What's under your table?

I just bought a table and 7 chairs to fit my family so I cleaned my dining room from top to bottom before we put it in. Our carpet is so shot! Even with a huge rug under the table, the carpet is still awful.

So, what's under your table and do you like it?

 We have that old linoleum. I plan on putting in hardwood next year or late this summer. I do not put rugs near the dining room table ever, lol. Messy and more cleaning. My entire house is carpet free. Except for a few area rugs here and there. And I like it like that. I have dust allergies and carpet is horrible for me.

there is carpet in the dining room, so the kids eat at the kitchen table, and the dining room only gets used for holidays, or parties. about 1-2 times a year I'll move everything around, and shampoo all the main carpets in the house.

I have blue linoleum in my kitchen and no I hate it, but I don't have the money to replace it right now. Soon the whole kitchen is going to get redone.

I liked what's under the table when I first cooked it lol. I'm always amazed at how much food crud I get out from under there even after sweeping. We have linoleum floors - no rug for now with a messy 7 year old and a 4 month old who has just discovered solids.

Hardwood. I love my hardwood floors. I can't wait for them to be refinished this fall.

hardwood here as well.  With 4 kids we avoid carpet at all costs.  We have area rugs in some rooms, but food isn't allowed in those rooms and they get shampoo'd regularly.  

If you do end up with carpeting again, and a rug on top.  Get a plastic carpet protector to go under the rug.

We have nice vinyl flooring in our kitchen and I do like it.  I would love hardwoods though..
