Carpet: Wall-to-wall, area rugs or runners, carpet or broadloom, is warm and comfortable underfoot, very affordable, easy to install, and more sound-proof than other flooring materials.
Carpet and carpeting
has outsold every other type of flooring for the last 50 years, and accounts for more than half the flooring purchases made each year.
Because carpet can be applied over almost any subfloor or existing flooring, a thick pile carpet will hide irregularities in subflooring in a way that other flooring coverings can't.
