Carpet is the perfect home accessory combining form and function. It adds warmth, comfort, and muffles sound, encouraging a more peaceful environment. Today’s consumers can choose from an array of fibers, textures, styles, patterns, and performance characteristics.
Beautiful carpeting represents a significant investment for homeowners, so choosing wisely is important. An informed choice about carpet requires a balance between practical considerations and style. Think about your budget, the amount of traffic the carpet will receive, and the amount of maintenance required. Some initial carpet considerations to consider include:
• Wool carpet is expensive, has an excellent crush resistance, and moderately resists stains.
• Nylon carpet has built-in static control, has excellent abrasion and crush resistance, and cleans easily.
• Tufted carpet accounts for the bulk of the carpet on today’s market in terms of style choice.
Provides Warmth and Comfort
The benefits of carpeting are many. Carpets provide thermal resistance, or R-value. In colder climates or seasons, it retains warm air longer, which conserves energy. Carpet also provides a comfortable place to sit, play or work and gives a room a warm feeling. It is especially beneficial in a home with children and babies.
Carpet is ideal for cushioning our footsteps – it simply feels better to walk on. The traction it provides may help in reducing slips and falls and it reduces the level of harm done if a fall should occur. Carpet provides safety protection for the whole family, but especially for babies and seniors.
Adds Beauty and Style
Your ultimate carpet reflects your personal style and taste and acts as a template for your home furnishings. There are literally thousands of carpet styles and colors from which to choose in a vast array of designs.
Carpets absorb sound and are indispensable in apartment buildings where a neighbor lives on top of and next to a neighbor in close proximity. Big screen televisions, speakerphones, computers, and modern sound systems contribute to the noise level in the modern home. Carpets help, and by adding a cushion padding beneath it, noise is further reduced. Carpet on stairs helps muffle the sound of foot traffic.
Protects and Lasts
When properly cleaned and cared for, carpeting will maintain its life and beauty for many years. You can keep your carpet looking great by following these simple steps:
• Preventative Maintenance – Protect your investment before problems occur.
• Vacuuming – Regular, thorough vacuuming is the single most effective way to preserve the life of your carpet.
• Professional Cleaning – Your carpet should be cleaned professionally periodically.
• Spot and Stain Removal – Remember to remove stains, spills and spots immediately after they occur.
As one of the key accessory choices for your home, select carpet that is within your budget, suits your lifestyle, and meets your design preferences as well as warmth, sound insulation, quality, and cost. Carpet that is cared for will last for years to come.
