Torn between hardwood or carpet? Help
We want to possibly replace our current carpet in the living room and dining room with hardwood or laminate. We have a 3yr old and a awesome hyper dog. I was raised on carpet my whole life and enjoy the comfort and warmth it brings. I can see the advantages of the hardwood with regards to easy clean up when my lil guys has his spills and if the dog or new possible pup has an accident. I'm use to running the vacuum and rug cleaner so thatÃ¢ÂÂs not a problem. I could live without the stains in the carpet, but I'm just not sure which direction to go? I worry about my son who is very active and likes to run around the table a lot falling and getting hurt. I also worry about my dog taking a spill and getting hurt. Am I over reacting here? Should I just let everyone adjust to the hardwood? I think I want to be a hardwood guy, but in my heart its carpet? I think there would be a lot of advantages to the hardwood though? Suggestions?
