Need help on flooring!
April 22, 2013 in Design Dilemma
After too many nightmarish moves, we have decided to purchase a small house for our 2 boys to live in while attending college. All the houses we saw in our budget needed a lot of work! We now to our surprise, are building a small house that should go up quickly. A lot of decisions to make in a short amount of time. Since these are college boys I don't think carpet is the best choice for the main rooms of the house. The carpet is inexpensive so there won't be much of a credit towards something else. It will have to do in the bedrooms for now. I have been trying to read up on the different types of flooring but I am still confused. We don't want to overprice it but we need something durable. I like the look of wood but not sure which to use, solid(expensive), engineered or laminate. What kind of wood? If I tile it will it look like a bathroom? Too hard, too cold? Maybe a drain in the center of the room with a faucet and hose! LOL, no they are not messy boys but there may be another roommate and I am sure they will have friends over etc. It may eventually become a rental depending on the market when they finish school. If you know anything about flooring please let me know what you think.
