There are pros and cons to just about everything in life, and the choices you make for your home are no exception. In each case, what you have to decide is how important those pros and cons are to you. Which weigh most?

Take, for instance, carpet flooring. An obvious detractor to carpet is the reality that carpeting doesn’t last as long as, say, solid hardwood flooring. However, the pros to carpet flooring are many, and depending on your lifestyle and needs, carpet might be perfect for your home.

Let’s take a look at the top three benefits of carpet. You can decide for yourself what’s most important to you.

  1. Noise

    Home theater systems and big screen televisions are our way of life these days. And with smart phones and tablets and all their notifications, plus the smart speakers and all their music and the rest, a quiet flooring surface acts a sound barrier for feet as well as the rest of the noises that bounce around your home.

  2. Soft and warm

    Naturally, carpet is cushy—sometimes even springy—under your feet. It’s positively divine to lie on, and is popular in rooms where you spend most of your time. As for those Midwest winters? Carpet flooring helps keep your whole house comfortable and warm as well.

  3. Huge selection of colors and patterns

    A big factor in choosing any flooring is what it looks like. And with carpet flooring, you have seemingly limitless options of colors, patterns and textures to enhance your home’s aesthetic, whatever look you’re into.
