  • We have wood, cork and bamboo flooring. I love it. All is easy to care for and much better for my health than carpeting. Sweep and mop and the mopping dries much more quickly than shampooing a carpet.

    Carpet can hold in dust mites, pet dander and lord knows what else. I have been much healthier since the last of the carpeting when away a couple of years ago.

  • We have berber carpet through the house, except for the foyer, which is hardwood, and the bathrooms are vinyl. I wish we had hardwoods throughout, but I do like my berber pretty well.

  • Both. I prefer the hardwood. It's easier to clean than the carpeting (it doesn't help that I have 3 kids running around on the carpeting either, LOL).

  • We have wood floors throught out the house and area rugs in the living and dinning room. I like wood floors better it's easier to clean and maintain.

  • We have wood floors throughout. We prefer wood, which is why we put it throughout.

  • We have carpet and tile floors. I hate them both for different reasons. I hate that carpet traps allergens and hides, well whatever it hides. I hate that the tile needs to be swept and mopped constantly because I can't stand to feel sand or debris under my feet.. Can't win here.
