Barre on hard floor or squishy floor?

Given the choice, what do you prefer/think best?

Most barre vids seem to be using a yoga mat over wood-type floors. The Bar Method workouts use little squishy pads (?) under their feet sometimes?

I have the options of a carpeted floor with yoga mat over (new carpet = squishy thick carpet pad). Or I can drag out my yoga board (very rigid) and put a mat over it.

I'm just wondering about what's healthiest for feet (does squishy lead to overextension of toe joints). I'm also wondering if I'm overthinking this, haha. (Yes!) But I tend to have problem feet so I want to make the best choice before I cause injury...

So what do you prefer for barre: firm or soft flooring?.
