Carpets versus hard floors


Some people prefer carpets while others prefer hard floors. When I had enough vision to appreciate the beauty of hard wood, it was my preference but now that I need to be more careful with objects, my preference has definitely shifted to the carpet.

My reasons are very simple; if anything falls, it will not break nearly as easily as if it falls on a hard floor. Having said this, however, there are a few things to consider. If something falls on a carpet, it may be more difficult for me to find because of not being able to hear where it has fallen. If it falls and breaks then this is more problematic for me.

If something falls on a hard floor then I can probably hear more quickly where it has fallen but if it breaks then the problems are just as bad as if it has fallen on a carpet. It may be easier for me to clean up breakage and spills on a carpet but this is sometimes debatable. Breakage is easier to avoid with carpets.
