There are pros and cons for both materials, and the key things to take into account when choosing between them, is your lifestyle and budget. Here is what you need to look at before you make the big decision, whichever material you end up choosing.
It's important to consider the amount of effort you are willing to put into maintaining your floors once they are installed. Before you pull the trigger on a carpet installation for your Dallas home, you have to ask yourself if you are willing to keep up on the vacuuming, and whether you are willing to commit to regular professional cleaning.
When it comes to hardwood flooring, you have to think about all of the moisture issues that can occur, and whether or not you are willing to take a few extra steps like laying down waterproof mats, or instituting a "no shoes" policy to protect the wood. All flooring requires maintenance, just make sure you pick the material that best suits your level of commitment!
Kids and pets
If you have children or pets, it might affect your decision as to which material to go with. Unless you go with a SmartStrand™ carpeting installation for your Dallas home, chances are your kids or pets will wreak havoc on your carpets.
Conversely, pets with large nails can even tear up hardwood floors, too. Be sure to ask your flooring rep about which materials would be best, taking into account these factors.
