Why carpet?

Comfortable. Warm. Hygienic.

Carpet also improves acoustics, dampens sound and is easy to maintain

Comfort and warmth are the key advantages that a carpet floor boasts compared to a smooth floor. But have you ever thought about your indoor environment? Dust and other suspended particles are a major inconvenience for humans and animals, especially for allergy sufferers or people suffering from respiratory problems.

Smooth floors increase the chance of a higher concentration of fine dust particles, while fabric floors decrease this chance. Carpets and rugs absorb the particles and hold them until they’re vacuumed away.
