CHOOSING A CARPET FOR YOUR HOME CINEMA

CHOOSING A CARPET FOR YOUR HOME CINEMA

 

With awards season in full swing and the Oscars fast approaching it is the perfect time to grab some popcorn and start planning your perfect home cinema.

When planning a home cinema, a bespoke carpet not only provides a warm, cosy environment for curling up to watch your favourite film, but it is also the best option for creating the optimal audio experience.  The key to this is sound absorption.

“The use of carpet makes a huge difference in a cinema room”, advises Osman Khalfey, Director at Knightsbridge Audio Visual. “In a home cinema the aim is to introduce as many soft furnishings as possible to reduce reflections and echoing in the room. This means you achieve the most accurate surround experience in a room.  With the right speaker placement of course, which is where we come in!”

Our favourite options for home cinema carpets are our worsted wool and our 50/50 wool/silk spun pass machine.  A firm favourite amongst the Loomah team, our 50/50 wool/silk spun combine the lustre and softness of silk with the durability of wool and feels wonderfully sumptuous underfoot.  Our worsted wool is our highest grade wool and offers a luxurious smooth velvet finish alongside all the benefits of wool carpet.

“Whilst our hand tufted carpets offer the ultimate luxury and design”, says Andrew Cotgrove, Manging Director at Loomah, “when it comes to choosing a bespoke carpet for your cinema, we would prioritise the feeling under foot over the design”.

Loomah’s pass machine carpets are custom made to order and can be dyed to any colour and supplied to fit any room size and shape in one piece without seams.

Home cinemas often include multiple levels for optimal viewing experience.   The beauty of both our hand tufted carpets and our and pass machine carpets is that everything is custom made to order to the exact room size and shape.  Our expert installation team will measure and draw up the plans on CAD which are then sent to our production team who will make the bespoke carpet exactly as per the plan, ensuring minimal wastage.  Our skilled fitters are also adept at installing our bespoke carpets around complex lighting which is often fixed to the nosing of the steps.
