Have you ever noticed scatter rugs layered over a hard surface? Yes, that's a great design tool, but it's also functional because carpeting absorbs sound. Hard surfaces don't absorb sounds the way a rug will. The vibrations bounce off the walls and create echos, so you'll hear dinging, muffled conversations, the click of heels, etc.
Unlike some floors that transfer heat or cool, a carpet holds on to it because it has a higher insulation factor, called R-value than others. A warm room will stay warm, while a chilly one will stay that way. The padding adds to this benefit. That also means you'll save on energy costs because there won't be any heat loss.
A rug also provides superior traction so kids and pets can run and still slow down when necessary, minimizing injury. If they slip and fall, it's a lot less painful to fall on a soft surface than a hard one.
There's also a budget for everyone, what with all of the styles and fibers. When properly cleaned and cared for, a rug will maintain it's beauty and performance for years, resulting in minimal replacement costs. You might also save on installation because it doesn't require as much subfloor prep work as other floorings.
