I trying to decide on carpet and welcome your input. We will have an indoor/outdoor cat living with us. Is there a particular type of carpet to avoid?
As you will be having a pet in your house you will need a highly durable carpet like the wool carpets, avoid using synthetic carpets, you may also check the wool carpet manufacturers online.
Try wood. Carpet is nasty.
I would try carpet because it's easy to do carpet cleaning and it enhances the look of the floor.
