wall-to-wall carpet burnsvilleAt Floor Coverings International, we’re experts in all types of flooring, from hardwood to tile to carpeting. As we’ve kept up with the trends, though, we’ve noticed a move away from wall-to-wall carpeting and towards hard surface flooring. While both options have a host of benefits, we want to assure our Burnsville families that carpet still has quite a bit to offer! This month, our team is bringing you our top four reasons to love wall-to-wall carpeting. Read on to learn what makes this Burnsville home staple a classic!

1). Warmth. Let’s talk about the obvious first. Nothing says warmth and coziness quite like carpeting. Whether you opt for carpeting in a bedroom to cozy up our cold winter winter nights or prefer to use it in the family room to keep the whole crew snuggly, carpet is sure to get the job done.

2). Softness. Softness and warmth seem to go hand and hand, but in a world where hard surface flooring is all the rage, there’s something to be said for a softer landing place. Carpet makes a great surface for babies to take their first steps and provides a good cushion for young children to play on the floor. It’s no wonder why carpet has been an enduring option for living and family rooms for decades.

3). Versatility. Carpet comes in a huge variety of options, from low-pile styles that are easy to clean and incredibly durable to shag carpets that infuse a feeling of luxury into a space. At Floor Coverings International Dakota County, we carry thousands of flooring samples, so you’re sure to find the perfect carpet for your needs.

4). Dampens Sound. The last benefit of carpeting might not stand out to homeowners right away, but they’re certain to miss it when the carpeting’s gone! Carpet absorbs sound, which is especially useful for busy families with young children or pets and can help bring a little more peace and quite to the home.

If carpeting sounds like the right option for your family, or if you have any other flooring questions or needs, call Floor Coverings International Dakota County today. We’re proud to serve the greater Burnsville area and would love to help you find the perfect flooring for your situation.
