Is it safe to raise a baby in an apartment with a polished concrete floor?

My wife and I are planning to have our first baby in the next year or two. We live in an apartment that we really love. Is it a problem that the apartment has polished concrete floors? I'm concerned that the floors would be too hard on a crawling baby's knees, and too dangerous for one learning to walk. We could buy area rugs, but I wonder if we could realistically hope to confine said baby to a carpeted space.
I'm sorry if this is a naiive question. Am I overly worried? Are area rugs likely to be an adequate solution? Or should we plan on moving?
