Title. Not so many places in my house are non-carpeted so I'm weighing up my options. As I understand paper is an electrical insulator - so would standing on top of newspaper and building on a desk help prevent any static energy generated by standing on the carpet? Or would I be better off building it in a fully non-carpeted part of the house. I know the risk of electrostatic discharge is low, but I'd like to take precautions best I can.
