Instead, check out these flooring facts, and call Integrated Flooring Solutions of Indianapolis for more details or a free consultation.


Many homeowners choose carpet because of its cozy nature. It’s easy on the feet and comes in many different colors, textures, and so on. Most carpet also tends to be less expensive than hardwood flooring. Additionally, if you hate using a broom, carpet tends to show dirt less and is easier to clean up with a little vacuuming. The down side to carpet is that it doesn’t hold its resale value as well as hardwood flooring. Homebuyers love the hardwood look and will often note that as a positive feature of the home.


By an overwhelming majority, hardwood flooring is usually at the top of people’s lists when remodeling or purchasing a home. Hardwood floors automatically give a home a classic character and an inviting look that carpet cannot usually replicate. Many people also choose hardwood flooring because it’s less likely to hold in dirt and allergens. So while hardwoods may show dirt more easily, that may be a good thing when it comes to your home’s indoor air quality. The major downside to hardwood flooring—apart from personal preferences—is that it generally costs more for materials and installation.
