Of course, the first question when choosing a carpet is should you choose carpet in the first place. The answer in most cases is a resounding YES!
Carpet is a more desirable and practical alternative to hard floor coverings, and has better aesthetics. It is available in a wide variety of textures, colours and designs. It is non-reflective.
Carpet is one of the most effective acoustical building materials, preventing noise generation at floor level without decreasing the quality of projected sound such as speech, music etc.
Carpet is more comfortable to walk on, cushioning footfalls and reducing fatigue.
Carpet increases thermal comfort and is more economical because of lower maintenance costs and savings on fuel costs and sound insulation materials.
