7 Reasons Why You Should Invest in Carpets
Carpets have long been a favourite flooring option for hotels, executive offices, and guesthouses. The reasons for investing in carpets for your home, office or hotel are still as relevant today as ever.
Carpets, especially the luxury types available today, complement your interior furnishings. With wall-to-wall carpets, you immediately add a touch of elegance to the room.
Wide Variety of Styles
With hundreds of styles, textures, and colours to choose from, you can create unique interior spaces.
Have you ever walked on a tile or hardwood floor, especially with high heels? The noise created by shoes and pets walking on tile floors can be a bit annoying, especially if you live below someone who loves their high heels. With carpets, the sound of footsteps is dampened, creating a more harmonious indoor living or working space.
Prevent Acoustic Problems
People spend a lot of time in the living room or the lounge, where sound insulation is important. Without proper sound insulation, you may get a hollow sound from the entertainment system and even when people just talk, you may still hear an echo. Elegant luxury carpets dampen any such sound feedback.
Optimise Temperature Control
South Africa is a country of weather extremes. It can be exceptionally hot in the summer months and very cold in winter. With most homes not having double-glazed windows, managing indoor temperatures often entails usage of heaters and air-conditioning.
With carpets, the indoor temperature stays more constant and you do not have the problem of a room feeling too cold or too hot. In addition, you save on energy costs.
Ever tried playing a board game on a tile floor? However, sit down with your friends on a soft carpet in front of a cosy fireplace and sip a glass of wine while playing a board game, and it is a whole new feeling. Carpets provide soft and comfortable surfaces, with a warm ambience at the same time. Nothing adds such warmth and comfort to a bedroom as wall-to-wall carpeting.
Improve Safety in the House
Small children, pets, and senior citizens are all vulnerable when it comes to slip-and-fall injuries. Children love to run around and even when warned not to do so in the house, accidents are bound to happen. Animals tend to slip on tiles and older people are always at risk of falling.
Carpets provide a far softer landing in such instances and thus reduce the likelihood of serious head or hip injuries associated with falling in the house. Slip-and-fall accidents are highly probable on tiles or stone floors, especially if there are slippery substances on the floor such as oil or water. Improve the safety profile of your home by investing in carpeting throughout the living room, bedrooms, hall, dining room, and lounge.
