Have you ever noticed that after a period of time spent standing or walking on ceramic tiles or concrete, your body is sore and achy? Hard surfaces are just that: hard. They offer no flexibility underfoot, so they lack the ability to act as shock absorbers for your footsteps. In addition to feeling nice to walk, sit and lay on, carpet provides shock absorption thanks to its flexibility and cushioning. This effect is increased dramatically if there is foam underlay beneath the carpet. So, not only is carpet more comfortable to the touch, but it is also easier on the body when standing or walking on it over a long period of time. Safety is also a consolation as carpet softens slips and falls, making it a great option for homes with small children or elderly.
Sound carries much further when there is no carpet in the space. You’ve probably, at some point, been in a room that is bare of carpet and noticed that sound tended to bounce off the walls and create an echo in the room. This is because hard surfaces can’t absorb sound the way that soft surfaces – such as carpet – can. Carpet contributes to a much quieter space. Most companies have open office settings with a large number of people dealing and interacting with each other making Carpet an excellent noise reducer. Ringing phones and frequent movement of staff within the office environment raises the noise that hinders the efficiency of the staff and becomes an obstacle to proper communication. Carpet offers an excellent solution in tackling the loud sounds in the office and helps to increase productivity.
Carpeting adds to the décor by using color, patterns, and pile heights. The carpeting can create the image you want in your home or business. This feeling of making the right choice by the client cannot be over stated and taken for granted. When entering a corporate environment, the first general appearance is office décor, office professionalism and office appearance. What better way to provide the most professional image than beautiful designed carpet floor covering. With the hundreds of patterns, cuts, and colors, there are literally thousands of possibilities to "fulfill" the style you wish for your space.
Carpet usually costs less over time than hard surface flooring to purchase, clean, and maintain. Even with professional installation, carpet tends to cost much less than other types of flooring options.
With the wide range of carpet available, there is a solution for practically every budget and décor need, typically costing significantly less than other types of flooring like tile, marble or hardwood.
