Why Carpets Are A Good Option For Common Areas

Carpets, hardwood floors, and tiles are some of the most widely used flooring options for residential properties. And while each is a great choice in its own right, this blog will largely focus on carpets.

Carpets add warmth to interiors while looking homely at the same time. On top of that, they keep spaces kid and elderly friendly, by cushioning falls and slips, reducing the chances of injuries. This is what makes them perfect for common areas in homes.

Common areas are places in a home where family members often live or move around in. Let’s find out what makes carpets such a good choice for common areas around the house:



Out of all the flooring options mentioned above, carpets are the most budget-friendly. They are cost-efficient in the long run as well as the short run. This means you get to design your living space without having to compromise on style and comfort.

While carpets don’t have the same lifespan as hardwood flooring, they can still last for between 5 to 10 years, depending on how they’re maintained. At this point, it’s useful to mention that carpet installation and carpet cleaning facilities are much more affordable than doing the same for other flooring options.

Sound absorption

Carpets add an element of sound absorption to a room. Other flooring options do not provide this benefit. Add a carpet to a room that’s too echo-y or to one where a lot of noise is made, like a lounge or dining area.

This way, families won’t feel the need to ‘keep it down’ when everyone’s having a good time or even listening to music.

Common areas aren’t prone to moisture and spillage


The most common problem people face with carpets is stains and spillages. Having carpets installed in the common areas of a home ensures that these issues are kept to a minimum as they’re not spaces where people usually eat. Make sure the carpeting is away from areas like the kitchen, bathroom, storeroom, etc.
