SYLKA™ Carpets says that this summer’s superyacht flooring trends are neutral shades

Based upon recent orders and enquiries for yacht builds and refits, award-winning company SYLKA™ Carpets believes that whites and other neutral shades could dominate this summer season.

The UK headquartered firm that operates across the Mediterranean and other popular destinations are increasing stock of its innovative faux-silk carpets in these clean and simple shades in anticipation of increased demand from designers, captains, crew and boat builders.

It believes that soft floor coverings continue to be a popular choice for new boats, as well as refurbishments of existing vessels thanks to its luxurious feel.

SYLKA™’s unique collection of products all benefit from its innovative NuSilk™ micro fibre system.

NuSilk™ features superior weathering properties in comparison to natural and organic fibres and is inherently highly resistant to fungi, moulds, mildew, and many chemicals.

Easy to clean and maintain, man-made micro fibre carpets, such as NuSilk™ are the ideal solution for modern vessels that want a luxury, lustrous look.

Steve Farrell, Founder and Managing Director at SYLKA™ Marine and its parent company SYLKA™ Carpets, said: “White and neutral shades seem to be really popular now, particularly amongst those looking to refit their yachts ahead of the summer season.

“Advances in fibre technology mean that today’s carpets and rugs are far more durable when they are maintained correctly compared to natural fibre carpets such as bamboo, viscose and silk.

“This helps crews to keep carpets in a better condition for longer and with less effort, while still maintaining the crisp look that many owners love.”

The team at SYLKA™ also continue to see increased demand for its Hand Tufted service, which allows designers and builders of yachts to create bespoke hand-crafted rugs and carpets that are created by skilled craftsmen.

“Exclusivity remains a key factor in interior design for yachts, so the ability to produce one-off products is massively appealing, which is why handmade fixtures, floorings and fittings, such as our own Hand Tufted service, are so in demand at the moment,” added Steve.
