Houzz is the new way to design your home.
Carpet or Hardwoods
July 14, 2014 in Design Dilemma
I'm redoing a basement family room. it's is fairly large, and i've had both carpet and hardwoods (engineered) down there in the past. the carpet made the room feel warm and cozy. The engineered, while beautiful and a bit more maintenance free, left the room feeling "colder", even with wool area rugs. additionally, i thought the area rugs made the room more "disjointed", if that makes sense.... doing the whole thing over again (due to water damage) and am leaning towards carpet again. but hubby wants wood. So, really boiling it down to resale value, and want to do a general poll of Houzzer's to see if the preference is for carpet or hardwood.
