Custom Masland Carpet made with 100% Zeftron nylon: Installation in Senior Living Facilities

Commercial carpet products made with Zeftron nylon can be found in the world’s most stylish hotels, airports and universities across the country. We are excited about our latest installation in two upscale senior living facilities.

RLPS Interiors, a firm with extensive experience in the senior living market, was charged with designing the interiors of two facilities serving senior patients and residents. RLPS needed a carpet that would not only provide a warm and inviting aesthetic, but also match the client’s overall design concept.

This unique project required a custom carpet product. RLPS reached out to our mill partner, Masland Hospitality for a solution. Starting with stock patterns from Masland Hospitality, the designers altered the patterns slightly to make them more accommodating to the needs of the residents at each facility and then applied custom colors using Zeftron nylon colors.

Color was a key factor for the project. Senior Interior Designer Derek Perini felt Zeftron’s sophisticated color palette stood out above other nylon options.  “We preferred Zeftron due to the richness of the colors available” he said. Zeftron is also a fully renewable nylon and contains a minimum of 25 percent recycled content in every color.

In total, more than 7,000 square yards of carpet were specified for the facilities covering corridors, elevators, hallways, lobbies and other common areas.

Utilizing Masland Hospitality’s Tapistron technology, the carpet features rich earth-toned colors and elegant patterns. The result is a perfectly matched flooring product that meets both the facilities’ and the client’s desired design concept.

Today’s Workplace Design: Three Benefits of Carpet

The office of today is not what it used to be. Gone are the days of gray walls and tiny cubes separating the individual from the masses. The new workplace is open, airy, colorful and brand-driven. Now more than ever design is critical to achieving collaboration, inspiration and maximum productivity.

 

But how does a designer come up with the perfect interior for a client? Unfortunately, there is no secret formula. Instead it changes with every space that is created. But what doesn’t change is the need to connect the design aesthetic of the environment to the functional needs of those occupying the space.

The floor is typically the largest surface of any interior space. As a result, the flooring product you select can play a major role in both that space’s design and functionality. What can help you make the decision to choose carpet over other floor coverings for the next commercial space you design?  Below are three points to consider:

Acoustics: It’s well-known that quieter environments can foster greater focus and attention. Global design firm HOK lists this as one of their top 10 trends influencing workplace design today, and we agree. One of carpet’s best features is sound absorption, which can help reduce unwanted noise and create more productive employees.

Color: Carpet ain’t what it used to be! Our mill partners work hard to create amazing carpets that are not only beautiful, but highly stylish and versatile. We recently released seven new colors called the Brilliant Collection, which include colors like Lemon, Hot Pink, & Electric Blue to name a few. Why is that important? Research shows that bright colors not only add a spark of energy to a space, it can also foster greater engagement and activity.

Branding: Earlier this year Building Design & Construction posted an in-depth look at how millennials respond to workplace design. The new workplace is quickly filling up with this young generation and they expect a branded feel to their workspace. High-quality design in the workplace is a competitive advantage and will help with recruitment and retention of millennials, and all employees. Carpet offers the flexibility and customization to create a branded feel for your project.

What are other important factors when you specify carpet for your projects?  When choosing a commercial grade carpet, we have talked in the past about the importance of knowing the traffic the space will receive, as well as the maintenance plan for the space.
