For homeowners, we know how that internal debate can play out between hardwood and carpet. When it comes to remodelling your home and figuring out which flooring suits your style and makes the most sense, it can make you want to avoid the situation altogether.
Hardwood flooring is timeless, but it’s not without its flaws. It is expensive (sometimes prohibitively so if you have a large space), it is prone to flows, and it is noisier than carpet, especially if you have kids and pets running around.
That’s why carpet is still a popular choice among homeowners, especially when it comes to having something aesthetically appealing, while being practical and affordable as well.
So if you’re still scratching your head about which flooring to choose, here’s why carpet is your best bet.
Renovations are costly and every bit counts when it comes to keeping that budget under control. And carpet is still the most affordable flooring option on the market today. Plus, it has come a long way from the styles and designs that were popular throughout previous decades. If you’re looking to stay on budget without sacrificing style or comfort, carpet it the only choice to make.
Quality Design Options
Speaking of design, with the advancement of carpet quality and styles that are available today, you can select from a huge variety of designs and fabrics that will match the aesthetics and lifestyle that suits you. Whether it’s rugged and stain-resistant level loop for those high-traffic areas, or an elegant oriental rug for the dining room – you can bet you will find anything you’re looking for today.
Cost-Effective for Cleaning
For cleaning purposes, a quick regular vacuuming and an annual deep cleaning is all you need. With hardwood flooring, they often require sweeping and dusting on a daily basis, not to mention polishing, including inevitable damage from scratches that you’ll have to deal with as well.
Better Indoor Air Quality
By trapping dust and allergens in the carpet until you remove them with a good vacuuming, the air quality in your home is much higher since those particles aren’t being moved around each time someone walks around. And most Canadians spend up to 90% of our time indoors that places a great deal of worth on the quality of air you’re breathing.
Cozy and Warm
When you wake up in the morning and have to step onto a cold, hard floor, it’s never a great way to start off the day. With carpet, your toes can touch down onto that soft surface, giving you a cozy, comfortable start to the day ahead.
So ditch the design fads of expensive hardwood flooring and opt for carpeting instead. These days, you can choose just about any design and style that will enhance your interior without breaking the bank.
