I Need Some Feedback -THANKS!
I think we've decided that we will tile the entryway to handle long term wear and tear and then we will put wood flooring throughout the rest of the house. I agree that carpet is a smarter and safer option with crawlers and new walkers in the house (thanks for that reminder ladies) so we might put off the wood until Daisy is a solid walker...but, truth be told I'm itching to do this because I know it will improve the look of our home so much. Carpet is cozy but, never looks as nice in my opinion. I will also need to invest in a big, cozy area rug for our living room as suggested so thank you for that reminder too! You ladies were such a huge help in making this decision so thank you!!
Joey and I are beginning to check out various wood and tile samples at Home Depot and Lowe's and we (or I should say I) are having a very difficult time pinning down what would look best in our home. We are debating on whether or not to have laminate or real wood floors flowing from our front door throughout the entire house (minus the kitchen and bedrooms) or if we should tile the small area that is our entryway and then lay laminate wood or real wood flooring throughout the rest of the house. We know that there are pros and cons to both but a big pro for tile is that it holds up much better under wear and tear (kids) and a front entrance gets a lot, but...will it look as nice as continuously flowing wood? Thoughts, suggestions, likes, dislikes. These pictures are just samples for the record.
