In the last decade, the trend has been to use hard flooring instead of carpet. However, with advances in materials and technology carpeting has come back into the forefront. In addition to a wider variety of materials - particularly natural materials - the carpet industry has been manufacturing environmentally friendly new selections that look and feel wonderful underfoot.
A berber adds softness and is flat enough to add an area rug in winter.
Carpeting is a fabulous element for interior design. It adds color, texture and can set the tone for your room. It helps delineate areas of your home particularly in open plan designs. Its warmth and softness cannot be duplicated by other flooring selections.
Sustainable carpets now include 100% recycled content PLUS high performance and comfort; that's what using carpet is all about. It's soft and luxurious and feels wonderful to bare feet. New carpeting is a low-VOC (volatile organic compound) emitting flooring choice. New carpets act as a passive air filter, trapping dust, pollen and other particles and removing them from the breathing zone. Studies have shown that people with asthma and allergy problems have seen symptoms improve when they install carpet.
Recycled carpets are tough but soft
