Homeowners are always asking me should I put carpet or hardwood in my home. While this comes down to personal preference, a few other factors that should consider are the following. Hardwood is generally longer lasting as it can be refinished several times. In addition, it traps fewer allergens and dust, plus adds greater value than carpet. However, carpeting is usually cheaper, has more variety, and more comfortable under your feet. So when you’re remodeling or buying a new home, keep these in mind when making decisions about your flooring and new home.
