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.
Hardwood is more expensive than other types of materials because they are organic, can decay if left unattended and need preserving with special care. If treated well, hard wood can last a very long time and provide quality support underfoot for all the family. Hardwood planked tongue and groove is, without doubt, one of the best flooring materials and provides warmth, durability and a beautifully grained surface suitable for all room types. ore than this, natural timbers mature and improve as they age and are easily maintained and refurbished.
If for example the walls are a pale color, you may find that a natural colored rug fits better in with the room than a purple one would. If the walls are more of a copper color then you would be better off choosing a red colored rug. You have to know which colors go better together and whilst you do not have to go for the same sort of color as the walls, you do have to go for one which compliments it. So you can choose either a neutral color or a color which adds a little subtle touch or a vibrant contrasting color which brings the focus to the rug but which does not clash with the color of the walls.
