This is really a big joke of the USA. We're basically the only country where carpet is standard. Because people thought it was some sort of luxury. You go to Venezuela or anywhere really, and their homes are tile, wood, or linoleum all over. And they always have been. They never adopted carpet on a large scale.
Stupid fucking Americans have caused so much of a pain in the ass. Trading cozy feet for <insert thousands of drawbacks of having carpet>.
I thought the more logical explanation was that carpet is just a staple in colder places. If you put carpet down in Vene-fucking-zuela or any tropical/temperate place you're fucking retarded. It literally makes NO SENSE, that's why anything south of North America doesn't do it.
