When I thought of this I was thinking of the floor but I am hoping people will use Innuendo an Hyperbole to answer the question of al time.

i kind agree on the milk part but your legs will be cold if you don't put carpet down and the floors might want to make you leave the house really bad because you might think there are ghost in your house.

Carpet is good on the stairs....much softer to land on (if you happen to be as clumsy as I, you'd appreciate it!)

I would not put carpets onto most floors, but I would not make them out of wood either!!! OK, so I AM a tree-hugger: looking at woodgrain is kind of like looking at corpses!!!

And as for warmth....ever heard of heated tiles? Nice and comfy on the feet, useful for heating the house (heat rises and all that), reduces dust (versus the heating vents)....and when you can use solar to heat the water that circulates under these tiles, it is also ecofriendly.....I don't see a down side here.

Try spilling milk on a carpet. It will come out, but the smell of sour milk will never leave.

On wooden floors it's not a problem.

Carpets are not solvents for delusion.

Even though carpet is softer, I like the feel of wood on my feet much better.

Stains are a big problem for carpets, wood doesn't have (at least as much of) an issue with a spilled glass of wine or... blood.

OOOOH. Righto.

Well "wood" is obviously better because wood is installed much more easily. I find that wood is much less hairy than "carpet", although you CAN shave "carpet" if you find yourself compelled to do so. However as wood gets older it tends to warp and become more flaccid... although carpet can begin to widen over time as well.

Well, uh... About the FLOORING...

Wood is superior. If you think it is too cold, then install a radiant-heating system and save yourself money on an un-efficient forced air heating system.

Also, you can easily maintain wood for years, while carpet needs to be replaced after about 8 years. Then it is GONE. Hardwood is classy, timeless and easy to clean. Plus, it can be refinished. Carpet cannot.

Now, about that innuendo...

Carpet-stretchers get paid ok money....

Wood-installers get paid much much better... I think it comes down to whether you are stretching carpet or installing the wood in your 'home.'

Additionally, carpet does sag after a few years, whereas, when payed attention to, wood can usually go the distance.

Also, after wood gets saturated, it loses it's rigidity...

To clarify, I love women.

I have to go for wood on this one living in a rental and having white carpet and a dog the maintenance I have to do is very time consuming.
also you can mope pee up from a wooden flore.

Wood is a well rounded device it has been used for years for many different projects. If it starts to fail you can treat it and it will last for a lot more projects it also can lengthened or shortened.

Carpet on the other hand is fun for a wile until it starts to get dirty once this happens the maintenance costs just keep coming. Once it has been used to many times it just doesn't feel right and you have to go out and find all new carpet.
