Carpet vs. Wood vs. Vinyl: Which Floor is For You

When it comes to the type of flooring we choose for our home, it often boils down to personal preference.

There are, however, a number of differences between the various flooring types that you should be aware of before making a purchase.

Carpet, for instance, is the most comfortable and warm of the three and an ideal option for households with young children or pets.

On the other hand, carpet is a lot harder to fully clean and is more susceptible to hoarding dirt particles and harmful bacteria than wood or vinyl.

Wood floors are undeniably the most visually pleasing of the three, and work as a neutral base you can plan the rest of your décor around.

Wood floors are also, of course, the hardest of the three and may not be the most suitable option if you have young children in the house.

Vinyl floors have become quite popular in the last years thanks to the range of designs and colours you can get this option in.

Vinyl floors are also very easy to clean and are waterproof, making them ideal for kitchens and bedrooms.
