Do You Have Hardwood Floors or Carpeting?

Though I grew up in houses with wall-to-wall carpet, most of my adult dwellings have had hardwood floors, which I've come to love. What do you have in your house?

carpet for the bedrooms only - i don't like getting out of bed in the mornings and putting my feet on a cold floor. guess tht explains the heated bathroom floors that i put on a timer so it's warm in the am ;-)

When we moved into our new home we had a combo of Tile (florida effect) in the Kitchen breakfast area, bathrooms, & the entry foyer & carpeting in living room, dinning, den, & bedrooms. We also brought along with us 2 cats & 1 dog. My sister & I got so sick of cleaning the animal tracks all over the carpet that we pulled out the carpet (by ourselves!!) (btw it is really great to tear something like that up, very exhilarating), laid the proper sheets & istalled hardwood flooring into our bedrooms. I must say that was the best 2 weeks ever spent on something soo beautiful.

My house was built in 1961 and I have hardwoods everywhere except for the bathrooms and kitchen. I had some lovely vinyl in the kitchen but I put down ceramic tile....much better.

i live in the middle east, which is all about marble/tile flooring. hardwoods are still my favorite, but just about anything is better than carpet.

I have the original hardwood floors from 1890 in my home and they have been lovingly refinished and are beautiful. Only the bathrooms and kitchen have ceramic tile. Although, I want to change the kitchen to hardwood to match the rest of the house and its character. I'm planning on hardwood floors and possibly some bamboo in the second house (the getaway/vacation home) I will be building down in Santa Fe.

Our home is fully tiled. Shiny, light coloured tiles which look fantastic but are really hard to keep clean.

we had cork floors put in our house, which are very environmentally friendly and look awesome!!! They're super easy to keep up too. I also have Saltillo tile in my kitchen, which I love...

We have custom tile floors with patches of shag carpet downstairs. Upstairs is all shag carpet.

We uncovered the stunning hardwood floors where I grew up several years ago, and also had them refinished so that they are GORGEOUS. They're like new now, and have inlaid darker strips along the walls, and geometric shapes in the corners. 10000x more elegant and clean than before when we had carpeting in my room and the hall! After seeing the comparison, I've loathed wall-to-wall carpet, and so at my new house I'm really happy with our wooden floors, despite the fact that they're not hardwood, they're softwood. They're the recently refinished original Douglas Fir floors and they're a beautiful color!

We got rid of all our carpet, tile, etc and installed handscraped hickory floors throughout the house (and oak in our kitchen). I loooooooooove it so much! :D

My house in Va Beach has laminate floor downstairs & carpets upstairs. My apartment in Richmond is all carpet. I like a mix of both though.

it might have something to do with the reason why I ABSOLUTLY HATE brown and beige (the wall colors).... Oh, and did I mention the old brown sectional that we finally got rid of a few years ago...

Wait for it ... I have OLD poo-poo BROWN carpeting that my mom had put in when my brother and I were little kids. It's still IN!!! ARGH!!! But since It's still good, I don't want to waste money on getting rid of it.
