6 Reasons for Choosing Carpets Calgary for your Home

by Nelsons Finch Home decor specialist

Carpets and hardwood flooring are cherished by almost everyone. Both have a classical appeal to them. There are many new and sophisticated floor materials including tiles, laminates and stones, but if you are ready to spend a little more, the soft and comfy feel of carpet flooring can be unmatched in its elegance and feel. The following guide provides you valuable insights into why carpet could be the best choice for your Calgary home.

1. Lesser Slips and Falls

If you have carpets in your rooms, there are lesser chances that you will slip and fall. If there is someone in the family who has issues with balance, carpets make safer flooring materials. Install thicker carpets to provide better padding if the person falls. Carpets can however provide protection against slips and falls in the first place.

2. Carpet is not as Expensive as Hardwood

Hardwood is an expensive natural resource. It is costlier both to install and to maintain. A study conducted by the Carpet & Rug Institute shows that carpet doesn’t cost as much as hard surfaces in terms of long term maintenance. The study reported that the cleaning products for hard surfaces were 7 times costlier and it required 2.5 times more time for cleaning as compared to carpets. Hardwood is usually costlier, but some exotic Carpets Calgary cost more on a per square foot basis.

3. Carpets Improve Air Quality

As compared to hard surfaces, carpet fibers can trap dust and dirt. This prevents the particulate matter from being suspended into the air and from being inhaled. Regular vacuuming and cleaning can help remove the particles. Thus, you could improve the air quality by reducing the dirt and dust flying in your Calgary home.

4. Carpets are Warmer

Compared to hard surfaces, including hardwood, carpets are warmer. You can walk bare feet on them even during winters.

5. Better Acoustic Properties

Carpeted homes in Calgary are quieter than their hard-floored counterparts. Carpet can muffle sound and make your home a more silent place. Hard surfaces on the other hand can create echoing effects and sound could travel throughout the building.

6. Preventing Furniture from Drifting

It is not possible to slide your furniture on the Carpets Calgary. But this also means that your furniture will always remain in its place. You will usually not be moving your furniture around too often. But on hard surfaces, they could drift around as everyone in the family moves around them. Carpets can hold your furniture and other items in place.

Given these benefits of installing carpets in your Calgary home, it doesn’t mean that you can replace hardwood or other floorings with these softer alternatives. Carpets are considered ideal for bedrooms. They are especially more suitable for upper level rooms because hardwood floors in such rooms could create too much sound for lower level rooms. Carpet floors are also good for your entertainment room, as they can maintain sound quality. So if you choose carpet for its qualities, it makes more sense to study how and where to install them in your Calgary home.
