The answer to this questions depends on what you’re most worried about when it comes to your home. Trying to avoid mess and difficult cleanup? Steer clear of dirt- and dust-trapping carpet that requires a vacuum to clean. Stains aren’t easily managed in a carpeted room. A floor that has a hard surface will be easier to clean and won’t trap as many potential allergens.
That being said, carpet is a good choice if you’re looking for added safety. If your kid is prone to bumps and bruises, a carpeted floor might be worth the extra cleaning time.
A good compromise would be a hardwood or laminate floor with area rugs. That way, you can have some extra padding without the pain of cleaning a carpeted room.
