Wall-to-wall carpeting often gets a bad reputation. Yet, carpet is such a versatile type of flooring. Did you know that carpeting actually accounts for more than half of all flooring purchases every year? Carpet offers many advantages that other types of flooring do not. Here, we’ll show you some of the many advantages of a home with wall-to-wall carpet. Warmth Carpet is great in rooms like the bedroom, the family room and other rooms where you’d like to have something cozy under your feet while you’re typically walking barefoot. It’s much nicer to walk on a soft carpet than a cold floor with bare feet. Carpeting also makes a room appear more homey when you first walk into it, so it’s aesthetically pleasing. Installation and soundproofing Carpeting adds an extra layer of insulation between the floorboards of your home. Carpet will build a sound barrier between the upstairs and downstairs, for example. Carpet reduces noise from foot traffic in your home as well as blocks the transmission of sound. This creates a soundproofing of sorts between rooms with carpet and those rooms without it. Safety Carpet is much more slip resistant than hardwood or tile floors. If you have children, they’re at risk of taking falls. Wouldn’t it be better for them to fall on a soft carpet rather then a hard, cold floor? We think yes! Carpeting in playrooms and bedrooms is a great way to add a built-in safety feature to your home. Flexibility in decor Since carpet comes in so many different styles and colors, it’s certain that you can find a carpet that is perfect for any room. The possibilities are endless! The color and style of your carpet can be the foundation of the decorating scheme for a room. Low cost Carpet is low in cost compared to other tapes of flooring. It can be professionally installed at a price that won’t break the bank. Since the cost per square foot is lower, you can cover a bigger portion of your home with carpet on a tight budget. The allergy factor While carpeting is thought of to be a bad thing for allergies, some studies have shown that carpeting can actually help keep the air in your home cleaner. This is because it traps allergens. Of course, you must make sure your carpet is properly cleaned and maintained. Carpets are easy to maintain and care for. There are many proven carpet cleaning and stain removal methods available. Hide floor damage If a floor in your home is damaged, it may be more cost-effective to install a carpet rather than installing a completely new floor. It’s safe to cover a damaged floor with carpeting. Installing a wall-to-wall carpet in a room with an old floor can make the room appear like new.

When you think of making improvements to your home, you probably often turn to the inside of your home to bring the value of your home up. The outside of your house provides the same type of opportunities and adds value at the same time. People not only like to live in the indoors of their homes, but the outdoors as well. Maximizing the outdoor space allows for entertainment opportunities and increased living space without maximum costs.


Spruce Up Your Garden And Landscapes


The landscape of your home is a revolving battle. You’ll need to continually maintain these areas of the home. Choose your plants based on the climate you live in. Keep the grass looking green, or plant a drought-tolerant yard. Adding trees for shade, shrubbery for beauty, and other types of plants not only helps increase the curb appeal of your home, but plants and trees can lower energy bills and keep your home cool at the same time.      



Build An Outdoor Space


Building something like a deck or a patio to your home can really be effective at adding living space and value to your home. Whether you decide to go all out and attach a deck to your home for you to step out on, or do things a little more simply and pave a patio, you’ll find a return on your investment. Most homeowners look for a nice outdoor space to hang out on, so this improvement can make a big difference. 


Curb Appeal Matters


The curb appeal of your home is what it looks like when people pull up tot he front of the house. Having a better looking home from the outside can increase the value of your home and the future appeal it has to buyers. Your home will be more inviting by doing improvements like repaving the driveway or adding a stone wall. Whatever you think the front of your home needs to make it more inviting should be done not only if you’re planning on selling your home, but for your own enjoyment as well. 


Add Other Touches


There are certain luxuries in a yard that can make a big difference. Add a small waterfall or a fountain to add a lot to a yard. Along with your deck or patio area, you should also consider adding a fire pit or an outdoor fireplace. These items attract people for their immense enjoyment. The design doesn’t even need to be elaborate. These can be some of the biggest, yet most inexpensive improvements that you can make to your yard. 


Remember that no matter how you want to spruce up your yard, it’s all about enjoyment and the ability to make use your yard. Add the personal touches that you know will make your yard special and purposeful.
