A decision that all homeowners must make at some point in time is whether or not they want a hardwood or a carpeted floor in a specific room in their abode. Although each has their benefits, there is a strong argument to be made that a carpeted floor or a floor covering is the way to go. Let’s look at four reasons why carpeted floors are your best bet.
1) It adds a bit of panache to your home. Hardwood floors look exactly like the way they sound. If you’ve seen one hardwood floor, you’ve pretty much seen them all. Conversely, choosing to go the carpet route provides you with countless options, especially in the décor department. You can choose from an array of colors and patterns and that carpet can serve as the foundation of the room’s décor.
2) Who doesn’t like a little extra cushion in their life? Have you ever tried lying down or sitting on a hardwood floor when all other furniture seats are taken? Not very comfortable. Do you suffer from foot pain or back pain? Again, habitually walking on a hardwood floor is not going to be very prudent idea. On the other hand, a carpeted floor provides that extra cushion that allows you to walk lightly on your feet, and in the case of trying to find a place to sit in a crowded room, you are able to sit or lie down for longer than two minutes before your body starts hurting.
3) It helps with the acoustics of a room. Carpeted floors have a superior sound absorption rating than their hardwood counterparts, which has to be appealing to people who enjoy a little peace and quiet.
4) Carpets continue to evolve and thanks to new designs and technologies, they are now as easy to clean and maintain as ever before, making them a wonderful investment.
