Carpet is by far the most cost-effective flooring material out there. The majority of carpet is made from synthetic materials, although wool carpets are available. No other material can beat the sound-absorbing characteristics and softness of carpet. Contrary to popular belief, people with concerns about dust and allergies can still choose carpet, as it will trap the particles, allowing you to vacuum it up when you clean your home.
Carpet is suitable for most areas of the home, except for washrooms and entrance-ways.
