I am thinking about removing the carpet in the house due to my kids allergy.
I don't feel like putting concrete floor in their rooms, and the laminate floor is so cold to walk on bare foor in the winter.
would harwood be a good choice?
You could also go with a tiled floor installation. It's very easy to clean, you don't have to worry about scratches or stains and you coud also install heat coil under the tile so it wouldn't be so cold on your childrens feet.

Hardwood will be just as cold as laminate, ceramics/porcelain/stone, type of radiant flooring to consider (elec. or coolant) ? Tiled is more energy efficient. Boiler/Coolant supply will both heat and cool. Elec is only a winter solution and less efficient under hardwood.
Hi Kate! I realize that you stated in your post that you weren't interested in a concrete floor. I just wanted to make you aware of decorative concrete as a lot of people are not fully aware of all that is possible. These finishes also are ideal with the heating system you mentioned. I am a decorative concrete contractor and would be happy to answer any questions or supply you with an info package.
