Carpets are used for a variety of purposes, including insulating a person’s feet from a cold tile or concrete floor, making a room more comfortable as a place to sit on the floor, reducing sound from walking and adding decoration or color to a room. It can be made in any color by using differently dyed fibers, and can have many different types of patterns and motifs used to decorate the surface.
Carpet tiles have the bonus of being easy to install and replaced, making them a wonderful option for homes with high traffic, children, pets or homeowners who enjoy swapping out colors schemes and themes every so often
