Kids room flooring....

We're in the process of selecting flooring for our Kids room.  We're
budget conscious but want something that will work well.  Currently it
looks like we're leaning towards laminate flooring with an area rug or
similar to cut noise.

However, I noticed when going back over photos of the bay area cohousing
tour we took last October that most of the places we saw had carpet, so
I've been making the argument that carpet will likely be easiest on our
budget and will work better at noise reduction, which I am theorizing
should be the largest factor flooring choice for the kids room.  The
problem is I'm just guessing.

What does your cohousing group have?  Would you use something else?
What do you like or not like about it?  If money were no object, what
flooring would you use and why?  When it was worked into your reserve
study, what life expectancy did you use for your particular flooring
estimating kids room wear and tear?

I guess the same question could be asked of the Kitchen.  It looks like
we're headed towards sheet vinyl.  We almost went for commercial grade
vinyl tile, but our builder had bad things to say about it.
