No other material can compete with it in this regard, except for carpets that we will not consider as a type of floor.
The carpets are fluffy and that’s why it’s a pleasure to step on them at home. Also, if you choose soft and pleasant touch textile fibers (most are) you will love to walk barefoot on it. This is one of the reasons why the carpet is especially recommended in bedrooms and rest rooms.

Get a good cutter that allows you to cut the leftover cleanly.
As for maintenance, and despite the bad reputation of the carpet, it is not especially complicated or tedious, although it is necessary keep it clean by vacuuming it frequently.
