When it comes to flooring, the two most popular options are carpet and hardwood. While the two are vastly different, they both have pros and cons. There are quite a few factors to consider when choosing what kind of flooring you want, but the biggest difference is obviously the feel underfoot.
Carpet is typically softer, warmer, and adds a cozy feeling to a home. In places that have cold winters, carpet is a great option. From wool, to synthetic, the types of carpet can feel endless. Typically, synthetic carpet is recommended because of its price point, its durability, and how easy it is to clean.
Hardwood is a beautiful touch in homes. Because the surface of hardwood floors cools, it can be chilly on your feet during winter months, but it is durable, pretty, and doesn’t need to be replaced as often as some carpets do.
Carpet prices vary based on the square footage, as well as the material. One of the most expensive options would be wool because of how intricate it tends to be. Opting for a synthetic carpet can help reduce carpet prices significantly. Regardless of material, carpet is less expensive to install than hardwood.
Wood prices have always been higher than carpet prices, but currently lumber prices have skyrocketed. While hardwood flooring can elevate a home and increase resale value, it will cost a good amount of money to install. There are two popular options for hardwood flooring: solid hardwood and engineered hardwood. Solid hardwood is more intricate and takes more time to manufacture, while engineered hardwood is less expensive because it is a thin layer sat on top of a plywood base. The engineered hardwood is a good option to combat shrinking and expanding due to weather changes.
Neither one of these is very difficult to clean. Both carpet and hardwood are quite durable and moderately resistant to water. Plus, you can always opt for both in your home! Looking into area rugs is a great way to combine the two styles to create a well-rounded, cozy home.
