Pros of Carpet:

Provides more warmth

Carpet acts and insulation and keeps your home warmer. This is especially good in winter months because it requires you to spend less money on heat. 

Comfortable and soft

The first step on cold tile, or even hardwood, is chilly! With carpet, you have a comfortable, cozy place to walk. If you have little ones in your house carpet is especially helpful. It gives them a comfortable place to crawl and play. If they fall, as kids often do, they will have a soft place to break their landing. 

Affordable option

Carpet can often be a more affordable option compared to other types of flooring.

Dresses up the room

Adding carpet to a room changes the style and feel. It can take a room from boring to beautiful.
