Carpet base is a latest development in the flooring industry, which is used to replace the once popular vinyl (cove) base. It has a function of stuffing under it.
The use of a carpet base improves the insulation characteristics and reduces its wear due to the walks on the carpet.
A carpet base also helps in protecting the appearance of a carpet and gives it a more comfortable use. Carpet with a wall base can be used to protect walls from scuffs and vacuum cleaning.
Now days, carpet base is also used as an attractive alternative to conventional baseboards made of vinyl, wood, or rubber.
A carpet base can be fabricated using the same or coordinating carpet as the floor carpet for superior aesthetics and design continuity.
