Style and Design
Depending on the look you want to achieve, carpet can be a neutral foundation or a focal point with vibrant colors, bold patterns, and interesting textures. Your ultimate choice reflects how you want to personalize your living space. With thousands of carpet styles and colors to choose from, the possibilities are endless!
Carpet Improves Indoor Air Quality
New carpet is one of the lowest volatile organic compound (VOC)-emitting flooring choice available. Different from hard floors, carpet acts as a passive air filter, trapping dust, pollen, and particles and, therefore, removing them from the breathing zone. Studies have shown that people with asthma and allergy problems have seen symptoms improve with carpet.
Carpet provides safety protection for the whole family, including toddlers, older individuals, and pets. Carpet cushions our footsteps, reduces the likelihood of slips and falls, and minimizes injuries when falls do occur.
Big screen TVs, speaker phones, computers, and sound systems make our homes noisy places. Carpet helps to absorb these sounds, making it easier to work, learn, and sleep. Adding a cushion pad beneath your carpet reduces noise even further. Carpet also works as a sound barrier between floors by helping to block sound transmission to rooms below. Carpet on stairs dampens the sound of foot traffic.
The carpet industry is committed to minimizing carpet’s impact on the environment. When carpet reaches the end of its long life, it is reused to make new carpet or is recycled into a variety of products including roofing shingles, railroad ties, and automotive parts. Today’s carpets are environmentally friendly, engineered to resist staining and fading, and withstand even heavy foot traffic.
