It seems everyone I talk to says something about wanting hard floors or 'upgrading' to wood floors.
It seems everyone prefers wood floors to carpeting.
I don't get it!
Carpet is soft and warm and quiet
When you get animal hair and dirt and what ever else on carpet it stays where it falls. But wood floors it all gathers in corners and can be rushed around by walking past.
Dirt and hair sticks to your clothes off wood floors a lot more then off carpet.
So honestly I see no positives to wood floors other then it's pretty.
I guess it is easier to mop a wood floor then it is to buy a carpet washer and shampoo a carpet but seriously I'd rather vacuum and spot clean carpet then have to sweep and mop so much.
So what do you prefer?
Ps I do prefer a tile floor in the kitchen but everywhere else I like carpet
