When most people think of indoor carpeting, they think of shag carpeting from the 1970s, indoor mini-golf, and office buildings. However, residential carpeting is a great renovation to add to your home this winter season. Canadian winters can be quite cold and carpeting will be very useful, from retaining the warmth of your home, to decreasing your heating bills. Here are four reasons why you should order residential carpeting this holiday season.
Choose From Many Different Styles of Residential Carpeting
Most people think all residential carpeting is the same. They are not. There are many different choices of materials and textures one can choose from, for their unique carpeting needs. Cadillac Carpet & Flooring offers wool, plush, and berber carpeting. You can even add friezes, different textures and loops. There are so many different possibilities!
If you want a truly unique design for your home, try carpet tiles! They are a simple way for you and your spouse to spruce up a room and determine the carpeting patterns yourself. Carpet tiles come in a variety of textures and patterns to ensure you achieve your interior decorating needs.
They are also much easier to apply and remove than traditional residential carpeting, and easier to maintain! If one tile is damaged, you simply remove that tile and replace it, rather than having to recut your carpet, as it is traditionally done.
Avoid Slippers and Go Barefoot
Flat shoes like slippers have many problems inherent in their design. They can aggravate existing foot problems, like ingrown toenails, and can change the shape of your foot, leading to problems later in life. While flat shoes are generally healthy as long as they are not worn all the time and are not too tight, the winter cold will ensure most people wear their slippers significantly this winter season.
You may even wear them for long periods of time around the house without noticing. While comfortable slippers may pose little danger to some, it may be better to walk around your house barefoot, on warm, lush carpeting instead. This winter season, ditch the slippers for residential carpeting or carpet tiles (if you, for instance, only want a section of a room carpeted), and you will feel so much better!
Carpets Retain Warmth
Carpets do not just feel nice under your bare feet, they also help reduce your heating bills and keep your house warm. The many millions of fibres that constitute both commercial and residential carpeting absorb and retain heat. This is great during the cold winter months when the family starts wearing more layers and turns up the thermostat.
Instead of waking up to a cold tile or hardwood floor every morning, enjoy the warmth of your new residential carpeting, as well as a decreased heating bill overall. It is literally a gift the whole family can enjoy!
Residential Carpeting Spruces up the Place
You may not be thinking of renovating or selling your home now, but preparing in advance will make the whole process easier when it is time. In addition to taking advantage of all the benefits carpeting offers during the wintertime, why not prepare to sell early, with a new, lavish residential carpet?
Renovating now will ease the demanding undertaking of putting your home up for sale in the future, and will be one more thing you do not have to worry about. For peace of mind, renovate in advance with residential carpeting. You will be glad you did this in advance.
