    We just put laminate flooring in the sewing/office room. Love it, easy to clean, dust mop, and I have rubber wheels on my sewing chair no problems. Had a carpet before, wish I had done this a long time ago.
    Believe, it can be done!

    I have laminate floors and love them because the chair is easy to slide on and it is so easy to clean with all the threads and all.

    I have carpet but only use the long pins with yellow plastic heads. No problems seeing them, and they stick up out of the carpet. I've used it for 7-8 years now and it doesn't show wear from wheeled chairs....and this was cheap carpet! Just basic inexpensive low pile from Home Depot. I am not a shoes wearer in the house so it's warm and soft on my tootsies too.
    Mistakes are just opportunities to invent a new quilting technique!

    I have hardwood floors in most of the house. I use wooden stools and have felt pads under everything. I bought two or three office type chairs and never found one that was comfortable to me.

    I agree with loving the laminate flooring. So easy to sweep up!!

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    You might also check into bamboo or cork. Both wear great, easy to care for & last a long long time. But, laminate is cheaper & is easy to care for. We had it in our last house & we loved it. Just don't get to light a color Or to dark. Happy floor hunting.
