There are many homeowners today who are ditching carpet in favor of vinyl tiles and hardwood flooring. But we do not think you should close the book on carpet! In fact, we think that there are many advantages in favor of carpeting, at least for some parts of your home. Here are a few reasons we are fans of this flooring material.
Hardwood flooring is hard on feet and joints because there is no transfer of force. Each impact is sent right back through your body. Ever notice how much your feet ache after standing and walking on hard surfaces for a long time? That is why. Alternatively, carpet is a natural shock absorber. Under padding coupled with plush piles makes carpet gentle to walk on, lay on, and stand on.
Understandably, hardwood flooring can be quite slippery. And if you have ever had the unpleasant experience of falling onto hardwood floors you know that it can hurt. Carpet, on the other hand, provides a soft cushiony surface to land on should you ever trip. In addition, it can stop you from ever tripping in the first place by providing adequate traction when moving about. Especially in babies rooms or on the stairs, carpet can prove to be a safe choice.
Adding insulation is another bonus when it comes to carpet. Especially during the Colorado winters. Carpets are a fantastic way to add warmth to your home and keep it in. This, in turn, will reduce your energy expenditure since your system will not have to work as hard to maintain a desired temperature. Ultimately saving you money. Cozy and cost effective.
Some people relate carpet as being old, dingy, and musty. But carpet can actually be quite stylish. Choosing the right color and style of carpet can make a room feel luxurious and elegant.
Comfort, style, safety, and warmth are just a few great reasons to consider having at least some carpet in your home. One reason many people become fed up with this flooring material comes down to the development of imperfections. Buckles, ripples, burns, and holes can be bothersome. Most of the time, the solution to problems like these is not a complete replacement.
