As the only available soft surface flooring, you get amazing underfoot softness and comfort. Not only is it excellent to walk and stand on, but it makes an excellent play space for young children. At the same time, it can prevent slips and falls, yet if they do happen, it can often alleviate the possibility of serious injury.
The same softness that makes it safe and warm can also reduce the noise levels in your home, especially between floors. A little peace and quiet goes a long way and carpet can help make that an everyday occurrence, even with children, pets, or frequent guests moving through your home.
Be sure to research available fiber options for the carpet you choose. While we all want the plushest, softest flooring available, not all fibers are created the same. Some stand up far better to higher levels of foot traffic than others do. If you have an extremely active household, it’s important that the fiber you choose meet that level. Otherwise, your flooring will never live up to its expected lifespan.
