Advantages of carpet


Why choose carpet?

Carpet is a luxurious floor covering. There is always a suitable carpet for every room in your home or office. From a luxury carpet for your living room to a soft bedroom carpet, a practical carpet for the hallway and stairs or home office.

There are many advantages to choosing a carpet …


Carpet absorbs the sound

Carpet is great for absorbing sounds. On stairs, in the living room or an office. A carpet doesn't reflect sounds, it absorbs them thus minimizing the overall noise levels. Height and density of the carpet will also influence the effect of sound insulation.

A carpet will improve the whole room acoustics. Environmental noises are minimized by rooms that have been fitted with a nice deep pile carpet.


Carpet improves the indoor climate

Carpet improves the indoor climate as it retains airborne dust particles. The carpet traps the particles and keeps them trapped in the fibres until the next time you get the vacuum cleaner out. Therefore, dust allergies should not form an obstruction to choose carpet.

Carpet also offers good insulation, allowing energy savings of approximately 4-5 per cent and up to 10 per cent in cold winters. Carpet is also suitable for houses with underfloor heating. When purchasing carpet, pay attention to the thermal resistance in the technical specifications and the presence of the PRO-DIS symbol underfloor heating to find a suitable carpet.


Carpet is comfortable and luxurious

Carpet is a textile flooring, providing you with a feeling of complete luxury and comfort.

For added comfort and an increased life span, use a good quality underlay. Underlay maximises all positive effects of carpet such as sound and energy insulation and the feeling of comfort and luxury.


Carpet is safe and warm

On a rug in front of the fireplace, going barefoot in your home or playing a board game on the floor: with carpet installed, all such activities are comfortable and nice to do. Textile flooring is gentle on your joints and feet.

Carpet is also non-slippery. The risk of slipping on a carpet is far lower than with smooth hard flooring. And if one should fall, the chances of injuries are far smaller as carpet is soft resilient and soft.


Carpet is versatile

Carpet is the most versatile flooring; the possibilities are truly endless! Carpet is available in a wide spectrum of colours, designs and structures. Combine patterns, colours and designs to create a unique floor. Carpet is also quite easy to clean and maintain.
