If you still insist on carpeting, please consider not using carpet padding. Not only are you paying more for the purchase and installation of this padding, but you also are shortening the life of the carpet. So there is more material being used, more chemicals, shorter carpet life, and it is harder to clean, since the padding is like a sponge, absorbing and collecting dirt and stains and odors that are almost impossible to reach without using even harsher chemicals.
Wall to wall carpet can be installed over any other flooring. You have so many choices to choose from in carpeting texture, softness and color. Stain resistant carpet is a great idea for families with small children just learning to walk. If you hate stepping onto a cold hard floor in the morning carpet is perfect for you.
Ceramic clay tile allows for a wonderful deal of customization in terms of colours and displays. However grout is able to be a bit of a pest when attempting to polish these tiles although not including grout, they are painless to maintain. Also ceramic tiling can be a little solid on the legs so if you suffer from some leg or feet issues you might want to steer clear of this option. Using ceramic tiling can furthermore be a little chilly especially in the winter months so make sure you have on a few thick socks while running on it.
