Need advice on carpet or laminate in great room
February 24, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Here is the issue... The back door to the back yard is off of our great room in the house we are buying (currently under construction). The kitchen, dining room and great room all flow together, but current plans have the kitchen and dining with laminate floor and the great room carpeted. We have a very hairy dog and also a baby that will be walking in no time. My biggest concern is the dog coming in and out of the back door and getting carpet dirty (we live in the wet pacific northwest). I know there are pros and cons to both carpet and laminate, so considering my situation, which would you do if you were me?
