Home Flooring: The Benefits of Carpet

Trying to decide between wood floors and carpeted floors? Both have their ups and downs, but in the end, your choice will come down to personal taste. This week, we’ll talk about the benefits of carpeted floors in your home.

The Benefits of Carpeted Floors


In terms of initial costs, carpet is less expensive than hardwood floors. However, you will most likely have higher maintenance costs, because carpets need to be steam cleaned regularly and replaced every so often.


Carpet’s soft feel is one of the biggest benefits of carpeted floors. It’s soft on your feet and it’s easy to stand, sit, or even lay on. This makes for a nice, relaxed aesthetic in carpeted rooms.


Carpet acts as an insulator for the room, trapping heat inside. This is especially great for the winter because it helps keep heat in your house where it belongs.


Unlike hardwood, which allows sound to travel, carpet muffles sound, making for a quieter more peaceful house. You won’t be disturbed by loud footsteps on a carpeted floor.


If you have kids, carpet also serves as a way to make the room safer. If kids are playing, it can cushion trips and falls that would hurt more on a hardwood floor.
