Reasons You Should Install Carpet In Your Home

If you are planning to replace the flooring in your home, you know that you have many options. And while there are benefits to all different types of flooring, you may want to consider carpeting for your house. Many people underestimate the value of good carpet in their home. Learn about some of the reasons you should think about installing carpet in your home. Then, you can better decide if carpet is the best choice for your new flooring.

Carpet Makes a Space Warmer

One of the biggest benefits of carpet as opposed to other types of flooring is that carpet adds warmth to a space, literally and figuratively. When you install carpet in your home, you will be adding insulation to the floors (with both the carpet pad and the carpet itself). 

This can save you money when you have heating bills to worry about in the winter months. You will also avoid the cold feet you can get on wood or other flooring in the winter. 

Carpet Is More Comfortable

Another benefit of carpet is that it is more comfortable in general underfoot. You will get cushioning when you walk from the carpet and the pad underneath. You can also more comfortably lay or sit on the floor when you have carpets rather than other types of flooring. 

Carpet Insulates Sound

When it comes to flooring options, carpet is the best when it comes to dealing with sound. Wood, linoleum, laminate, and other types of floors all transmit and even amplify sound. Carpet absorbs sound instead. If you are hoping to have a quiet home, you should definitely install carpeting rather than other flooring.

Carpeting is especially good if you have children that will be running around on the floors. You will not hear stomping and thumping as much. 

Carpet Can Be Safer

In addition to all of the other benefits, carpeted floors can be safer than other options. Wood and other flooring can be slick underfoot and can cause a person to slip and fall.

Carpeting does not have this problem. If you will have older people like elderly parents in your home or you have children, you want to have floors that prevent slipping and sliding, and carpeting is the solution to that potential problem. 

Now that you know just a few of the reasons to install carpet in your home, you can head to the carpet store and get your new flooring as soon as possible.

About Me

flooring for a home filled with dogs and kids

I have three dogs and four kids - all of which can be very damaging to my home. When the kids were very small, I wanted to have carpeting in every room of the house to make floor time and learning to walk a little more comfortable for them. As they grew older, their messes also grew, so I had to find another flooring option that can withstand all of the abuse of the dogs and the kids. There are several flooring options that can withstand the abuse that those little creatures put it through.
