Hardwood floors are generally easier to clean than carpeted floors, particularly on a weekly basis. On the other hand, they are more expensive to install than carpet. Hardwood floors can also increase the value of your home in the eyes of buyers. In fact, some buyers will only consider a house that has hardwood flooring.

But, youíre not going to get the soft comfort, especially while walking barefoot at home,that you can enjoy with carpeted floors. It comes down to a matter of price,taste and lifestyle. Which flooring type you go with will affect your homeís appearance, cleanliness and again, value.

Carpeted Flooring Pros and Cons

Pros:

  • Foot protection is a real plus with carpeted floors. Sink your feet and toes into a plush shag carpet and you may not want to put your shoes back on. Carpeted floors are especially welcomed if you have sensitive, tired or injured feet.
  • Carpet insulates the rooms of your house,lowering noise levels. This benefit is most realized if you're walking on the second or third floor of your house. Walking on carpet keeps your family on lower levels of your home from hearing your feet echo across the floor.
  • Go barefoot on carpeted floors and you probably wonít get a splinter.
  • Young children will have padding to crawl on. Toddlers who are learning to walk will also have padding when they tumble to the floor.
  • Cold air wonít nip as hard at your feet during cold months.

Cons:

  • Despite your best cleaning efforts, after several months, your carpet may get stained. You could scrub the stains on your hands and knees and not get all of the spots out.
  • Carpet fibers hold dirt and allergens. Deep cleaners and regular vacuuming are needed to keep fibers free of allergens.
  • Let snags develop in your carpet and you could see a run stretch several feet across the floor.
  • Youíll have to eventually replace your carpet to keep your home in stop condition.

Pros and Cons of Going with Hardwood Floors

Pros:

  • A broom and a mop can keep hardwood floors clean for months.
  • If hardwood floor tiles get damaged, you can sand or refinish them instead of replacing them, saving money.
  • Allergens and dirt have less places to hide.
  • Should you track mud in the house, you can clean it up in seconds with a wet rag.

Cons:

  • Similar to tile floors, hardwood floors can buckle, especially if it gets humid.
  • Polish is required to keep hardwood floors looking good over time. This may not be so bad if you donít mind operating a buffing machine a couple of times a year. As a tip, only buff floors that are not made with refinished wood.
  • Termites can get in hardwood floors.

Both carpeted and hardwood floors get spots on them. Your floors can get spots from water, grease and other harsh cleaners. To reduce flooring damage, consider using environmentally friendly cleaners. Also, protect carpet and hardwood floors from too much sun exposure, as too much sun exposure can take the shine out of carpet and hardwood coloring.

Whether your attic is 150 or 300 square feet, you can get more from your attic. One of the simplest ways to get more from your attic is to designate this uppermost room as a storage space. Youíll appreciate having made this decision more if you turn your basement into a family room, den, bedroom or separate living space.

Other attic uses include a television room, den, guest room and study area. To beautify your attic, you could add cactuses, hanging plants and other greenery that donít require a lot of water or sunlight to thrive. Build custom shelving into attic walls and you can create a private library. Just make sure that thereíslots of airflow in the room before you use the space as a library.

Prepare your attic for multiple usages

Before you start stacking storage boxes, old furniture and clothes that you rarely wear inside your attic, make sure that the flooring is durable. Thin plywood flooring can give way if too much weight is placed on it.

Also, clean and treat your attic if you find pests droppings. If you start pushing storage boxes inside your attic prior to inspecting and treating the room, you could inadvertently create a good hiding place for pests. Items that you may not want to store in your attic include old books, magazines and photographs. Believe it or not, pests like roaches, find old paper goods attractive. Roaches actually feast on books and other paper items.

Place anti-fatigue padding or rubber tiles over flooring for added protection before you store heavy items in your attic. This way, you could prevent plywood or hardwood floor tiles from buckling or sagging. Well maintained floors make it easier to turn your attic into an extra bedroom or office, should your family grow and you need the extra space years down the road.

Choose great attic ventilation and flooring

Add vents to your attic to improve ventilation. Do this whether you merely use your attic as a storage space or turn your attic into a living or work room. Even if your attic already has vents, you may want to add more vents, especially if you live in an area where temperatures drop below freezing. On cold days, poor attic ventilation can cause ice dams to form. Your attic may also feel damp if itísnot properly ventilated.

Familiarize yourself with local housing codes to ensure that you meet local attic ventilation requirements. Vent choices range from round to rectangular. There are also small, medium and large vent sizes to choose from. Simply adding insulation and upgrading drywall may not offer enough attic ventilation.

To improve airflow in your attic, consider leaving the attic door open during the daytime.Before you open the attic window to increase airflow, check the roof for bird and insect nests. Clear roof drainage pipes and place a screen and attic guard over the window. You can get attic window guards on or offline from housewares stores. Some department stores also sell attic guards.
