Considering this, can carpet be installed over laminate flooring?
Many carpet installers will not put carpeting over laminate. Removing a laminate floor is easy to do because it is loose-laid. Installing wall-to-wall carpeting is not advised because nailing tack strips to the perimeter of the room would restrict seasonal movement of the laminate and could cause it to buckle.
Secondly, is it cheaper to carpet or laminate floor? The cost of carpet is generally much cheaper than the cost of laminate flooring, but laminate flooring has the advantage of being longer-lasting, easier to clean, and less likely to suffer weather damage.
Beside this, can you lay new carpet on top of old carpet?
Carpet tiles can be laid over old carpet with a bit of effort. First off, the old carpet must be thoroughly cleaned. Using a carpet pad or plywood base over the existing carpet can create an even base for new carpet tiles. Existing low-pile carpet can serve as the carpet pad.
Are wooden floors colder than carpet?
It's true wood is warmer than carpet, but carpet often feels warmer to your bare feet. If cold feet are still an issue for you, there are ways you can make your wood floors warmer underfoot.
