Is Carpet Flooring the Better Choice for Bedrooms?
Carpet sometimes gets a bad rap, but the truth is that it’s still one of the most popular flooring choices of homeowners, especially in bedrooms. Hardwood flooring is appealing, but when it comes to bedrooms, is carpet flooring the better choice? Let’s take a closer look at some reasons why homeowners choose carpet for their bedrooms.
Peace and Quiet
Carpet flooring in a bedroom means no squeaking floors or heavy footsteps in the middle of the night. Have pets? Your cat or dog jumping off your bed at 2 in the morning won’t wake you up if they’re jumping onto a carpeted floor. Carpet also absorbs sound while hard surfaces like hardwood or tile reflect it, so this means voices and music are more muffled in a carpeting room.
Cozy and Warm
Carpet flooring is warm and soft to the touch on bare feet, as opposed to cold hardwood or tile. A carpeted room is much gentler on the feet, especially in the middle of the night. You’ll also be providing some extra cushion for the tiny little feet in your life.
If you have children or even an elderly relative living you, carpet flooring can be much safer than hardwood or tile. Slips and falls are much more likely to happen on a smooth hard surface, especially in the middle of the night. Carpet also makes for a soft cushiony surface, perfect for little ones learning to crawl or walk.
Easy to Breathe
Believe or not, carpet reduces the number of airborne allergens in the air compared to hardwood. The particles become trapped in the carpet fibers until they are vacuumed up. This means that carpet flooring is safer for people with breathing issues like asthma, or even newborn babies.
Carpet flooring comes in an endless amount of different colors and styles. There are also several different options when it comes to length and fiber materials. It’s easy to find a carpet style that works in any bedroom.
Of course, hardwood and tile flooring have their own advantages, but for all the above reasons, carpet still is the top choice for bedrooms.
