Carpets are one of the most popular flooring options in the UK, and for good reason too. In this blog post, we share just some of the many benefits of carpets. We hope these benefits will help you see why carpets are such a popular flooring choice.

If you would like to check out our range of carpets, pop into our carpet showroom in Peterborough. We would be happy to show you around and help you choose the best flooring for your home. We also have plenty of room-size remnants and a large selection of our best-value roll stock.

So, let’s look at the benefits of carpets for your home.

Appearance

With so many different colours, styles, patterns, textures and thicknesses of carpets, you are bound to find the right one for your home, tastes and needs. There are so many carpets to choose from that you will be able to find one that perfectly matches the aesthetics of the room that it is going into. The right carpet will help you create the look you want for your home.

Insulation

If you are looking for a great energy-saving flooring option, then carpets are for you. Due to their thickness, they add to the insulation of your home, keeping your rooms warmer. Carpets also look and feel warm and cosy. This can add to the psychological feeling of being warm. This is ideal, especially in those colder winter months. Choosing wool content or a higher tog-rated carpet will further assist in insulation. Don’t just take our word for it, check out the advice from one of the leading carpet manufacturers; Abingdon Flooring

Softness

Most carpets are soft, some are extremely soft. In turn, this can make them feel incredibly cosy underfoot. If you are looking to make your home feel more welcoming and homelier, then carpets will help you achieve this. A carpet will also be softer and easier on your feet than a hard wooden floor, for example.

Safety

If you have young children or elderly people, even older pets, a hard floor can be a safety hazard. Slips will be more likely as a hard floor such as laminate flooring has less grip. The impact of the fall will also be harder compared with a carpeted floor, which means that you will be far less likely to become badly injured if you were to fall or slip on a carpet.

Acoustics

Families have busy homes, and this can mean noisy homes. Research shows that carpets will actually absorb sounds within the room. This will result in less noise and less echoing too. If you are looking to further enhance the acoustics in your room, then a thicker carpet with a sound-reducing underlay can help you with this.

Health

Carpets are also beneficial to the health of you and your family too. A carpet will trap allergens, dust and other contaminants until you vacuum. This is something that hard floors are totally unable to do. Instead, the dust, allergens and other contaminants will just sit on the flooring.

Easy To Maintain

Carpets are really easy to maintain. All you will need to do is vacuum your home on a weekly basis. If you have pets or messier children, then you may want to hoover two to three times a week. This will help you keep your carpet in its best possible condition. Carpets should also be professionally cleaned every two years to adhere to the manufacturer’s warranty. Why not head over to our aftercare and maintenance page for lots more information? If you are unsure about which vacuum to use, feel free to read our post about vacuum cleaners

So, now you know the benefits of carpets for your home, why not start thinking about the sort of carpets you would like in your home? Need a hand deciding, just give our flooring experts a call.
