Hardwood Flooring vs. Carpet

The Stir Bloggers

hardwood flooring, carpetMoms in the Home Interior Decorating Ideas and Tips are discussing which is better: hardwood flooring or carpet.

SuperMomof3Kids says, "I hate carpet with a passion! I don't care how clean you are or how much you vacuum, under that carpet is a hiding place for dirt, dust, and germs. I have hardwood in my dining room, hallway, and soon to be in the living room. Our large family room has concrete floor that we are getting ready to stain and seal if we can agree on a pattern! The kitchen and bathrooms are all ceramic tile. 

MamaCasey2008 says, "We have carpet. My DH used to have hardwood floors in another place where we were living. They were beautiful but always got dust bunnies, lol! I like the carpet because it's warm in the cold winter months and more padded for when the kids tumble.

ohwrite says, "I have carpet in my new home, but had hardwood in the house we just moved from. I would like to keep the carpet in the bedrooms, but we'll eventually put hardwood in the living and dining rooms.

I'm in-between. I currently have hardwood flooring throughout my apartment (except tile in the bathroom), but I think it would be nice to have carpet in the bedroom...in the winter it would make it much easier to climb out of bed!
