Deciding on what kind of flooring you want in your home or business can be a major decision, and is not one to be taken lightly whether you are moving into old building or constructing one of your own. The flooring that you decide on could greatly determine the look and feel of your space, playing a major role in whether a room feels dark and dreary or bright and vibrant. For business owners, this could mean the difference between a sale and a nice visit from someone who was almost a paying customer.
Considering the impact that something as seemingly insignificant as your choice of flooring can have in your space, we've collected a few brief reasons why you should avoid wood flooring in favor of carpet:
You are willing to sacrifice hygiene for five minutes' extra cleaning
Stains are something you find add character to a room
Aesthetics aren't really your thing
We hope you get our point. Wood flooring is simply a better option for your home and your business! Let us explain why.
The Reality of Carpeting
To begin with, while you may notice that you're cleaning more dust and dirt off of your new wood flooring than you ever used to pick up from your old carpet with your vacuum, we encourage you to think that concern over again. The fibers of your carpet used to hide that dust and dirt away from the reach of your handy vacuum. This is why carpet cleaners are often necessary to remove months of buildup. Good thing you've decided that a little extra sweeping is worth the effort. Wood flooring is a healthier option because it doesn't provide space for molds and mildews to grow as they wait for that oh-so-needed carpet cleaner.
Secondly, that stain that you've become fond of over the years? We hate to break it to you, but you're likely the only one that finds it appealing. For the rest of us, a wooden floor that is easier to clean is the better option for ensuring stains don't form in the first place.
Finally, whether you are entertaining guests, working to become more inviting to customers, enjoying a book by the fireplace, or driving home a major sale, wood flooring can encourage different moods and is generally a warmer and more inviting option than carpet.
