Deciding on the right flooring material for your home can be a chore nowadays. There’s a multitude of different options to choose from, each with their own benefits and negatives. However, carpet is easily the best choice. Its softness and customizability have made it the number one flooring choice for homeowners all over the country. Here are eight reasons why carpet is the best choice for you!

1. Comfort

Whether it’s feeling the plush carpet under your feet after a long day at work or cuddling with your children for some family time, carpet is your go-to flooring choice. There are even different carpet types to suit your desires; all give you that cloud-like texture you’ll love.

2. Colour

Another benefit of carpet is the number of colours to choose from. From colours inspired by nature to more modern and striking tones, your carpet can best reflect not only you but your home in whatever way you desire.

3. Versatility 

Thanks to the massive selection of colours, patterns, and styles, carpet lets homeowners include it wherever they want. Some manufacturers even offer colour blends to enhance the carpet’s versatility. 

4. No Stains

Naturally, stains are one of the biggest fears for carpet owners, yet thanks to modern innovations, they’re easier to clean than ever! Many brands offer specific carpeting designed to prevent stain absorption from ruining your carpeting, with some specializing in pets or kids.

5. Customizability

Area rugs are an excellent way to add a splash of colour to any room in your home. Even with hard-surface flooring, carpet can still be used to create a custom area rug that matches your home perfectly. 

6. Insulation

By combining soft carpet with a good quality carpet pad (it’s recommended to search for a pad meant for sound absorption), you can create better sound insulation and noise reduction within your home. If you have kids or pets, this can be an incredibly useful feature. 

7. Memorization

Although normal carpet doesn’t possess any, you can select memory foam carpet padding if you want cushioned floors. These are perfect for bedrooms and living rooms, providing both softness and excellent durability while increasing life expectancy.

8. All-Natural

Modern carpets have become incredibly eco-friendly, like PET carpets made from recycled plastics. These are incredibly economical for families and perfect for kid’s rooms or playrooms. Not only are these carpets green, manufacturers today have strived to decrease VOC presence in new carpet.
