Carpet or Hardwood?

Carpet or Hardwood?

Posted on

Thinking of redesigning your home? One of the main points that can cause any homeowner to struggle is whether they have their floors be covered in carpet or hardwood. Of course, there are benefits to both – however, there are many factors you must take in ahead of time.

Today we will be talking about whether your home would be best fit for carpet or hardwood, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of both. Take these tips to heart while planning out your new interior design plan!

 

Carpet

Carpet can make a room pop by adding designs and colour to it. Using the right colour carpet can make your furniture stand out even more to guests when they walk in the room. However, it’s very important that you take your furniture into account before choosing which carpet you’d like to use. There is nothing worse than adding carpet to your living room, only to find out it very much clashes with your couch. Carpet can also be more difficult to clean, especially if an accidental spill happens!

Another huge benefit of having carpet is, of course, the warmth it provides your feet when walking. Never again will you have to walk into your living room only to be greeted with freezing cold floors. The warmth and softness of carpet provide you with a sense of physical comfort that cannot be matched.

 

Hardwood 

Is there anything more lovely than a nice hardwood floor? Walking into a home with a well-kept hardwood floor is one of the most beautiful aspects of a home. The beauty of the hardwood demands respect from the entrants.

Hardwood is also great for its versatility. You can use almost any furniture with hardwood floors and it’ll likely match. With its ease of cleanliness, you can also be sure that your home will shine whenever guests come over, giving your home the look of luxury.

Of course, hardwood often means cold floors, meaning you may have to wear slippers in the winter. Hardwood floors, while easy to keep clean, can be difficult to upkeep. While they are known to be long-lasting, you may have to refinish them every few years – otherwise, you may find they lack the shine it used to have.

 

Deciding between hardwood floors and carpet can be a very difficult task. However, if you take these tips into account, you may find yourself having an easier time deciding. Remember, before deciding on hardwood vs. carpet – take your furniture into account.
