Default Cats and carpets

I'm moving next month. (I posted about this recently in the context of
pet moving services.) I'm leaving a house which has all hardwood
floors, which have been very convenient for cleanup when one of my
cats goes whoops, as cats are prone to do.

I'm traveling to Chicago to find an apartment soon, and I'm in a
quandary about hardwood floors vs. carpets. Insisting on hardwood
floors would guarantee easy cleaning, but it would pretty much limit
me to older buildings, which would greatly reduce my choices and
impose other disadvantages on me.

How difficult is it to preserve the appearance of a carpet if you have
cats? What coping strategies have you evolved?

can't you lay laminated flooring over the carpets? then if you move again
you can take it with you... looks good too or perhaps get some more litter
boxes? you know the usual stuff that get suggested. try biological soap
powder, followed by surgical spirit removes smells even from toms! and stops
them re spraying there too.
