More and more homeowners are considering the benefits of installing hardwood in their home. Not only does it look good, but it works nicely in almost every room.
Even though some people are leaving carpet in the past, this remains one of the most popular flooring options.
Most realize that carpet is comfortable, both on the feet and when sitting on the floor. While this may be the most well known benefit, there are others that you need to consider. Here are three to keep in mind:
1. Improves indoor air quality. It is a common myth that carpeting leads to more allergens. The exact opposite is true, with studies showing that people with allergies and asthma experience improvement with carpet.
2. Soften the blow in the event of a slip and fall. Do you worry about your young child falling on hardwood or ceramic tile? With carpet, the impact is much less painful. Not to mention the fact that there is less chance of injury.
3. Reduces noise. From computers to televisions to home theater systems, many people load their home up with electronics that can be loud from time to time. By adding carpet with a high quality pad, you can reduce most sounds, including footsteps.
