Although carpeting appeals to many homeowners, more and more people seem to prefer hardwood floors, laminate flooring, and natural stone or tiles.

Carpeting can warm up a room and does offer advantages, such as comfort, sound absorption, and insulation -- especially with a good quality carpet padding underneath.

If you choose the right color, style, and density for your needs, then carpeting can be a choice you'll be pleased with for years. It may have a downside, however.

While carpeting does often look great shortly after it's installed, wear and tear does take its toll on both its appearance and cleanliness. If you're thinking about replacing or covering your existing flooring with wall-to-wall carpeting, you may want to reconsider your choice if you fall into any of the following categories:

Home seller: Although a brand new carpet is going to be less of a turnoff than an old, trampled carpet, many home buyers are expressing a strong preference for hardwood floors and other types of flooring. How long your carpets stay clean and new looking will vary, but time is not on your side! Permanent staining, fading, and wear and tear is almost unavoidable in a few short years. Regular vacuuming and professional steam-cleaning can help keep your carpets looking their best, but sooner or later, they're going to deteriorate and begin to look shabby. For that and a variety of other reasons, today's house buyer tends to look down upon homes that have carpeted flooring -- no pun intended!

Pet owner: It's a toss-up whether pets or young children are the number one enemy of carpeted floors! While there are many products that can remove spots and neutralize odors, some have been known to fade colors and leave you with permanent lighter spots on your carpet. Once that happens, no amount of vacuuming, wiping, or steam cleaning is going to help! Even the best trained pets do have accidents every now and then, and if you don't discover it right away, you'll find yourself dealing with difficult-to-remove stains and odors!

Allergy sufferer: It's no secret that carpeting tends to lock in dirt, dust mites, pet dander, pollen, dust, and other assorted allergens. Using a vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter (High Efficiency Particulate Air) is one of the most effective ways to temporarily improve air quality in carpeted rooms. Hiring a carpet cleaning service once or twice a year also helps. If you, any member of your family, or frequent visitors have allergies or other respiratory issues, it's very possible that your carpeting may worsen their symptoms.

The good news about carpeting is that there are stain-resistant products that are easier to clean, more durable, and less prone to discoloration. If you are considering buying a stain resistant carpet, it's always a good idea to check the warranty to make sure the manufacturer backs up their claims with a solid customer satisfaction policy.

If you've recently put your home on the market -- or are considering doing so in the near future -- home staging is a priority which will soon take front and center!

Since "presentation is everything" when trying to catch the interest of prospective buyers, it's crucial to be able to see things through their eyes.

Unfortunately, being able to accomplish that objective is next to impossible because, as a homeowner, you're looking at your home and property through a completely different lens than the rest of the world. The longer you've lived in your home, the more your objectivity is compromised.

Here are a few reasons why it's really difficult to "see the forest for the trees" when it comes to home staging:

First of all, there's the emotional aspect of owning a home and seeing your life unfold there over a period of years. That's especially true for first-time homeowners, parents of growing children, and people who have sunk a lot of money, time, and energy into improvements and customization. Once you've added personal touches to your home to reflect your own tastes, personality, and lifestyle, you're viewing your home through a unique perspective that may cloud your objectivity as a home seller.

Solution: Think Like a Business Owner

For the same reason business owners and executives hire outside consultants to tell them how to improve management efficiency or profitability, home sellers often need professional marketing guidance from a real estate agent or home staging consultant. Getting input from home decorators, landscapers, or home improvement contractors may also provide you with helpful ideas, but their recommendations may not always be the most economical and cost effective.

When staging your home to enhance eye appeal and attract the most potential buyers, a good guiding principle to keep in mind is ROI or "return on investment." While you don't want to sink more money into sprucing up and staging your home than necessary, you do want to cast it in its best possible light. Depending on how recently your home has been updated or improved, your investment in home staging may be relatively inexpensive. On the other hand, if you haven't updated, repaired, or made improvements for more years than you care to remember, the cost of making your home irresistible to buyers may be a lot higher!

One More Scenario

If your tastes could be described as eclectic, "off the wall", or otherwise out of the mainstream, you might need to consider a major overall in the look and feel of your property. Unless you're lucky enough to have it be a "sellers' market" at the time you're putting your house up for sale, it's generally advisable to make your home appealing to as wide a range of potential buyers as possible. An experienced real estate professional is usually in the best position to provide the guidance you need to accomplish that key objective.
