Hardwood floors are generally easier to clean than carpeted floors, particularly on a weekly basis. On the other hand, they are more expensive to install than carpet. Hardwood floors can also increase the value of your home in the eyes of buyers. In fact, some buyers will only consider a house that has hardwood flooring.

But, youíre not going to get the soft comfort, especially while walking barefoot at home,that you can enjoy with carpeted floors. It comes down to a matter of price,taste and lifestyle. Which flooring type you go with will affect your homeís appearance, cleanliness and again, value.

Carpeted Flooring Pros and Cons

Pros:

  • Foot protection is a real plus with carpeted floors. Sink your feet and toes into a plush shag carpet and you may not want to put your shoes back on. Carpeted floors are especially welcomed if you have sensitive, tired or injured feet.
  • Carpet insulates the rooms of your house,lowering noise levels. This benefit is most realized if you're walking on the second or third floor of your house. Walking on carpet keeps your family on lower levels of your home from hearing your feet echo across the floor.
  • Go barefoot on carpeted floors and you probably wonít get a splinter.
  • Young children will have padding to crawl on. Toddlers who are learning to walk will also have padding when they tumble to the floor.
  • Cold air wonít nip as hard at your feet during cold months.

Cons:

  • Despite your best cleaning efforts, after several months, your carpet may get stained. You could scrub the stains on your hands and knees and not get all of the spots out.
  • Carpet fibers hold dirt and allergens. Deep cleaners and regular vacuuming are needed to keep fibers free of allergens.
  • Let snags develop in your carpet and you could see a run stretch several feet across the floor.
  • Youíll have to eventually replace your carpet to keep your home in stop condition.

Pros and Cons of Going with Hardwood Floors

Pros:

  • A broom and a mop can keep hardwood floors clean for months.
  • If hardwood floor tiles get damaged, you can sand or refinish them instead of replacing them, saving money.
  • Allergens and dirt have less places to hide.
  • Should you track mud in the house, you can clean it up in seconds with a wet rag.

Cons:

  • Similar to tile floors, hardwood floors can buckle, especially if it gets humid.
  • Polish is required to keep hardwood floors looking good over time. This may not be so bad if you donít mind operating a buffing machine a couple of times a year. As a tip, only buff floors that are not made with refinished wood.
  • Termites can get in hardwood floors.

Both carpeted and hardwood floors get spots on them. Your floors can get spots from water, grease and other harsh cleaners. To reduce flooring damage, consider using environmentally friendly cleaners. Also, protect carpet and hardwood floors from too much sun exposure, as too much sun exposure can take the shine out of carpet and hardwood coloring.
