floor selection: the benefits of investigating carpet options
Flooring options for houses these days can be a controversial issue. Some people are faithful to the hardwood floors, while others swear allegiances to carpets and complementary colours.
There are a number of benefits to choosing carpets over hardwood floors, and not all of them have to do with the comfort of your feet during the cooler winter months (although that doesn't hurt).
Having an extra layer of insulation in your home can help you retain the warmth during winter. Not only does this work towards keeping you nice and toasty, but it can contribute towards savings made on heating bills and add to your sustainability effort.
Furthermore, if you're making up your double storey home, having another layer of sound insulation between the floors could help to retain harmony and keep everyone in the home happy.
Slip-resistance is another positive attribute of carpet, especially if you're living in a home with young children or the elderly. And if they do fall, they're less likely to get hurt falling onto carpet than hardwood. Reducing the chance of accidents will go a long way to help keep you and your family safe.
There are a wider degree of options available for carpet as well. Given the scope of colour options, working this into your overall home decor colour schemecan help to give your home a cohesive look and atmosphere.
For example, lighter colours can work in much the same way as a mirror does, by reflecting light and helping to create the illusion of space in a room. On the contrary, darker colours will help to reduce the space for a feeling of intimate luxury.
Considering your flooring options during the design phase will help you decide on the perfect option for your family home.
