In the world of flooring, carpeting is starting to come across as a little old fashioned. Now, before we go any further, remember that in Nashville and the Middle Tennessee area, old fashioned just needs to find a bit of a modern spin before it is all good again; nothing old fashioned is inherently bad. However, carpeting does tend to get lost in the shuffle a little bit. It doesn’t have the years of history or legacy that something like nice, reclaimed oak hardwood flooring saved from an ancient barn might have. It is also missing out on a lot of the features that make something like luxury vinyl plank flooring appealing, such as the all natural components and ease with which it is installed. But the professionals here at Ozburn-Hessey remember carpeting and keep it in our hearts always, which is why we are focusing on the good things about carpeting, and the things it can offer that no other flooring material can.
Luxury at Your Feet
The main thing that carpeting – residential carpeting in particular – offers that cannot be matched by other materials is the level of comfort and luxury. No matter how many advancements, no matter how many foam mats or cork subflooring are used, it will never beat the feel of a plush, cloud-esque pillow topped carpet under your foot. It simply is the best for your feet, both in how it feels and from a medical standpoint, since most carpeting does a fine job of spreading out the pressure. This means your feet and ankles are not going to take the full force of each step you take, which will greatly improve the health of your back. Think about how often you are up and about walking. Now imagine how much better this will feel if you have carpeting covering even just one room or hallway that is not currently covered.
Out With the Old Arguments, in With Carpeting You Will Love
It also helps that many of the old complaints against carperting no longer apply. Unless you go with the most expensive product, carpeting is pretty affordable these days. It is available in a far wider range of colors and styles, so unless you want to go with something classic, like gold, beige or white, you don’t have to. A lot of the visual effects that are achieved through color matching and contrasting with hardwood flooring are expanded on through the wider variety available. For those who like linoleum and vinyl flooring, modular carpeting takes everything lovely about them and applies it to carpeting in one easy-to-replace-on-the-fly package.
Carpeting still has a place in the modern world, and still has a place in your life.
