Area rugs have many advantages. They can cover stains or worn out sections in old wall-to-wall carpet as well as add warmth and an extra layer of insulation. An area rug can also add pattern and colour to a room, as this type of carpet flooring doesn't have to be in a neutral colour to provide good looks or value. Area rugs can move from home to home and room to room. For instance, living room area rugs that begin to show a little wear can move to a family room or even outside on a covered porch to help create an outdoor living space.
Wall-to-wall carpet flooring helps soundproof and insulate entire rooms — especially if the under-padding is thick and the carpet fiber is dense. It also provides a soft surface for toddlers or elderly people who are prone to falls. Carpeting staircases in the home makes them safer for all family members. Wall-to-wall carpeting can also be more economical than other flooring choices and can make a room look warm, inviting and finished. Wall-to-wall carpet is also warm on the feet, which is an advantage for cooler climates.
Most carpet flooring is easy to maintain, as many types need only a weekly vacuuming and a steam cleaning once or twice a year. Berber carpeting, which is tightly woven, is especially durable and usually requires very little maintenance. For people with foot or joint problems, thick padding underneath carpet flooring can create a comfortable surface for standing and walking.
