Carpet has remained a flooring favorite in homes across Vancouver, WA, and Portland, OR, for many years. Its soft feel, comfort, and warmth are unsurpassed by any other flooring material. Although some homeowners may find wall-to-wall carpeting (carpet that is fitted to cover the entire floor) impractical and outdated, we at Floor Coverings International Vancouver/Portland feel differently. Here we’ll look at the benefits of wall-to-wall carpeting and how it can improve your home.
The most obvious benefit of wall-to-wall carpet flooring is the comfort it provides. It’s soft and warm underfoot, which can be especially beneficial during colder months. On those dark and rainy days that are common during Pacific Northwest winters, it can be comforting to wrap up in a blanket and watch a movie or read a book. Carpeting provides comfort to those who prefer to do so on the floor. In many cases, it can create an overall warm and welcoming environment more so than hard-surface materials.
Another advantage of wall-to-wall carpeting is the wide variety of styles available. Between all the options for color, pattern, texture, and material on the market today, there are carpet possibilities for any décor style. Whether you’re looking for a bold pattern to make a statement or a low-pile carpet in neutral beige to simplify a space, Floor Coverings International Vancouver/Portland can help you find the perfect option for your home.
One benefit of wall-to-wall carpet that is often overlooked is the safety features it adds. If you have small children or elderly residents in your home, it can be especially important to have safe floor coverings. Carpet provides more traction than slippery materials like hardwood and ceramic tile. Its soft padding is also easier on the joints, more comfortable to stand on for long periods of time, and offers a safer place to land in the event of a fall.
Wall-to-wall carpet can also be a great flooring option for homes with a lot of activity. By having complete coverage of your floors with carpet, especially on upper levels, you create an overall quieter home. Carpet absorbs sound better than other flooring materials. Rather than letting it bounce and echo, carpet dampens the noise from footsteps and other activities that may otherwise create loud, unwanted noise.
