    Laminate flooring in an apartment

    I’ve been at my current apartment complex for 4 years. While the living room and main areas are laminate flooring, the bedrooms are carpet. Due to wear and tear brought on by chair use, I am hoping to ask the complex if they would consider replacing the carpet with laminate. I would think long term there would be cost savings. Any other selling points to convince them?

    Since it is also easier to push your chair on a hard surface than on carpet, I would also consider this a reasonable accommodation, but the landlord can make you pay for it; and even require you to put carpet back in place when you move out. It's worth a try though.
