Choices for flooring in our homes can seem almost endless! Do we go with tiles? Hardwood? Composite? These are all great options, but have you considered carpet? We’re here to tell you about the pros and cons of carpet for your home!
First, let’s talk about the good. Carpeting is less expensive than most other flooring options, meaning that you can put money towards other aspects of your home. Additionally, it’s also quieter than options like hardwood or tile flooring meaning that you have a quieter home.
Carpeting also comes in many different styles, designs, and patterns meaning that it can match the tone of the room you install it in. For example, if you want a warm and cozy feeling family room, there’s a carpet for that.
If time is of the essence for your new flooring, carpet easier, faster, and less expensive to install than other options. If a quick and easy option is what you’re looking for, carpet is it.
On the other side of the coin, we have the cons. While it is less expensive to install, carpeting does wear down more noticeably than other options. High traffic areas will become noticeable, and even the most durable of carpet is susceptible to this.
Unlike a hardwood floor that you can mop wash when it gets dirty, the carpet needs to be deep cleaned regularly with a carpet cleaner. Occasionally it should be professionally cleaned and vacuumed often. And even if it’s well-maintained, it still needs to be replaced occasionally.
So there you have it, some pros and cons to carpeting for your home. Do you have any questions about renovations to your home or office? We’d love to hear from you!
