Carpet vs Wood

Everyone has a preference. Some people love the cushy, homey feel of a plush carpet throughout their home. Others would rather give their home hardwood floor for the ease of cleaning and a possible drop in allergies. Statistically speaking, it has been shown that buyers will pay more for a home with hardwood then one with carpet.

Hardwood fans boast that their floors don’t hold on to allergens that can sink into the fibers of carpet. They are easy to maintain, don’t stain, and really feel “clean” unlike carpet where you often feel like vacuming is not really pulling up all the dirt and germs.

There can be some downsides to hardwood however. Depending on what kind or type of flooring you purchase, you may leave yourself open to scratching and scuffs from pets or kids toys. There is also the fact that you will be cleaning the floors more often to rid yourself of obvious dirt, dust and pet hair.

We found some great ideas on this website for Hardwood and Engineered Wood Floors: http://www.thisoldhouse.com/toh/photos/0,,20413594,00.html

On the flip side, carpet feels so cozy and warm especially in the winter. It can be ideal for tumbling kids and gentle on the feet. Carpet also comes in a lot more colour options than wood, and is usually cheaper and easy to change.

But what about carpet off gas or the fact that dirt and allergens can be lurking in the fibres? The carpet industry claims that most carpet has been certified as low emitters of VOCs these days and that carpet does not aggravate asthma and allergies. It traps airborne dust particles in the spaces between the tufts, where a good-quality vacuum can dispose of it.

Carpet lost market share in the 1980s and ’90s as hard surfaces became popular. Today, about 51 percent of all floor coverings in the United States are carpet.

Here is helpful and informative link all about choosing and installing carpets: http://www.thisoldhouse.com/toh/photos/0,,20420275_20840343,00.html

For those of us with pets and carpets, I think we can all relate to this story that Deanna told me yesterday. It highlights the unfortunate fact that even if you have the smallest bit of carpet in your home, your furry family member will always find it for the worst reasons. (Warning: The Story Below Contains Some Graphic Content. Finish Your Dinner First)

This morning is a prime example of my love hate relationship with carpet. I have a cat door as I like to let my cats go in and out and be crazy wild animals. But that means sometimes they bring in a mouse or as in this morning’s case throw up three piles of what appears to be The chewed up half digested remains of about a 1 pound rodent. Of all the places in the house to do it they find the small section of carpet I have.

You can wash it but you always know what was there and it never really feels clean.

So at the end of the day, you may have to take a few factors in to account when thinking about the right flooring for your style and taste. And a mixture of both carpet and hardwood (my personal choice) can give you the best of both worlds and add beautiful dimension to your home. Here is a link to an article about combining both flooring styles here:
