First, any fabric will absorb sounds better than a hard surface. Sounds and echoes can bounce off the walls. It's hard enough getting a baby to sleep in the first place; the last thing you want to do is disrupt that slumber, especially since that's usually the only time a parent gets to rest.
If you do insist on a hard surface, be sure to also include textured wall hangings or scatter rugs to catch the vibrations.
This is always the case for anyone, whether you're considering flooring in Fort Worth or an installation elsewhere
Second, it won't be long before that baby starts to crawl or walk, and there are bound to be a lot of falls while he or she is learning. Carpet installation is going to provide soft falls. By the way, Dallas, that goes for not just the nursery, but anywhere kids or pets run, or if you have elderly residents.
Third, it just gives a room a warm and cozy feeling, but that's not to say it's too hot for Dallas. It absorbs temperature, so if the room is cool, so will be the floor.
What kind of carpet is best for the nursery?
You want to give the baby the best start to a healthy life and natural is always better. A good all-natural is wool, and don't let that white color fool you. Wool has oils that make it inherently stain-resistant and durable.
If that's a little out of your budget, ask your flooring expert about some of the low-VOC synthetics on the market. It's also a matter of your taste. You have plush and fluffy high piles, like the Frieze and Shag, as well as the velvety Saxony. Low piles, like Berbers, tend to be a little sturdier.
Is a hardwood flooring installation appropriate for nurseries?
This flooring is a classic, so it will never go out of style, but there are some things of which you need to be mindful. Wood floors are susceptible to wear and tear, so you might want to put a big area rug over it if you have a lot of foot traffic. Just make sure the rug is firmly anchored so no one trips and falls.
Also, keep in mind that wood can be damaged by excess liquid, so it may not stand up to dropped sippy cups, bottles, and other items.
