Choosing flooring is all about lifestyle and value. When choosing a floor where family and friends most congregate, consider aesthetics, durability, comfort and maintenance.
Then factor in your lifestyle; for instance, do you have children or pets, will there be a good deal of traffic in this area, and last but not at all least consider value, not just cost. Sometimes spending a little more can add years to your flooring and save you money in the long run.

However, keep in mind that this is by no means the most comprehensive information about flooring, but it should help guide you in your decision.
