Our carpet it pretty worn where our projector is. I would like to have a wood floor in the room (it is my man cave). I have some material left from a project that will do the room. It is a prefinished very dark material. I laid a bunch of it out in the room and 'tested'. I like the color being darker than the old carpet but there is more reflection with the floor. Also, I realize there could/will be acoustic issues. In my 'test' it wasn't bad though. I appreciate your thoughts and knowledge.
I would like to do hardwood as well. Why is wood a problem on the floor, but not the walls?
If it's due to reflections, how much absorption does carpet and a pad really absorb? Carpeting the walls is frowned on because of the high frequency absorption. Why is it ok / desirable to apply that same skewed high frequency absorption to the entire floor?
