RE: carpet and tile flooring?? advice needed

In our basement project we are going to use carpet for tv/gaming areas and pergo for the wet bar area.

In our last basement we had ceramic tile all over and I absolutely hated it. It was just too much tile and made the basement feel cold. It was also hard to clean...for me.

Sounds like you have a good combination.
