If you drop something on wood it's really easy to repair. Rub it down and refinish. We just had engineered oak put in our sunroom and its fab

Since we had our carpets replaced with laminate in our bedroom my husband hardly ever uses his inhaler! The amount of dust is just the same as if you had a carpet: it's just easier to see, but a Swiffer is a great and quick cleaning fix. If you have a good underlay beneath it, the noise is massively reduced.

Laminate is clacky and cold. Real wood is warm, though clunky. I'd take clunky over clacky any day. Its kinder on the ears IYSWIMgrin
I would have the wood (wood laminate should be ok) with machine washable rug/s for warmth, but we don't have asthma in the house so it's carpet all the way (almost).

Solid wood for any room you spend time in, especially for playing on the floor. Laminate is a plastic surface with a picture of wood stuck on.

thats good to know loves I was thinking a quick swish round with one of those wet wipe mops would be enough.

I've put white laminates in bedrooms and it is very noticeable how dusty they get as they show every bit of fluff. However, they sweep up so quickly and easily! I'm really pleased with them, I can't imagine going back to carpet!

I am considering putting a wooden floor in ds bedroom. last winter was awful in terms of asthma with many trips to a&e. In terms of reducing dust I think a wooden floor would help. I'm worried about noise though, would there be a big difference? Also is laminate or solid wood better for a bedroom?
