Beauty and Style:
There is an abundance of carpet styles and colors to choose from. This will allow you to personalize living space. Carpet can be used as a foundation or can be incorporated to make a statement by selecting patterns, texture, and color.
Warmth and Comfort:
Carpet can retain warm air longer than other flooring materials, literally creating warmth in your living space. This material also creates a comfortable place to sit, or play and gives a room an overall feeling of warmth and comfort.
Carpet is ideal for cushioning our footsteps, reducing slips and falls and minimizes potential injuries if a fall were to occur. This can appeal to families with young children or to older individuals.
In the modern home, TVs, computers and sound systems can give the impression of home being a noisy place. Carpet helps to absorb sound, and the addition of a cushioned pad will reduce noise even more. Carpet also works as a sound barrier between upper and lower floor levels. Adding carpet to a flight of stairs may help mask the sound of foot traffic as well.
Carpet traps allergens and other toxins. In a home that requires disposal of these items, carpet allows for this to happen.
Other materials can be more labor intensive to clean than carpet. Therefore, to keep carpet clean it can cost less to maintain.
