Carpet Features That Make Your Living Spaces Cosy
Carpet flooring is as versatile as the spaces that you can use it in are. Whether the winter months continue to bring cooler days, or the sunny season bring warmer days, carpets are always in style. Here, we’ve picked out our top reasons why you should look into carpet trends when preparing to style your home.
1. Provides insulation
Carpet provides warmth and comfort to any space as it retains between 10% and 12% of the heat which would otherwise be lost by a hard floor. It provides very good thermal insulation and helps maintain a consistent level of warmth in all rooms, thus delivering significant energy savings. Carpet also provides a comfortable place to sit, play or work and gives a room an overall warmer feeling.
2. Adds individual elegance and flair
You can choose from an endless array of styles and colours. That means that ultimately your choice will reflect how you want to express and personalise your living space. Carpet provides a wonderful neutral foundation. Alternatively, with stronger, bolder, more vibrant colours and patterns, carpet can create a very individual design statement.
3. Softens slips and falls
Carpet is the ideal option for softening footsteps, and reducing slips and falls. Statistics show that fewer falls occur on carpets than on hard floors and that when accidents do occur that they are less serious. Carpet provides safety and protection for the whole family, but especially for toddlers and older individuals.
4. Reduces noise
Our homes are increasingly becoming noisy places with big screen TVs, and modern surround sound systems. Installing carpet helps to absorb the sounds of everyday life. Carpet also works as a sound barrier between floors by helping to block sound transmission to rooms below. And carpet on stairs helps mask the sound of constant foot traffic. This makes it the go-to choice for apartment living and two story houses.
No need for a mop, bucket, or boom! A simple clean with your vacuum cleaner at least once a week is all you need to keep your new carpet in pristine condition. It is advisable to freshen it up with a deeper clean from time to time using a carpet dry powder, which is available from your local Tile Wizards store.
