The 5 Best Things About Carpet Flooring


While we offer a comprehensive range of flooring services – from wooden to vinyl to luxury – carpets are the classic when it comes to family homes, as well as for many offices and educational buildings. But why is this? There are many reasons as to why carpets hold are the chosen flooring in the homes and commercial buildings of people all over the world.

Comfortable and colourful

Hardwood floors and laminate flooring are great for a grand aesthetic. However, by their nature they’re not as comfortable to walk on as carpet. With carpets you can use dyes and different material colours to create artistic patterns and shapes, or pick the colour to perfectly match with the rest of the room.

Long Lasting

Heavy furniture can cause damage and markings on hardwood floors, either through being in the same place for a long time, or through being moved and scraping the surface. Furthermore, the fact that the floor surface is exposed 24/7 means that it’s subject to more wear and tear.

With a carpet, even if indented under heavy furniture, the underlying floor is undamaged. The material covering gives the floor protection from scuffs and scratches from general use, while also making your floor easier to clean – using hoovers and carpet detergents can have your floor clean in no time.

Safe for Children and Pets

Carpets provide that extra bit of padding that might be needed if you have little ones running around in your house, while also having far more grip than traditional wooden flooring – meaning any slips or trips should be minimised. It’s great for noise control too – hard flooring produces a lot more sound, while carpets do a great job of dampening sound – great if you’re the one up early.
