When it comes to bare feet, nothing beats carpet. Carpet is soft, warm, cozy, friendly, and perfect for both families and businesses depending on the variety you choose. So, if you’re searching for the perfect flooring for your home, here are the top 7 benefits that a good carpet can offer.
1. Carpet is Warm
We’ve all had the experience of stepping out onto a cold tile or hardwood floor in the morning. If you’re barefoot, it’s not something you enjoy. Carpet, however, is never cold to walk on and it always feels great between bare toes, no matter how early it is.
2. Carpet is Nonslip
Slip and fall accidents are a serious concern for many mobility-challenged Americans, seniors and the disabled in particular. While hardwood floors, tiles, and laminate can all be surprisingly slippery (particularly when wet), carpet offers good traction and cushion in case a fall does occur. This can also be beneficial if you have busy toddlers just finding their feet.
3. Energy Savings
Carpet is a fabric, and like your favorite sweater it keeps things warm. This means that your carpet actually acts as a thick layer of insulation to keep warm or cold air out and segment your floors during the summer and winter, enhancing your HVAC system’s performance and reducing energy costs.
Carpet keeps heat and cold out so that you’re comfortable. In the same way, the cushion and textile also dampens noise, helping to quiet your home. Whether you have someone playing music downstairs, gaming loudly, or running across their bedroom, carpet can cut down on noise transfer and give you peace of mind.
5. Endless Variety
No matter how many hardwood stains they come up with, carpet will always provide the best variety and range of colors and textures for homes. With a full rainbow and incredibly diverse fabric and pattern options like plush, Saxony, Berber, textured and friez, modern carpets are a more versatile and unique flooring solution than ever before.
Foot for foot carpeting offers a better value than hardwood floors, tile, and a variety of other options. Plus, replacing a carpet is decidedly easier and less messy than refinishing hardwood.
New technologies are arising that makes carpet a more ecologically friendly option for those concerned with the environment. These technologies take old carpet and recycle it into new carpeting and other products with a surprisingly low amount of waste.
