Carpet has always been a popular option for bedrooms, living rooms, and dens, but we at Floor Coverings International KC South have noticed carpet making its way onto more and more staircases. If you are considering adding carpet to your staircase, read on to see why so many Overland Park homeowners have already done so.
Carpet’s Unmatched Comfort
When it comes to comfort, nothing can compare to the feeling of quality carpet under your feet. A good carpet is soft, inviting, and can bring an element of coziness to any part of the home. Overland Park, Olathe, Leawood and surrounding area homeowners love having carpeted floors because carpet does not get cold like tile or hardwood alternatives. However, carpet can show wear and tear over time, so we often recommend avoiding the use of shoes on carpeted surfaces.
Staircase Noise Reduction
Homeowners often overlook the power that carpeting can add to reducing the noise caused by going up and down the stairs. Whether you forgot something upstairs, need to grab a glass of water from downstairs, or anything in between, it is almost impossible to go up and down wood stairs without squeaking or thudding. By installing carpet on the stairs, you can reduce noise tremendously.
For households with young children, carpet can make a world of difference in terms of safety. With the traction that carpet provides, slipping on stairs is a lot less common. Even with spills, carpet floors are much less slippery than hardwood or other flooring options. On the occasions that slips do happen, falling onto carpet is a lot less harmful than falling onto harder flooring.
