Wall-to-wall carpeting has been a prevalent flooring solution since the early 1900’s, and even though it has been overshadowed as of late by several other flooring options such as hardwood, vinyl and laminate it still remains a popular choice for many households.

If you are thinking about updating your floors, carpeting is warm, soft and a suitable option for almost any room. There are many reasons to choose carpeting for your floors, below we highlight several key reasons.

Unique Style

There are so many style and colour options when it comes to carpeting that you can easily change the theme and mood of any space in your home by simply installing wall-to-wall carpeting. The neutral tones that were popular decades ago have been replaced with vibrant blues, greens, yellows and reds that help tie a room together. You can even choose from varied textures that help uplift the style of any room, from shaggy to silky smooth, you are sure to find a carpeting option that meets your design and style needs.


Stepping barefoot on warm, cushiony carpet first thing in the morning, beats stepping on cold hardwood or vinyl any day. It’s no wonder that the most popular room for carpeting in a home is still the bedroom. Carpeting offers a soft surface that you, your family and your pets wouldn’t mind sitting or lying on. Unlike many hard surfaces that are not flexible underfoot, carpet provides cushioning as you walk across it, making it easier on your back and joints.


Walking around on a warm carpet on a frosty winter morning helps you maintain a warm and comfortable body temperature. Carpet also offers higher insulation for your home, regardless of its material type. Along with the under pad, carpeting helps to keep your home warm and comfortable throughout the winter month, and can help reduce your monthly energy bills as you won’t need to rely so much on your heating system to stay comfortable.

Noise Reduction

If you have a busy household, chances are you desire some quieter spaces. Carpeting may be your solution as it helps insulate against noise by absorbing sound. Hard surfaces on the other hand allow for noise to bounce off their surface, creating an echo and accentuating the sounds. This is especially handy in multi-story homes where footsteps and conversations can be heard in the rooms below the upper floors.


Carpets can actually enhance your home’s safety as it is a non-slippery surface and it provides a softer landing area in the event of a fall. Carpeting is a great flooring for homes with infants and younger children as well as homes with elderly inhabitants.

Carpeting is soft, comfortable, warm, safe and can be found in a wide range of styles, designs and colours making it an ideal flooring solution for almost every room in your home. We say almost, because you should avoid using carpeting in any room where there is a high likelihood of liquids spilling on the floor, such as the kitchen or bathrooms.
