How can you change your house to a home?
You can change your home and transform it from being just a house to a proper home, by the use of personalized touches and some expertise. There are some smaller changes, like changing the curtains or cushions and covers in your home; there are some bigger changes as well, like changing the paint and color of the interior of your home and there are options like changing the flooring of the house but this one requires a lot of work, resources and energy. Changing the flooring in all your rooms is a big task and requires a lot of research and thought before reaching a decision. It can be a difficult task to choose and decide which flooring is the best for your home and for all the rooms in your house. This article focuses on the selection of carpeting or wooden floors for your home and will help you decide which one is the better of the two, to suit your needs and preferences. If you are considering the installation of one of the two in your home, this article may provide you some advice and help in coming to a decision about selecting one.
Wooden flooring is sometimes associated with being rich, stylish, exquisite, elegant, robust, strong and contains some old fashioned warmth. Like every other option, there are pros and cons to having wooden floors but for this particular type of flooring, there are much more pros as compared to the cons.

Wooden floors are often associated with elegance, style, richness and a certain kind of old fashioned warmth. Wood flooring has many pros to offset its relatively few cons. For example, it’s durable; with a little loving care they can last a lifetime. It’s also easy to clean, doesn’t absorb smells (and the smell of a freshly polished wooden floor is wonderful) and is great for people with allergies as it doesn’t harbor dust mites and other allergens.
Wood floors are also timeless – they don’t date or go out of style like some carpets or vinyl flooring options. They’re relatively neutral, which means you can decorate your house in any color or style without worrying about a jarring clash of colors or patterns.
On the con side of things, wooden floors are more expensive than other types of flooring. A cheap “cheat” is to get vinyl or LVT (luxury vinyl tile) flooring in wooden shades and patterns, or you could get reclaimed wood floors, which have the added satisfaction of being sustainable.
Carpets also have their pros and cons. For example, carpets are warmer than any other hard flooring options, like wood, vinyl, linoleum and laminate floors (no cold feet when you get out of bed on a cold winter’s day). They’re soft, which makes them comfy to walk on and sit on, and which adds an element of safety if you have kids who run pell-mell through your house. Carpets absorb sound, so you don’t hear echoes of rambunctious children or barking dogs throughout the house. They’re also more energy efficient, as they provide some extra thermal insulation.
Carpets can be statement pieces. You can be as bold and bright as you like. While neutral carpets provide a blank slate against which you can style your décor. It’s also quicker, easier and cheaper to install carpets than a wooden floor, especially solid wood or parquet flooring.
