As a Briton, I of course have carpet in the bathroom which means that it's best to sit down to piss after a skinful of lagers. Nice
Had that at my old house, not very convenient!
I have a new house and it has about 1400 square feet of carpet and 400 square feet of sheet vinyl. It is a two story so I will keep the carpet on the second floor (all bedrooms) and replace the carpet on the first floor with hardwood and the vinyl with ceramic once I see the first sign of wear.
The reason we didn't do this right away is that we decided to upgrade the the things that are hard to change later, like whirlpool tub, full mirrors in each bathroom, better cabinets, above stove microwave, insulated garage door, bigger patio, better plumbing fixtures, stuff like that....it added up.
Hate carpet, but the stuff is brand new. I also hate the 12" square tile everyone uses. I plan on using 6 or 8 inch tile in the kitchen and breakfast nook and 4 inch in the bathrooms, much better look IMO. I am looking at the new Bruce floating real hardwood floor as I am on a concrete pad and the foam subsurface of the floating floor will provide a little cushion and insulation. Not crazy about the laminate 'hardwood' but it is easy to maintain, got it for my Moms house and it really does not feel or look like wood to me, but thats what she wanted.
