Warm and comfortable
The physical properties of carpet make it an effective insulator helping ease the cost of home heating or air conditioning by increasing the R-value of the carpeted space. Carpet is soft under feet for young and old, reduces leg and back fatigue, prevents slips, cushions falls and reduces the risk of falling objects breaking.
Beauty and style
Carpet is available in endless colours, styles, textures and patterns.
