weaving are used to create high-quality carpet and rugs, and typically high-end carpets are woven.

Tufted rugs use a manufacturing process that does not use knots. The technique takes considerably less time than weaving, reducing production costs and creating an affordable product that is easily mass produced. Tufted rugs may use high-quality wool but shed due to the construction technique used. Lower quality tufted carpet or rugs can be identified by the material covering the reverse side, concealing the construction.

Hand Knotted vs. Hand Loomed

Hand Knotted rugs are woven, may consist of over 240 knots per square inch, and take months to complete. Each hand-knotted rug is a unique, one of a kind product that is durable, able to withstand heavy traffic, and will last 20 or more years.

A new type of tufted rug from India called India "hand loomed" and India "loomed by hand" has created confusion and disappointment among consumers. This new type of rug mimics the appearance of a high-quality carpet and is being presented and priced as such. The process of hand looming uses a loom which presses fiber strands together and connects them with a thin thread. The technique leaves the ends and sides of the finished product unsecured and rugs are crafted in hours rather than months.

Conclusion

When purchasing a rug or carpet, it is beneficial to have a basic knowledge of rug and carpet construction techniques. Choosing a rug made in America by a manufacturer such as Bloomsburg will ensure that you avoid costly mistakes and receive the best value and highest-quality carpet available.
