6 Benefits of carpets for your home
If you’re struggling to decide what flooring to install in your home, read on to discover why carpet is a wise decision not just today, but in the future too.
Carpet helps protect your family
With a soft, fluffy surface resting on a bed of squashy underlay, carpet dramatically increases the safety of your home when compared to hard floor alternatives. So, whether you’ve got a toddler taking their first wobbly steps or teens racing around the house, you can be sure that when you choose carpet your family will be protected from any trips or falls.
Reduces noise for a peaceful atmosphere
Thanks to its soft sound absorbing material, carpet is excellent at keeping noise levels in your home to a minimum. As well as softening noisy footsteps, carpet helps reduce noise travelling between rooms to create a peaceful and restful atmosphere and helping you ignore the strange music being blasted from upstairs.
Improves your energy consumption
As carpet acts as an extra layer of insulation, it helps trap warm air in your home by stopping it escaping through gaps in the floorboards. Not only does this help you reduce your energy consumption, which is great for the planet, but it also helps lower your energy bills, which is great for your wallet.
Carpet comes in a range of styles
One of the main reasons carpet is such a popular flooring choice is because it is available in what seems to be an endless choice of colours, textures and styles, so whether your home is minimalist chic or traditional country cottage, you’re sure to find the perfect fit for your style.
It’s easy to clean and maintain
Another benefit that makes carpet the first choice of flooring in many homes is the fact that it’s super easy to maintain, especially when compared to some hard wood floors that need special treatment each year. Indeed, carpet is much less demanding and only requires a regular vacuuming to keep it happy. For high traffic areas and light-coloured carpets, a deeper clean every now and then is recommended to keep it looking in tip top condition.
Carpet is sustainable
Thanks to the development in technology and increased public awareness of the importance of sustainable living, recycling initiatives make it possible to give old carpet a new lease of life as new carpet or other products. So, you can rest assured that when you choose carpet for your home today, it will still be a fantastic decision in years to come.
