Hardwood Flooring Vs. Carpets – Pro’s and Con’s

So, you are remodeling your home and leaving all the possibilities open in regard to your flooring? While there is a variety of flooring products available, the most popular market segments are hardwood flooring and carpets. In this blog post, we discuss the pros and cons of each.

Hardwood Flooring
Pro: Unmatched beauty. The look and feel of traditional hardwood flooring simply can’t be compared to other products. When people see a hardwood floor, they think of coziness, luxury, and comfort.

Pro: It is easy to see dirt on hardwood flooring and it is easier to clean than carpets.

Pro: Hardwood floors are susceptible to dings and scratches, but they last much longer than other types of flooring.

Pro: In terms of adding equity to your property and increasing buyers’ appeal, hardwood flooring comes out on top.

Pro: Hardwood flooring commands awe and is generally more impressive than carpet, tiles, and laminated floors.

Con: More expensive than carpets.

Con: Not as soft underfoot as carpets.

Con: Colder and fewer acoustic benefits than carpets.

Carpet
Pro: More budget-friendly than hardwood flooring.

Pro: Carpets can easily hide dirt.

Pro: Very comfortable as the soft floor covering is soft underfoot.

Pro: Warmer and more acoustic benefits than hardwood flooring.

Con: While spills can easily be cleaned, a carpeted floor will need to be replaced much sooner than a hardwood floor.

Both hardwood flooring and carpets are available in a wide variety of styles and colors. Let California Designs, Inc. help you with your home’s interior. Contact us for more information today.
