I prefer carpet. It's much easier to vacuum than to mop.
I currently have carpeting throughout the house (except kitchen/bathrooms). When I can afford it, I'm thinking of putting in hardwood flooring with some comfy area carpets.
carpet is soft but I hate vaccuming...
I like hardwood flooring with area carpets...
Depends on the room. Hardwood is nice in a kitchen, dining room, bedroom... while I prefer a carpet in the family and living room.
Hard, like maple.
I have carpet, but I'm seriously considering the hardwood floor route. The carpet shampooer and I aren't getting along at the moment.
I have carpeting throughout except for my entryway which is hardwood and my kitchen. My master bath is also carpeted, the other two not.
That would give you hard wood..
Hardwood floors, it is hard to slide across carpet while wearing socks
True, but it's hard to generate enough static energy to shock someone on hardwoods floors.
Oh but it can be done
Hardwood,carpet is too hard to keep clean,holds a lot of dust.
Doesn't matter if you have the best vacuum/steam cleaner,known to man..
