Using Carpet In The Bathroom
While many people don’t consider carpeting to be one of the more viable flooring options for bathrooms, the fact is there are a few types of bathroom carpeting especially designed for the job. Here are several benefits using carpet in the bathroom. Warmth must rate as number one in terms of obvious pros for a bathroom carpet. Another pro is that a carpet specially made for the bathroom will prevent you from slipping on what can quickly become a slippery floor underfoot – provided, of course it has a non-slip backing. Other pros are that a carpet intended for a bathroom will also stay odorless even if wet, and it will therefore protect you against bad smalls that might emanate from a carpet not intended for use in a damp environment. It should also protect you against bacteria (which can easily make you sick) that forms so easily in a damp, warm environment.
A soft fluffy carpet underfoot in a bathroom usually looks good – well, as long as it isn’t wet and straggly. And it can add a touch of style to a bathroom too, but mostly when the bathroom is larger than average. In smaller bathrooms it is usually best to stick to bath mats, the type made specifically for bathrooms. While not particularly stylish, they do, at least, fulfill a function.
