I used to like wall to wall carpet, but after years of having to steam clean carpets because of pets and children? I'm a fan of laminate floor above hardwood floors. Laminate is much easier to care for and much easier to install. If you have ever spent weeks sanding down a hardwood floor and then coating it? You'll understand why laminate is easier to install. Water spilled or those pet accidents on a wood floor can create issues if it's not caught immediately, that's not a problem with laminate. There is really less cleaning time with laminate versus carpet when you consider no vacuuming or steam cleaning and for many it helps reduce allergen issues.
