I like indoor/outdoor carpeting. Mine has a very smooth surface, it is easy to see/find pins and needles. My chair moves easily, it is very easy to clean too :D:D:D

I used to have a laminate floor in my sewing was nice everything swept up easily, then we moved now I have a carpeted floor and the flooring guys said it needed to remain as carpet because of the condition of the concrete under that. We went with the tightest we could so it wouldn't have issues.

I like laminate. Easy to sweep or vacuum. Easy to find dropped pins.

I have Berber patterned carpet. My wheeled chairs move easy on it and it's sound absorbing and pretty.
