Partial flooring install - bad idea?
When I bought my house a year ago, I ripped out the gross carpet and all the sheet vinyl, so all I have now is bare concrete slab in all its glue-stained, paint-dripped, drywall-mud-spattered glory. There are also no baseboards (long story). I'd like to go ahead and get flooring and trim installed, but I also want to do a kitchen remodel that involves taking out a wall between the kitchen and family room.
So, here's my question. Is it feasible to go ahead and put down a floor, and then "patch in" where cabinets/walls were taken out? Or, just do the bedrooms? Or should I do nothing at all until the kitchen is addressed? If it helps, I am thinking either of vinyl planks (Mannington Adura) or engineered wood.
Thanks for any advice and suggestions.
