Even though hardwood floors seem to take up more pages of interior design magazines in recent times than any other flooring option—carpet continues to hold its own as a timeless choice that never goes out of fashion.
Even though we love the beauty of other flooring options like hardwood, laminate, vinyl, and waterproof flooring—we've always loved carpet. Here are 10 reasons why we believe it's one of the most beautiful ways to reimagine your home all year 'round:
1. Soft Like a Cloud
The simple fact is: you can’t curl up and relax in front of the fireplace on hardwood floors or tiles. Carpet, on the other hand, is the perfect place to kick off your shoes, feel the softness between your toes, stretch out, and play a while.
2. Warmth—Physically & Visually
Apart from feeling like you’re walking on clouds on a daily basis, carpet flooring also adds softness and warmth to your home’s overall style. And because it provides excellent insulation to any space, it reduces heat loss and lessens your energy bill.
3. Options, Options, Options
Carpet is the ultimate in versatility. There are countless possibilities in terms of brands, color tones, looks, and fibers and carpet can add a beautiful, stunning design element that is uniquely you.
Like it or not, you spend a lot of time on your feet in your home whether it’s cooking in the kitchen or tidying up after the kids—carpet literally cushions the impact on your feet and body by providing flexibility and softness underfoot.
5. Quiet & Peaceful
Carpet is the perfect sound-absorber, helping to keep your space quiet and peaceful since the sound has less hard surfaces to bounce off of to create echos. Sound carriers a lot less when there’s carpet and adding quality padding underneath further intensify this ability.
6. A Soft Landing
There’s less chance of slipping on carpet and if you or the kids do happen to fall over, carpet will be a much softer landing. In other words: you’ll fall head over heels in the best possible way.
7. Easy Care
Technology advancements mean that many carpet products are created with stain protection built right into the very fibers of the carpet. This means that you are protected from the point of installation, without ever having to add any chemicals afterward.
8. Breathe Easy, Hypoallergenic
But just like the stain and odor protection mentioned above, hypoallergenic fibers are also now available. These materials help to trap and hold allergens, rendering them harmless. All you need to do then is simply vacuum them up, and be done with it.
Carpet expenditure proves to be more cost-effective over the full life of the product making it one of the least expensive floor covering options available and since the options are endless it means that carpet fits any budget.
10. Goodbye, Stains & Odors
If you’ve never considered carpet for fear of stains and odors, we have great news! New advancements in technology now allow manufacturers to offer products that are created with stain protection built right into the very fibers of the carpet. This means that you are protected from the point of installation, without ever having to add any chemicals afterward.
