Types of Carpet
Did you know that carpet continues to be the most popular flooring option in homes and businesses? Nothing can quite add style and comfort to a space like a new, quality carpet. Not convinced? Here are some of the features that make carpet a great choice:
Design versatility: Carpets, unlike many other flooring options, are available in a wide variety of colors and styles. Whether you want a traditional design or something modern, there’s certainly a perfect carpet choice. For extra style, be sure to take a look at patterned carpet.
Comfort: There’s no doubt that carpet is extremely comfortable underfoot. The surface is soft and warm, so it’s great for standing or sitting. Other flooring options, including hardwood and tile, can be rather hard and cold. Carpet also can be installed with special carpet padding for extra comfort and support underfoot.
Quiet: Carpet has a cushioned surface, so it is relatively quiet. Noisy footsteps will never be an issue. Also, carpet has special acoustical qualities, so it actually absorbs noise in a room. Loud televisions will therefore not seem as loud from other rooms in the home!
Non-slip: As you can imagine, carpet’s surface is considered non-slip, so you won’t have to worry as much about children and pets running through the house. Plus, if your child or pet ever falls, the soft carpet will act as a cushion.
Indoor air quality: Carpet’s surface traps dust, dirt, and harmful allergens and keeps them from floating around the air. They can then simply be vacuumed from the surface
