Why you should choose carpet for your family home


When it comes to choosing the right flooring for your home, there are many options available out there, from real wood to laminate and vinyl. While all these possibilities have several benefits, carpet is the clear choice for a safe and comfortable family home. Read on to discover why.  

Increase your family’s safety

The most important part of any family home is ensuring the safety of everyone inside. With children (and some adults!) sliding for fun on shiny wooden floors or running to dinner along a smooth vinyl hallway, accidents can easily happen. Carpets, however, have a uniquely textured surface that minimises the chance of slips and trips and, should someone happen to fall, it’s soft surface can help cushion their landing.  

Thick pile carpets have excellent insulation properties 

As carpets are made from thick materials with fibres that trap heat, they make excellent insulators for your home. Indeed, the thermal resistance of carpet can be as much as 10 times higher than that of other hard flooring materials like wood or vinyl. This not only ensures your family stay cosy and warm but can also help you save money on your energy bills! 

Carpets help prevent unwanted noise

With the pitter patter of running feet or the clatter of high heels in the hallway, noise can quickly become an issue in a busy family home. Help reduce the amount of unwanted sound by choosing carpet for your flooring. With its soft fibrous surface, it helps to absorb and muffle loud footsteps and voices. 

Choose from a variety of styles

From intricate patterns and vibrant colours to different textures and underlay options, carpet offers unparalleled variety when it comes to style. Available in almost every colour of the rainbow, in numerous piles, textures and finishes, carpet can be tailored to fit in with the style of your home perfectly.
