First, you’ll need to consider the traffic levels in your home. If it’s high, and you have a lot of people coming through your home on a regular basis, you’ll want to choose a fiber that stands up well to that traffic. Both polyester and nylon are great for this particular purpose, and both are durable and do a good job of resisting stains, especially when extra stain protection is added.
In areas where there is little traffic, you can afford to choose a fiber that doesn’t have to be so strong and resilient. Bedrooms are a perfect location for flooring like this, and can help to create a calming sensation as you walk across it.
If you have children, this is a great flooring choice for several reasons. First, since children love to spend a good deal of their time on the floor, it creates a warm play space for them to explore. It can also be a safety feature for toddlers just learning to walk. During that stage, falls often happen, and this floor covering can lessen the chance of injury.
