Flooring is an important aspect of any home’s overall composition. Different types of flooring provide different types of benefits. For example, carpet can help dampen reverberation, which improves your home’s acoustics. And laminate or hardwood flooring can improve and strengthen your home’s property value.
With this in mind, we here at Deerfoot Carpet want to give you an overview of some of the carpet and flooring services in Calgary so that you’re aware of the best products to outfit your home with.
Carpet flooring has long been associated with warmth and comfort. And it’s no wonder. Beyond the style and lavished appearance that carpet flooring can provide, it has the added benefit of being a practical method for insulation. This is especially useful during the cold winter months we experience here in southern Alberta.
The unfriendly experience of waking up, then walking on a glacial hardwood floor in the middle of January can send chills up the spine of even the heartiest of us! So the warmth factor connected to carpet flooring is a big plus.
And while it does require a little more maintenance than its hardwood counterpart, carpet flooring is still a very good alternative as it is often the more cost-effective option of the two. So if you’re on a strict budget, then carpet flooring may be the most appropriate choice.
Many homeowners swear by hardwood flooring, and when you look into the reasons why, it becomes an understandable and even obvious declaration. Hardwood flooring (particularly laminate, hickory, oak, engineered hardwood, etc) is a stylish addition to any home that can transform a space to a more modern and contemporary look and feel.
Additionally, hardwood flooring is durable, easy to maintain and clean, and can even increase your home’s resale value – this is due to its longevity, stylish appearance, as well as the fact that it’s better for air quality.
Due to solid hardwood flooring having no fibres or grout lines that latch onto dust and allergens, it creates a healthier home environment for those you love. This is quite beneficial for people who suffer from any type of condition that makes them sensitive to air quality (asthma, emphysema, etc).
Additional benefits of hardwood flooring include:
- Environmentally friendly
- Long term investment
- Easy installation
- Good for Children
- Ageless quality
Your decision to go with carpet or hardwood flooring will be based on your needs, wants, preference, and budget. Once you factor in all of those key details and match them up to the benefits that each flooring option provides, your choice will become obvious.
