Carpet vs. Laminate Wood

Okay, I really need your opinion!! We desperately need new flooring in the house. It's not really a want anymore, it is a need. The question is whether to put carpet or laminate wood flooring. Which do you prefer and why? Both Jordan and I thought laminate wood. The more I've talked with people who've used it, the more I'm leaning to carpet. I'm afraid that it will some how get wet and we'll have to replace it. I do love the feel of carpet too. At the same time, carpet stains. We do have a carpet cleaner though. Which do you think is the best choice and why? I need your help!

Depends on where you put it. If it is in an area where the kids are eating or potting, no carpet. Easier to clean up. I like carpet in the bedrooms and living room. I wish we had laminant down our hallway. If we ever get around to it we will put laminant downstairs.

I personally like the look/feel of carpet better, but the wood floor will be much easier to clean. Guess I didn't help much, eh? :)

let me tell you what you HAVE to do....laminate in the living areas...with lrg floor rugs, and most definitely carpet in the bedrooms...we have wood in ours and it's rough on the knees for prayer time

We have laminate in two rooms in our house and the hallway. I love it looks so nice, we used the really light wood which I prefer. the thing about water its not that it will get wet, it can get wet. the problem with it is standing water, if you have a puddle of water on if for two weeks it will buckle. but a little water on the feet wont do anything to it. it can even self dry. but remember no puddles... good luck

Laminate! It looks better than carpet, it cleans easier, and in places you want the feel of carpet, just use big area rugs.
