Advantages & Disadvantages
The main advantages of sisal carpet are that it has a low impact on the environment and that it is durable and non-toxic. The natural materials of sisal carpet make it an excellent choice for homes of people with allergies or asthma. Sisal is also quite easy to dye, which allows it to be customizable and available in a vast array of colors, prints, and patterns.
However, the flipside of being so easy to dye is that sisal carpet is also prone to staining. So, it’s best not to have sisal carpet installed in an area that is frequently at risk for stains. Additionally, sisal carpet can feel somewhat rough underfoot, so don’t plan to sit or lie on it as often as you would with a plush weave carpet.
Because we are backed by leading manufacturers, we have access to the many variations of sisal carpet available. Give us a call at FCI Austin today to explore our brightly-colored, patterned sisal carpet options.
