Wall-to-wall carpeting often gets a bad reputation. Yet, carpet is such a versatile type of flooring. Did you know that carpeting actually accounts for more than half of all flooring purchases every year? Carpet offers many advantages that other types of flooring do not. Here, we’ll show you some of the many advantages of a home with wall-to-wall carpet.
Carpet is great in rooms like the bedroom, the family room and other rooms where you’d like to have something cozy under your feet while you’re typically walking barefoot. It’s much nicer to walk on a soft carpet than a cold floor with bare feet. Carpeting also makes a room appear more homey when you first walk into it, so it’s aesthetically pleasing.
Installation and soundproofing
Carpeting adds an extra layer of insulation between the floorboards of your home. Carpet will build a sound barrier between the upstairs and downstairs, for example. Carpet reduces noise from foot traffic in your home as well as blocks the transmission of sound. This creates a soundproofing of sorts between rooms with carpet and those rooms without it.
Carpet is much more slip resistant than hardwood or tile floors. If you have children, they’re at risk of taking falls. Wouldn’t it be better for them to fall on a soft carpet rather then a hard, cold floor? We think yes! Carpeting in playrooms and bedrooms is a great way to add a built-in safety feature to your home.
Flexibility in decor
Since carpet comes in so many different styles and colors, it’s certain that you can find a carpet that is perfect for any room. The possibilities are endless! The color and style of your carpet can be the foundation of the decorating scheme for a room.
Carpet is low in cost compared to other tapes of flooring. It can be professionally installed at a price that won’t break the bank. Since the cost per square foot is lower, you can cover a bigger portion of your home with carpet on a tight budget.
The allergy factor
While carpeting is thought of to be a bad thing for allergies, some studies have shown that carpeting can actually help keep the air in your home cleaner. This is because it traps allergens. Of course, you must make sure your carpet is properly cleaned and maintained. Carpets are easy to maintain and care for. There are many proven carpet cleaning and stain removal methods available.
Hide floor damage
If a floor in your home is damaged, it may be more cost-effective to install a carpet rather than installing a completely new floor. It’s safe to cover a damaged floor with carpeting. Installing a wall-to-wall carpet in a room with an old floor can make the room appear like new.
