  • Both have their benefits and setbacks. Having certain unfortunate experience with this, let me explain.

    Carpet:
    Pros - A great insulator, meaning during the winter time, your house will be warm; cheap
    Cons - Very hard to clean; the nastiest particles can bury itself into the lining and it will never come out

    Wood Flooring:
    Pros - Easy to clean and maintenance
    Cons - Very meticulous to set up; very easy to damage; expensive

    Overall, having wooden floors is better for the long run, but if you are on a short budget, carpeting is your only option.

  • Carpets harder to clean but it's really soft...
    Hardwood looks more classy but isn't soft...

  • I never had carpet growing up
    I had hardwood floors at my moms house
    granite/marble floors at my dads house

    I like hardwood or marble tbh, but thats much more expensive
    Carpet is nice sometimes though, but i feel like its dirtier

    • Living room? I've never been in one with carpet... Usually its the bedroom from what I've seen

  • Hardwood floor. My whole house is hardwood floor and I like it that way.
