living room with carpet tiling

When you decide to give your home a makeover it can take time to decide what you exactly want done in each room. Deciding which type of flooring you want can also be a big decision. For example, if you decide to choose carpets for your home, it’s important to know the benefits of this type of flooring before you buy it.

Much as we all love the beauty of wood, the practicality of tiles and the feel of smooth poured concrete beneath our feet, there are times when only carpet will do. Carpet still has the edge when it comes to comfort and luxury.  It’s no surprise that it’s still the flooring of choice for the

1) Sound Insulation

For the wellbeing of people, noise pollution can be a problem in the home. Through sound absorption, the noise impact is virtually eliminated via the introduction of a fitted carpet. With carpets, impact noise is reduced by around 30db which is another great reason to purchase this flooring type.

If you live in a flat or have multiple levels in your home, the noise reduction benefit can be especially beneficial here.

2) Saving Energy

Another benefit of a fitted carpet is the amount of warmth that it retains in a room, which in turn, saves on energy costs. Carpets create a heat barrier as they have a low heat conduction that are natural thermal insulators. A substantial amount of heat will be retained in the room with carpet.

With the combination of noise reduction and the comfort underfoot that comes with it, the reduction of using the heater in the colder months is reduced.

There are two ways in which carpets help the safety aspect in a home. A reduced spillage, especially when wet and stress is reduced on joints as it provides amazing orthopaedic properties as carpets act as a cushion effect.

The elderly and infants benefit greatly from carpets as they have a non-slip aspect and in the case of a fall, it reduces the chances of injury.

4) Health benefits

Carpets are conducive to a healthy living environment as they have amazing dust-trapping properties. Dust is held in pile fibres of the carpet once it has settled so it’s then just a simple job of vacuuming.

The dust content of the indoor air is kept to a minimum as it’s not disturbed by incoming air draughts. Dust particles carry allergens, germs and other air containments so therefore carpets play another key role for the family members in the house.
