These days, carpet has fallen out of popularity in exchange for the convenience and beauty of hardwood flooring. There are some valid reasons for this; people find carpet to be more difficult to clean, for example. However, there are also a lot of positives to carpet that outweigh the negative. Here are just a few of the many reasons why you might find carpet as the right flooring choice for your home.
New and Improved
Often people who claim that they don’t like carpet are picturing the terrible carpets they remember growing up with, that would get matted, dirty, and worn. But carpet has gotten better by leaps and bounds over the years. Now you can find stain resistant carpet options as well as those with added durability, and in some cases, carpet can even be treated to be fire-resistant.
Although hardwood, tile, and laminate flooring have their benefits, it can’t beat the comfort of carpet. Carpet flooring is perfect for lounge areas or family spaces where people like to sit on the floor. As well as being comfortable, carpet reduces noise, which is good if you have an area like a bedroom where loud echoing footsteps would be a disturbance. And since carpet comes in as many, if not more, colors and styles as most flooring materials, you can easily incorporate it into any room’s design.
For anyone still on the fence about carpet, the price tag could be the deciding factor. On average carpet could run a thousand-dollars less than hardwood at least. The fact that carpet is made of more readily available materials and is easier to install are all factors that contribute to its low price.
