Carpet vs. Hardwood Flooring in Murfreesboro, TN

Carpet vs. Hardwood Flooring: Which is Better?

It’s the great debate for every homeowner. And aside from agreeing on paint colors and furniture, it’s the cause of many lovers' quarrels. More often than not, the decision is ultimately made based on the overall aesthetic you’re hoping to achieve. However, there are multiple other factors to consider when toggling between the two—including lifestyle, kids, pets, and finances. 

The chart below can help get you started on the list of pros and cons. But we’ll also detail out the benefits so you can make a decision that’s best for you and your home goals.

How ‘bout that hardwood? 

Hardwood flooring is suitable for just about any room in the house. And in addition to their gorgeous appearance, they can also hold up against most of life’s messes. 

Even in high-traffic areas, like hallways and kitchens, hardwood is made to withstand the test of time. Just be sure that when you are selecting hardwood flooring for your space, you consult with our team of flooring experts to help you explore the different finishes and wear layer options that will best suit your specific lifestyle. 

Most hardwood flooring is water-resistant, but it’s rare you’ll find a hardwood that’s a totally waterproof flooring option. If you have any concerns about potential water damage, but still want the look and feel of a traditional hardwood, you can look into laminate flooring or wood-look tile

Crazy for carpet? 

It may seem obvious, but it’s a definite consideration: carpet flooring is, well, much softer and more comfortable for certain spaces. And depending on the type of carpet you select, you can find options that are stain-resistant and can last upwards of twenty years (just in time for that messy toddler to grow up and move out ?). 

Carpet flooring is also a little friendlier on your budget, and makes for a quieter space. Not to mention, you can add quite a bit of personality to a room with the type of carpet you select. Think a hexagon patterned carpet on an entry stairway that leads into an upstairs hallway. Or, a playroom that brings out every color of your child’s imagination.
