Four Reasons Why We Love Carpet

Beaulieu Cornerstone Collection



Looking to update your floors? Why not consider carpet? It’s available in a beautiful range of colors, textures, and environmentally friendly fibers, and adds instant personality to any room. Carpet’s easy to clean surface is family and pet friendly, and is more affordable than you might think. Whether calm neutrals or bold, bright shades, carpeting is a great flooring choice.


Here are four reasons why we’re fans of great carpet:


Noise Reduction


Carpeting absorbs sounds, taking the rough edges off those everyday household noises. People, television, electronic devices, appliances, and a host of other items resonate throughout our homes – carpeting helps soften their impact on our ears, making our home a more restful place.  Carpet also creates a barrier between floors above and below, as well as quiets foot traffic on the stairs. We all appreciate a little peace and quiet now and then, don’t we?




Carpet is easy on our feet, offering support while cushioning our steps.  It’s also a warm and inviting area on which to sit, play, gather with loved ones, or grab a reprieve after a long day. Carpeting offers insulation, making your home warm in winter and cool in summer, which translates into budget friendly savings. We love comfort and saving money!


Health and Safety Features


Carpet is a healthier option than you might think. According to the Carpet and Rug Institute, “New carpet is the lowest VOC-emitting flooring choice available. It actually acts as a passive air filter, trapping dust, pollen and other particles and removing them from the breathing zone. Studies have shown that people with asthma and allergy problems have seen symptoms improve with carpet.”


Since a carpet’s surface provides natural traction, it’s more “tumble friendly”. Should anyone take a spill, from the little ones to the elderly, its non-slip properties offer a resilient surface, lowering risk of injury. Carpeting’s cushioned surface is also said to be easier on the joints, which is a great benefit whether young, old, or in between. We think these are all very good things.


Design Friendly


With an almost endless selection of colors and styles, carpeting softens the look of a room, adding luxurious depth and character. The array of hues and textures available can make a subtle statement, complementing furniture and other features like windows or a fireplace. Or it can create a focal point, becoming a striking backdrop for existing décor. So of course, design friendly choices like these make us happy.


Carpet offers a myriad of beautiful design options that can reflect your style, making a personal statement for all to see. It’s a wise and lasting choice for one of your biggest and most important  investments – your home.
