Hardwood vs Carpet – Which flooring solution to choose

wooden flooring

Flooring actually defines your house. It is one of the most important parts of a house’s interior and today you have numerous options available to choose from. This is the point where people become confused between what we like and what would suit our needs as there are lots of options in appearance, colour, material, and style.

Today, we will talk about two of the most popular flooring options, Hardwood and Carpet. Both have their own set of pros and cons. Moreover one has to choose the right option wisely and after careful analysis. To make your decision easier, we have gathered here a detailed comparative analysis of both flooring types. Have a look.

Appearance

In terms of look, both of them have no comparison as it totally depends on individual’s choice and what suits the interior. Hard wood flooring has a classic touch with a luxurious feeling so one would see different styles from contemporary to rustic in it, each is having their own colour, finish and different kinds of wood. The best part is that you can match your interior easily with it as it goes from light shades of brown towards black.

Carpeting has obviously a very different kind of feeling as compared to hardwood flooring. It’s cozier and warmer. It has a broad range of colours, styles and designs. Whether you want a textured one, embroidered, embossed, a huge range is available. You just name it and you can have it. Not only this, the carpets can be thick, thin, hard, sleek or plush so whatever suits your home just go with it.

Maintenance

Carpet is harder to maintain than hardwood flooring. It is because hardwood can easily be swept, mopped or washed. The dust and stains can easily be spotted and removed. But in carpeting, the dust or stains become glued between the tiny fibers. To prevent this situation, one has to vacuum the carpet regularly. But stains require different gels and special chemicals to remove. Nowadays, carpets are made up of synthetic fiber which is stain resistant and much better than traditional carpets.
