My husband and I are trying to decide what type of flooring to put in our house. From what I've read online laminate wood seems to be a good thing but i'm not sure. We live in a rural desert area, have young children and pets. We both grew up with carpet flooring but I hate cleaning and it seems like carpet traps everything (dust,pethair). However carpet does seem warmer...Can anyone share their opinions or experiences and help us end this debate???
