Dan’s Introduction To Carpet
Carpet is one of our most popular flooring choices and is our best selling product. It’s easy to see why. The positives of having carpet fitted in your home are numerous.
The abundance of styles and designs available from modern carpeting provides you with literally thousands of possibilities. With such a varied choice of colours, patterns and pile heights, the right carpet makes it possible to create the image you want for your home or your business.
The first and most obvious benefit of carpet is the feeling of warmth and comfort under foot. It provides a soft cushioning between you and the floor making it more comfortable to walk around your home in bare feet. Additionally, it creates a softer space for small children to play on and removes the likelihood of a slip and fall accident occurring.
Secondly, carpet can help absorb sound and improve the acoustics of your room. This is really useful on staircases and will cut down the sound of feet on floorboards.
Installing carpet throughout your home will also insulate you home and will save money on your energy costs. By adding layers of underlay and carpet you will stop heat from escaping into the concrete or space beneath your floors. Additionally, carpet provides a psychological feeling of warmth.
There are some obvious areas within your home where carpet may not be suitable, high traffic areas, where there may be potential for muddy foot and paw marks; bathrooms and kitchen areas aren’t recommended.
