Is Carpet Still a Popular Flooring Choice?

The answer to that question is a rounding yes. Despite the hype surrounding hardwood
flooring, carpeting is making a definite comeback after falling out of favor in the 1970s due to
the shag carpeting craze. Today’s carpeting offers a much larger selection of colors, textures,
patterns and materials than in years past. An increasing number of interior designers are
incorporating carpeting into their exclusive designs.
Carpeting provides a warm, welcoming and soft surface. It enables people to demonstrate their
unique sense of style and is appropriate for any décor. Carpeting is the flooring canvas upon
which individuals are demonstrating their creativity and sense of style. Individuals are choosing
to decorate with patterned carpeting and accessorize with neutral colored furniture and other
touches rather than the other way around.
New technology has even created carpets that are ideal for pet owners. They have a special
backing that doesn’t allow pet accidents to penetrate down to the padding or under flooring.
While developed for pet owners, its equally beneficial for those with small children who are
prone to spilling things and its stain resistant.
Carpeting manufacturers have also responded to customer desires for carpeting with
sustainability that are less harmful to the environment. Individuals can find carpeting crafted of
natural materials from wood to sisal. However, customers still have access to carpeting of
synthetic materials.
Another reason that carpeting is returning to popularity is its warmth. In an effort to save
money and natural resources, more homes are being maintained at lower temperatures.
Carpeting provides a warm and comfortable surface for children to play upon, pets to rest on,
and there’s no reason to suffer with cold feet when getting out of bed in the morning.
Today, carpeting is a stylish and essential design tool. The floor covering is available in
traditional rolls, along with tiles that enable the creation of unique looks.
