One of the great things about having carpet as your flooring is that because it’s soft, you can basically sit or lie down anywhere you want. Your kids can crawl around the floor without having to bruise up their knees. There are some disadvantages though such as it’s harder to clean spilled liquids and dust and bacteria tend to stick to the carpets more. This can cause some people to experience allergies. Now with hardwood floors, you don’t have these problems but you do have the problem of having a surface that may be too hard to lie down on or for your kids to play on.
What you can do is get a floor cushion. These things are basically giant pillow like objects that can be placed on the floor to help provide more comfortable room to lie down or sit on. Instead of just sitting on the couch, these floor cushions will allow you to have more seating options. They are great to have to allow your kids to lie on the floor or play without having to hurt themselves on the hard floor.
These cushions come in all different designs and sizes. You can get large floor cushions or small one. Some are square shaped while others are oval shaped. They can be made of different materials as well. You should be able to get these for about $15 to $50. It depends on the size and type of cushion you get. A large floor cushion will normally cost more than the smaller ones for example. You can buy these online where you can look at pictures of the many different ones that are available for purchase. Even with shipping costs, you can sometimes find them cheaper online than if you went to the store to buy them.
I have lived in both a house with carpets and a house with hardwood floors. Although the hardwood floors look nicer and are easier to clean, sitting on the floor is no longer an option. With the carpets, you can basically roll around on them if you want. As a kid, my siblings and I would do things like cartwheels and jump around on the carpet a lot. Had we grown up in a house with hardwood floors, we wouldn’t have been able to do that. Of course, if you don’t have kids or your kids are all grown up, then this might not really matter as much.
Either way, having floor cushions can really come in handy if you want to create more space to sit or lie down on. They are especially useful if you have guests over for a movie night where there might not be enough room on the couches. These cushions are definitely a good choice to consider if you are looking into getting some type of padding for specific places in your home. Even if you have carpets, these cushions are still great since they will provide extra padding and comfort of the user.
