Houzz is the new way to design your home.
January 28, 2014 in Design Dilemma
Our home recently got flooded and is currently under repair and gutted so can't add a picture. We have a small 1500sf home in Hawai'i. We'd like to put carpet in the living room and bedrooms and are unsure about the rest of the house. We had laminate previously which resulted in random blistering possibly from our 4 children washing their hands or melting ice etc. I'm not jazzed on the wood looking tiles, but understand the durability makes it an attractive option. Everyone seems to push the luxury vinyl, but am unsure about the scratches and wear with 4 young children. I liked the 1' x 2' tiles for the kitchen and engineered wood for the rest of the house but thought that too many types of floor in such a small space would be a bad idea. We will have white cabinets and have black granite countertops. Kitchen is small and dark so wanted to lighten up wherever we could. Any advice is appreciated.
