    Default put down wall-to-wall carpeting

    Hi there,

    "The noise level in this office is too high."
    -"Maybe we should put down wall-to-wall carpeting.That would reduce the sound."
    "It would also be expensive to install and maintain"

    I would like to know the meaning put down has in this sentence and also to know what wall-to-wall carpeting is.
    Could you please describe them?

    Thank you loads

    'put down' means install wall to wall carpeting, which is carpet that covers the entire floor from two walls to both the opposing walls. There is usually an underlayment of soft foam that goes under the carpet and the carpeting is stretched and attached to strips of wood that have many sharp tacks in them. Or it can be glued down.

    With "area rugs/carpeting" only portions of the floor are covered. Area rugs are usually just laid on the floor,
