Does Carpet Or Laminate Make A Better Decorating Choice?

Copyright (c) 2014 Eli Gali

Dollar for dollar, depending on the grade of carpet and the padding, the average price to have a carpeted floor and a laminate wood floor are virtually equal. Your choice depends on how you use your home.

That sounds a little inane, but it is true. If you have a busy, active family with youngsters who are into sports and are always bringing in a little of the ball field with them, laminate may be your best bet. The same goes with homeowners who love and live with their pets. As a pet guardian you are charged with feeding and taking care of your four-legged friend. This also means taking him to the vet when he is sick - and cleaning up any messes he leaves behind.

Anyone with a carpeted floor will tell you that pet stains are some of the hardest to try and remove. The chore can involve getting down on hands and knees scrubbing the spot, vacuuming it, renting a carpet cleaner or having it professionally cleaned. While is disappears for a few hours or a few days, it always seems to reappear as if the carpet was haunted with it.

Laminate floors generally do not stain and are a breeze to clean. If you have a dog with long toenails, the floor can be scratched - but it does take a lot of toenail. On occasion something can be dropped on the laminate floor that will make a dent. But it would need to be something very heavy. Another check mark on the positive side for a wood laminate floor is that it is 'safer' to use in rooms that are exposed to a great deal of sunlight. Laminate does not fade. Some carpeting will fade in time if exposed to the sun for several hours each day.

Empty nesters, singles or couples without children may prefer carpeted floors. Carpeting is available in every color under the sun and every price grade from very budget-friendly to exquisite and expensive. Carpeting is the best sound insulator. It absorbs a lot of the interior noise. Stand in a carpeted room and then a wood laminate room and there is much less echo in the carpeted one.

Carpeting feels good on the bottom of your feet. On cold mornings you do not have to worry about hopping around on the laminate floor until you find your slippers. Actually, carpeting can lower your energy bills if you are switching from laminate or tile floors. Your local flooring store can probably provide you with energy savings in your particular area.

Carpeting also feels good on the bottom of babies. Children just learning to crawl or walk will be cushioned against falls and spills. Plus crawling on a soft surface is much more appealing than crawling on a hard, cold surface.

One thing that a carpeted floor can do that a laminate floor cannot is give a room the WOW factor when it comes to color and texture. The right color carpeting can make an average room look like an expensive retreat!
