Room of the Year Competition is open!
Introducing, Room Of The Year Competition 2024 – the very first!
You can enter your room, installed with Godfrey Hirst, Hycraft by Godfrey Hirst, Feltex or Redbook carpet or hard flooring for a chance to win!*
Homeowners and retail stores who have recently completed a project featuring carpet or hard flooring by Godfrey Hirst, Hycraft by Godfrey Hirst, Feltex or Redbook are invited to submit rooms that show flooring integrated into the overall design.
The competition provides an opportunity to celebrate flooring as the fifth wall. As one of the largest areas in a room, the floor contributes to the overall aesthetic and ambiance of the space. This competition aims to showcase rooms with great design that effortlessly harmonise form and function, creating spaces that captivate the senses while seamlessly enhancing the practical aspects of daily living.
