Though hardwood and vinyl have recently increased in popularity, carpet will never be a thing of the past. Some places in the home are just better suited to a soft floor covering than a hard one. The bedroom is one of the best examples of this. The bedroom is a cozy sanctuary from the bustle and activity of the rest of the home. The softness, quiet, and warmth of carpet often make it the best flooring option for this private retreat.
Carpet absorbs sound and is virtually silent to walk on. It is the quietest and often the least expensive soundproof flooring. Carpet reduces background sounds in a room. Pets and children, as well as adults, will make very little noise walking on carpeted floors.
In a way, carpet can make a room warmer. It helps to keep heat in, so you do not have to use as much of it. That, combined with the fact that it is warm to touch, is soft and typically budget-friendly, helps make carpeting a winning choice.
Carpet is a very cushiony material that is comfortable underfoot and provides some protection against injury from falls. A high-quality carpet pad beneath the carpeting can significantly improve both the comfort and safety of the flooring. Carpeting is also the safest type of flooring option for stairs.
Carpet fibers HELP those who suffer from allergies because it traps soil, dust and other potential allergens. If the allergens are in the carpeting, they are not circulating in your indoor air stream. When it comes time to vacuum, use one with a high-efficiency particulate air filter (HEPA filter). With regular vacuuming and periodic professional hot-water extraction carpet cleaning, allergies should not be an issue.
While hard surface flooring might have its fair share of the market, there will always be a place for carpeting.
