Hardwood Flooring vs. Carpet

There are many fine things about a warm comfortable carpet between your toes, but what about when you are trying to outfit your home? Hardwood flooring vs. carpet has long been the subject of heated debates. In recent years more and more people it seems have flocked to hardwood flooring in lieu of carpets.

Hardwood Flooring Advantages

Here are a few advantages taht hardwood floors have over carpet:

Cleaning: Everyone knows what it takes to clean a carpet: the best model vacuum cleaner available. You also once in a while need a steam clean or deep clean. Of course if you spill something; juice, wine, spaghetti sauce; you have to basically live with that stain until you can replace it. Hardwood flooring is much easier to clean after and to keep clean longer.

Allergies: If you have allergies to dust, pet dander, or any of the other elements like ragweed, pollen, or other things you can carry in with you to your home and you're dealing with carpet, you know the drill. It's impossible to get these allergens all the way out from your carpeted floor. If you have carpets and allergies then you basically have to muddle through your symptoms until you can get a fresh hardwood replacement.

Style: While carpeting does add a certain look to your home decor, many people have dismissed the style of carpeted flooring as being somewhat "retro" or "70's" or "dated." If you have a big open hearth and a stylish robe, then a carpeted flooring might be what you need. However for modern style, clean lines, and an amazing open concept look, there is little that can replace the quality and look of good solid hardwood floors.
